Hungry young middle school prospects anxious to make a name for themselves hit the hardwood again this past weekend as session 3 of the annual Junior Breakfast of Champions (“JR BOC”) Fall Basketball League took place in Wisconsin Saturday night.  We begin our coverage of week 3 with a look at the top performances in the Phenom Division where 8th grade big man Wyatt Cook stole the show…

Player of the Week – Wyatt Cook – 2017 – F/C – Pewaukee (WI)

Stat Line – 12 points (5-8 FG), 19 rebounds, 6 blocks, 3 steals, 1 assist
Cook delivered his best effort of the fall as he completely dominated the paint both offensively and defensively.  He scored around the basket, he knocked down a couple mid-range looks, he cleaned the glass on both ends, and he was disruptive on defensive in both his activity and ability to alter shots.  An exceptional effort for the young big man who dropped a floor impact of 41, one of the highest in the JR BOC’s two year history.  Great job.

(2)    Melvin Lee – 2017 – PG – Milwaukee (WI)
Stat Line – 14 points (7-15 FG), 10 rebounds, 4 steals, 2 assists
The tough, quick, and talented lead guard continued to impress again this past weekend as Lee was all over the court with his activity and energy and competed on both ends.  Lee attacked the rim well off the bounce, he hit a couple mid-range pull up jumpers, he attacked the glass, he defended well, etc.  A strong floor effort for the emerging lead guard.

(3)    Terrence Lewis – 2017 – SF – Milwaukee (WI)
Stat Line – 18 points (7-13 FG), 5 rebounds, 3 steals
Delivered a solid efficient performance that helped his team to victory.  Lewis finished in transition, he knocked down shots around the basket, he was active on the glass, and he made some nice things happen defensively.  Another solid effort for the talented young forward.

(4)    Jordan McCabe – 2018 – PG – Kaukauna (WI)
Stat Line – 17 points (6-18 FG), 4 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal
Struggled from the field but made some solid plays down the stretch and found ways to make a solid impact and help his team to victory.  He delivered some nice passes, he attacked the glass, he showed nice range again beyond the arc, and he made a number of key plays in key situations to help push his team to victory this past weekend.

(5)    DeAndre Johns – 2017 – G – Pleasant Prairie (WI)
Stat Line – 8 points (3-8 FG), 5 assists, 4 rebounds, 2 steals
A nice well rounded floor performance for Johns this past weekend.  He was active defensively, he made nice decisions with the ball and created in efficient fashion, he attacked the glass at times, and he scored off the bounce and in transition again.  He delivered on both ends of the court and helped his team to a convincing win in the process.
