Boo: Quarterfinal Action

Saturday night in Hampton, VA saw the quarterfinal round of the Boo Williams AAU event tip off. TDD was once again courtside for all the action.

Game One-Georgia Stars vs Seattle Friends of Hoop

The most competitive game of the night, it actually went into overtime with Georgia pulling out the 83-81 win. Both teams were very evenly matched the entire game, and it was very physical with the big men from both teams taking no prisoners, especially #40, Jon Brockman, for Seattle.

Brockman is quickly establishing himself as one of the premiere talents in his class. He's already getting interest from schools such as North Carolina, Washington, Gonzaga, and Kansas to name a few. After the game he admitted that he's wide open, and this weekend's performance will likely earn more interest from some big name programs.

Brockman finished with 24 points, 10 rebounds, and two blocks on the night. At 6-foot-7 and 235 pounds, he seems to relish contact in the lane thanks to his strength and overall aggressive attitude in the lane. On the glass he's fearless, looking to push and bang to secure the ball.

As the game wound down, the score remained close throughout the second period before Georgia started to pull away late. However a big run in the last two minutes from Seattle ended with Brockman converting a lay-up as time expired to send the game into overtime.

Player of the game for Georgia had to be Louis Williams, the kid is still unreal when it comes to scoring. Williams finished the game with 24 points, but no assists and two rebounds. Fact is, Louis is not a point guard, not even close, but scoring he's the man.

Boo Williams vs NorCal Elite

This game was over before it started as Boo Williams was just too stacked for a young NorCal squad. To their credit, NorCal played very hard, but the tables were just too stacked against them.

A player of note for NorCal is the young PF Diamon Simpson, who is rail thin, but has the attitude that no one can stop him where ever he is on the floor.

For Boo, Scotty Reynolds finished with over ten points on some beautiful jump shots and in a surprise of the night, Vernon Macklin, he had 6 blocks and multiple rebounds, playing as well as he had all weekend.
