Basketball Spotlight AC Showcase 6th Grade Top Performers Part 3
Jayden Ramirez Guard (Riverside Hawks) – Jayden is a long scoring guard that looks like he has a high ceiling and will be a prospect down the road. He finished through contact and has a nice floater off the bounce. He can knock down the 3ball and also has some nice passing skills. With his size he rebounds his position well and can be a lock down defender. Ramirez finished with 13 points in the game we saw.
Sincere Henderson Guard (Riverside Hawks) – Every team is better off if they have a true PG and Henderson was that for his Hawks team. He looked to facilitate first and get his teammates involved but showed that he could score if needed. He made one of the better passes we saw when he completed an around the back pass off the dribble for an easy bucket.
Braylan Rituo Forward (Riverside Hawks) – Braylan was one of the better long term prospects we saw in the 6th grade division. He is raw offensively but he showed he can finish around the rim. With his length he caused problems defensively for his opponents clogging up the paint blocking shots and getting rebounds. He was in foul trouble for most of the game we watched but we feel we will be hearing a lot about this kid down the road.
Elijah Reid Guard (Nova 94 Feet) – Elijah had a good showing in the game we watched. He can knock down the long ball and he showed how he excels in transition. He has good size for a guard and is very active on defense. With his nice handle he can navigate the floor and Reid has above average court vision as we saw him make a nifty one handed tough pass to get an easy assist. He had 9 points in the game we watched.
Kameron Courtney Guard (Nova 94 Feet) – Courtney is a big guard that is at his best attacking the basket. This allows him to get to the FT line where he can convert. He also crashes the glass helping his team rebound. Kameron also showed he can stretch the floor as he buried two 3 pointers in the game we watched. He tallied 10 points against the NJ Bulldogs.
Chancellor Perkins Guard (Nova 94 Feet) – Every team needs a floor spacer or a zone buster the way the game is being played today. Perkins is that guy for his team. He showed his ability to stroke it from deep in the game we watched knocking down three 3 pointers finishing the game with 11 points.
London Carson Guard (NJ Bulldogs) – Carson is a nice wing guard that is one of the primary scorers on his squad. He moves well without the ball freeing himself up for open shots. He can score from all three levels with range out to the three point line as we knock down two in the game we watched. London finished with 12 points against Nova 94 Feet.
