Basketball Spotlight Grand Finale 8th Grade Preview and Predictions

The 8th Grade Division of the Grand Finale final four is packed with the top talent from the region. Each team has shown they belong and will be ready to get it on. Here’s a breakdown and prediction on what’s going on Sunday. 

Basketball Spotlight Grand Finale 8th Grade Preview and Predictions

Team IZOD: 
The #1 seed the “Supreme Team” are the defending champions and favorite to win it all. Since the Atlantic City Showcase they have been 15U basketball so should be ready to tangle on their grade level. They still are loaded with stud guards Jahvon Quinerly, Luther Muhammad and Atiba Taylor. They also feature Louis King and top 5 player in America Nazi Reid. They are in position to finish off their Spotlight careers in great fashion.

Playaz Basketball Club: 
The Playaz will be looking to take the banner back to Paterson. They have a serious backcourt with Ja’Quaye James and Markquis Nowell. They also feature two of the top forwards in the land with Justin Winston and Armoni Sexton. Their run and gun style will be on full display Sunday.

New Heights: 
The AC Showcase champs enter the Grand Finale looking to keep their programs legacy going. Last season the NY’s 2017 bunch walked away with the banner and these guys also have a shot. High scoring guard Dallas Watson can catch fire at any time and l lead them to victory.

WE R 1: 
The Mid Atlantic Champions will make a statement by walking away with the banner. They have one of the hottest point guards in the region in Antwan Butler while also possess top forwards Chris Cropper and Jamal Whittlesey. It will truly be an interesting story if they walk out of TCA with the crown. 

It’s only right for the top two teams (Team IZOD and (Playaz) to meet in the finals. These two have been banging all year and all the games have been close. In this showdown I think it will come down to wire once again with the “Supreme Team” pulling it out. IZOD by 4.
