The Basketball Spotlight Spring Invitational 5th Grade Division gave us a good look at the future. Here’s a look at the Top Performers from this division.
Spring Invitational 5th Grade Top Performers
Ayden Lewis Guard (New Heights)- Lewis had a good championship finishing with 10 points but his biggest points came in his game winner on the baseline. His shot helped New Heights take home the Spring Invitational Championship.
Everett Kelley Jr. Guard (New Heights)- Kelley Jr. can score the rock and he proved it while nailing a couple of treys from the perimeter. He also can handle the pill and make decisions. Kelley can also get after it on the defensive end of the floor.
Julian Harris Guard (New Heights)-This point guard can get it done. I love his swag on the floor and the energy he brings to the game. We can’t wait to see his youngster again; he finished the game with 8 points.
Kayvon Clayborne Forward (New Heights)- Clayborne controlled the paint on both ends of the floor. He was a shot blocker and controlled the boards. On the offensive end Clayborne scored near the cup and gave his squad several second chance opportunities.
Tyler Sutton Guard (DPS Success)- Sutton has to be one of the best guards in the country. He plays an aggressive style and leaves everything on the floor. He’s capable of getting it done on all three levels. He finished with a game high 16 markers. This kid is fierce.
Semaj Stone Guard (DPS Success)- Stone is one of the smoothest players in the game. He has a deadly outside shot and got finishing kids around the cup. He has total confidence and should stretch out to a legit two guard size in a few years.
Keron Booth Guard (DPS Success)- Booth shot didn’t fall a much in the finals but I can see from his confidence and stroke it’s something there. I like how he played big on the floor in other situations. He sacrificed his game to help his team win.
Ian Smith Guard (DPS Success)- Smith is a legit southpaw point guard with a slick handle and can see the floor with the best of them. He’s a critical part of this team’s success. He scored 7 points in the championship game.
