The joint will be jumpin’ this weekend as the 2019 Hawks-Naismith Holiday Classic showcases some of the elite ballplayers (and programs) in the State of Georgia. McEachern takes on must-see TV Grayson Saturday at 7:15pm (SUVtv is carrying the games live stream). #1(MaxPreps) McEachern is riding an impressive winning streak dating back to last season. 2020 6’2 PG Sharife Cooper (Auburn) is special with the rock, showing the ability to score buckets at will.
#3 Grayson (9-1), stacked from top to bottom with talent, is a team loaded with high D1 hoop prospects. 6’4 PG and South Florida pledge 2020 Caleb Murphy is a serious problem. Plays above the rim, drops dimes on a regular while showing leadership abilities as an extension of his coach. This ballclub is worth the price of admission.
Host Norcross (8-0, ranked #10 in the State of GA per MaxPreps) takes on Tucker in the nightcap at 8:45pm. Tucker is undefeated at 12-0 with nine of those wins coming during region play. If they (Norcross student body) come out in numbers, look for the 6th man home crowd to be enough of an ‘X-factor’, getting Norcross and Head Coach Jesse McMillan over the hump.
A full slate of games for you hoop junkies. 😉
