Basketball Spotlight MDC 13U Top Scoring Guards

Mustapha Heron (Gauchos)

The Basketball Spotlight MDC 13U Division talent was so deep we decided to break it down by position. Here’s a breakdown of the top scoring guards that heated up at the MDC

Basketball Spotlight MDC 13U Top Scoring Guards

Mustapha Herron Guard (Gauchos)- The lefty received big praise from many onlookers. His improved perimeter skills are very noticeable including shooting and creating off the bounce. The southpaw had a huge weekend in terms of offensive production. He posted 21 points in their memorable battle against Wilson Blue Devils and 19 markers in their quarterfinal loss against F.A.C.E.S..

Diondre Overton Guard (Wilson Blue Devils)- Don’t be surprised if you hear a lot about this kid in years to come. He has great size and unique guard skills. He was a constant match up problem and used his height to score over smaller guards. I expect some big things from this kid.

Jabri McCall Guard (Team Rebels)- I think McCall might be one of the most underrated talents around. There are not many defenders that can stop this kid from getting to the cup. His biggest asset might be his ability to finish off drives no matter the size of the shot blocker. He demonstrates great body control and touch.

Tyler Jones Guard (CJ Future Stars)- When playing 13U Jones takes on the scorers role. He can hurt you with a fluid jump shot or by dropping buckets in traffic. He torched several teams in the Blue Division while also running the show for their 14U squad.

Darryl Caldwell Guard (Montgomery County)- Caldwell once again put up decent numbers at the Spotlight. The combo guard has a mixture of scoring and setting up teammates. He was the team’s leading scorer this weekend.

Azzur Taylor Guard (F.A.C.E.S.)- Taylor supplied his squad with a spark plug off the bench. The lefty played lockdown defense and hurt the opposition with a few clutch shots. He understands and plays his role to the fullest.

Anthony Munson Guard (SI Ironmen)- Munson is a smaller version of McCall. He slashes through the lane and finishes off plays with the best of them. He has good size for his position and a nose for the cup.

John Jenkins Guard (CT Elite)- The strong guard used his strength and craftiness to dart his way to the tin. He led the team in scoring and a championship game run. His frame makes him difficult to defend.

Jagan Mosley Guard (F.A.C.E.S.)- Mosley is the glue player to this team. He can play multiple backcourt positions on the offensive end and guard the 1 thru 3 on the defensive end. His confidence has grown with his size and offensive production.
