Big men made their presence felt at NEO Youth Elite Christmas Tournament Dec. 27-29 at Garfield Heights; The three-day tournament featured some of the best teams and players in Northeast Ohio.
Here is a list of the bigs who stuck out to me.
Josh Irwin (2021), West Geauga
The 6-6 sophomore was all over the floor as he scored 17 points and grabbed seven rebounds in his team’s loss to Wadsworth.
The loss dropped Irwin’s team’s record to 1-8, although they’ve suffered close losses in five of those defeats.
Irwin and likes to shoot the ball from distance so he could project as a Stretch 3 or 4. He rebounds well and plays with a little chip. Talks a lot on defense.
Jack Simmons, (2019) Wadsworth
