Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Top Performers Part 1

Dwayne Pierce

The Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Division gave us a look into the future. Here’s our first look at the top performers. 

Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Top Performers Part 1 

Dwayne Pierce Guard (NY Gauchos) – Pierce is a big athletic guard that is hard to contain because he is always in attack mode going downhill. He rebounds very well which allows him to start the break where he makes very good decisions. In the half court when he gets the ball he understands how to get in the paint and break down the defense either scoring or driving and kicking to an open teammate. Dwayne is a matchup nightmare at the 6th grade level. He had 10 points in the championship win and 18 points in a previous game we watched including two 3 pointers.

Team Thrill Wins AGame Super Shootout!

Team Thrill Victorious

Coach Donnell “Mookie” Dobbins and his Team Thrill bunch have won their first Championship of the season. (The AGame Super Shootout). Dobbin’s roster includes some familiar names and some not so familiar ones. Jarace Walker may be the most recognized name on the roster. At 6’5 this wing was really impressive. Walker protected the rim as if he was 6’9, blocking anything that came his way. He hovered around the perimeter taking advantage of driving lanes while also connecting on three point attempts as if he was playing the guard position. Versatility is what this kid brings. 

Carlos Alexander the lefty point guard displays his intensity whenever Thrill makes a stop on defense or converts on offensive. Alexander is a tough defender with illusive penetration that blows by defender. His flashy style makes this team exciting to watch. Another impressive piece was Antonio Hamlin. Hamlin was pretty much unstoppable getting to the rim, he simply just elevated over the competition while connecting on layups and floaters, all the while finding open teammates for easy lay-ups. 

Kia Brooks was a steady shooter from the arc. Each time a team would make a run, he would stop that run with a three. There were three to four possessions where Brooks connected on a three to keep teams from getting any closer. Christian Winborne is another sniper for this talented group. This kid can really mix it up. He keeps teams off balance by getting to the rim, while also being able to knock down shoots from the perimeter. He is also a pretty good defender. Samuel Scott may be small in stature, but this kid fears no one. Scott consistently attacks the basket and finishes over taller defenders while causing havoc on opposing guards. Scott can push any guard off their path, which normally results in a turnover and lay-up on the other end. Scott is tough on either end of the floor. 

Andrew Rhuebottom’s physical nature allows him to rebound against taller players on route to layups or three point plays. With a guard skill set, Rhuebottom rebounds as a big and pushes the break like a guard either making the extra pass or laying it up himself. Rhuebottom is hard to contain when he gets going. John Thomas provides a lift when the teams seem to get stuck in neutral. His mid-range game is quite impressive for his age. While on the floor, Thomas becomes another scoring option and defender on the perimeter or low block. Derrick Moore is a 6’5, 250lb forward that just started playing basketball regularly and is quickly catching up to speed. By this spring we expect Moore to be a force down low. 

Best of luck to Thrill as they compete this AAU season.

Super Skillcase Profile: Four Petrie (Carlisle, PA)

Name: Four Petrie 

Hometown: Carlisle, PA 

Position: Shooting Guard 

Class: 2024 

Breakdown: Petrie is a polished wing guard that has good handle and the shot to match. I like his strong frame and ability to score on this level. He should blossom into a 20 point scorer once he reaches the high school level. Pennsylvania keep a look out for this kid. 

Super Skillcase Profile: Noah Roberts (Maplewood, NJ)

Name: Noah Roberts 

Hometown: Maplewood, NJ Noah 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2024 

Breakdown: Roberts has an excellent handle and he keep his defender off balance with a great head and shoulder fake. Once he got past the defender he used a floater and finished at the tin. This kid is something to watch.

Super Skillcase Profile: Dylan Harper (Franklin Lakes, NJ)

Name: Dylan Harper 

Hometown: Franklin Lakes, NJ 

Position: Forward 

Class: 2024 

Breakdown: Dylan was one of the top 5 players in his grade level at this event. The smooth forward glided to the basket and finished with ease over smaller defenders. He has some flair in his game and substance to back it up.

Friday, November 17, 2017

Super Skillcase Profile: Ryan Pettit (Westfield, NJ)

Name: Ryan Pettit 

Hometown: Westfield, NJ 

Position: Combo Guard 

Class: 2022 

Breakdown: The aggressive guard was in attack mode at the Super Skillcase. He’s a crafty dribbler that hits the hole with a relentless approach. He has an arsenal of twisting layups and tough finishing moves. He was also can the open jumper. He definitely didn’t back down from the competition.

Super Skillcase Profile: Elijah Perkins (Belford, NJ)

Name: Elijah Perkins 

Hometown: Belford, NJ 

Position: Forward 

Class: 2022 

Breakdown: Perkins proved to be a big time finisher especially in transition. He’s an explosive leaper that excels when attacking along the baseline. He seemed to be wired to score during this event. He also played well on the other side of the ball. He has the size and quickness to guard several positions on the floor.

