In sports the term “cookin” is reserved for a player who goes on a scoring spree or gets hot during a game and makes big plays on the offensive end.
This week’s “Chef of the Week” award goes to Wings Elite (Ark.) guard Malik Monk for his efficient 40-point outing in a win over Team Penny (Tenn.) at the Nike Peach Jam recently.
Monk went 14 of 20 from the field and 6 of 10 from the arc in the win.
Earlier this AAU season, Monk, a rising junior who is ranked No. 4 in the ESPN 60, scored 59 points in a game.
Consistency, the mark of a true chef.
POSTER OF THE WEEK
This week’s Poster of the Week winner is Georgia Renegades guard Jordan Harris for the vicious put-back slam he pulled off at the Nike Elite Youth Invitational recently.
When Harris’ teammate put up a floater, Harris darted from the baseline to the paint and just as the ball popped up off the rim he caught it at the top of his ascension, over an opposing player and his teammate, and threw down a strong one hander.
Check out the video because Harris looks to be a foot above the rim on the jump.
OH NO THEY DIDN’T!
This award is reserved for the player who turned in a mind-boggling performance or play that left the crowd in a state of shock and amazement.
This week’s “Oh No They Didn’t” winner is only 5 years old; now before you roll your eyes you should know that this kindergartener can probably kick your butt. Tread lightly.
Nijee “The Future” Witcher is a boxing phenom who even Shaq tweeted “Will be a champion.”
Check out the video below and you’ll be on the Witcher bandwagon in no time.
Displaying the skills of a boxing champion at just 5 years old?
Oh yes he did.
