Reece’s Standouts: Phenom Grassroots Tip-Off Classic (Day 1)

by: Ethan Reece 2024 Graham Williams (Hoop Dreams)The definite long term potential is evident in Graham’s game. His length was overwhelming for the opponent and he utilized it to its full extent. He was a one-man clean-up crew around the glass and finished everything he came up within the lane. You can already see good feel and awareness defensively along with a muscular tone to his body that...
