Clash For The Cup 8th Grade Top Performers: Part 3

Anthony McNish (CIA Bounce)  

Here’s our final look at the Top Performers from the 8th Grade Division of the Clash For The Cup. 

Clash For The Cup Top Performers Part 3 

Anthony McNish Forward (CIA Bounce)- McNish returned determined to help his squad advance to the playoffs and he delivered a final four appearance. The athletic forward showed dominate traits especially with his 30 point performance versus New Heights in the quarterfinals. This kid plays like a beast at times. 
Quade Green Guard (Team Final)- His team didn’t have a good showing but Green put in some work versus MiIbank. The combo guard finished with 21 point and showed an improved outside shot by drain three treys. 

Shae Linton Guard (CIA Bounce)- Linton proved to be an outside marksman for the Canada squad. He hit several treys during the tournament including four during their semifinal loss to the Playaz.
Paul Person Guard (Milbank)- Person was back with “The Bank” and had some good moments. He had a good game in their win against Team Final but really brought his game in their quarterfinal loss to Team IZOD. The feisty guard finished with 23 points. 

Keith Williams Guard (New Heights)- Williams had a solid weekend for New Heights against the heavy competition. He averaged double figures and helped them advance to the quarterfinals. 
Evan Logino Forward (Team Final)- Logino brought his lunch pail to work once again. He banged against some of the best interior players in the region and was able to do more than hold his own. His best game was a 20 point performance against CIA Bounce. 

Deon Savage Jr. Forward (6th Man Warriors)- Savage has one of the best upsides of anyone in this event. The lanky southpaw uses his turn around floater to score inside and establishes position despite being very slender. Down the road he will be a name to know. 

Kieron Williams Guard (6th Man Warriors)- Williams was another bright spot for 6th Man. He pushes the rock like a blur. He has point guard size but a scorer’s mentality. I like the energy he brought Sunday even though it was a consolation game.
