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 Cal Supreme center DeAndre Ayton for dropping 23 points, 18 rebounds and five blocks in a win over Phoenix Phamily (Ariz.) last week at Peach Jam.

Ayton, who is ranked No. 1 overall in the ESPN 100, managed his numbers against Marvin Bagley III, the No. 1 overall player in the ESPN 60.

Dominance against a fellow dominant player?

True chef behavior.

Poster of the Week

This week’s Poster of the Week winner is Team CP3 (N.C.) point guard Blake Harris for the vicious poster he created at Peach Jam last week.

Harris sped down the floor and rose up for the one-hander as five-star forward Billy Preston, who stands 6-foot-10, skied in for the block.

Bad idea.

Harris ripped the ball in the goal for the flush over Preston.

This one you have to see to believe.

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 Mokan Elite (Mo.) point guard Trae Young for hitting the Michael Jordan shoulder shrug after dropping three three-pointers in a row in a win over the Las Vegas Prospects last week at Peach Jam.

Jordan made the shoulder shrug famous during Game 1 of the 1992 NBA Finals against the Portland Trailblazers after he hit his sixth three-pointer in the first half. Jordan went on to score 39 points in the win.

Young was just behind Jordan with 32 points in the win.
