The 2 top SG prospects in the Palmetto State battled on Tuesday and here are some of the highlights. Damien Leonard (2011) and the Patriots hosted a Southside team bent on avenging last year's losses led by SG Robbie Dreher who poured in 36 points. Check out the highlights inside of Leonard (21 points) and Dreher. Also check out up and comer Brandon Boggs of Mann and Southside's Marlin Butler.
Greenville SC-Everyone in attendance watched with great anticipation as these squads locked up. AAA power J.L. Mann handed Southside their 2 losses last season and the Tigers had revenge on their mind. Especially 2009 Winthrop signee SG Robbie Dreher
who missed both games due to an ankle injury. Dreher who has been on a tear to start his senior season showcased all of his talents en route to 36 points.
Mann's Damien Leonard who is rated 4 stars in the 2011 class still managed to score 21 points despite what we feel was a severe lack of touches throughout the game. His teammate Brandon Boggs also had a nice showing with 14 points. Boggs has good length and athleticism and right now we'd say he's at least a D2 level prospect.
Also check out 2009 Southside SG/SF Marlin Butler who is more known for his football prowess. Butler played a very strong game scoring 14 points as well with a ton of key baskets during crunch time and a few highlight plays along the baseline.
