Top Gun Fall Classic Event Recap

Top Gun San Diego Fall Classic November 8-9, 2014

Top Gun San Diego Fall Classic November 8-9, 2014

 

The Top Gun Fall Classic played host to 50 Middle School teams from Phoenix, Fresno, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Orange County and the beautiful host city, San Diego.  Top Gun’s fourth and final 2014 tournament of the season ended a great year for San Diego youth basketball.  Top Gun’s 2014 tournaments hosted teams from numerous markets across the West Coast as well as Texas.  We expect a bigger and better 2015 for Top Gun that starts the new year with it’s Winter Challenge on January 10-11, 2015.  Information can be found on http://www.topgunbball.com/shop/january-winter-challenge/

The success of the Top Gun events in San Diego has also led us to partner with them and Indihoops in the 1st Annual Indihoops/WCE25 Invitational taking place on December 13-14, 14 in Irvine, California.  The event will match-up some of the Top Ranked WCE25 teams in a format that will truly define what it means to “Always Compete.”  For those teams that are ranked and have not responded to their invitation, please visit http://www.indihoops.com/tournaments/california/indihoopswce25-invite-only-tournament for more information on how to register for event.

WCE25’s Top 5  from #TGFallClassic

1. Fresno Next Level 12u, Arizona Rebels 13u, and Sacramento NorCal Spartans  – Although the weather and views in San Diego were great all weekend long, its not likely these teams enjoyed any of this.  We spoke with coaches from all three of these programs and it was made clear that they made the trek to San Diego to win a Championship and prove they were worthy of a better WCE25 Ranking.   #17 Fresno Next Level (pictured Top Right) not only won a championship, but their efforts earned them at least a Top 12 WCE25 Ranking. Although the #14 Arizona Rebels did not achieve their goal, they still proved worthy of their ranking.  TheArizona Rebels went 4-1 and beat 3 other Top 30 WCE25 teams on their way to the Championship game against NorCal Spartans out of Sacramento were they lost by 2 points..  The unranked NorCal Spartans  were a tad more impressive than the Arizona Rebels.  The NorCal Spartans went 5-0 and went from being unranked and into Top 15 WCE25 rankings.  Congratulations to all three teams!  We look forward to seeing each team compete at the Indihoops/WCE25 Invitational on December 13-14, 2014.

2. 2019 Jaren Nafarrete (Top Gun) displays what he learned from Jim Jones  – Although he has only been working with Jim Jones (one of the Top West Coast Basketball Trainers) for a short time, Jaren seems to have picked up quite bit in that short time.  Jaren was one of the more impressive players at the #TGFallClassic.  Jaren can push the ball under control, has good court vision and can and will attack the key with success.  The 5’5″ Point Guard may not look like a beast, but he sure eats like one.

3. 2021 Michael Wingfield  (San Diego High Intesity) – Michael is another talented point guard that showed great skill set at the #TGFallClassic.  Although he plays the point position for his squad, Michael seems more comfortable scoring.  The young guard displayed great offensive confidence. Michael can create his own shot and does well shooting the mid range jumper as well as the deep three.

4. 2020 DeShawn Lynch (NorCal Spartans)   –DeShawn helped lead his Sacramento squad to a 13u Championship and an upcoming Top 15 WCE25 Ranking.    The 6’2″ Center was a monster in the paint in the Championship game as he pulled down 16 rebounds (7 of which were on the offensive glass). Although he plays big, DeShawn is light on his feet and seems more at ease at being a playmaker from the post position.

5. Earl Watson Elite Silver 2019 tandem Jacob Ray and Jarod Lucas shoot the lights out   – The Top 5 #BILAACAMP 2019 ballers will usually to prefer to do most of the damage inside.  Jacob, because of his good footwork, will usually do most of his work in the low post.  Jarod, simply because he prefers contact, will do most of his damage by driving to the basket.  This weekend, they added their outside game to their inside game.  Jacob was on fire from midrange all weekend long.  The 6’5″ Forward  Jacob had a game where he hit 6 straight mid range shots from different areas on on the floor.  The 6’1″ Guard Jarod also had a game on Championship Sunday where he went all net on 5 straight deep three jumpers.  The talented tandem will be on full display at the upcoming Elite 32 Camp on November 29-30 in Anaheim, CA.
