Basketball Spotlight 8th Grade 3rd Quarter Report


Now that the AC Showcase is in the books. We have prepared our 3rd Quarter Report. The next stop on the Road to the Grand Finale is the MDC. 

Basketball Spotlight 8th Grade 3rd Quarter Report 

Team To Beat: Playaz 
They were idle during the AC Showcase but they still seem like the favorite to take home the title at Trenton Catholic on June 16th. They will use the MDC has a tune up. 

Surprise Team: Team IZOD 
IZOD got things together right in time to make a run for the Grand Finale crown. They have a few players with final four experiences from last season so that could be a huge advantage. 

Darkhorse: CBC 
Player defections have this team a little undermanned but they are hungry. Don’t be surprised if they come out swinging once they reach the final four. They could have a Spotlight story to tell if they win it all. Don’t count them out! 

Player Of The Year Leading Candidate: Jamir Harris (Playaz) 
The “Terminator” still has the edge for POY. No one else has shown to be that dominate while also leading their team to victories. Heading into the MDC it’s his trophy to lose. Coach Of The Year Leading Candidate: 

Luis Delgado (Team IZOD) 
Delgado had a chance of winning the award last year but it slipped through his fingers. A serious run at the MDC and a Grand Finale showing might get him over the top this year.
