Clash For The Cup 6th Grade Orange Division Preview: Can Anyone Slow Down The IZOD Express?

Team IZOD Looking To Collect Another Trophy  

The 6th Grade Division of the Clash For The Cup has never been this loaded. There’s nowhere to hide as these squads are set to collide. 

Clash For The Cup 6th Grade Preview (Orange Bracket) 

Team IZOD: This squad was built for success and thus far it has paid dividends. They won every tournament they have been placed in including the Tip Off Classic. This weekend will be their biggest test of the season. 

Metro Flyers: MF has finished second in just about every tournament and has yet to conquer the mighty Team IZOD. Could they have another shot this weekend? We shall see! 

Team Nelson: After an upset loss at the MLK Classic, TN will be heading into the trenches. They have a stacked pool with the likes of CIA Bounce and New Heights. If should be fireworks from the outset. 

ETU Select: The Potomac Valley crew will be chasing their first banner this weekend. They came into the season with heavy expectations and now it’s time to deliver. 

Team Takeover: TT is back and they are ready to some Spotlight work. This will be their first dive into the deep waters this season. Hopefully they can swim with the sharks. 

New Heights: NH has been hovering around the middle of the pack and now is ready to race to the top. They will need to knock off a few good teams in their quest for a crown. 

CIA Bounce: The boys from the north will like to rebound from a quarterfinal exit at the Tip Off Classic. They have a few good players they should help them bounce back. 

6th Man Warriors: 6th Man made it to the championship of the Blue Division at the Tip Off Classic. Now they are playing with the big boys. Hopefully they are ready to rumble. 

MJ Mavericks: The Mavs showed great heart and had an excellent showing at the MLK Classic. I enjoy watching them compete and look forward to seeing them this weekend. 

Gauchos: The Choz are hungry for some Spotlight love and they are willing to earn it. They have some fire in the pool with Metro Flyers and Team Takeover. But hey that’s why you enter the Spotlight. 

WPC Elite: This squad from the Baltimore area claims to be one of the best. Well the stage is set for them to bang out and everyone will be watching.
