In The Spotlight: Tyus Battle (NJ Road Runners)

Name: Tyus Battle 

AAU Team: NJ Road Runners 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2016 

Analysis: We haven’t seen "Kid Mamba" since he moved to the high school circuit so we checked him out Saturday morning. The 6’5 guard has moved over to the point guard spot and looked comfortable running the show on the 16U level. He seems eager to dish the rock to teammates even with some flair. I also was impressed on how he crashed the boards and finished inside against high school level comp. His play guided the Roadrunners to the championship game. If he continues to progress this way in his new spot the Class of 2016 could be in for a rude awakening.
