Deion Holmes' 60-point outing highlights this week's awards



Chef of the Week

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 Chesnee (Chesnee, S.C.) shooting guard Deion Holmes for dropping, count ’em, 60 points in a, 106-77, win against Liberty (S.C.) last week.

Holmes, a USC-Upstate signee, added 17 rebounds in the win.

True chef-like behavior.

Poster of the Week

This week’s Poster of the Week winner is Rutherford B. Hayes (Delaware, Ohio) wing Khalil Iverson for the poster he created in a 69-63 double overtime win over New Albany (New Albany, Ohio).

First, Iverson swatted a New Albany player’s shot then chased the ball down as it ricocheted off the backboard.

Iverson sped down the floor and rose up for the one hander over another Albany defender who obviously shouldn’t have jumped.

Take a look.

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 St. Francis (Alpharetta, Ga.) point guard Kobi Jordan-Simmons and his teammates for hitting “the drop” during the game in a 48-23 win over Mount Pisgah (Johns Creek, Ga.) last week.

Yes, they actually started dancing during regulation.

They had to do something to keep the game live; Mount Pisgah decided to hold the ball to keep the score low and Simmons and crew got a bit bored.

That’s when they broke out in the popular dance, which spectators decided to join in on.

Oh yes they did.
