The game of the week was started with two young programs Legacy at Cheyenne. The game was nip-and-tuck from the beginning. Cheyenne has a very athletic player in 6’2 SG (c/o 2018) Kavon Williams. He demonstrated that he has the ability to score, but it will take much more than just him. Consistency from his teammates will be crucial moving forward in the season. Freshman 5’11 (c/o 2020) PG Keyshawn Hall will have to grow up fast they will need him to lead the team at that position. As the season moves forward he will adjust to the fast pace of the high school game.
Had a opportunity to see Canyon Springs and was very impressed with their (c/o 2017) 5’6 PG Chris Hawkins. He is a floor General, he runs the team with confidence and is a ball hawk defender not afraid to make things happen. His first game of the season he put up 25 points, they have some pieces to work with, but it will be left up to Coach Freddy Banks to make it all work.
I believe that the Legacy Longhorns started off the season with a very productive showing, going into a hostile environment and getting a good team win. Playing together is very important for this group,having team chemistry will be key for this team. This may sound funny to some, but the leader of this team is Coach Jack Tarango making sure that this group of young men know their roles. This will be the keys to their success.
The Legacy Tip Off Classic this past weekend gave us the opportunity to see some of the teams from around the Valley, let’s start with that feisty group from Coral Academy. This team doesn’t backdown from anybody. They gave Clark High School fits in the first half of their game, the deep shooting from their 6’3 SG (2017) senior Isaiah Spears is something special. He can light it up. Lol!!! One of the better freshman in the valley is 6’3 PG (c/o 2020) Isaac Spears. Don’t sleep on this young fella. He plays a very mature game for his age. He can get to the basket and has a nice pull up game. You will hear from him.
It would be disrespectful for me not to talk about this young man, what I seen at the Legacy Tip Off Classic from Mr.Troy Brown was special. Sat on the sideline with former UNLV player Trevor Diggs all he could say is: (THAT YOUNG FELLA IS SPECIAL) He demonstrates the will to win, you don’t come by players like that everyday. I quote Troy Brown from his twitter page, “Never wanted something so bad, but still continue to come up short every year.” He is a competitor. Competing young people is very important, never settle for just being an average player!! At the end of the day, Clark high had just a little bit more.
How about those Clark Chargers who came into the Legacy Tip Of Classic and took care of business. When I look at this team I think of the San Antonio Spurs, a brotherhood loving to work together. A very balanced team, everyone knowing their role to play. That is a very good formula for success. In the Championship game against Centennial, 6’5 WF (c/o 2019) Ian Alexander played big.Young fella knocked down big shots and played great on the defensive end. 6’5 PF (2019) Antwon Jackson used his physical presence and dominated the inside. Troy Brown Jr. might have been the best player on the floor, but Clark high was the best team in the building!!
There are a lot of good hoopers in the city,we look forward to covering as many players as possible from all divisions.. VEGAS ALL DAY!!! I THOUGHT YOU KNEW!! WE REP OUR CITY!!!
