I know, I know, dunks aren’t everything. And we have a lot more coming out from the 2013 Southeast Summer Showcase. It’s just hard to ignore the viral reaction from Carlee Clemons’ dunk-heard-round-the-world, which not only was picked up by MaxPreps, Bleacher Report and Yahoo! Sports, but made it all the way to #2 on ESPN’s Top 10. Carlee has since gotten interest from several new colleges and will no doubt see quite a bit more going into July.
Of course, Basketball Elite has been featured in national media before, including CBS Sports and Dime magazine, but the appearance on ESPN is a first.
Today’s post is about the awards from the event, including Clemons (Dunk Champion), and Kedrick Flomo (G, 6’2, ’14) of North Forsyth HS who walked away with MVP honors, and Gerald Vaughn Jr (G, 5’8, ’14) who took home the Coaches Award.
There were several players with excellent showings that got picked up by several of the scouts, including Justice Cuthbertson, Stavian Allen, Gary Clark, Javis Howard, Juwan Evans and Ronshad Shabazz. We will continue to push out full reports.
More coming soon.
