Clash For The Cup 6th Grade Top Performers
Chris Lee Guard (Team Final)- The South Jersey product came up big in the finals as Team Final avenged an earlier loss to Expressions. Lee was on fire from deep while nailing 3 treys and leading the team in scoring with 16 points. His strong frame also makes it difficult to slow him down when he’s driving the lane.
Ky Strong Guard (Team Final)- Strong is matchup problem because he can play and guard multiple positions. When he’s pushing the rock in transition his versatility keeps defenders at his mercy. I like how he finishes off plays. He helped out the scoring for the champs with 14 markers.
Tyree Thorp Guard (Team Final)- Tyree was the third scorer for Team Final in the championship game. He gets buckets in a variety of ways while also showing playmaking tendencies for teammates. I like his swagger and confidence on the floor. He hit the double digit mark with 10 points while helping his team get the banner.
Willie Darden Forward (Expressions Elite – Black)- Darden had a heck of a weekend as the versatile forward boosted his stock. He erupted for 24 points in their first meeting with Team Final and also made his presence on the defensive end. I like this kid’s potential.
Naz Hilario Guard (Expressions Elite – Black)- Naz also had a good weekend as the guard step on the floor. His big game came in the semifinals as he drilled 3 treys on his way to 20 points in their win over Team Jacko. He also had a decent showing in their championship loss with double digits versus Team Final.
Brayden Buckley Guard (Expressions Elite – Black)- Buckley can also shoot the rock as he showed in multiple games. He also got hot in the semifinals scoring 11 points and drained a few treys in their championship game against Team Final. He truly stretches the defense.
