WHBH Gold came to Hoopseen’s Best of the South (B.O.T.S.) with a mission. They wanted to prove their power against shoe-deal teams and assert dominance over the entire 16u division.
The weekend was all roses until the final game Saturday night. Facing a technical and hot-shooting PSB Elite-Hairston the WHBH Gold team lost its passion. Their lost their fire. Whether it was the third game in the day that got them or something deeper the game lacked energy and hunger.
Guard play lost its crispness. Still acclimating to the program Bolivar Central guard Jeff Norment did help, but the overall guard play lacked concise, purposeful ball-handling.
Jacobi Wood was evaluated by Lipscomb and Chattanooga and Tennessee State for sure. There might have been a couple other teams to scoot by his games. Chattanooga Assistant Coach Walter Offutt and Lipscomb Assistant Coach Sean Rutigliano.
Harry Lackey played well. He did not gain an offer though. DeArre McDonald and several other WHBH players enjoyed a Tennessee State Assistant coach evaluation.
Lee University spent a couple games watching the entire team.
WHBH played poorly on the offensive glass despite their athleticism. DeArre didn’t get to the glass like he can. J’Quan Ewing frustrated Coach Primm enough to earn extra bench time.
The team below is the very modest roster of the team that defeated WHBH Gold to end their B.O.T.S. dreams.
