Word On The Street: Can Team Scan Handle The Heat?

A lot of things are going on around the AAU world right now. So we decided to hit a couple of our sources and bring you another “Word On The Street”. Remember most of this information is from reliable sources including those directly involved.

Team Rebels Breakup?
After a disappointing performance at the Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic Team Rebels 13U and 14U squads decided to leave the program. Sources close to the situation have both teams being entertained by Team ZOD and East Coast Elite. We will keep you updated on this situation. Well I guess this puts an end to the Team Final/Team Rebel rivalry. I’m going to miss it.

Team IZOD Expanding?
After bringing in a top 12U squad it seems Team IZOD’s next piece will be a new 14U Team. Word has Team Rebels being their first target while also adding some other pieces including power guard Jamir Harris. Team Rebels coming over would also booster their 13U squad. A backcourt with Nate Pierre Louis and Trevon Duval would be a joy to watch.

Can Team Scan Really Be Like The 1972 Dolphins?
No team on the 14U level in Basketball Spotlight history has ever gone undefeated through our circuit. This Scan team might be different because of their experience and guard play. They are accustomed to winning and seem to respond to every challenge. Teams will be chasing TS heavy and we will see if they can handle the heat.
