Mike Speights (Bump and Run)

The 12U Division had some remarkable play and produced a new champion. Here’s Part 2 of our report of the top performers from this event.

AC Showcase 12U Top Performers Part 2

Mike Speights Forward (Bump and Run)- Speights was definitely the best scorer in this event. He popped KSK for 37 points and hit up NWK for 36 markers. His team didn’t fare well in their debut but he left his mark in America’s Playground. This kid scores the rock like we breathe.

Fatayn Wesley Guard (RIP City)- Wesley had his outside stroke going this weekend. He drained 4 treys against Team IZOD and knocked down 3 more against Team Melo. The stage was bright in Atlantic City and Wesley stepped up and showed his skills. He made the defense pay each time out.

Huran Ransom Forward (NWK)- Ransom bullied his way to a good showing this weekend. He dominated along the baseline and when charging the basket. He averaged 14 points over the weekend as NWK gave their usual great effort.

Rob Higgins Guard (Playtime)- Higgins showed his hot rod style in their close loss to Riverside. He found his range by nailing 2 treys on his way to 20 points. He has a lot of flash in his game but also loads of substance.

Al-Quan Dwight Guard (NWK)- Dwight didn’t back down against the national comp. He’s one of the smoothest guards in the region and tough as nails. He had 16 points in their pool play loss to KSK. He’s one we will definitely keep an eye on.

Luther Muhammad Guard (KSK)- Muhammad continued his dominant season from a scoring standpoint. His physical style of play allows him to be one of the best finishers in the region. He’s always in attack when he has the rock.

Emil Moody Forward (RIP City)- Moody provided the inside presence for RIP City. He scored some decent numbers and spent a lot of time at the charity stripe. He has the size to be a force on this level for years to come.
