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 winner is Lone Peak (Highland, Utah) combo guard Frank Jackson for dropping, count ‘em, 49 points in a loss at the Spalding Hoophall Classic last week.
Jackson, a Duke signee, went head-to-head with Arizona commit Kobi Simmons in the game.
Check out the highlights below.
Poster of the Week
This week’s Poster of the Week winner is Oldsmar Christian (Oldsmar, Fla.) forward Jerome Merritt for dropping the hammer at the MLK Classic last week.
Merritt caught the ball in the corner, crossed right-to-left then left-to-right and left his defender as he darted toward the baseline.
That’s when he rose up over a defender and punched home the one-hander; quite viciously.
Check it out below.
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 Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) shooting guard Ty-Shon Alexander for scoring a team-high 15 points and draining a clutch three at the buzzer to win the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions title.
Down one with just 3.2 seconds remaining, Alexander, a Creighton commit, came off of a high screen and launched a fadeaway three-ball from the right corner.
Draining a high degree of difficulty shot to claim a championship? Oh yes he did.
