Teach Me Classic 7th Grade Championship Top Performers
Lorenzo Washington Guard (NY Rens)- Washington came out shooting in the second half especially from three point range. He drained three straight triples to cut into the large lead. He showed good poise and accuracy when the game was on the line. He also stepped to the charity stripe and knocked down crucial free throws to seal the win.
Tyreek Morris Guard (NY Rens)- Morris won league MVP and I can see how. The kid is enormous talent and upside. He has good bounce, size and can play multiple positions. I like how he creates off the bounce and will knock down the open jumper. He passes the look test and is nowhere near his ceiling. This kid can go.
Marquis Dukes Guard (NY Dragons)- Dukes dominated this game in the first half. He put defenders on his hip and carried them to the bucket. He finished through contact and even showed the knack to drain the open shot. He definitely put his name on our radar and we will be keeping an eye out for this kid.
Keyshawn Jones Guard (NY Dragons)- Jones wan another guard the caught our eye. He has good size and appears confident when handling the rock. He uses strength to finish off plays but can also make good passing decisions with the rock. I also like his outside stroke.
Josh Hunter Guard (NY Dragons)- Hunter is the third guard in this three headed monster for the Dragons. He has a smooth approach and sees the floor well when he’s attacking. I like how he looked in transition and the way he delivered the rock. He can also score when needed.
