12U AAU Nationals Top Performers Part 1

TJ Holmes (J3 Elite)

The 12U AAU Nationals took place this past week and Basketball Spotlight was in the building. We were able to take in a few games and developed a list of top performers. Here is the first group of top performers. 

12U AAU Nationals Top Performers Part 1 

TJ Holmes Guard (J3 Elite)- This lefty is a bucket getter and loves having the rock in crucial moments. He’s capable of hitting the big deep trey or converting at the cup. He demonstrated top body control especially around shot blockers. He was clutch down the stretch against Team Durant.


Rolijah Hardy Guard (J3 Elite)- Hardy has the perfect last name but he’s a tough nosed guard that penetrates the lane and finishes in traffic. He’s difficult to contain because of his strength and low center gravity. He hit some big shots and wanting the rock in crunch time.
Kanaan Carlyle Guard (J3 Elite)- Carlyle didn’t have his best game shooting but I could still see how much game he has. He has good form and the confidence to let shots go from very deep. When he’s handling the rock he demonstrated a great feel for the game. He’s a player we hope to see again soon.
Henry Hurst Forward (J3 Elite)- Hurst plays bigger than his size on the blocks. He hits the boards hard by boxing out and hustling to the rock. He terms of scoring he could hit the face up shot and get buckets along the baseline. He plays extremely hard.
Amani Hansberry Forward (Team Durant)- Hansberry was a load to handle on the blocks and in the paint. He’s a quick jumper with long arms that give him advantages over defenders. Once he got touches he scored at will. He forced double teams and still was able to convert at times.
Ace Valentin Guard (Team Durant)- You remember Valentin dominate at the Future Phenom Camp last season and now looked even better running the point. He has good poise and decision making ability. He carved his way through the defense and even showed he could hit the outside shot. I see he has a bright future in running a team.
Scottie Hubbard Guard (Team Durant)- Hubbard woke up for Team Durant in the second half. He attacked from the wing and hot some difficult shots. He’s good with hitting runners and scoring in transition.

Moody Park Summer League Top Performers (Elementary Division)

Tushyne Johnson

Basketball Spotlight returned to Moody Park yesterday to check out the elementary division of their summer. This event gave us a chance to see some of the up and coming talent. 

Moody Park Top Performers (Elementary Division) 

Tushyne Johnson Guard (Coderite Electric)- Johnson is young as you know and lacks strength but oozes potential from his veins. I like his length and potential size while attempting to make plays off the bounce. The important aspect is that he’s already playing the guard position at a young age. He has the ability to create and make plays or teammates.

Trenton Youth Basketball Summer League Top Performers (Elementary Division)

Noah Johnson (Positive Black Image Connect)

The Trenton Youth Basketball Summer League kicked off today and Basketball Spotlight was in the building and watched the elementary school level play. Here’s a look at our Top Performers we saw today. 

Trenton Youth Basketball Summer League Top Performers 

Noah Johnson Guard (Positive Black Image Connect)- A basketball analyst loves seeing a player that has a good feel for the game because it makes your job easier. Johnson shows those instincts when he’s pushing the rock and making decisions. He got into the lane at will but knew when to drop the pass off or score to help his squad. He’s a only baby but keep an eye out for him.


Ceasar Royster Guard (Positive Black Image Connect)- Royster is another guard that caught my eye. He has a strong frame but still maneuvers around shot blockers with a mean floater. I like his penetration skills and scorers mentality. He has some smoothness that should keep us interested.
CJ Owens Guard (Positive Black Image Connect)- Owens is a sparkplug pass first guard that lives on his penetration skills. His drive, draw and dish game helps him standout on the floor. He never believes he couldn’t get to the cup. His fire and court vision should make him relevant on the floor in years on the floor.
Zaquan Cullers Guard (Green Team 4 Life)- This youngster has deep range and isn’t afraid to pull the trigger. He will spot up a few feet behind the 3 point line and let it go. I saw him knock down some deep treys. He’s fearless from deep.
Zaquay Cullers Guard (Green Team 4 Life)- The other Cullers brother controls the game with the rock in his hands. He has a good handle and some scoring ability when capable. Finally he has serious will to win.
Jakye Livingston Guard (Green Team 4 Life)- Livingston was another guard on this squad that caught our interest. He has similar size as Zaquay but looks to score a little more. He alo has his entire future ahead of him. Watch out for this kid.
Hyshon Cannon Guard (Coderite Electric)- Last but not least Cannon has the chance to be one of the best prospects I saw today. He wasn’t the most dominant but his size and outside shooting ability translates to the next level. He has a smooth scoring approach.
