North Crowley Panthers (85) – Fort Worth Dunbar Wildcats (63)
In the second game of the Cowtown Tip-Off, the UIL preseason 6A #9 North Crowley Panthers took on the the preseason 4A Fort Worth Dunbar Wildcats. This game was also a very sloppy one and it seemed as if it was going to be a close one after a competitive first quarter. But, the Panthers took control and had the Wildcats number throughout the rest of the game. Here are the prospects who shined in the blowout, including two hidden gems!
Top Performers: Panthers
Isaiah finished everything in the paint. He came into the game looking to attack, attack, and attack. Crawford made it look easy when getting to the basket and scoring. The Panthers star forward scored well in the open floor. The unsigned senior finished with a tied game-high 23 points and 6 rebounds.
Jacari also scored big for North Crowley tonight. He connected on three attempts from deep and converted on multiple attempts from the free throw line. The hidden gem was truly locked in and his performance offensively was impressive. He will be a player to look out for this season. Jacari finished with 18 points in the blowout victory.
Top Performers: Wildcats
The go-to guy for the Wildcats has the green light to do what he pleases offensively and he took full advantage. Keys impressed the crowd with his ability to make shots from the midrange and outside off the bounce. He knocked down three attempts from deep and was confident in his good outside looks. The unsigned senior also did what he does best, which is elevating for chase down blocks, playing the passing lanes, and exploding above defenders to finish around them at the basket. Keys was the one bright spot for Dunbar in the loss finishing with a tied game high of 23 points.
Tim Hartman was another hidden gem I spotted tonight. He impressed me with his ability to run the floor to get where he needs to be offensively and defensively. The best aspect of his game is his passion to protect the rim at all costs. He contests shots, alters shots, and tries to block everything at the rim. Timothy is still an extremely raw basketball player. He must improve his timing when attempting to swat shots. Offensively, he must continue to work on his overall game. He has a lengthy body but needs to keep progressing to turn his upside into production.
