Simeon Guard Play Continues to Shine

Just like at Pontiac the three starting guards for Simeon brought toughness, defense, passing, and scoring.  Top uncommitted guard Jaylen Drane Jaylen Drane 6'2" | PG Simeon | 2022 State IL led the way with a monster 27 point outing.  He started early getting his offense going off the defensive end creating turnovers and going the other way for points.  Throughout the night he finished extremely well at the rim with acrobatic shots shielding the ball away from defenders.  Most of his points came at the rim or line except a pair of jumpers.  Continue to be impressed with how well he has dished the rock as a senior.  Sound passing in the half court to his shooters and rollers.  Avyion Morris Avyion Morris 5'9" | PG Simeon | 2022 State IL as always sets the tone on the defensive end.  So many intangibles here
