Spiece Run-N-Slam: 15-U division standout performances

(players listed in alphabetical order)
Pierre Bracket, Mustangs- the wing is known for his hustle and defense but he showed his offensive skills this weekend. Might be the best defender in his class and his teammates are starting to reward him for his efforts.
Carlton Brudidge, The Family- he's a tad bit older than most freshman but he knows how to use that to his advantage. He bullies his way to the basket by simply overpowering the defense but he can step back and hit the jumper just as easily.

Brandan Kearney, Mustangs- the 3-ball was really flowing this weekend. the 6-4 combo guard was pulling up from deep knocking down big shots through out the weekend. He continues to impress with his court vision that leads to great assist.
AJ Mathews, Common Bond- carried the scoring load for his team this weekend and I mean carried the load- averaged 30 points a game for the entire weekend. Got to the foul line and made teams pay for it.

Andrew Maxey- Camp Daryl- a big guard at 6-2 that can stroke the 3-ball. His long range shooting allowed Camp Daryl to win their pool and it was his shooting that kept CD close against the Stangs.

Jullian Plummer, Camp Daryl- strong and physical post play, he only stands 6-4 but plays like he's 6-8. Not much of an offensive game, yet, but he's not afraid to mix it up down low.

Matt Poches, Mustangs- this 6-3 combo guard is a scoring machine. Every game he puts up points in bunches on such a loaded team. He knows how take advantage of his defender by backing down smaller guards or driving right by the bigger ones.
Ray Tillman, Mustangs- starting to get more minutes and he knows what to do with them. He plays hard and really knows hot to push the ball and make plays in traffic. Made some big plays down the stretch in the double-OT loss against All-Ohio Red.

Amir Williams, King James- the 6-9 center did most of his damage on the defensive end with rebounds and blocking shots. He still gets his fair share of points even without many touches.
