A.O.T. Juniors vs Central Florida Elite 2013
Both teams entered the game after getting off to great starts in their first two games. With 18 Division One graded players on the floor according to our JumpOffPlus.com staff, there was no shortage of talent. Led by Diamond DeShields of Norcross, Ga., A.O.T. rent or buy a house essay jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. DeShields is the No. 3 ranked junior nationally by ESPNHoopGurlz and has scholarship offers from multiple elite level programs ESPN HoopGurlz Week In Review. CFE countered with No. 12 ranked junior Ronni Williams from Daytona Beach, Fla., who is being recruited heavily as well. Though A.O.T. came away with the early season victory, our staff is almost certain that these to teams will run into each other again down the road perhaps at the PeachStateBasketball.com Elite 32 Summer Jam in late July.
