PM North Showcase 17U Wins over Next Generation with Monster Effort from Wing

The story of the opening game on Saturday was the play of Hibbing (MN) 2022 6’2” shooting guard Tre Holmes.  He absolutely went off in PM North Showcase’s 82-77 win.  The two guard did just about whatever he wanted draining a handful of threes with feathery touch and always seemed in rhythm whether shooting off the catch or bounce. Also mixed in some creative transition buckets.  Prospect that D2s should really look into him.  He had 29 points in the win.  Kevon Powell was the other go to player for their squad.  The unsigned 5’11” point guard is a scrappy guard that handles it well, gets after it on D, and rebounds surprisingly well for his position.  Next Generation Blue out of Illinois was led by Homewood Flossmoor 6’4” shooting guard Chakaris London.  Athletic slashing wing with length that has a projectable game showing he could get to the rim
