Josh Bowens for Grassroots NC 16's was impressive as they come yesterday. 29 points. He can switch hands and finish, has a good feel for the game coupled with a nice little mid-range game. He is a natural scorer with nice elevation on jumper and he is a good rebounder for position. He gets into the lane and finishes with a nice floater, shake and bake mid-range. 

 

WBC Elite With Big Win 

The boys from the beach were outstanding in their win over Team Raleigh. Unsigned senior James Jones went for 18 points and was a monster on the boards. Rodmik Allen scored 15 points and Mikhail Pocknett scored 17 in the win. This group can do some damage this weekend and are fun to watch.
