He spins. He jukes. He breaks ankles. He hurts feelings. He pretty plays basketball exactly like you would expect Spider-Man to play basketball, and the coolest thing about this video is that none of the people he’s beating the pants off of know that the man in the Spidey suit is none other than The Professor, who rose to fame by earning a spot on the And 1 tour during the show’s run on ESPN. The Professor never lets on, either, and leaves the court without telling anyone his true identity, just like Spider-Man would do.

Thought we’d share the highlights from Bryce Lanning and Elite Mix Tapes, especially since they feature so many players we know and have followed over the years.
Mitron Terry (PG, 6’2″, 2014) Webb HS (NC) is a player we’ve mentioned multiple times over the past year, and a player that colleges should be actively recruiting. This past season Terry was more known for playing with UNC commit Isaiah Hicks, but Terry is a solid player in his own right, and has bulked up over the past year. Here’s some junior season highlights.
Can’t say we’re not excited for the guys – we’ve been scouting them for years and they’ve put in the work!
Theo Pinson had a great game against rival High Point Christian a few days ago – a game that we broadcast live on NetCastSports.com – and our pals at Ball Game Media were also on hand to put together this sweet highlight package of Mr. Pinson.
Daryl Myers (PG, 5’7″, 2016) is a player who colleges should be getting involved with right now – a flashy point guard with some of the best passing and style since Tyler Lewis, and he has four more years to improve. Today we feature his mixtape, shot at this year’s Basketball Elite Southeast Summer Showcase by M2 Productions.

It’s fun to see the proliferation of mixtapes that are common for many players today, and they range from highlight tapes showcasing the players’ overall game to heavily stylized, slow motion free-for-alls. These are fun, but often they don’t match reality.
Perhaps the only player whose mixtape matches the reality of seeing him play is Michael Jordan. Jordan made the phenomenal play seem routine. Here’s some video of Jordan in HD that shows his essence, his ability to score and dominate even the greatest basketball players in the world.
You might have seen our mention of Madison Jones last week, in our continuing series on the top high school basketball players in North and South Carolina for 2011-12 (Part 2), and of course, seeing is believing.
Here’s the official Madison Jones highlight mixtape from our good friends at M2 Productions:
