Conference Preview

The Prep Hoops Oklahoma team traveled to Norman High School Thursday evening to take on yet another scrimmage. Norman, Mount Saint Mary, and Harrah were the teams in action. Although the season is a few weeks away teams are starting to show their hand a bit more in the first week of scrimmages. All teams performed well and some have made leaps of improvement.

Mount Saint Mary is maybe the team with the most upside. They have a solid point guard in Stephon Hall of the 2018 class and dynamic forward in Tony Elix of the 2017 class. With that personnel one could assume that the supporting cast stands arounds and watches Elix and Hall run the pick and roll, but that couldn't be any further from the truth.

On any given possession by the Rockets, at least four players have the ball at some point before a shot is hoisted. This motion offense takes the pressure off of Hall and Elix to provide all of the scoring, if their role players can knock down shots.

The Rockets lack in size and that shows on the defensive end.  They can look to counter with multiple zone defense
