NyRhique Smith (Monmouth Regional)
The high school season kicked off this weekend and a few Basketball Spotlight Alums from the Class of 2016 got busy. Here’s a look at trio of frosh that got busy on the varsity level in New Jersey.
NyRhique Smith (Monmouth Regional)- Monmouth Regional didn’t win a game last season but Smith has gotten them off to a great start after a 26 pt., 6 rebs, and 4 assist performance in their 72-55 win over St. John Vianney. “La Smoove” knocked down 3 treys in victory.
Bryce Aiken (Pope John XXIII): Aiken put on show at the Hoop Group Tip Off Classic. “Capo” drilled in 24 points, and handed out 7 dimes while taking home MVP honors in his team’s loss to Roselle Catholic. Aiken’s stock is on the rise.
Tyus Battle (Gil St. Benards)- Battle had a good all around performance with 14 points and 14 caroms in his team’s loss to the Patrick School. The Hoop Group awarded Battle as his team’s MVP for the game. “Kid Mamba” should have some exciting moments this year.
