Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Preview: New Faces In New Places

The 6th Grade division at the Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic is loaded with teams and talent. Here’s a preview of the teams that will be making the march for the crown. 

Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Preview 

ETU Select: These boys supposed to be the best the Potomac Valley has to offer. Tyler Brelsford and Jahmir Young control the backcourts while Terrence “Big Smoove” Williams and Tyrese Jenkins will clog up the paint. Teams will be gunning to take them out. 

Team IZOD: This squad has brought together some of the top players in the region. Reigning POY Jalen Gaffney and AJ Hoggard have been joined in the backcourt by Jordan “The Real” McKoy. That might be enough fire power to run the table in anyone’s tournament. 

CJ Hawks: Guards Alex Klatsky and Brian Antione have received some scoring help from combo guard Khalif Battle. This tournament will be an interesting test for the Hawks. But they should be okay they been in the fire before. 

Team First: Another first year program from the Big Apple has a dynamic backcourt of John Wilson and Josh Pierre Louis. They should bring a lot of excitement and quickness to Lakewood, NJ. 

Mid Jersey Mavericks: MJM won a Blue Division crown now they have to bang with the big boys. We will get a firsthand look on how much heat they can handle. 

Diamond In A Rough: This squad is supposed to be the team to beat from the New England area now they will make their Spotlight debut. I hope they are ready for the real fire because here it comes. 

New Heights: This veteran squad seems to always stick around to at least the semifinals. Let’s see if they can continue this magic in Lakewood. 

Team Melo: The B’More boys are ready to make some noise and they have a tough pool to tangle in. Hopefully they have can survive in the trenches. 

CIA Bounce: The Canadian Boys come in highly touted so now it’s time to show and prove on the stage. Lights, camera, action it’s on.
