The Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Division makes the future look bright. Here’s our look at the Best Of The Best and All Tournament Team.
Tip Off Classic 6th Grade Best Of The Best
Best Performer: Jaydon Branche (Expressions Elite)- Branche had some outstanding moments during the weekend he has size, game and is oozing with potential. The X looks like they have another budding star in Branche.
Best Prospect: Jett Harrison (Team Final)- Harrison can flat out go. He does damage from either guard spot and has the motor to match. He will be a joy to watch for some years.
Best Shooter: Jamieson Young (SBA 2028)- Young lets it fly from deep with accuracy. He’s so dangerous one team played a box and one defense to slow him down.
Best Scorer: Ethan Riullano (Riverside Hawks)- His team didn’t make a deep run, but Ethan was able to fill it up from all three levels.
Best Floor General: Naz Hilario (Expressions Elite)- Every championship team needs a quarterback and Hilario did the job. His game even has some flavor to keep the crowd buzzing.
Best Impact: Tyree Throp (Team Final)- This kid was everywhere on the floor on offense and defense. He was hard to contain because he plays the game with so much energy.
Best Playmaker: JaJuan Bennett (SBA 2028)- Bennet is a joy to watch with a flashy handle. He gets it done scoring the rock and making others better when serious dimes.
Best Defender: Willie Darden (Expressions Elite)- The lanky forward anchored the X defense over the weekend. His play usually led to fast breaks for his teammates.
