The 6th Grade Division of the Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic was deep with talent. Here’s Part 2 of the top performers from the weekend in Neptune. 

Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Top Performers Part 2 

Caleb Houston Guard (S Elite)- Houston led the team in scoring over the weekend. He’s a long athletic guard that can hit the outside shot or finish in traffic with a floater. He’s also willing to stick his head inside for rebounds and show versatility on the defensive end. His best game was a 17 point outing against NY Panthers.

Joshua Bascoe Guard (S Elite)- Bascoe is the coach’s son so it’s easy to see why he knows how to run a team. He’s very crafty with the rock and enjoys getting his teammates involved. Bascoe also packs a serious cannon as he will drain treys from anywhere in the gym. He had three treys in their semi-final loss Unlimited Glory.

Xavier Fearon Guard (S Elite)- Next up in the scoring column was Fearon. The lefty averaged close to 11 points a game. He finishes off plays well in the lane while also hitting the jumper consistently and passing the rock well. This is a terrific trio.
Jayden Pierre Guard (Hilltoppers Heat)- Pierre once again put in some serious work over the weekend. This pure gym rat has shown and proved throughout this short season. He’s the opposing guard that many opponents hate to see in front of them. Because he’s coming hard and will make you step your game up.
Afamdi Achufusi Guard (Havoc City)- Afamdi Achufusi had another solid weekend at the Spotlight. He averaged about 12 points per game along with double figures in rebounds. His versatility keeps Havoc City alive in most games they play. 

Mike Myre Guard (Havoc City)- Mike got into the action for Havoc City with a well-rounded floor game. He averaged 10 points as well as several rebounds and assist. He will need to keep up this production for HC to stay on pace as one of the top teams in the region. 

Malcolm Fork Guard (Philly Triple Threat)- Fork just joined PTT this year and gave them a taste of what he could do the first game. The swing guard that’s known for playing hard dropped in 15 points in their first game victory over NY Panthers. 

Zaakir Williamson Forward (Philly Triple Threat)- Nicknamed Shaq for his bubbling personality, Williamson feasted inside like the future Hall Of Famer. He went berserk against NY Panthers going 20 markers with 18 of them coming in the first half. He’s one we will keep our eye on. 

Michael Jackson Guard (Hilltoppers Heat)- No not the singer but Jackson can make the net sing from deep. He’s a 3 point specialist that found his groove. He was able to drain enough triples to help Hilltoppers Heat make a deep run at the Tip Off Classic.
