We have seen Peoria Manual and Springfield Lanphier play quite a few times over the last few years at Thanksgiving time.  This is however the first matchup at the Kevin Brown Memorial Tournament of Champions in Washington, Illinois.  Both teams mirror each other with tons of quality guards and wanting to push in the open floor.  Peoria Manual won this one 63-53.  Take a look at our 5 Takeaways: Peoria Manual vs Springfield Lanphier.


Pee Wee Brown is a Winner

Senior shooting guard Pee Wee Brown proved it last March taking his team to state.  He did it again all summer carrying his Peoria Area Elite squad into the #1 overall seed in the 17U Hard Work Region division of the PrepHoops Circuit.  The 2020 wing is off to another great start this year.  Brown is a tough as nails kid that operates from the mid-range in.  Knocks down 15 footers with regularity.  So aggressive attacking the cup for difficult layups.  Plays with such tenacity.  D2s and JUCO’s should be on him heavily!  Went for 19 points.
