Basketball Spotlight Grand Finale 5th Grade Top Performers
Justice Williams Guard (Team Nation)- If first impressions are lasting then Williams gave me something to think about. The lead guard is as smooth as they come and plays with the confidence of a kid older in age. He sliced through the defense and made the correct pass or scored at will. The way be broke down defenders and had enough skill level to finish set him apart from other guards in this event. His game can translate for years to come. His play earned him an invite to the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp.
Zion Cruz Guard (Team Nation)- The big guard loves to flash his ball handling and can play either guard position. During the weekend it seemed unfair to see him pushing the rock in transition. The defense was too weak to stop him from getting to the cup or setting up teammates. Size matters with Cruz and we want to see that size in Maryland at the Future Phenom Camp.
Elizah Perkins Guard (Team Nation)- Team Nation caused many turnovers during the weekend and Perkins played a major role. The athletic guard played the passing lanes and plucked ball handlers. On the offensive end he ran alongside Williams while finishing off plays and making things happen with the rock in his hand.
John Camden Guard (Team Final)- In the semifinals Camden proved to be a double threat (inside/outside). He can score after penetrating or hit an outside shot. He plays with a lot of aggression and toughness when handling the pill. Sometimes he penetrates too deep and gets into trouble but he will learn how to pick is spots better as he matures.
David Cuttino Guard (WE R 1)- The Delaware squad had a tough day but Cuttino played to the final buzzer. He dribbled through the pressure defense and made some good passes. He’s still young so he couldn’t complete some of his plays but when his body matures he should be a fine guard. Keep an eye on this kid.
