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 Wesleyan Christian Academy (High Point, N.C.) forward Harry Giles III for managing his fifth-consecutive double-double (13 points and 16 rebounds) to lead Team USA past Croatia, 79-71, in overtime of the FIBA U19 World Championship Sunday in Greece.
Consistent dominance, the mark of a true chef.
Poster of the Week
This week’s Poster of the Week winner is Utah Prospects guard Frank Jackson for the strong one-hander he threw down over a defender at the NBPA Top 100 Camp.
Jackson cut backdoor, took a precise pass from his teammate and rose over a defender for the vicious dunk.
Jackson seemed to go through the defender’s body on the poster.
This one is a must-see.
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 Georgia Stars center Udoka Azubuike for nearly bringing the basketball goal down on a ferocious dunk at the NBPA Top 100 Camp.
Yes, Azubuike, went all “Shaq” on the poor goal and had it, literally, rocking after the put-back slam.
The best part?
After the mind-boggling dunk, Azubuike gave a brief intimidating stare toward the baseline and trotted back down the floor.
Oh yes he did!
