2018 5 County Jr High Tournament

From Northeast MS CC

img_2629Notes:

Zane Tipler (’23 PG Ripley): Little Tipler stepped up as a 7th grader and played hard for the 8th grade team. Zane is one to keep an eye on for the next several years when he hits the high school level.

Booneville: I know this is way premature saying this but Michael Smith needs to go ahead and book rooms in Jackson the next four years. I bet they even get a discount on rings if he orders in a higher quantity also, like 4 years worth. That’s a lot of talk but Booneville is about to be good. You heard it here first.

LJ Shumpert (’22 PG Booneville): I’m guessing 5-11 or so, solid and strong body. He has some ups and can play around the rim. He is a great and patient facilitator that will be a high level leader down the road. Very effective ball-handler. Has the look of he’s been there and done that so you can’t rattle him.

Caleb Gaston (’22 G Booneville): 6-3ish. Handles the ball well for his size. He has a tough all-around game. He rebounds, defends and can play any position on the court. He has potential to be a nationally ranked player over time. He reminds me of Trey Smith of Petal or Austin Crowley of West Point (Sunrise Christian). He could also grow to be a 6-5 to 6-7 guard. Looks as if he gets bored on the court at times with the lack of competition.

Mack Shinault (’22 F/C Booneville): 6-5ish. Effective on the defensive end. High level rebounder and can score with his back to the basket or facing the paint. 6-8 potential in the long run.

Josh Dukes (’22 SG Booneville): 6-2ish. Plays with composure and skill. High level thinker on the court. Smart rebounder. He also has that been there look. He shoots at a high level from long-range. Could end up being a 6-5 to 6-7 shooter.

Corinth: Corinth had a couple guards that will make a name for themselves down the road.

Andre Adams (’22 G/F Corinth): Adams had the tough task of going up against Booneville. He is a long and lanky wing that will develop over time.

2018 5 County Jr High Tournament

From Northeast MS CC

Notes:

East Union: East Union had a great team effort during the tournament and has some nice pieces coming up.

Carson Rowland (’22 PG Pine Grove): Two very strong performances by Rowland over the 5 County Tournament. He showed court vision way beyond his years in his first game with the accurate passing to go with it. He has well above average ball handling and is on track to becoming an elite level point. In his second game of the tournament against New Albany, he gave them everything they wanted and more. He scored with ease on the drive and rebounded at a high level on the offensive end. He scored on several offensive boards and added the and 1’s. Pine Grove has a stud coming up to watch for.

New Albany: New Albany has a very tough team to content with. They have a mixture of size and speed that will allow them to be a contender down the road.

The 27th Annual New Albany Kiwanis

Hot Bed Classic

New Albany MS

New Albany, MS

img_3906-2

The Hot Bed Classic is one of the things that got me hooked on high school basketball 20 plus years ago. It’s the original premium event in the state that every fan should visit at least once in their life. David Goode put together another great show for the fans and we can’t wait to see what he has on tap for next year. It starts early, it ends late and it’s action packed all day long.

  1. College Coaches seating area. Check. Several chair seats along the baseline were in place for the college coaches in attendance.
  2. Media working area. Check. Stats were provided by Blake Long and his Northeast MS CC staff. Blake is the real MVP of these events with his quality stats. A media area was in place around Blake with easy access to the stats.
  3. Hospitality room. Check. The hospitality room was stocked multiple times during the day the keep it fresh and rolling.
  4. Program with rosters. Check. Your purchase of a program also gave you a chance to shoot for $100. One fan walked away with $300 in earnings on the day. His name will be protected in case he doesn’t let his wife know. He was also sitting by himself for most of the day until he started winning and his group of friends started growing. Lol
  5. Access to players. Check. Any players media needed would be quickly hustled to a media room right after the games for pictures and questions.
  6. Game MVP’S. Check. A member from both teams were awarded with MVP honors.
  7. Enjoyment factor for the fans. Check. You have to enjoy the hot and steamy NE MS basketball environment to get it. It might not be the most comfortable due to the amount of people in the gym but it brings back tons of great memories for me. There’s not a spot in that gym that I can go where I don’t have crazy and fond memories. The concession stand is also the bomb for fans wanting to stay all day. They even have people walking around with drinks and items in case you don’t want to miss any action. Top notch.

