Expressions 14u Take Summer Slam Title

Basketball Spotlight's Summer Slam had a loaded final four in their u14 division with Expressions Elite, Team Scan, F.A.C.E.S., and Team Final. 

The final proved to be a dramatic one as Expressions would meet Team Scan and utilizing a balanced attack, hold on for a 52-51 decision en route to the championship. 

The title caps an impressive summer run for Expressions as they took the championship at the Hall of Fame Junior Nationals and advanced to the gold bracket at AAU Super Showcase with a 3-1 record. 

The team consists of nine rising freshmen in 5'7" guard Justin Stewart from Williston Northampton, 5'9" guard Zavia Williams from Springfield Central High School, 6'8" forward Chris Baldwin from Hillside School, 6'1" swingman Sultan Olusekun from Belmont Hill, 6'6" forward Aaron McClean from St. Mark's, 6'2" shooting-guard Tyree Weston from Tabor Academy, 6'2" swingman Chris DiClemente from Kingston High School, 5'11" guard Juwan Gooding from Milton High School, and 6'7" big man Ryan Noel from Roxbury Latin School.
