Basketball Spotlight Feature: Meet Money Marcellas
Marcellas Washington headed to San Diego, California to the Adidas Jr. Phenom Camp last summer to make his name known has a national player. The lefty from the Blue Grass State must have put in major work because he finished as the #2 point guard in his class. His Hoop Dreams AAU coach Mike Scott wasn’t surprised: “His game is beyond his years. He’s a top notch point guard and showed up for us big during last season’s run. He should see time on the frosh team at Lexington Catholic as a 7th Grader” he continued.
If you haven’t seen Washington rock he is a lefty with some Brandon Jennings type flair to his game. He also has the swagger that some might take as arrogance but his coach will quickly set them straight: “He has a swagger and can get emotional at times but that’s because he’s a tough player and a product of the inner city of Lexington. I love that aspect of his game though. He gives our team toughness” said Scott.
We will be checking out Washington during numerous events this year and let you know about his progress.