#105 MS South Pontotoc Cougars 17-6 (3A Pontotoc, MS) 85

#240 MS Myrtle Hawks 10-16 (1A Myrtle, MS) 50

Myrtle suffered a blow early when senior Josh Goolsby (6-0 ’18 G Myrtle 1 reb) rolled his ankle and couldn’t return. The college prospect only recorded 3:27 of playing time in the contest. Stepping up in his absence was some younger players. A.I. Nugent (’21 G Myrtle 9 pts 11 reb 2 ast) earned MVP honors while Jaden Taylor (’22 G Myrtle 9 pts 3-5 fg 3 3’s 4 reb) gave a big punch coming off the bench but it wasn’t enough to offset South Pontotoc. Maleik Below (6-6 ’18 F South Pontotoc 22 pts 2 3’s 18 reb, 11 in 2nd half, 4 ast 4 blk 4 st) had a very impressive showing. He looked trim and athletic and he ran the floor very well. Eddie Ivy (5-6 ’19 PG South Pontotoc 13 pts 5-9 fg 4 reb 10 ast) controlled the game well and came away with a double-double. Myrtle has some nice young talent and will be a fun team to watch down the road. South Pontotoc has a good team ready for 3A playoffs. They have 2 good size post players, 2 shooters and a really good guard to direct them.

#58 MS Ingomar Falcons  21-6 (2A New Albany, MS) 67

#65 MS Newton County Cougars 14-7 (4A Decatur, MS) 56

Both teams enjoyed double digit leads during the contest but Ingomar ended up on top at the end. Jay Pickens (6-3 ’18 G Ingomar 33 pts 5 3’s 8-10 ft 3 reb 2 ast) had a big game to help push Ingomar to the win. Newton County had a solid team effort in the loss. Jaylin Nicholson (6-2 ’18 G Newton County/East Central CC 11 pts 3 reb) received the MVP award. Peyton Reeves (6-5 ’18 G/F Newton County 26 ACT 13 pts 9 reb 4 ast 4 st) had a very solid performance showing that he will be a great option for the next level. NAIA’s and D3’s need to get a look at him soon. Chris Mulford (6-7 ’18 F/C Newton County 11 pts 1 3’s 8 reb 2 ast 3 blk) also looked impressive by showing he can stretch the floor and be a good option for the next level. Ingomar and Newton County both have solid teams and will be a presence in the playoffs.

#14 MS Saltillo Tigers 21-2 (5A Saltillo, MS) 42

A great game from the tip to the finish. Both teams played very hard and strong on the defensive ends. I had this game going in as a must watch game. Garrett Golday (6-5 ’18 F Arlington/Tenn Tech 21 pts, 13 in the 2nd half, 9-13 fg 7 reb 2 ast 3 blk) did what he does best and put up a strong game in the win. Calvin “Smurf” Harris (6-2 ’19 F Saltillo 14 pts 5 reb) took home MVP honors in the loss. Two other players looking good for the Tigers were seniors Isaiah Hardy (6-1 ’18 SG Saltillo 10 pts 4 reb 5 ast) and Kaleb “Trell” Terrell (5-10 ’18 G Saltillo 8 pts 2 st).

Callaway opened up a big lead early and never looked back. Daeshun Ruffin (5-9 ’21 PG Callaway 21 pts 3 3’s 4 reb 7 ast 3 st) paced the Chargers for MVP honors. Another Charger that looked extremely well o the court was Deonte Spencer (6-7 ’18 F Callaway 16 pts 4-6 3’s 3 reb). Spencer ran the floor well and stretched it on the offensive end by shooting the long ball efficiently. Jamarcus Jones (6-6 ’18 F/C North Panola/Northeast MS CC 16 pts 8-12 ft 4 reb 2 ast 2 st) was the lone bright spot for the Cougars bringing home the MVP award to Sardis.

#8 AL Plainview Bears 25-2 (3A Rainsville, AL) 88

#27 MS Houlka Wildcats 20-5 (1A Houlka, MS) 77

The game of the day by far. It was my pleasure of being able to watch Plainview. I have been told that they are a work of art and everything I’ve been told was true. Every team in Mississippi needs to watch them play and learn from them. Ma’Darius “MayDay” Hobson (6-3 ’18 G/F Houlka 34 pts 13-21 ft 2 ‘3s 6-7 ft 10 reb 4 ast) did everything he possibly could to keep Houlka close but it wasn’t enough. MayDay added more hardware to the trophy case with the MVP award. Jefferey Armstrong (’18 G Plainview 25 pts 10-15 fg 2 3’s 9 reb 9 ast 5 st) had a very strong game earning MVP honors for the very talented Plainview team.
