LBI Michigan Mega Scrimmage Recap: Stars and Unsungs
By Imanni Wright



4/28/17; Hype Athletics and Michigan HS Basketball presented the Unsigned Senior Showcase. This event showed off some talented unsigned players still available.
 
 
 
The boys side was highlighted by fast and athletic guard play. There were players strong off the pick and roll, shooters from the corner, slashers that created open space, and floor leaders. There was a player who showed up an hour early to get in a detailed warm-up. There were kids cheering for each other despite the competitive nature of the event.

The girls side was highlighted by ball handling guards, jump shooting CG's and wings, as well as a battle in the post. There was a girl that showed high level post moves. There were kids hitting threes. There was a player who dominated the left side of the court. There were young ladies showing they could go off the dribble on either hand.

Both the girls and the boys sent a message to all onlookers. They hustled, hit the floor, and supported each other. College coaches would be lucky to have many of these kids, not just for their skill on the court, but for the classy respectable kids that they are.

Coaches: Please DM for a rundown of some players that may fit your programs needs/wants.
