Day two of the 2018 Jerry Peters Memphis Summer Classic was probably better than day one. More and more players from each school are starting to emerge in the forefront as elite prospects for college basketball programs and important pieces to their high school team’s success for the 2018-19 season.
Like Thursday night, there were only a selective group of players that were chosen as the best on the court. After Friday’s action, it was hard to pick just four players, so here’s a longer list of the talent that stood out from day two at Memphis University School:
There were four guys who deserved some praise even though their stat line wasn’t as impressive as the four studs above. East sophomore combo guard Jalen Brown had a solid outing against the Panthers, putting up 14 points and pulling down two rebounds. The Mustangs’ senior guard Antonio Thomas provided 14 points, five rebounds, and two assists. Before the short-lived brawl with Jones, Applewhite finished with 11 points, four rebounds, and two assists for the Lynx.
White Station’s sophomore forward Willie Foreman added nine points, six rebounds, and four assists in a 55-51 loss to Covington. He’s the biggest player in the starting five for the Spartans, standing at 6-4, and he’s not done growing.
