TOC Classic Night Session Top Performers
Jelani Hamilton, Cumberland Christian (Pitcured)
We have talked about Hamilton a lot over the first few weeks of the season as he is one of the state's top performers and stock risers. He continued his good play at TOC, finishing with 33 points and doing a little bit of everything. He hit shots from three, got to the rim, rebounded on both ends, and defended well. With his size and versatility, he's a prospect that all Power 5 programs will want to have eyes on. Alabama recently offered and Georgia Tech offered after the game today.
KJ Greene, Pace Academy
The sophomore floor general for the Knights did everything you love to see from a young guard in this one. He has great pace, understands how to change speeds, and made some good decisions with the ball. He has the ability to make reads, find teammates, and create for himself. He shot the ball very well from three in this one and he showed the ability to hit jumpers off the dribble as well.
Jordan Brown, Pebblebrook
A few people in the crowd were oohing and ahhing over some of the plays that Brown made in a win over Milton. He's very talented in all aspects on the offensive end. He plays off of two feet and scores the ball from every level. Tonight he found a ton of offense in the midrange and showed how good of a jump shooter he really is. He also proved that his passing ability is very underrated.
Braden Sparks, McEachern
Sparks put on a show in a big win over Wheeler. He knocked down shot after shot from the perimeter, pouring in 20 points in the first half and 27 for the game. He's very tough on both ends of the floor and can play both on and off the ball. He's been good both times that our staff has seen him and proven he is one of the better perimeter shooters among unsigned seniors in the Peach.
Mike Jacobs, McEachern
The other half of the Indians backcourt, Jacobs created a lot of offense in the win over Wheeler. He keeps the ball on a string and is very good getting penetration off the bounce. He makes great reads with the ball in his hands and is very reliable as a decision maker. What really stood out was his ability to create openings and finish around the rim with both hands. He made some very high level finishes tonight.
