Peyton Brown (Team Phoenix): Old school back to the basket big, that has a soft touch around the basket. Peyton rebounds well in his area and is very tough to keep off of the glass. He showed solid footwork and a nice jump hook that’s tough to defend. Peyton finished with 14pts and was a big key to his team coming away with the win.
Cameron Gates (Charlotte Dragons): quick combo guard that scored the ball at all three levels. Gates let his hot three point shooting in the first half, open up his driving lanes in the second half. He also showed his play making ability by getting others involved when the defense made adjustments. He finished with s game high 25pts, including the deciding three pointer in overtime to seal the win.
Colin Thomas (Charlotte Dragons): Athletic wing with a high motor to match. Colin was at his best when attacking the basket and finishing at the backboard. Defensively he was able to use length and quick to disrupt the offense. Colin finished with 15pts in the win.
Ja’Quantae Harris (Take It By Force): tough as nails guard that plays with relentless energy on both sides of the floor. Really controlled the game and made the right play throughout the game. Harris set the tone early and led his team to a victory in the championship game.
Sullivan McDermott (Team Loaded Stephens): nice sized wing that showed the ability to score in bunches both from three and at the backboard. Very crafty offensively and played within himself during the game. Sullivan was a big reason his team was able to hang around most of the game, although they were not able to come away with the win.
