I happen to know both of these two young players and they are really good people. Their success is directly related to how hard they work in the classroom and on the court. Both of these players are of high character and are well respected. Not to mention, both will be back this season aiming at a state championship. Both players are very well coached in high school and with their respective AAU clubs!
