HoopSeen Tip-Off HSA Top Performers

HoopSeen Tip-Off HSA Top Performers

Our season has officially tipped off over here at HoopSeen. This was the first weekend where we got to see HoopSeen Association teams in action, and let me tell you, we couldn't be more thrilled about it. If this weekend was any indication, the HSA is going to be as talented as ever. The pool of great teams is wide-reaching too. Every corner of the southeast is covered. The HSA takeover is real and picking up steam by the year. 

 

Here are some of the guys from the HoopSeen Association who stood out to our staff from the weekend:

Bailey has to be one of the top sophomores in the country. His play for his age is something you don’t see very often. The 6-foot-8 forward looks to have a 7-foot-plus wingspan and is one of those rebounders that come along that is always in the right place. He runs the floor well, has great posture for his size and he finishes plays at the rim. Bailey is going to be one of the more popular recruits in the 2024 class in not only Georgia but the country. - Justin Byerly

When Team Wall needed a bucket, Tubbs-Matthews wanted the ball and he made the opposition pay. Friday he helped Team Wall take the lead late in the game against a very good AOT team with a three-pointer and the foul. Saturday afternoon, much the same as Tubbs-Matthews received the in-bound pass with 8 seconds remaining and drove the lane while making a tough shot to secure the win over All-Alabama at the buzzer. Tubbs-Matthews has been a name we have talked about quite a lot going back to the North Carolina high school season and he was named to our HoopSeen North Carolina 4-A All-State team. - Justin Byerly

This may have been one of the most well-rounded floor generals at the event. Edwards is a quick guard with a good feel for the game. He can score the ball both off the bounce and with his jump shot. He also showed his ability to control the tempo of the game and make the correct reads. His impact is felt on the defensive end too as he is a solid on-ball defender that likes to apply pressure. - Brianna Patton

Matthew Krass is a 6–foot-2 PG from the great state of Mississippi, and this kid can flat-out score. Krass plays with a lot of energy and definitely possesses that competitive nature to win. He’s crafty maneuvering to the rim and does a solid job drawing the foul. At his best for Community Saved, Krass dropped 30 points in an epic battle against Team Knight. - D’Courtland Christian

Anthony Fairfax was by far one of the most consistent players from the state of Alabama this weekend. Standing at 6-foot-6, Fairfax is a swing-forward that can give you buckets inside the paint or around the perimeter. He’s aggressive, plays nonstop on both ends of the floor, and is explosive as they come. On the last day, Fairfax left his mark at this year’s Tip-Off dropping 18 points in his first game and 19 points for the second. This kid played his heart out this weekend and is well deserved as a top performer for the HSA. - D’Courtland Christian
