AC Showcase 7th Grade Top Performers Part 3

Devandre Edmonds (Mass Shooting Stars)

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 final look at the top performers from this age group. 

AC Showcase 7th Grade Top Performers Part 3 

Devandre Edmonds Forward (Mass Shooting Stars)- Though his team took a tough loss Edmonds posted his best numbers during a 30 point outing against NWK. The forward seemed to have everything clicking the entire weekend. When he has his confidence going he is very difficult to contain. 

Paul Durkee Forward (Mass Shooting Stars)- Usually Durkee helps Edmonds out with the scoring and this weekend was no exception. He averaged double digits and also had a good game against NWK with 19 markers. They make up a good 1-2 punch. 

Harran Ranson Guard (NWK)- Ranson carried NWK to a #1 seed after pool play. The tough combo guard has a mean pull up jumper and cradles the rock well when charging the lane. He also made things rough for IZOD before his team lost in the quarterfinals. 

Shackquille Dezonie Forward (Wall 2 Wall)- Shack faced some serious competition in the post this weekend and didn’t back down. He has shown some quickness and decent touch while scoring. He also has long arms that help him avoid shot blockers and rebound. Definitely plays bigger than his size. 

Shandon Brown Guard (Team DEMI)- Brown represented well in his first game against New Heights. He connected on four treys on his way to 22 points. He’s probably the top scoring guard in this class from the New England area. 

Fontaine Wesley Guard (Philly Pride)- The Pride took home the Blue Division crown and Wesley went berserk in the finals. The high scoring guard led all scorers with 21 points against a stingy Delaware Finest defense. He shined in the Spotlight a few years ago and it was good to see him back. 

Deonte Hill Guard (6th Man Warriors)- Hill was at it again in terms of posting numbers. He had a huge game against Team Demi while recording 27 points. He has no problem putting the ball in the basket. The kid can flat out score. 

Jaquan Hooks Guard (Del Finest Stars)- Hooks suited up with hi regular squad for this one and took them to the Blue Division finals. He has proven the last few years to be one of the toughest guards in this class.
