Last month the annual Generation Next Basketball Association saw its third year come to a conclusion with another excellent couple of weekends of middle school basketball that saw some solid development and competition at the 5th-8th grade levels.  The sixth grade level saw the Illinois Speed defend their championship behind a balanced attack paced by Reggie Fleurima.  Here’s quick look at the MVP for the 6th grade division and the championship at the age group from this past month...

2016 GNBA MVP – 6TH GRADE DIVISION
REGGIE FLEURIMA – PF – ILLINOIS SPEED

The talented young forward was consistently dominant throughout the league as he paced the team in scoring and rebounding game in and game out.  He shot over 70 percent in the championships and he served as a dominant force on both ends of the court in helping pace his team to the league championship over a very deep and talented field of teams this year.  He can score around the basket, in transition, and at the mid-range level and he displayed that improving skill and paired it with his instincts and toughness in the paint to create problems for opposing teams.  Another solid showing but the developing young forward out of Illinois.
