Basketball Spotlight MDC 8th Grade Top Performers Part 3

Kareem "That Dude" May

The Basketball Spotlight MDC 8th Grade Division brought in some of the best talent in the region. Here’s our final look at the top performers in this division. 

Basketball Spotlight MDC 8th Grade Top Performers Part 3 

Kareem May Guard (Brooklyn Rens)- In their quarterfinal loss to Team Final May showed why he was one of the best point guards in the country. He need only dribble through traps while attacking the rim he also finished the contest with 28 points. The kid has the natural instinct that you can’t teach. His court vision and ball handling will translate great to the next level.

Will Amica Guard (Gym Ratz)- The crafty guard was able to do his thing this past weekend. He showed up big in their pool play battle versus NJ Shore Shots by getting in the lane, pushing the rock in transition and knocking down the trey ball. He had a team high 20 points in the contest including two treys in the victory.
Charlie Gordiner Forward (NJ Shore Shots)- His team didn’t fare well over the weekend but Gordiner’s stock continues to rise. The forward once again showed he could score from all three levels and was a tough matchup for anyone that tried to guard him. The pure shooter heated up from the perimeter against the NJ Soldiers by nailing 3 treys while tallying 20 points in the victory.
RJ Weiss Guard (NJ Shore Shots)- Weiss also had a good weekend in his home gym. He was accurate from 3 point land and also showed he could make plays within the offense. He is a true veteran of the Spotlight circuit and will enter the high school level with tons of experience. 

Zack Brown Forward (Gym Ratz)- The combo forward is making the transition to the wing and he showed this ability at the MDC. He scored in the lane and also ventured out past the 3 point line. If Brown keeps working he could turn into a legit three man very soon. 

Kam Jones Guard (Gym Ratz)- Jones was the third player that stepped up in the absence of Travis Gray (ankle injury). The super athletic guard excels in the open floor and finishes with the best of them. He has a scoring mentality and showed it by tallying 16 markers in the win.
