stepped up to the competition and led his Buford team to an extremely impressive win over Grovetown. He had a great showing on all accounts, impacting the game on both ends and hitting some big shots to extend the lead. Burnett finished the game with 19 points including 4 three-pointers and shot a high percentage from the field. He’s got a mature game to pair with a college-ready body. His college interest has recently picked up and rightfully so.
‘s well-versed offensive skillset was on full display Tuesday as he was able to get to his spots and consistently hit tough shots. Together, he and provided a nice 1-2 scoring punch for Milton, combining for 45 points on the night. Dixon was expecially lethal when pushing the pace in transition and scored a handful of layups that way. Dixon’s all-around offensive game proved tough to stop for North Gwinnett and ultimately led them to a nice early-season win.
The first game of the day came with a lot of intrigue as Denmark took Mt. Vernon to OT and came away with the win. Despite, finishing with only 8 points,had a major impact on the final result of the game. He had to finish with 7 or 8 blocks and did a tremendous job of protecting the rim. He was also huge on the glass and battled inside with big all game. McFarlande is a very attractive prospect in my opinion because of his size and overall impact. He remains one of the best available 2023 bigs.
While North Gwinnett struggled to get things clicking against Milton,was a bright spot for them and has been since his arrival this summer. Jones is a vital addition to an already solid core for North Gwinnett and gives them another capable guard which is exactly what they needed. Jones is a smooth ball-handler that seems to glide past defenders on his way to the hoop. He can initiate instant offense whether that be taking the ball to the bucket, hitting a 3 off the dribble, or collapsing the defense to setup an open shooter. is an interesting addition to Georgia’s 2024 class that I will certainly keep my eye on.
Despite a terrible first-half from Mt. Vernon, they were able to climb back into the game in the second half largely because of. He finished the game with 14 points, all coming in the second half. Shegog was very effective working out of the high post and it seems like that may be the best spot for him in this offense. Around the basket, Shegog uses his strength to his advantage to score through contact or over smaller defenders. He’s also a solid defender and has a ton of potential to grow into something special on the defensive end. It’ll be interesting to whether Shegog returns to Brad Beal Elite this spring or if he opts for an Atlanta-based program.
