AC Showcase 11U Preview: Can Anyone Contain ABC?

ECE-NJABC Will Be Chasing It's 3rd Banner!

The 11U Division of the AC Showcase features some of the top teams in the country. There will be a lot of bragging rights at stake but only one team will leave with the prize from America’s Playground.

AC Showcase 11U Preview

ECE-NJABC: A little name change didn’t affect this group on the floor. They enter this event with the most Spotlight banners and #1 in our poll. Something must give as they will face Team Takeover and possibly DC Assault. But they might have the best backcourt in America so they are not worried.

Team Takeover: Speaking of TT they have won several tournaments but this will be their Spotlight debut if the season. Can they handle the hostile environment of AC combined with the treacherous competition? We will definitely see this weekend.

Team Nelson: TN seems to have NJABC’s number in head to heads battles. Now the Mid Atlantic squad needs to find a way to make it deeper in the tournament to really cause some havoc. There’s nowhere to hide!

Gauchos: I haven’t seen this group but their program reputation has tossed them into the fire. I hope they can handle the pressure or they will be in for a long weekend. Your guard play must be equipped for this type of event.

DC Assault: This DCA group has been absent from the Spotlight scene for a while and we are anxious to see them in battle. They have one of the top point guards in the country and will need him to have a huge weekend.

New Heights: NH has been right there and now it’s time for them to cross the threshold. They have some tough guards and capable scorers. Now they must figure a way to fight their way out of this vigorous pool.

CBC: This squad made a lot of noise at 10U last season but a few personnel changes has given them a different look. Hopefully they bring that toughness that Hartford, CT is known for.

Other Teams To Watch For: KSK, NWK, 6th Man Warriors, Mid Jersey Mavericks
