Basketball Spotlight Fan Poll: Who Will Win AC Showcase 8th Grade Championship?

The AC Showcase has once again turned into the event of the year and Basketball Spotlight would like to fans to help us with a big question. The 8th Grade Division has the top teams in the country and we wanted you guys to predict the winner. Here are the Top 6 teams below and your chance to vote for the winner.

CP3 All Stars: The two-time AAU National Champs will be making their AC Showcase debut with a loaded roster. The Langley twins along with Mike Green controls the backcourt. While Wendell Moore arguably the top player in the shows his versatility. Newcomers Myles Pierre and Christopher Hinton might take this team to another level. They could be the overwhelming favorite.
Team RIO National: Rio enters AC Showcase wanting a shot at the champs. They have been steamrolling the competition all year and possess one of the best rosters in the country. Bryan Antoine, Scottie Lewis and Tariq Ingraham could be considered 8th Grade All Americans while Jalen Gaffney has emerged as one of the top guards in the region. When they are clicking they are virtually unbeatable.

DC Premier: Premier is another loaded bunch featuring the Mitchell twins (Makhi and Mahkel), along with scoring guard Marvin Price. If Christian Depollar shows up they have a great chance to run the table. Coach Perry is ready to show that his boys can not only compete but defeat the top teams in the country.
Team Takeover: Yes TTO finally made it to the Spotlight and picked the right time to do it. They are stacked with scoring guard Justin Moore, dazzling floor general Jonathan McGriff, reliable 7th Grader Terrence Williams and emerging big fella Hunter Dickinson. It will be very interesting to watch them tangle with the best. On Sunday they could be holding the banner.

Team Florida: Balsa Koprivca and Bryan Sanders make up one of the best tandems in America and they will be leading Team Florida into their Spotlight debut. The deck is stacked with the top teams in the country and can the boys from the Sunshine State get it done? We will see April 4th and 5th.
Team Ennis: The field wouldn’t be complete without the #1 Player in the Country. Yes Rowan Barrett will lace them up at the AC Showcase. The competition will be fierce but this talented southpaw has the ability to take the game over at any time. Can he put the Canadian squad on his back and take the title back across the northern border? 

This 8th Grade field is stacked and wide opened make sure you cast your vote in the top right hand corner.
