East  Coast Index   March 25th

The event on the 25th had a furious pace combined with athleticism that was off the charts! Jyheim Spencer of Seaport, Delaware brought the house down when he dunked over two players on the break. He could also handle and shoot for his size. I also liked Darnell Ransom out of Eastern University Academy in Philadelphia.   Who shot it well off the catch and off the bounce. I thought  Michael Marinchak out of state power Ligonier Valley had a nice showing as well as a great open court finisher. Here are my “Top 25” for the event. I look forward to seeing you on June 3rd!
