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 Team Breakdown (Fla.) guard L.J. Figueroa for dominating the first session at the Under Armour Association to the tune of 26 points per game in New York last weekend.
Figurerora’s high for the weekend was 41 points against Oklahoma Run PWP. He capped off the weekend with a 30 point outing against We R1 (N.J.) and No. 1 point guard Trevon Duval.
Setting the tone for a beast mode summer; true chef behavior indeed.
Poster of the Week
This week’s Poster of the Week winner is Huntington Prep (Huntington, W.Va.) wing Miles Bridges for dropping the hammer on a poor soul at the opening Under Armour stop in New York last weekend.
A small crowd gathered around a goal as a would-be defender backed up, challenging Bridges, a Michigan State signee, to try and dunk.
That’s when Bridges, who was still wearing his coat, took off and threw down a windmill, thus creating an instant poster victim.
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 Dillard (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) forward Joniya Byngi Gadson for shattering the backboard on a strong dunk during AAU practice with the Florida Vipers.
Gadson, who won a state title with Dillard, likened the feeling of breaking the backboard to how Villanova’s Kris Jenkins must’ve felt after draining the game-winning three-pointer in the national title game.
Yeah, we could see that.
