The Basketball Spotlight AC Showcase 7th Grade Division has some serious talent and some fresh faces. Here’s our first look at the Top Performers from this division.
Basketball Spotlight AC Showcase 7th Grade Top Performers Part 2
Antonio Sellers Forward (NY Gauchos)- The forward continues to show why he’s one of the best players in the country. At times he plays the point forward position and can either score or make the correct pass. He’s seems to have improved in quickness and explosiveness when attacking the basket and if his jump shot is falling his game goes to another level. We made Isaiah Briscoe comparisons a couple of years ago but now his size and style of play reminds me of a young Kyle Anderson.
Franscisco Mattei Forward (NY Gauchos)- No many goes as hard as Mattei on this level. He attacks the basket relentlessly off the dribble while drawing contact. He lived at the charity stripe this weekend. He demonstrates great body control and strength to finish through contact.
Issac Gonzales Guard (NY Gauchos)- Gonzalez was a great help for the Gauchos as he had a solid weekend. He gave the Choz a threat from the perimeter which helped stretch the defense. He played well off the Gauchos attacking guard style.
Dariq Whitehead Forward (NY Lightning)- No matter what uniform Whitehead shows up in he does damage. The natural wing once again showed he is one of the elite players in the country. He had best outing against one of his former squads with 26 points versus Team Magic. This kid commands attention on the floor and he should jump into the national spotlight this summer.
Jaquan Sanders Guard (NY Lightning)- The Lightning made it to the final four and this kid’s shooting was a major reason. Sanders has a mean ratchet and will let it go from anywhere. He really showed his range in the semifinals by nailing 6 treys in their loss to WE R 1. He can really stroke it.
Darrell Victory Guard (NY Lightning)- The quick guard runs the point but can also get into the scoring column. He has breakdown ability and gets into the lane with ease. If his jumper or floater is dropping he’s much more effective on the floor.
