The 13U Division ad some of the usual suspects putting in work at the Spotlight. Here’s Part 1 of our report of the top performers from Atlantic City.

AC Showcase 13U Top Performers Part 1

Jaecee Martin Guard (CBC)- “Mayweather” shined bright in Atlantic City. During the finals with the game tied in the closing moments Martin went on a personal 7-0 run to close the deal. He switched gears on Milbank and took his game to yet another level. This is the “Money Team” second banner and Mayweather has distant himself from any other POY candidates. Right now it’s his trophy to lose.

Shyheim Hicks Guard (CBC)- When Hicks first arrived at the “Money Team” he appeared to be a little uncomfortable about his role. But during this event he played with that fire and determination that had us raving about him during his CT Elite days. He stretched put for easy buckets in traffic and put up decent numbers. He must continue of this level for CBC to chase the national crown.

Azur Swain Guard (CBC)- The title game was a heavy weight bout and Swain stood right in there and battled. He’s one of the most confidence shooters in the region and will pull the trigger from anywhere in the gym. He knocked down 2 treys in their win over Milbank.

Chaylyn Martin Guard (CBC)- Martin’s job is to shut down the leading scorer of the opposing squad and he relishes in it. He’s a ball hawker that also plays the passing lanes. On offense he fits in well running the lanes and finishing off plays.

Tyrese Whitaker Guard (Milbank)- This crafty guard helps direct traffic and can score using a floater. He uses his witty ways to fend off bigger and stronger defenders. He has adapted well to this level of basketball and knows how to win.

Paul Person Guard (Milbank)- P-Double game stood out in AC. The few inches he added to his frame allow him to absorb contact when finishing. His breakdown ability off the dribble is very apparent while he attacks at will. Right now he’s in the driver’s seat as the best lead guard in Big Apple’s Class of 2017.

Keshaun Ellis Guard (Milbank)- Ellis is built to score the pill and does it well. He finds gaps in the defense and attacks the hole like the late Walter Payton. Once he’s moving forward it’s very difficult for any defenders to slow him down. He’s the 3rd guard in “The Bank” trio of madness.
