MJ Heat AAU Super Regional 11U Recap: CJ Hawks Soar To Title

CJ Hawks Takes Crown!

Stephen Lubischer scored 14 points and Bryan Antione added 13 markers as CJ Hawks defeated Between The Lines Elite 56-44 to win the MJ Heat AAU Super Regional 11U Championship. Jaylen Jackson and Rodney Sheridan scored 11 points for BTL in the loss.

Top Performers

Bryan Antione Forward (CJ Hawks)- Antione saved his best play for the 4th quarter. His team was down 7 points and Bryan proceeded to take over the game. The lanky forward stroked a couple of treys and also showed some mid range prowess. It was money time and he stepped up big for the champions.

Tahaj Parland Guard (CJ Hawks)- Parland handled BLT pressure defense with swift dribble drives and smart moves. He keeps the ball low and dazzled the crowd while shaking defenders.

Stephen Lubischer Guard (CJ Hawks)- Lubischer carried the load for the Hawks the first 3 quarters. He scored easily using the floater in the lane and charging the lane hard. Stephen was very fearless when attacking the basket.

MJ Wright Guard (CJ Hawks)- Wright played excellent defense especially in the 4th quarter. He was at the top of the press and collected several steals which helped them complete the comeback.

Jaylen Jackson Guard (BTL)- This kid has some special tools in his game. He plays the point guard spot but can also score the pill when his team need buckets. His handle allows him to get past defenders and create havoc. We will keep our eye on him.

Mike Anderson Forward (BTL)- Anderson was able to rebound the ball and push the rock. He has good size right now and uses it to the best of his ability. I didn’t see him shoot from the perimeter so I can’t gauge his jump shot.

Rodney Sheridan Guard (BTL)- I never seen a 11 year old shoot the rock with so much arc. A few of Sheridan shots almost hit the ceiling. When he nailed it the shots he looked very good.

Mike Lopez Forward (BTL)- Lopez was in charge of hitting the boards and scoring inside. He has a strong frame for his age and size. He made things tough for the CJ Hawks until they took over in the 4th quarter.
