Top Performers

Qon Murphy Guard (CB Spiders)- Murphy woke up in the finals. He ran the floor well and spotted up in the corner to nail a couple of trey balls. The Spiders talented guards kept IZOD’s defense rotating which opened up Murphy to deliver some crushing shots.

Zach Butler Guard (CB Spiders)- Butler was one of the players that made Pierre Louis work for every shot. He denied him the pill and forced him to use a lot of energy to find an open look. Offensively, he also contributed by nailing a huge trey at the top of the key and getting a few easy buckets in transition.

Ty’shon Alexander Guard (CB Spiders)- This kid has a chance to be a very special player. He hurts the defense in a variety of ways. Alexander uses his size advantage to see over the defense when passing and stretches over shot blockers when scoring. His breakdown ability is high level and he always seems to make the proper basketball play. If he stays on course he should be one of the top guards in America.

JJ Watson Guard (CB Spiders)- Speaking of guards, Watson once again proved his can get buckets easy. Despite sitting out most of the third quarter Watson gave the defense a taste of his pull up and fade away scoring skills. Every shot he releases from the field seems to have a chance to swish the net. But surprisingly he does need to improve his free throw shooting.

Nate Pierre Louis Guard (Team IZOD)- Nate “The Great” had to work for every bucket he got. The Spiders kept a fresh body on him and used their athletes to make him double clutch as much as possible. He gave it his all but eventually ran out of bullets.
