Hoops City Films is bringing us The Mitten Classic! The game will take place on May 14 at 7:30PM at Bradford Academy High School. There will also be a Slam Dunk Contest that is sure to entertain. We’ll look at the lineups and a prediction for the game.
Geeter can and will influence every part of the game.
Jihad is a matchup nightmare.
Roper is a premier guard heading to Northwestern.
Smythe is one of the most improved players in the state.
Womack is an aggressive combo guard that can score from multiple levels.
Parker is an electric shooter.
Smith is as steady as they come and a true leader.
Rubio is an amazing all around athlete that has next level skills in multiple sports.
Menifield Jr. is as shifty as they come. His performance in the state title game was legendary.
Manciel had a statement season, proving that he’s an elite perimeter player.
Blakely is a true weapon on the wing.
Lewis could be one of the toughest perimeter defenders in the midwest.
Randle has a huge upside with his post D and rapidly developing perimeter game.
Nunn makes his return to Michigan basketball to show off his elite athleticism to fans that have missed it.
Lobsinger is as consistent of a high level performer as there is.
Erickson can flat out shoot the lights out.
Wheeler also makes his return to play in front of fans here in Michigan. He’s a waterbug type of lead guard that can play at a very fast pace.
Akins is a high level prospect on a national scale. Michigan State fans are eagerly anticipating his arrival.
Randall is a bouncy athlete that makes hustle plays.
Soper led his high school team to a storybook type season.
Holder proved that his name belongs with the best point guards in the state.
Hughes is a versatile player that creates issues for defenders or any size.
Carson is an elite post prospect that will play physical and can be effective off the high post.
Obviously both of these rosters are supremely talented. To make my prediction, I’m going to go back to the Prep Hoops Michigan Top 250 where we sawJr. and team up and go undefeated on the day. They were unstoppable together. Now add elite players like , shooters like , and big time high basketball IQ guys like , and that sounds like a W.
