Chase Henderson / 5’10” / SG / Birdville / 222
Henderson definitely looks like a freshman on the court. However he doesn’t play like one, the young shooter moves very well without the ball and got to his spots to make himself available for his teammates to find him behind the arc for multiple three point baskets.
Finished with 9 points off of three, three pointers.
Sam Martin / 5’11” / PG / Burleson / 2019
Martin is a strong playmaking guard that creates well for others with the ball in his hands. Sam has a tight handle which helps him separate space to get his shot off.
