Biggs struggles at Peach Jam

Tyrell Biggs continues to struggle against players his size. To make matters worse, his Metro Hawks lost twice, at the hands of the Oklahoma-based Athletes and to the Georgia Stars in the nightcap.

Biggs struggles:
While Brockman has solidified his status as a top priority in the class of 2005, the other interior prospect that has garnered some interest, 6-foot-7 power forward Tyrell Biggs, had his problems for the second straight event today. In the first game Biggs couldn't seem to operate in the paint, and had trouble against players who were a ‘legit' 6-foot-8 and taller.

Despite the trouble, Biggs had to notice both Coach K and assistant Chris Collins courtside taking in the action. Biggs finished the day with 10 points, but it wasn't enough as the Metro Hawks fell to Oklahoma-based Athletes First 67-63.

It didn't get any better in the evening as the Hawks ran into a visibly motivated Georgia Stars team that features top 2005 guards Louis Williams and Mike Mercer. The Stars ended up spanking the Hawks by 20 while Biggs tallied another 10 point effort.

Others scouting the New Jersey big forward included coaches from Georgia, Penn State, Maryland, Wake Forest, UConn, Seton Hall and Pittsburgh.
