2018 ALL-XFINITY ALL-TOURNAMENT TEAMS ANNOUNCED
March 11, 2018 7:26 pm
After much thought we present you with the CAPITOL HOOPS 2018 All-Xfinity-All-Tournament-
Stats play a huge role in deciding the teams, but watching the flow of the game and seeing how each player left their mark on the games this weekend was also huge. All tournament team is solely decided on how players played in their game(s) at Xfinity Center, not just the championship game but their overall performance in both games (or the rare scenario that they made this list and only played 1 game). Regular season play and regional playoff play had no bearing. Winning was the most important factor. You won’t find many players who didn’t win a state championship on the first team.
Where you are going to college, or what AAU team you play for has no bearing whatsoever on our votes.
