Basketball Spotlight MDC 6th Grade Top Performers

Mikeal Jones (Team Nelson)

The 6th Grade Division gave us some exciting moments all the way to the end. Here’s a breakdown of the top performers of the MDC. 

MDC 6th Grade Top Performers 

Mikeal Jones Forward (Team Nelson)- Jones put together two big games which propelled Team Nelson to the Gold Ball. First against Rens in the semifinals he went straight to work. He tallied 25 points while finishing along the baseline and showing versatility and in the finals he capped his weekend off with a 20 point performance. During both games he was a monster on the boards and on defense. He’s definitely a candidate for POY and we look forward to watching him at the Grand Finale.

Tay Allen Guard (6th Man Warriors)- OMG once again torched the competition while helping his troops reach the championship game. In the semifinals he connected on 15 points while eliminating ETU Select. 

Elijah Hicks Guard (6th Man Warriors)- Hicks also got involved for the Virginia team. He scored 14 points in their semifinal win and also played tough with Allen in their championship loss. 

Cole Anthony Guard (Rens)- Anthony had a terrific weekend while helping Rens reach the final four. His most impressive move is his mid-range pull up. He seems to have a polished the move and will shoot it at any time during the game. I also like his range from three point range and ability to make plays. 

Judah McIntrye Guard (Rens)- This kid seems to have eyes in the back of his head. His job is to break down the defense and find open teammates and he does a great job at it. He puts constant pressure on the defense when penetrating and has developed some scoring prowess. 

Tyler Brelsford Guard (ETU Select)- ETU had two starters absent so the point guard had to step up and carry more of the scoring load. He answered the bell helped his squad make the final four were the lost a buzzer beater to 6th Man Warriors. He finished with 14 points in the semis.

Tyrese Jenkins Forward (ETU Select)- The big forward also found his scoring groove and even showed improved range in his shot. He finished the semifinal game with 13 points and a host of rebounds.
