The 3rd Annual MLK Freedom Games Preview

18 Jan

The Horatio Williams Foundation once again this year has filled up a whole slate of great high school basketball action.  The Schedule goes as follows: 1:00 Warren Fitzgerald vs. Troy High, 1:45 Southeastern vs. Detroit Community, 3:30 Detroit Cass Tech vs. Walled Lake Western, 5:00 Frederick Douglass vs. Warren De La Salle, 6:30 Renaissance vs. Ann Arbor Huron, 8:30 Flint Beecher vs. Detroit Pershing.  Here are some games to I have circled.

Cass Tech vs. Walled Lake Western: Walled Lake Western has one of the most dominant centers in the state in Miroslav Jaksic.  Reports have shown that one of the schools interested in him is Duke.  And for Cass, I know they are a football school, but this year they have a good hoop squad.  The triumvirate of D’Andre Johnson, DeAngelo Stewart, and Kyle Steward may be the best in the state.

Frederick Douglass vs. Warren De La Salle: The Purple Pilots have one of the best juniors in the state in A.J. Turner, who previously picked up an Iowa State offer a few weeks ago.  Douglass on the other hand has a very good junior combo guard as well in Darrell Davis.  Look for this game to be a dog fight.

Flint Beecher vs. Detroit Pershing: The defending Class C champions Beecher take on perennial Class A power Pershing, in what should be a great game.  Beecher is led by Iowa State signee Monte Morris, a two time Class C player of the year, and will be matched up against Oakland bound point guard Kahlil Felder of Pershing.  If Monte’s supporting cast can contain the likes of Martez Walker and Dwayne Embry, Beecher has a chance to take a win back to BucTown.
