Basketball Spotlight 8th Grade Top 10 Presented By AGame Team Apparel 

1. CBC: While others talked the “Money Team” came to the Tip Off and took home the title. They survived a hard fought championship game versus Team Takeover. We will probably see them again at the AC Showcase. 

2. Team Takeover: TT did damage during the Tip Off Classic before eventually losing in the finals to CBC. They came to play and knocked off some impressive teams in route to their championship loss. 

3. Playaz: PBC moves up after making a final four trip during the Tip Off Classic. They have one of the best scoring guards in the region and he gives them a chance to win any game. 

4. New Heights: NH made a big jump after making it to the final four of a Tip Off Classic. They have star studded roster but work very well together. 

5. DC Assault: DCA got tripped up in pool play by New Heights but we feel they will be looking to make a push at the Clash. They got some great pieces so they will be big return in Feb. 

6. Team Final: TF had a less than expected weekend. They took pool play losses to PYO and Playaz moved them down a few spaces. 

7. St. Michaels: SM aka Team IZOD showed some good signs at the Tip Off Classic. I think they will make a strong run during the Clash. 

8. CIA Bounce: The Bounce took a tough loss to Team Takeover. So they have said they will not leave the Clash without the Cup. 

9. Expressions: The X went 1-2 but they did have a tough pool. We expect them to have a better showing at the Clash. 

10. Jersey City Boys Club: JCBC has the hunger to make some noise. They are in the Top 10 but can they stay there?
