Boy's Basketball Shootout
October 15, 2017
Spooky Nook Sports, Manheim, PA


The road to the Cream of the Crop event is now complete! These players have received the Automatic invite to register for this one of a kind event (on Nov. 5th @ Spooky Nook)! I thought Andrew Kelly out of Malvern Prep was a great stretch 4 player. At the 4-5 position Noah Briggs out of Nazareth in the Allentown area did not disappoint with his stat stuffing. At the guard position Mr. Rodriguez out of Albany, NY went right up and down the court with the ball all day. Desean Jones out of Paterson, MD was a crafty combo guard who shot it well and got to the cup! Here are the rest of my Cream of the Crop
