Motown Showdown 15u

Team Bolt won the championship over The Family in the 15u division. Here are a couple standout 15u players.

Rodney Scales 2015 6'5" Inkster/REACH
     The lefty forward was big for Reach on both ends of the court. He uses his length to block shots. Is not the most explosive athlete but still was able to block and alter plenty of shots. Did the majority of his work around the rim on offense, but showed he can make moves from 15 feet. With a couple more inches of growing to do he will most likely end up to be a very good face up 4 man.

Curtis Davison 2015 6'0" Grand Rapids Creston/GR Storm
     An explosive guard, who constantly got to the rim. Made plays and pushed the tempo. Step up his bigs for a number of dump-offs and easy lay-ups.

Brad Brechting 2015 6'8" Cedar Springs/GR Storm
     Tall and thin forward, who will be better as his body gets stronger. Made some nice post moves and finished around the rim. Used his length on the boards, and threw a couple shots away. Has the size to be dominant in the future.

Armani Lee 2015 6'4" Detroit King/REACH
     Made some nice moves from the wing, using his athleticism to finish at the rim. Can hit the mid-range jumper and also scored with his back to the basket. Showed his athleticism and handle when he got out in transition. Has a bright future and he continues to work on his perimeter skills.

Xavier Cochran 2015 6'4" Ann Arbor Huron/The Program
     The lefty has nice size and finished around the rim. Had a number of elbow isolations that he took advantage of, with his length and quickness.  Was active around the rim and on the O boards. Will be one to keep an eye on this spring and summer.
