AC Showcase 7th Grade Top Performers Part 2

Luther Muhammad (Team IZOD)

The 7th Grade Division was our best ever and featured our first Super Pool. Each game in the Super Pool was a joy to watch and came down to the wire. Here’s our second look at the top performers from this age group. 

AC Showcase 7th Grade Top Performers Part 2 

Luther Muhammad Guard (Team IZOD)- The defensive specialist picked up his offense in the second half and overtime against New Rens. His team was trailing late and Muhammad put the squad on his back and carried them to victory in the extra period. The reigning POY came through in the clutch. 

Jalen Brooks Guard (Team IZOD)- Brooks logged serious minutes with the injury to Atiba Taylor and he took advantage. In their last pool game against New Rens the southpaw connected on four treys in route to 15 points. His number got called in that game and he delivered. 

Tyrek Chambers Guard (Team IZOD)- Chambers found his scoring groove against Metro Sixers during the Super Pool game. He drained 4 three-pointers while leading the team in scoring with 18 markers in the loss. 

Markquis Nowell Guard (New Rens)- The stage was packed and Nowell went to work against his former team (Team IZOD). During one stretch in the second half he scored 15 points in a row. His fell in overtime but he did give us a show to watch. 

Walter Tally Forward (New Rens)- Tally can be dominate at times but I don’t think the guards work hard enough to get him the rock. Walter did try to get the rock himself by banging the boards and being a beast on defense. 

Donovan Toatley Guard (Team Takeover)- Toatley is known as a showman and he didn’t disappoint. He hit some long treys and gave the crowd a treat with his slick ball handling. He had a couple of defenders shaking in their boots.
