Basketball Spotlight AC Showcase 6th Grade Top Performers Part 2 

Khalid Sanders Forward (Hilltoppers) – Sanders is a long wing that is growing into his body. He rebounds the ball well and has a soft touch around the rim. He is active on both ends and he has the ability to be a versatile defender. We also like the energy he plays with and are excited to track his development down the road. He tallied 14 points in the game we watched.

Basketball Spotlight AC Showcase 6th Grade Top Performers Part 1 

 Ahmad Nowell Forward (Fidonce) – Nowell was like Lebron James in the 6th Grade division. He could dribble, pass, score, and defend and was dominating at times that we watched. We saw him make a no look pass that resulted in an And 1 and we also liked the fact that he moved without the ball when one time we saw him make a great cut to the basket and his teammate found him for an easy bucket. He was very hard to contain and he was at his best attacking the rim. He finished with 10 points in the championship and 17 points in their semifinal win against the Gauchos where he lived at the FT line.

William Norman

The 7th Grade Division at the Atlantic City Showcase was the toughest by far. Here’s a look at Part 2 Top Performers from the event. 

Basketball Spotlight Atlantic City Showcase 7th Grade Top Performers Part 2 

William Norman Forward (NJ Bulldogs)- The walking double-double lived up to his name as he dominated the paint while leading NJ Bulldogs to the final four. He can literally carry defenders to the cup for buckets or usually ends up at the charity stripe. He’s not a player that needs to motivated because he enters the game with a mean streak. He averaged nearly 20 points a contest and over 10 boards. He’s a fierce competitor.

Basketball Spotlight Atlantic City Showcase 8th Grade Top Performers Part 3

Basketball Spotlight Atlantic City Showcase 8th Grade Top Performers Part 2 

Ben Roy Guard (Team Rio) – In today’s era of basketball floor spacing and stretching the floor with the 3ball seems like the way the game has evolved to. Roy is Rio’s floor spacer with a sweet stroke behind the line. Ben also can be a secondary ball handler and as he continues to gain confidence with his ball handling we see him moving over to the PG position long term. He has a high IQ and can score from all three levels. He finished with 16 points in the semifinal.
