Basketball Spotlight 10U Award Winners

Team Nelson Dominated The Region

The 10U Division was a joy to watch this year and we had some very competitive games. We would like to honor some of the top coaches and players for their successful seasons.

2011 Basketball Spotlight 10U Award Winners

Team Of The Year: Team Nelson
The Delaware/Chester based squad won the Baby Baller Bonanza, MDC and finished #9 in the country. They have some of the top talent in the region and have a good chance of starting a dynasty. We look forward to seeing them next season.

Player Of The Year: AJ Hoggard (Team Nelson)
“McBuckets” put the team on his back when things got serious. He steam rolled the crew to several championships and loves playing under pressure. Now he must be ready for teams to send junk defenses his way next season.

Coach Of The Year: Howard Hudson (Team Nelson)
Yes, Team Nelson swept the award category. Hudson guided his boys to a lot of hardware over this season. He really showed some grit during the AAU Nationals in which they finished in the Top 10. Howard’s experience on the circuit helped out a lot.

Most Outstanding Player: Jaheim Tanksley (Natural Ballers)
Tanksley put on a show in just about every Basketball Spotlight event. He has deep range for a player his size and is equipped with a sick handle. During the Baby Baller Super Showcase he proved to be one of the top guards in attendance.

Best Playmaker: Justice Ellison (Fairfax Stars)
The southpaw has some serious flair in his game. He can dribble his way out of trouble and breakdown defenders in the process. Ellison also has the strength and accuracy to shoot the ball from the cheap seats.

Best Shooter: DJ Jackson (CBC) Jackson has a mean stroke and showed it during the Baby Baller Bonanza. He drained several deep treys and a few mid range shots. He can fill it up in a hurry and from anywhere.

Best Prospect: Wendell Moore (Carolina Gaters)
Moore could be a scary player in a few years. He already wears a size 13 shoe and can palm a basketball. He has some skills and once his game and size meet at the top he might be a monster.

Best Passer: Justin Money (Team Rebels)
Money loves setting up teammates. He slices through the lane and usually catches teammates cutting. He surveys the floor like a surgeon while running the show for this Chester squad.
