Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase 6th Grade Top Performers Part 1

The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase Session 2 6th Grade Division showed us how bright our future is. Here’s our first look at the Class of 2027 top performers. 

Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase 6th Grade Top Performers Part 1 

Reggie Moore Guard (Philadelphia, PA) – This athletic guard was everywhere on the floor making play after play on a loaded team. He stood out that is why he is our Most Outstanding Player for the 6th grade division. This combo guard could dribble, pass and shoot. He rebounded well and then pushed it leading the break making the right pass at the right time. He had a nice 3 point shot and he locked up on defense. Reggie seemed to be thinking three steps ahead of everyone on the court and he had a much older game that will translate for years to come.

Dwayne Ruffin Jr. Guard (Philadelphia, PA) – Ruffin is an elite level PG that controls the game with his pace and high basketball IQ. He has a quick change of direction and is an elite passer. He likes to get all his teammates involved but can pick up the scoring slack if needed. He uses his toolchest of moves off the dribble to get to the basket and finish. He reminds you of Kenny Anderson.

DeShaun Holden Guard (Wilmington, DE) – Holden is a tough nosed PG that knows how to get buckets but also locks up on the defensive end. He has good on ball defense and makes it difficult for the opposing PG to get his team into their offense. Offensively he was one of the better 3-point shooters in the division either knocking them down off the catch or dribble. He had a nice handle and good court vision.

Andre Robinson Forward (Willingboro, NJ) – Robinson is a strong forward that has a nice touch on his baby hook and mid-range jumper. He was good at finishing through contact around the rim. Andre rebounded at a high rate and then threw the outlet pass and ran the floor hard receiving the ball back for easy buckets.

Hazaiah Barbour Forward (Elizabeth, NJ) – Barbour is a point forward that grabs the rebound and leads the break. At this point in his development is more of a straight-line driver that can finish through contact and he understands how to get to the free throw line. Defensively he blocks a lot of shots.

Jakeem Carroll Guard (Chester, PA) – Carroll is a crafty PG that plays with a high level of energy. He has a good handle that allows him to beat his defender off the dribble. He has a consistent jumper with range out to the 3-point line. We liked how he hit a defender with the Rondo on the fast break and finished with the left hand.

Tyler Sutton Forward (Philadelphia, PA) – Sutton is a long athletic bouncy wing forward that can handle the ball. He grabs rebounds and pushes the rock showing his ability to pass the rock to an open teammate. He does a good finishing around the rim and can straight line attack off the dribble in the half court.

Tylief Washam Guard (Blackwood, NJ) – This pint size point guard had handles for days. He had no fear attacking the paint and shooting his floater over the big shot blocker in the lane. Despite his size he was effective playing to his strengths and if he made a mistake, he had a short memory and the next play he would be back in attack mode. We loved the passion that he played with.
