Basketball Spotlight Feature: Green Means Business

Quade Green (Team Final)

Quade Green made a name for himself last season running on the circuit with Philly Freedom Stars. The dynamic guard posted numbers at the Spotlight events but really exploded at the AAU Nationals. After turning out the Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase Green decided to move over to Nike Powerhouse Team Final.

Team Final Coach Orlando Hidalgo is excited to have Quade Green on his squad. “He has that Philly ball playing attitude in terms of determination and skills. He has slick moves, can create for himself and plays good defense” said Hildago. Green recently did damage at the Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic while helping his team make the 13U final four and making the All Tournament Team.

Green is grooving right now but Hildago does see area of improvement.”Right now we are working on Quade’s speed. I think if he gets quicker north to south he can reach his full potential. I believe the sky is the limit with his potential if he continues to work” he finished.

Basketball Spotlight will be watching Green and his Team Final teammates as they try to bring home the Grand Finale Championship in June. They are going to get off to a great to start.
