Isaiah Briscoe (Playaz)
Basketball Spotlight Alums were in the building for the Nike Peach Jam on ESPN as the powerhouse Playaz aka “The Yankees” brought the championship back to New Jersey. Here’s what we thought after we watched the games on the tube.
Isaiah Briscoe Guard (Playaz)- Briscoe seemed to be on a mission all season and reached pay dirt by leading his boys to the crown. He dictated the pace and did whatever he wanted on the floor. During the semifinals he danced along the baseline while hurting the back of Scan's zone. In the finals he really turned up and showed all the facets of his game. He carried defenders to the rack, scored the pill and set up teammates. He also has the amazing instinct of drawing fouls on defenders. I also hit the glass to the tune of 12 caroms. He ended the game close to the triple double with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 7 dimes. He might not be listed as the top prospect in the country but he definitely was by far the best player in America this summer hands down.
Note: There were other top performers in this event but he just highlighted the players that played in the Basketball Spotlight events.
