AC Showcase 6th Grade Top Performers Part 2
Ishmael Leggett Guard (Team Takeover)- I pray for defenders that are responsible of slowing Leggett down because it’s a tough job. This kid is a tremendous scorer and player maker at the guard position. He flourishes in transition when back pedaling guards are trying to slow him down. I love his body control when scoring over shot blockers and his ability to score from all three levels. He pumped in a game high 20 points in their overtime thriller against GH Rising Stars.
Zion Harmon Guard (Team Glory)- Arguably the top 5th Grader in the country continues to dominate on the 6th grade level. He’s shown the ability the score whenever he wants but against Rip City he scored 18 of his 26 points from the charity stripe. This means they had no answer for his dribble penetration. He also finished with 20 markers against a tough GH Rising Stars crew.
Nashaun Holmes Guard (Team Nation)- Holmes showed off his mid-range pull up game at the AC Showcase. He’s tough to guard because he charges the defender and once the back pedal he will pull up on the dime. When he has that dropping he has takeover the game potential.
Trey Patterson Guard (Team Nation)- Patterson started the tournament with a spark as he blistered the Hilltoppers Heat with 20 points including two bombs from behind the arc. The smoothness of his game and poise on the floor makes me believe this kid will be one of the hottest names in years to come.
