Five NE Teams in Freshmen Showcase
- In addition to the 14u AAU Super Showcase, the 15u AAU Super Showcase also gets going down in Disney World in the next few days. There are five New England Teams in the Field of 96. Let's take a look.
BABC - After winning the 15u AAU National Championships in Little Rock a few weeks back, the BABC Freshmen will try to pull the Nationals/Showcase Double-Dip. And this time, Wayne Selden won't be at Lebron James Camp 'til the Final so they are definitely the favorite. We'll see if Damion Smith can continue his scoring tear...he averaged 26ppg at the Nationals. BABC is in Pool T with Each One Teach One (Polk) out of Minny, and Team Assault and Team CB, two teams with whom I'm not familiar.
Expressions Elite - Played with an interesting roster in Springfield which included Jackson Donahue (RI Hawks) and Luis Rodriguez of East Longmeadow HS to go along with Pat Benzan, Drew Schea, Nick Simonetti, and Jeremy Miller. We'll see what the Showcase Roster looks like, but this is definitely a group that could put a run together. They'll play in Pool I against the Orlando Suns, the Wisconsin Playmakers, and the Wilson Blue Devils out of North Carolina.
Metro Boston - This squad hasn't played much together, but their roster is intriguing with Aaron Falzon, Mike Rodriguez, Timmance McKinney, and Carlin Haymon. They are in Pool F with the CP3 All-Stars out of NC, the Philadelphia Ballhawks, and Florida Select.
MABC - Guards Aahmanee Santos and Earl Stephen Jr. lead the Bengals into Pool A competition against Virginia Assault, the Covington Cavaliers out of Georgia, and Each One Teach One.
Connecticut Select - While the CT Select 17s are playing out in Vegas at the Fab 48, the Freshmen will be in Orlando playing in Pool U against Team Charlotte, Team Rebels Gold, and Florida Family..
