Bryant got to the left-side of the basket all game long and finished with 21 points for the Wolverines. Bryant did all of his scoring either on the free throw line (11-12) or at the rim. Bryant didn’t look to shoot the ball on the perimeter at all and play off the ball the whole game.
Best Offensive Performance : Tyjhai Calvin (2020) East Clarendon HS (Turbeville)
Calvin is the real deal at the point guard spot. Calvin plays with such a great demeanor on the floor with a pass first attitude Calvin a football (RB/DB). Calvin 5’11 (185) is a strong built kid with great body control. Calvin doesn’t look to force anything won the floor. Calvin finished with 12 points.
Duo in the Backcourt : Jalen Bryant (2020) and Tyjhai Calvin (2020) East Clarendon HS
Bryant and Calvin can take the Wolverines far in the playoffs. This duo and team really share the ball well and play unselfish on the floor.
Best College Prospect : Shaquille Johnson (2018) Green Sea Floyds
Johnson oh boy just didn’t have it tonight for the Trojans. Johnson has a lot of talent and its frustrating at times to see a kid not use it the way they should. Johnson finished with 19 points on 5-19 from the floor with the game kind of out of reach all night long. Johnson will need to entertain junior colleges for next season. Johnson also plays football for the Trojans.
Down the stretch :
The Wolverines finish the regular season tomorrow vs Hannah-Pamplico at home before starting the playoffs next week. Don’t let the Wolverines 9-10 overall record fool you down the stretch.
The Trojans finish the year with Lake View HS. These two schools will not qualify for the playoffs. Zack Dixon finished the night with 9 points for the Trojans.
