Welcome to Texas Boys Basketball, we are a scouting / evaluation service committed to the ongoing observation of high school and JUCO players.
Day Three Recap Spring Ice Breaker
Championship Sunday of the 17U bracket featured two surprise teams, the Houston Hoopstars along with the Houston Defenders. After an ultra productive and competitive weekend, the championship game featured two talented teams with over 10 division one players participating in it.
Day Three TJ Ford Invitational
Day three often know as championship day in grassroots basketball, when the parking lot is thin and the defeated is headed home but the semi-finals may have been the highlight of this Sunday. The match up between RL-9 and TJ Ford Elite Blue had the Sunday championship feel about it. fans on the floor, hanging over the rail, where ever they could get a clean look at the dunkfest. The two teams brought 12-14 Low-mid prospects with plenty of high major athletes.
SIB Day 1/2 Recap
If you live in Houston and aren't watching the NCAA tournament, RCS Sports Spring Ice Breaker is a must attend event for basketball fanatics. The Spring Ice Breaker is one of the oldest grassroots basketball tournaments in Texas. Every year the teams and players make it down to Houston to participate. This year RCS Sports has provided an opportunistic platform for young players to receive exposure before April's NCAA live period. Programs come from all over the state to attend which drives local media to the event. Texas Boys Basketball understands the value of evaluating talent early and often allowing us to build our knowledge base on prospects early. With the first two days officially in the books here are the players that performed at a high level and some that boosted their stock heading into the travel season. Below are some of the best we saw:
Day One T. J. Ford Invitational
Round Rock Sports Center hosted the 2nd annual T. J. Ford Invitational. TBB got in on stormy night to catch T.J. Ford Gray vs. Austin Dawgs 17U on ct. one, that provided an opportunity for a few players to make the need to see more list (which is a good thing). R. J. Phillips (2016) 6'1' combo led with an eye catching performance of 22 pts, 4 rebs, and 5 ast. to get the 53-48 win over T.J. Ford Gray. The strong guard left the last 6 mins with an shoulder injury, we (TBB) are hoping to see his return this weekend. Yeskin Williams (2017) 6'5" 4/3 had a double-double that had a high energy nature about it. Remy Minor (2018) PG had leadership on both ends with flashes of impact. The atmosphere at the RR Sports Center has the potential to be one of the best. Players will get multiple opportunities this weekend. The question is what will they do with them.
