King Of The Capital Showdown 5th Grade Preview (MPO Elite vs T Town Ballers)

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 5th Grade Division Showdown. 


MPO ELITE: The MPO Elite squad has shown good success this season on the AAU circuit and in league play. Now they will be trying to close out the season with the title of “The Kings”. They have a nice roster including guards Marvin McNeil, Javion Ceasar Jones and Aiyvaye Ingram. Inside Marjon Ingram and Hyshyon Cannon look to get the job done. They should be well prepared for this war.
T Town Ballers: TTB counters with a mean trio of Isaiah Gore, Amir Barber and Noah Johnson. Gore known as “The Machine” is the creator, while Barber sets the tempo and Johnson brings huge confidence while just finishing playing in the Middle School division of the serious Moody Park Summer League. 

Prediction: This is a close one as both teams are hungry for a victory. TTB wants to finish their tough AAU season off with bragging rights while MPO Elite will be looking for revenge after being upset in the Moody Park Championship by some of the members of TTB. In the end I think Gore take over the game ability combined with Johnson’s toughness with give TTB the edge. TTB By 3
