Brown Lands New Offers at Peach Jam
BABC’s EYBL season came to an end on Saturday after falling to Mokan Elite and thus ending their run at the 2014 Nike Peach Jam.
BABC finished pool play with a record of 2-3 but drew an extremely tough schedule with two of their five opponents having since advanced to the event’s semifinals.
The week was the latest in a growing line of big performances from Bruce Brown who led the team with an average of 14 points per game. The rising junior was especially impressive on Friday, scoring 20 points against Boo Williams and almost single handedly securing the victory with several big plays in the final minute of regulation. He rounded out the day by dropping 24 point son Spiece Indy Heat on Friday night.
His performance resulted in new scholarship offers from the likes of Iowa State, Virginia Tech, and Providence who join a list that already included UMass, Boston College, VCU, Rhode Island, Miami, Tulsa, Minnesota, Xavier, and Texas Tech.
Boston College made quite a statement for both Brown and Terance Mann alike on Friday night as head coach Jim Christian arrived with all three of his assistant coaches.
While the headlines are nothing new for Brown and Mann, there were a couple of other players who managed to step up in a big way this week.
Aamahne Santos was instrumental in a number of games, not only taking great care of the basketball but also making several big shots, especially down the stretch of the win against Boo Williams.
Tommy Mobley had a great showing to start the week, going five of seven from beyond the three-point line against Team Scan, while Christian Wilkins was tremendous against MoKan Elite, going for 10 points on 5-9 shooting from the floor and pulling down 7 rebounds (6 of which came on the offensive end).
