King Of The Capital Showdown 4th Grade Preview (MPO Elite Vs Gymwork Training)

The Basketball Spotlight Inaugural King Of The Capital Showdown will take place Saturday at Incarnation Church. This event will feature five games involving the Trenton area AAU teams. Here’s a preview of the 4th Grade Division Showdown. 


MPO ELITE: These guys come into this event with a wealth of experience. They just finished 7th in the country at the AAU D2 Nationals. They feature some really good baby ballers including Santana Hodge, Sean Turner and Zaquan Cullers. They love to press and turn team’s over. In the half court set Turner is capable of breaking down the defense and kicking it to the Hodge to for a shot.
GYMWORK TRAINING: The new guys on the block have been playing well in local leagues. They are represented in the back court by DJ Chew and Jamir Conover. They also have a budding player in forward Mark Johnson. GT tries to bring a discipline approach and teamwork to will their victories. I also heard to have added a stud from across the water in PA. 

Prediction: These teams have matched up in the past with MPO Elite winning those battles. Now Gymwork Training will be trying to edge one in the win column. I think it will be a tough matchup and Gymwork’s new addition should be a good help but I still have MPO Elite being victorious. MPO BY 5!
