The Atlantic City Showcase will truly bring together the top teams in the country. It also will give us a chance to answer serious questions about the AAU season. Here are a few questions that should get answered at the AC Showcase.
Five Questions To Be Answered At The AC Showcase
Yes since the AAU rule change and emergence of new leagues this will be the first time they true top teams in the country will be competing in the same event. You have CP3 All Stars the back to back national champions and Team RIO National which is the most dominant force on the east coast and have the ability to blow any team out. This should be a true heavy weight battle with the winner staking claim as the best squad in the land. Last year it was Supreme Team vs. WACG which turned out to be a classic. Can this battle live up to the hype? We will see Saturday at Atlantic City High School.
Right now Rowan Barrett has the nod with most scouting services but he will be laying it on the line at the Showcase as Wendell Moore, Scottie Lewis, Bryan Antoine and Balsa Kopriva all will making their claim for the #1 spot. There’s a great chance one of these players could separate themselves from the pack or someone new could emerge. This is Atlantic City where something always seems to happen.
After storming through the first two Spotlight events, the Terror Squad caught their first loss in Winter Warz. After the loss rumors spread about players leaving and playing with other squads in different events. Now with the AC Showcase this weekend, will they regain form and dominate the competition or has the pack caught up to them.
Team Glory won Tip Off Classic, New World Unlimited Took home the Clash For The Cup and Philly Triple Threat was too much at Winter Warz. Now at the AC Showcase will we have a repeat champion or will someone else step up. Team IZOD is looking tough with the return of Trey Patterson and some other added pieces. I also think Team Takeover is capable of snatching their first crown.
The 5th Grade Division also might tell us who the best team in the country is as we have the reigning National Champions in Maryland Finest, #4 George Hill Rising Stars, and #6 Gauchos of New York. Standing in their way will be the NY Rens who just won Winter Warz and Riverside who is very hungry for a championship.
