Despite their youth, sporting four 2018 players that were playing up, Spectrum 16s were a gritty team that competed all summer while getting better each and every tournament. Led by 2017 Aaron Martin of Martinsville and Dominique Joyce of Patrick Henry, the freshmen stepped up to the challenge early and played their parts to support the two leading scorers. They weren’t the biggest team, with Joyce being their tallest player at 6’6, however they defended the length of the court, sped teams up and played discipline team basketball on the offensive end, and finished with 20 wins on the summer. Here’s a recap of Spectrum Sports 16’s summer.
