Memphis Sheffield star Chris Crawford had one heck of a week in Las Vegas.
In fact, the 6-4, 185-pound guard stepped out of the shadow of Memphis Magic Elite stars Joe Jackson, Tarik Black and Adonis Thomas with a spectacular performance in the Adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas.
That included hitting a game-tying 3-pointer and then the game-winning shot off a pass from Jackson as his team downed the New England Playaz 64-62.
"I looked at the clock and took the dribble … 1.3 (seconds remaining), I think," said Crawford, who was at this past weekend's Arkansas Elite Camp. "I knew it was going in. Wasn't any doubt in my mind."
How spectacular? He went into the event with a single Division I scholarship from Baylor and soon afterwards had a whopping 11 of them.
"It was real fun," Crawford said. "Our team won it and we showed that we were the best team out there in AAU basketball.
"My stock went high because I was shooting the ball so well," Crawford said. "I was underrated going out there, but they know me know."
Scholarship offers flooded in afterwards from Memphis, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Alabama, Mississippi State, Georgia, Georgetown, UTEP, Missouri and Seton Hall.
Arkansas has also shown increased interest in a young man.
"I like their coaching staff," Crawford said of the Razorbacks. "I am very interested in them."
The entire starting five return this season for Sheffield.
"We are expecting to be very, very good this season," Crawford said.