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Super Skillcase Profile: Zackary Davis (Manahawkin, NJ)

Name: Zackary Davis 

Hometown: Manahawkin, NJ 

Position: Forward 

Class: 2023 

Breakdown: This physical forward played strong inside and crashed the boards like a mad man. He also puts it all out on the defensive end. He was a good role player that brought a lot of energy to this event. Any high school coach would love to have this kid on their roster.

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Super Skillcase Profile: Shemar Cox (Vineland, NJ)

Name: Shemar Cox 

Hometown: Vineland, NJ 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2024 

Breakdown: Just like last year Cox once again shined during the Super Skillcase. He has a clean handle with both hands while traveling as quick as a cat. He has a high basketball IQ and demonstrated by him having his head up and passing forward all the time. He was definitely one of the top if not the top point guard in his group.

Super Skillcase Profile: Dylan Seay (Brick, NJ)

Name: Dylan Seay 

Hometown: Brick, NJ 

Position: Shooting Guard 

Class: 2023 

Breakdown: Seay has nice size on wing while making things happened off the dribble and from the perimeter. He has a finesse type of game but will stick his head inside to grab a rebound. He’s an interesting prospect who should only get better in time.

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Super Skillcase Profile: Nasir Navarro (Union, NJ)

Name: Nasir Navarro 

Hometown: Union, NJ 

Position: Forward 

Class: 2022 

Breakdown: Navarro has a natural ratchet and will a shot from anywhere on the floor. He looked his best when he was in the catch and shoot routine. He made the defense pay for doubling down on the post or sagging off of him all together.

Super Skillcase Profile: Stephen Ehrlich (Mount Laurel, NJ)

Name: Stephen Ehrlich 

Hometown: Mount Laurel, NJ 

Position: Shooting Guard 

Class: 2022 

Breakdown: Ehrlich is very aggressive on the offensive end. He hit the gaps on the defense and scored using a floater or kissing it off the glass. His handle is crafty enough for him to get around many defenders.

Super Skillcase Profile: Chidi Nwigwe (Monroe, NY)

Name: Chidi Nwigwe 

Hometown: Monroe, NY 

Position: Combo Guard 

Class: 2025 

Breakdown: Monroe is a long rangy guard with the ability to side step through traffic. His jump shot was dropping and uses a speed dribble to get to the cup. The kid has been a proven winner on the Spotlight circuit for years and we forward to watching more of him this season.

Monday, November 13, 2017

Super Skillcase Profile: Toby Ojukwu (Voorhees, NJ)

Name: Toby Ojukwu 

Hometown: Voorhees, NJ 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2023 

Breakdown: Toby kept his hot play going at the Super Skillcase. The aggressive point guard put enormous pressure on the defense while attacking the cup. He has enough dribble moves to get past most defenders. He showed he could score or set up teammates. On defense he was his usual ball hawk self, causing turnovers and playing the passing lanes.

Super Skillcase Profile: Isaiah Griffin (Union, NJ)

Name: Isaiah Griffin 

Hometown: Union, NJ 

Position: Combo Guard 

Class: 2022 

Breakdown: Griffin was very explosive especially in the open floor. He pushed the rock down the throat of the defense and scored in the lane. He also caused some havoc on the defensive end by pressuring the rock and forcing turnovers. He was a nice looking North Jersey guard.

Super Skillcase Profile: Deuce Adams (Washington, DC)

Name: Deuce Adams 

Hometown: Washington, DC 

Position: Point Guard 

Class: 2025 

Breakdown: Adams plays in the mold of a throwback DC guard. He has a mean stutter step crossover and a flashy handle. I love how he’s a willing passer wants he gets into the lane. If his game continues to develop he will be a name to know in the DMV area.

Super Skillcase Profile: Jalil Schenck (Palmer Township, PA)

Name: Jalil Schenck 

Hometown: Palmer Township, PA 

Position: Combo Guard 

Class: 2022 

Breakdown: This sparkplug guard was perhaps the best on ball defender in the building. He was a ball hawk the entire 94 feet and was a nightmare for ball handlers. Offensively, his motor was through the roof and pushed the rock with extreme passion. He showed he could score or distribute the rock.

Sunday, November 12, 2017

Super Skillcase Profile: Jebron Harris (North Brunswick, NJ)

Name: Jebron Harris 

Hometown: North Brunswick, NJ 

Position: Forward 

Class: 2025 

Breakdown: Harris showed good ball skills and the ability to finish at the rim. He isn’t afraid of contact and is very willing to get physical. Right now, he plays the big man role for his squad but we see him transitioning to the wing in coming years.
