This past weekend in Garfield Heights Ohio, NEO Youth Elite held its annual national basketball camp. Over 300 of the best youth basketball players in the nation grades 3rd -11th were in attendance.
One of the most anticipated rematches from last year was the matchup between Jaythan Bosch and Julian Newman.
Before last year’s camp Bosch was relatively unknown, at least unknown on the social media scene. That all changed when Bosch challenged Newman and got the best of the YouTube sensation multiple times causing everyone to storm the court and temporarily shut the camp down.
Newman is often challenged anywhere he goes because of his viral recognition and never backs down from anyone. After last year’s video racked up over 2 million views on YouTube, Newman definitely couldn’t wait to get his shot at redemption.
This year the matchup was a little more physical with Newman getting the upper hand. Both guards were aggressive, attacking the basket fearlessly but Newman was able to convert more around the rim.

Overall it was a good showing for both players, especially Bosch who gained some national exposure for the second straight year.
Newman has been in the spotlight for a while now in his still extremely young career. He once again lived up to the hype of being one of the top players at the camp despite being challenged and having a target on his back.
