Ladera Ranch, Calif. (CA) — Championship Saturday. Only four teams remain in play for the Adidas Gauntlet Finale championship: Compton Magic, Mass Rivals, NY Jayhawks and Team YGC36. Every team will be fighting to capture the final Adidas title of the summer. 

Compton Magic Elite vs NY Jayhawks: 

Compton Magic are the defending Adidas Gauntlet Finale champions and will have their hands full with the combination of the Jayhawks, Andre Curbelo and Zed Key, both players have raised their stock over the course of the past two weekends. Curbelo, a crafty guard who has a great feel for the game, has been the pulse for the Jayhawks will have to get going early against a stiff Magic backcourt. Key, an athletic forward with soft touch, has turned a lot of heads with the array of ways he has been able to score, posting double figures in every game this weekend. For the Magic it will be up to their backcourt of Dalen Terry and Jaylen Clark to get going early, they played in tight games yesterday but Terry and Clark pulled them out to a victory combining for 44 points in the elite 8. Without Evan Mobley, Chibuzo Agbo has stepped up as a board hungry forward who can run handle the ball in the open court and make smart decisions. In this game, it’s expected to be a close tough fought battle between the East coast and West coast. 

Mass Rivals vs Team YGC36: 

For Team YGC36 they have steam rolled their way into the Final Four knocking off an expected favorite, Dream Vision and continued rolling against Exum Elite winning by 19. The momentum seems to be on their side as they might be playing the best as a team collectively this weekend. Led by 2021 guard, Harrison Ingram, YGC36 has been a pesty defensive team playing elite help defense and their defensive versatility has made it tough for opponents to get in a scoring groove against them. On the other hand Mass Rivals guard, Dallion Johnson, hit the biggest shot of the tournament to send them to the Final Four and forward, Jordan Geromino, continues to turn heads with his offensive play as he has averaged 18 points between the Sweet 16 and Elite 8. This game will be filled with excellent guard and forward play, for a chance to play Compton Magic or NY Jayhawks in the title game.
