J.E.M. All Star Classic Profile: Tyus Battle (Edison, NJ)

Name: Tyus Battle

Hometown: Edison, NJ

Position: Shooting Guard

Class: 2016

Analysis: After receiving very few touches in the first half, “Kid Mamba” woke up to make things happen in the second stanza. He converted a few easy buckets posting up and was able to break away from defenders with an array of moves. This kid has had one of the most memorable grammar school basketball careers to date. He was a part of the group of players to help lay the foundation of Basketball Spotlight. He will be taking his instant offense to Gill St. Bernard next year. He has received several college offers already and was just invited to the USA Basketball Trials in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
