Goodrich Cruises Opening Night, Martians Have High Expectations

Goodrich lost two key seniors this off season but the goals have not changed for the Martians.  Carrington Wiggins left for prep school and Goliath Mitchell went down the road to Grand Blanc, both were key contributors last season as juniors.  However Goodrich has enough young talent to still make a run at the Class B State Title.  Returning Starters Kevin-David Rice (6-5), Trell Fordham (6-4), and Matai Swain (6-6) are all high major D-1 prospects, and are all only sophomores.  Throw in talented freshman Tyson Davis at the point and Goodrich is legit! Goodrich had little trouble in...

Peach Jam and PIT Recap

For the opening week on the NCAA live period Michigan kids that play for Nike teams headed south to North Augusta, South Carolina.  EYBL teams that qualified had the opportunity to play in the nation’s most prestigious tournament, the Peach Jam.  While the rest of the EYBL teams played in the Peach Invitational Tournament (PIT).   The Family 15’s put Michigan back on the map by winning the 15u Peach Jam, but the fashion in which they did it made their run so special.  From day 1 whispers were being passed around on how good them boys from Michigan looked.  They dominated the field and went 5-0, with winning by an average margin of 14 points, including a 20 point win in the Championship game.   The Family 15’s weren’t the only team with Michigan bodies that found some success.  Spiece made a run all the way to the championship game of the PIT (EYBL) division, where they lost by two points to the Southern Stampede.   The Family 16s also had a strong showing by winning their pool and advancing to the round of eight before falling by two points to Team Final.   Below is a list of some of our Michigan kids who stood out in N. Augusta:   (Alphabetical Order)   Maliq Carr, 6-6, The Family 15’s- every successful team has an enforcer, a so...
