The first day of the tournament at Madison Prep (aka The Rumble on the River) was eventful to say the least. The sixteen school field had a number of strong teams from the top to the bottom of the bracket. A number a players showed that they are high caliber performers on the prep scene. I will review some of the headliners from the day that was.

Brandon Harton, Jr. / 6'4" / 2021 / Jehovah-Jireh

In the opening game of the day, the Warriors of Jehovah-Jireh defeated Crowley by four.  During the victory, Harton displayed flashes of why he was named Most Outstanding Player during their state championship last season.  On the defensive end, Harton was the anchor in the lane and blocked a couple of key shots when the game was tight.  Offensively, he was consistent in each quarter.  His drives and assists from the high post were keys to getting to the foul line or producing Warrior baskets.  When the game needed closing, Harton stepped to the line and sealed the game.  His 21 points were scored in a variety of ways and showed the versatility in his game.  

Jalen Cook / 6'0" / 2020 / Walker
