1 empty
Dallas, Texas


 

Key Player: Austin Grandstaff
Led by a pair of marksmen in Austin Grandstaff and Matt McQuaid, this team of 2015 players should continue as a No. 1 contender on the circuit. 

2 empty
Worldwide
Atlanta, Ga.

Key Player: Daniel Giddens
Worldwide suffered a one-point loss to last year's AAU National Champion, Texas Titans in the semis. With that Titans team playing up this year, watch out for Worldwide.

3 empty
Columbia, S.C.

Key Player: Perry Dozier, Jr. 
If guard play wins games, then Dozier Jr. and the Slammers should have no problem piling up enough victories for a top billing. 

4 empty
Compton, Calif.

Key Player: Sedrick Barefield
Barefield's combo guard skills have this West Coast team feeling like a Top-5 team in the nation. Can they back it up?

5 empty
Bronx, N.Y.

Key Player: Devonte Green
Devonte is the younger brother of NBA guard Danny Green and the bloodlines should be reflected on the court this season. 

6 empty
Atlanta Celtics (J-Smoove)
Atlanta, Ga.

Key Player: Josh Langford  
The Celtics were ousted in the quarterfinals last year at Nationals. Look for Langford and the C’s to be extra motivated this time around. 

7 empty
California Supreme
Los Angeles, Calif.

Key Player: Mason Shepard
At 6’5”, 190, this West Coast power forward is making noise in the 2013 class. His team will be, too. 

8 empty
The Family
Detroit, Mich.

Key Player: Joshua Johnson 
A 6’5” wing with guard skills, Johnson has The Family aiming for the top spot. This team was also ousted in last year's Nationals and will be playing with a chip on its shoulder.

9 empty
Las Vegas, Nev.

Key Player: Kendall Small
Dream Vision came up short at adidas Super 64 last year in its own backyard. They'll be out for revenge this season. 

10 empty
YAAACE
Toronto, Ontario

Key Player: Justin Jackson
Jackson is seen as one of the top prospects above the border. We'll see how well his talented team will fare this season against steep competition. 

Best of the Rest
