Basketball Spotlight MDC Top Performers Part 2
Charles Pride Guard (Gym Rats)-The defense knows the Pride is wired to score but they still can’t slow him down. The two-guard started the weekend off by blistering Mass Shooting Stars for 25 points, 28 markers against Jersey Shore Warriors and 20 points in their Sunday showdown with New Heights. He used this season to show that he could get it done whenever he steps on the floor. Simply put he gets buckets.
Dallas Watson Guard (New Heights)- The Milbank and New Heights merger also brought over Watson and he was a great pickup. The scoring guard has a lot of bop in his game and torched opponents at the MDC. He tallied 16 points against both Mass Shooting Stars
Daquan Campbell Forward (New Heights)- Campbell is a monster on the glass and has enough touch to get things done in the paint. He doesn’t mind grinding to get the job done. He hit up Mass Shooting Stars for 22 points in his teams win.
Marcus Littles Forward (Team Final)- The more I see Marcus, the more I know the opposing teams will have their hands full with this kid. He continues to get better and even shows a motor which rare for a kid that combines this size with such a young age. I loved his willingness to rebound and be involved in plays. Attention Team Final, build a wall around this kid because he’s a commodity.
