Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Best Of The Best And Top 10 Player Performance Rankings

The 6th Grade Division of the Tip Off Classic featured the Top 3 players in America and they all lived up to the hype. Here’s a look at 6th Grade Best Of The Best and Player Performance Rankings. 

Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Best Of The Best 

Best Performer: Zion Harmon (Unlimited Glory) 
The legend continues as Harmon led his squad to another crown in spectacular fashion. “The Lion” is determined to win and he seems to always find a way to get it done. When it’s all said and done he has a chance to be one of the best guards to come through Basketball Spotlight. 

Best Prospect: Trey Patterson (Team IZOD) 
Patterson was always looked at as a good prospect down the road but really took a bigger step in that direction when he displayed his guard skills during the Tip Off Classic. It’s kind of scary how good he could be if he keeps working harder. 

Best Inside Presence: Donnell Harris (Team IZOD) 
Harris made his Spotlight debut and was impressive. He dominated the paint on both ends of the floor. I think we will be seeing a lot of him soon as he will be joining TI on a full time basis. 

Best Floor General: Jayden Pierre (Hilltoppers Heat) 
Pierre is one of the toughest and most focused floor generals around. He’s definitely a player that leaves it all on the floor each time he takes the court. I have no doubt he will be successful in this game of basketball. 

Best Shooter: Joshua Bascoe (S Elite) 
Bascoe can let it go from the cheap seats. If you leave him open and let him set his feet it’s usually money in the bank. 

Best Fresh Face: Zaakir Williamson (Philly Triple Threat) 
Williamson made a name for himself at the Tip Off Classic. Shaq proved when in the right position he can score buckets in a hurry. 

Best Scorer: Caleb Houston (S Elite) 
Harmon actually scored the most points in the event but in terms of spreading the love we decided to focus on Houston’s output. The good looking prospect from the North led his team in scoring and helped them reach the final four. 

Best Playmaker: Justice Williams (Team IZOD) 
Williams showed the ability to score and create his teammates. On this squad he will have the chance to show more of the point guard side of his game. 

Best Defender: Afamdi Achufusi (Havoc City) 
His versatility allows him to guard different positions on the floor. He’s capable of defending a perimeter player and also getting down and dirty on the post.
