His IS8 Play Opens Many NYC Experts' Eyes

Reporter Mike Sullivan discusses the individual game of Jeronne Maymon, who has a terrific time playing basketball on the small court at IS8 during the Fall League ...

Unique All Stars head coach Torrel Harris knows the game of basketball. It shows when watching his sons, Tyler and Tobias, compete both on the high school level and the AAU level.

Tobias has emerged as one of the best players in the 2010 class while Tyler recently picked up his first scholarship offer from Fordham. Tyler is a year behind Tobias.

So, having guided his sons to become better players, it was interesting to hear what Mr. Harris thought of the game of Jeronne Maymon, a Marquette signee who competed for Harris' AAU team during the Fall League and the playoffs.

"He does a lot of things well on the court," said Mr. Harris. "He rebounds, blocks shots, can help you bring the ball up the court. I got to know a lot about his game."

Mr. Harris spoke to us on a couple of occasions regarding Maymon's individual game. At 6-foot-7, Jeronne was terrific near the basket too.

"He helps you win," said Mr. Harris.

Maymon went up against the best players from the talent soaked area of New York City. He just did his job and worked hard at both ends of the court.

"He was one of the best players in the league," Mr. Harris said. "He's going to be a very good college player."
