Briarwood has one of the most underrated duos in the state. Hayden Lamey and Chance Beard provide the Lions with a great 1-2 punch. This high academic duo is also an inside/out combo. Lamey and Beard are poised to have big senior seasons, and the Lions are going to shock some people this season. Here is a breakdown of the duo.

Hayden Lamey- 6'3 guard who can score from all 3 levels. Underrated athlete. Very tight shooting mechanics. Plays well without the basketball. Can get into his shots quickly. Excellent spot up shooter. Has improved as a playmaker. Improved ability off the bounce. Can defend all 3 perimeter spots. Good perimeter rebounder.

Defending Lamey- Play him honest and straight up. Run him off the 3 point line. Do not allow him to shoot in rhythm. Make him put the ball on the floor and become a playmaker. Do not lose contact with him on screens.

Chance Beard- Athletic forward. Two way player. High motor. Hits the glass extremely hard. Finishes through contact. Can finish above the rim. Can stretch the floor and hit corner 3s. Very good post and help side defender. Active hands defensively. Challenges shots at the rim. 

Defending Beard- Play him
