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.

Metro Detroit/Saginaw Valley League Challenge

14 Dec

Tomorrow December 14, I will be attending my first high school basketball games of the season at West Bloomfield High School for the Metro Detroit/ Saginaw Valley League Challenge.  Here is the schedule for the day:

12:30pm-W. Bloomfield vs. Flint Northern; 2pm-Gibraltar Carleton vs. Saginaw Buena Vista; 3:30pm-Ypsilanti vs. North Farmington; 5pm-Taylor Truman vs. Ann Arbor Huron; 6:30pm-Detroit King vs. Saginaw Arthur Hill; 8pm-Saginaw vs. Detroit Southeastern

A couple games that catch my eye are the King vs. Saginaw Arthur Hill game.  The Hill has one of the top C/O 2015 guards in Eric Davis.  To complement Davis, Jalen Adams will provide highlights galore in this game.  The second game that caught my eye is the North Farmington vs. Ypsilanti.  Another top 2015 player, 6-6 Jeron Rogers will be in action and could very well put on a show.

This will be a great day of hoops in the Metro Detroit Area.  The defending Class A champs will be in attendance, Saginaw, as well as some other up and coming teams, should be a talent rich challenge.

Players to watch: Flint Northern’s Amari Ivory. Arthur Hill’s Eric Davis and Jalen Adams. Buena Vista’s Vonta Brookins, Armondi Rogers and Carl Moore, Saginaw’s Julian Anderson, Keyon Addison, Jerry Smith and Markell Bradshaw.  Truman’s Aaron Foster-Smith, Anthony Wartley-Fritz, Devin Goodwill, Devian Newbill.
