Biggers At Mount Zion
At the 2000 Nike All-American Camp, a young man named Roscoe Biggers emerged as a fine, then junior, point guard target. Biggers is from New York but didn't return to the state for his next season of basketball. Instead, he headed out to Compton (CA) Centennial and that's where he got himself lost.
"Everything went wrong, but I am back on track on now," Biggers said. Back on track means he's entering his fifth-year at Mount Zion Christian Academy in Durham, N.C. Biggers says he has a qualifying test score and is ready to take some visits.
So far, Auburn, American, Drexel, Manhattan and Iona have expressed interest. He's visiting American the weekend of Oct. 27 and Drexel the following weekend. Auburn is keeping close tabs on him.
"Cliff Ellis was straight with me," Biggers said. "He loved the way I play but he said that I would have to hit the outside shot." Well, Biggers is taking Ellis' words to heart and he's getting up 300-400 jumpers a day at Mount Zion.
In a workout Friday night, his jumper definitely looked much improved and that work seems to be paying off. He's a very good passer and that's his mentality. Sometimes, he'll get a little careless, but he's a tough-minded New York type point guard.
