The Virginia-bound point man raised his level of play against Mount Zion and in turn, boosted his national stock in a big way. Singletary is an interesting prospect to look at when you take into account how much time he missed this summer and how injured he was when he did play.
An old football injury, to the best of our knowledge, was inflamed when he dunked a basketball and jammed up his shoulder last spring. Being the gamer that he is, Singletary was out there on a bum shoulder doing what he could. Overall, his game struggled in the summer months. His jumper was there and it just wasn't the real Singletary on the court.
To date, while he's still not totally 100% he's feeling – and playing – much better. You would have to look no further than the Bull City Classic title game for evidence.
Against Mount Zion, Singletary came out smoking and he was playing against five high-major signees. For the game Singletary connected on a remarkable 7-for-12 from 3-point land, many of which were contested.
Mount Zion scrambled to issue challenges to its defenders to stop him, but at best they slowed him down. His drives were tough and he played with fearlessness. His effort and energy trickled down to guys like Zach Zeglinski and Rob Kurz.
In summary, Singletary seems poised for a big year. He's on an excellent high school team that should progress far as the year continues. Anything he wasn't able to accomplish personally in the summer is happening for him now since he's playing well.
