Diary Of A Baller: Travis Upchurch (Bridgeport, CT) Entry #1

Hello Basketball Spotlight World,

Reclassifying has been a hot topic in youth basketball for years. Some think it’s done for attention and accolades while others feel it has become a necessary entity to get the best scholarship offer attainable. Below we have an article written by a parent that has been living through the reclass experience. I think it’s a deep insight and guide on the topic. We appreciate that she took the time to create and share it.

Hoop Star Dies From Tragic Accident (RIP Jo Jo)

Basketball Spotlight would like to send our deepest condolences to the family of Jomani “Jo Jo” Wright. Wright lost his life from a tragic car accident. Jomani starred at Basketball Spotlight during his days of playing with Riverside Hawks. The southpaw guard thrilled Spotlight fans with his tenacious playing style and willingness to compete against bigger competition. He received several writeups and videos on our platform from his performances. 

The basketball community is saddened by this tragedy and a Go Fund Me page has been started to help the family during these tough times. If you feel the need to support the family the link is below.
