Dunk 4 Diabetes Preview

North Canton, Ohio is the host to a quality weekend event, the Dunk 4 Diabetes. Some of the top young stars in the Buckeye State along with two premier prep schools will all be in one gym this weekend.

Where: North Canton, Ohio (Walsh College)

When: January 25-26, 2014

Reporting Staff: Brian Snow

Top Players: Jalen Coleman, Joseph Toye, JaQuan Lyle, Miles Bridges, Thomas Bryant, Jalen Lindsey, Derek Funderburk, Omari Spellman, Tervell Beck, Dave Bell, Willie Jackson, Carlton Bragg

Looking Forward To: Some of the top players in the Midwest will be at the Dunk 4 Diabetes event this weekend. One of the more intriguing prospects is class of 2016 power forward Omari Spellman. Spellman could be the No. 2 prospect in the state of Ohio in the class, and has a lot of college coaches buzzing. Another Ohio native in that class is Derek Funderburk, a near 6-foot-10 center, Funderburk showed major potential during the summer, and it will be interesting to see if he has taken that next step as a prospect.

Also there are the prep school kids such as Jalen Coleman and Miles Bridges. They are supremely talented underclassmen who have come a long way in the last year, and both are capable of big time scoring games.

Then you also have the five-star talent like Carlton Bragg, JaQuan Lyle, and Teki Gill Caesar who have shined all season long, and will again look to put up big numbers at this event.
