CHEF OF THE WEEK
In sports the term “cookin” is reserved for a player who goes on a scoring spree or gets hot during a game and makes big plays on the offensive end.
This week’s “Chef of the Week” award goes Triple A Academy (Dallas) shooting guard King McClure for his 44-point outing last week in a 72-59 win over Bishop Dunne (Dallas).
McClure was on fire from the three-point line, draining went 11 of 15 from the arc in the win.
If that’s not a chef, what is?
POSTER OF THE WEEK
This week’s Poster of the Week winner is Northside Christian (Charlotte, N.C.) wing Rayjon Tucker for this big time poster he created recently at the Holiday Hoopsgiving tournament.
Tucker caught his teammate’s miss off the front of the rim over an opposing player who was trying, to no avail, to clean the defensive glass.
Tucker grabbed the ball with two hands and threw down a ferocious dunk over the player, who ricocheted off of Tucker’s body due to the viciousness of the poster.
OH NO THEY DIDN’T!
This award is reserved for the player who turned in a mind-boggling performance or play that left the crowd in a state of shock and amazement.
This week’s “Oh No They Didn’t” winner is Bishop O’Dowd (Oakland, Calif.) center Ivan Rabb for managing the ever-elusive 30 and 20 game in his season-opening win over Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) last week.
Rabb, who is ranked No. 5 overall in the ESPN 100, scored 30 points and grabbed 20 rebounds in the win.
What made is so much more impressive is that Rabb dominated against one of the most talented frontcourts in the country with Stephen Zimmerman, ranked No. 10, and Chase Jeter, ranked No. 9, anchoring the paint for the Gaels, who were ranked No. 4 in the USA Today HSS Super 25 at the time. Bishop O’Dowd is ranked No. 12.
