J.J. Hickson's bad first half was complimented with a very good second half. Majority of his 15 points came in the second period after being benched in the first half. Hickson is athletic and already has some go-to post moves. His jump hook is nice and he likes a little contact. When he wants to be a good rebounder he is, because of his length and athleticism. He has cemented himself as one of the top 15 or so players in his class.
Tyree Graham showed up playing with the D-One Sports 17 and under team this weekend. Graham didn't have his best of efforts Friday night in a loss against the Cleveland Basketball Club's 16 and under team. Graham made a few nice passes but really seemed to be forcing the issue. The point guard said after the game that Wake Forest is where he wants to play his college basketball.
