Route by Powerhouse 15U Elite Sets Up Big Match-Up

by Justin Vargas | Posted on Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

Head Coach Vaughn Compton and his Powerhouse 15U Elite team have played two games thus far in the Bigfoot Las Vegas Easter Classic 16U Division. In both games they have dominated and won by 20+ points. You can pick your poison when it comes to this team.

If it’s not the highly-touted 6-foot-10 8th grader Dylan Anderson popping a jumper at the top of the key, it’s their 6-foot-8 freshman forward DaRon Holmes using his length to rise above a defense and get buckets in waves. Or may be it’s one of their 6-foot point guards Justus Jackson or Derek Kaps locking you up at midcourt, pickpocketing you like your in a back alley in Brooklyn and finishing with a bucket on the other end. Or may be it’s the super talented 6-foot-4 wing Jovan Ruffin using his array of offensive tools to ignite a run for a squad that has all the makings to be a special collection of talent and student-athletes.

One of the more impressive factors is just how humble and put together this group is. If you are around the group for more than 5 minutes you will easily see just how well they get along and genuinely enjoy playing together as a collective unit.

All of those factors and talents will be put to the ultimate test. In their first platinum bracket game they will square up against the only other 15U team that is playing up in age divisions, the Vegas Elite. It is the premium 2021 squad finished last year as the #4 AAU program in the country in their age group. This Powerhouse team has won 22 of their last 23 games while playing in 16U tournaments.

With a team that is just as loaded as our Arizona boys, the Vegas Elite team plays about as fast as you will see anybody play on the circuit.  They press full court and trap everything.  They get out in the open court with ease and their fast break offense flows.  It will be one of the better tests for Powerhouse's backcourt.

This match-up projects to be the best match-up of the 16U Division. A court filled with future Division-I prospects that both play at an extremely high level. It will be a true test to find out where this Powerhouse team is at on a national level.
