Welcome to Super 6 Plays, where we’ll be digging up and dissecting six of the best plays from across the nation with the help of our partners over at High School Cube. Gear up for the week ahead with a heavy dose of monster dunks and clutch threes every Monday.
6) Jalen Bruson’s dunk for Stevenson (Ill.) against Libertyville (Ill.) — The announcer’s dubbed it an “Oh my!” moment. We would tend to agree. Brunson is a stud.
5) Jake Reuter’s clutch three-pointer for Seton Catholic (Calif.) against Mater Dei (Calif.) — Jake Reuter has a stroke, and he’s not afraid to use it. This trey off the dribble against Mater Dei was nigh on flawless.
4) Roland Griffin’s alley-oop slam for West Aurora (Ill.) against Glenbard East (Ill.) — What’s the best way to punish an opponent for not capitalizing on a fast break? By flushing a nasty alley-oop slam on the subsequent fastbreak of your own.
3) Caleb Jones’ buzzer beater for Bethel Christian Academy (N.C.) against Woodington Middle School (N.C.) — Anyone up for some fun middle school shooting? Thought so. Caleb Jones’ stroked this deep three at the buzzer, then went off celebrating like a pro. He earned it.
2) Justin Botteri’s steal and slam for Cardinal Newman (Calif.) against San Martin — Two highlights in one! This is a solid anticipation steal from Botteri, and his finish makes up for what it lacks in Hollywood with plenty of decisiveness.
1) Bryce Couch’s self-put back for Roseville (Calif.) against Albany (Calif.) — This is why you always follow your shot, ladies and gentlemen. Couch’s intuitive reaction to a short-armed three led to a key bucket to help Roseville cut into Albany’s advantage at the 49th annual Red Brown Tournament.
