Clarksdale Invitational

Clarksdale Invitational

Clarksdale Gym: this was my first time to go to an event in the Clarksdale High gym and it was a gym that had character. I enjoyed meeting the coaches and the hospitality from Coach Hill was very good. It is also fun to be able to put faces with names of members of the Scout board.

West Tallahatchie

Dan Locke IV 6-4 Jr F: 17 pts, 3 3’s, 2-2 ft; really a stretch 4; showed long range ability and hit both free throws in the 4th qtr

Malik Bailey 6-1 Sr G: 11 pts; had to sit part of the game due to injury; defensive force and complete hustle when he was on the floor; show shooting range as well

West Tallahatchie: this team is good; perfect fit of players; Tyler Berryhill (5-9 Jr G) and Devunta Houston (5-7 Sr Pg) are a good combo of floor generals and D’Andre Houston (6-1 Sr F) is a great garbage player; talented team that will make a run

Coahoma County

Keion Crosby 6-4 So G/F: great basketball body; long and lanky

Clarksdale

Dykelius Grandberry 5-7 Jr PG: 24 pts, 4 3’s, 6-9 ft; Pooh Bear; sees the court very well; fast, fast, and more fast; he can create and get any shot he wants
