Basketball Spotlight Preseason 8th Grade Top 10

The Basketball Spotlight circuit is set to begin once again and we are excited. We would like to start off with our preseason Top 10 for each grade level. We definitely understand that it is still early so some player movement can change things a little. 

Basketball Spotlight Preseason 8th Grade Top 10 

1. Team Scan: Scan checks in at the #1 spot. They currently have the best point guard in the land, top prospect and perhaps the top scorer in the region. Teams will be on their heels trying to take over the top spot. They are one of the current favorites to win the Grand Finale title. 

2. Playaz Basketball Club: The Playaz will have a lot to say about who wins the Grand Finale crown. They are very explosive on offense and love to press. They will be ready to tangle at the Tip Off Classic. 

3. Team Takeover: Team Takeover has brought in some of the top players from Metro Sixers which should make them a super solid team. If they get everything together they have a chance of taking home banner. 

4. NC Runnin Rebels: The Rebels bring National final four experience into the mix. They will be looking to capture their first Spotlight banner. I will see if they’re up to the task at Tip Off Classic.  
5. New Rens: The Rens round out our Top 5. I think we will see Coach Council return to his style of two years ago, when he used more of a team concept. I expect them to be in the thick of things when it all matters. 

6. Team IZOD: They are no longer the Supreme Team but I believe this group is not to be slept on. They have a solid core and will be coached by one of the best. 

7. We R 1: The Mid Atlantic Champs return for their last hurrah at the Spotlight. It would be a great story if they could end their Spotlight careers with the Grand Finale banner. 

8. Team Final: TF has added some new pieces that have familiar names. Hopefully they will have the toughness to return to the Grand Finale Final Four. 

9. Wall 2 Wall: I want to see how they look during the Tip Off Classic. I’m hearing about some player movement but I will see first-hand in December. I’ve heard those rumors before. 

10. Mass Shooting Stars: MSS brings up the rear and we are anxious to see how they will look at the Tip Off Classic.
