Tip Off Classic Top Performers 7th Grade Division (Part 2 Fresh Faces)
Brandon Slater Guard (Metro Sixers)- In one of the best offensive showings in the history of the Tip Off Classic, Slater lit up the books for 38 points in an overtime loss to CIA Bounce. Slater had all facets of his game going including his jumper (nailing five treys). He was definitely a bona fide scoring machine last Saturday.
Danilo Djuricic Forward (CIA Bounce)- Danilo’s long hair wasn’t the only thing that stood out as the lanky forward posted big numbers. His hefty 28 points was a huge reason they were able to escape the Metro Sixers in overtime. On defense his length helped alter or block several shots.
Ignas Brazdeikis Guard (CIA Bounce)- Brazdeikis has the green light on offense and used it against Metro Sixers. He had the ball falling on his way to 23 points and helping them get things done. He’s a kid you need to keep an eye out on.
Rob Miller Guard (Playaz)- Speaking of scoring this kid Miller also knows how to get the ball in the bucket. He has breakdown ability and uses great body control when finishing at the tin. This Playaz team is young but they can still shock some squads with Miller at the controls.
Myles Dread Forward (Metro Sixers)- The versatile wing player made good in his Spotlight debut. He was a tough matchup for the Mass Shooting Stars as he hurt them for a team high 19 points. He has been a dominant force of this age level the past few years.
Cameron Reddish Guard (Team Final)- Reddish made his Spotlight debut and showed some good flashes. He has a lot of wiggle while getting past defenders with ease. I like this kids upside and think this was a good snag for Team Final down the road.
Maurice Works Guard (DEMI)- Works put in that work while helping Team Demi go 2-1 over the weekend. The combo guard was like a bulldog when attacking the glass. His relentless style put tremendous pressure on the defense. His best game was a 23 point performance against CIA Bounce (Red).
Shandon Brown Guard (DEMI)- Works backcourt mate and cousin, Brown also got involved in the action while defeating CIA Bounce (Red). He finished with 16 points while knocking down a pair of three pointers.
