Boston City League basketball returned to action Friday night, as the teams embark on an eight-game schedule leading up to the city playoffs and championship in late February. This is the first in a series of articles that will highlight the top prospects and performers in the city. 

These are four of the best guards I have had a chance to see so far:

After an outstanding sophomore campaign, the shifty, explosive guard picked up right where he left off, pouring in 37 points Friday night in a 57-54 season-opening win over Brighton. When the two teams met again last night, Brighton did all they could defensively (box-and-one, traps, double teams, etc.) to slow him and pulled out a 58-51 victory, but he still carried English with 30 points. Mekhi was relentless in his attack, played and finished through a ton of contact, and lived at the foul line. I was also impressed with the elevation on his jumper, his easy bounce, the way he glides to the rim in transition, and his lateral quickness, with the ball and on defense.
