First off lets say that the 2008 Marshall County Hoopfest was WEAK. I’m not gonna even sugarcoat anything at all. The first game Memphis White Station vs Columbus Northland was a great game. The stars were stars and it was entertaining the entire game. Joe Jackson (White Station) was playing like the athletic guard he is. He was slashing down the lane and attacking the basket all game long. Columbus Northland bigman Jared Sullinger used his body to get boards and score in the paint at will. The star of the game though was his teammate JD Weatherspoon who used his athletic ability to get five dunks and fill the lanes on the break. Northland won the game and Jared Sullinger was named Game MVP.
Duncanville (TX) is way overrated. They were on the verge of their 3rd straight loss until they pulled it out in OT.
I’m just gonna skip the rest of the day and name the top performers.
