Basketball Spotlight Feature: New Jersey's Best Kept Secret

Khalief Crawford (Team IZOD)  

The Garden State has had their share of big time guards through the years. Some have gone on to college and even NBA fame. Now the Garden State has a diamond in the rough, his name is Khalief Crawford from Linden, NJ. Crawford is a point guard for Team IZOD and we believe has potential to be a special guard down the road. 

Crawford’s coach Luis Delgado also feels he has a serious guard in Khalief. “Khalief is very aggressive on offense and setting up teammates. He uses his dribble to get into the lane and he’s a good finisher. He’s one of a few players in his class that can create for himself” said Delgado. 

Crawford’s coach did praise his guard but also knows he needs to work on a few things to make his game complete. “He needs to work his jump shot and getting it off quicker. He’s a good on the ball defender but needs to concentrate playing good defense off the ball” he finished. 

Basketball Spotlight will get a firsthand look at the Garden State best kept secret at the Clash For The Cup.
