Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic: Welcome to the Premier of the Ashton Henderson Show! Are you not Entertained?

Ashton Henderson (Michigan) - SG 2022

Each year Mike Melton Basketball Spotlight Tournament Series introduces the country to new star – the name “Home of Future Phenoms” is apropos as there is one thing for certain and two things for sure; new stars will be birthed on the courts of the Spotlight.    

This past weekend in the Tip Off Classic we have meet the newest sensation in the 2022 class Ashton Henderson from Detroit, Michigan.  Henderson is a talented playmaker with an instinctive understanding of how to put the ball in the basket. He's a big time scorer whose shooting stroke is tailor made to translates very well to the next level. He's smooth and knows how to space in order to get into his scoring zone and he has very little wasted motion.  The range on his 3-point shot is anywhere inside of half court and as a rhythm scorer he is capable of going on long scoring binges that allow his team to ride him for long periods.  

At one point during the weekend Henderson made 4 consecutive three pointers on 4 straight possessions – not shots, possessions.  We very well may be witnessing the development of one of the most prolific scorers in the class.   Ashton also showed can make plays on and off the ball, handle and get to the paint off the bounce when needed in the half court or on the break – showed excellent court vision and proved to be an excellent open court passer.  

Very complete player who will only get better which doesn’t boded well for future competition – with the high threshold of talent at the Spotlight Tip Off Classic, if he can do it there trust he can do it anywhere.  

Stay tuned for the next showing of Ashton Henderson – coming to a gym near you!
