The 7th Grade Division of the Basketball Spotlight Winter Warz had some serious talent. Here’s Part 1 of our top performers.
Basketball Spotlight Winter Warz 7th Grade Top Performers Part 2
Jordan Toles Guard (Terror Squad)- Toles explosive play was on full display. His signature move was catching the rock on the baseline and attacking the rim. He did a good job of using the rim at a protector against the shot blockers while finishing with the reverse layups. I also saw him display more confidence with his outside shot which is important to his development. He tallied 15 points versus Milbank and another 15 markers in their loss to KSK.
AJ Hoggard Guard (Terror Squad)- During this event Hoggard looked to score the rock a little more than usual. In their game against Seed USA Hoggard came down and banged home three straight treys. His jump shot looked effective but as he gets older he will have to get a higher release.
Shane Dezonie Guard (Team IZOD)- Dezonie caught fire against the Rens in the quarterfinals. He got out in transition and scored while also getting it done in the half court set. When his outside shot is falling he’s a dangerous player. He finished with 22 points in the victory.
Richie Greaves Guard (Team IZOD)- Greaves did a good job running the show for IZOD. He runs the detail offense very efficiently and took good care of the rock. He didn’t have a great shooting weekend from the perimeter but I think he will get better in that aspect.
Kareem May Guard (Brooklyn Rens)- May is a straight scoring machine. He caught fire against KSK when he nailed 6 treys and finished the game with 25 points. The smooth guard can also lend his hand playing the point for this squad but scores so easy.
