Flyin to the Hoop in Kettering, OH returns in January with some great teams from not just Ohio, but in the entire country. In order to cover everyone, I will be splitting the preview into the 3 sessions. Today I will look at the Sunday sessions.

 

Top Players

Andre Gordon (Sidney)- Super athletic guard that makes everyone around him better.

 

Justin Ahrens (Versailles)- Sharpshooter with great scoring potential; can easily drop 20 points in a game.

 

Alonzo Gaffney (Garfield Heights)- One of the top juniors in Ohio, plays very well at the rim.

 

Yahel Hill (Cleveland Heights)- Great guard with tremendous vision; finds ways to get his teammates the ball.

 

Brison Waller (Garfield Heights)- Very athletic wing for the Bulldogs; another great finisher at the rim.
