Quoron Williams Guard (Maxson MS)- Williams earned All Tournament Team honors during this event with his stellar play.

He finished with 15 points in the win while also chipping in 8 points in their semi-finals loss.
Victor Torres-Hunt Forward (Maxson MS)- Torres-Hunt passes the look test and showed some promise during the quarterfinals. He got deep position combine with some decent post moves. He also hit the glass hard for rebounds. He tallied 11 points in this contest.
Yosir Wright Guard (Maxson MS)- Wright has an awkward release on his shot but it was effective. He loves using a floater after getting into the crest of the defense. He’s also effective on defense while moving his feet well and creating havoc.
Ala-amean Watkins Forward (Maxson MS)- Watkins used his body control to score inside the paint. He’s nimble on his feet and has a soft touch. He’s used his quickness to get past shot blockers and get buckets. He finished with 10 points in their semi-finals loss.
Isaiah Gurley Forward (Rahway Academy)- Gurley got All Tournament Team honors after the effort he brought against eventual champion St. Peters. He was able to maneuver inside and hit the glass from the caroms.
