It’s a Family Affair: Brothers from Across the Country Make Their Own Names in a Hotly cContested Environment

I’m not talking about brothers from the neighborhood —I’m talking actual siblings. These are two of the best sibling pairs in all of Middle School Basketball right now (one a pair of twins);  hoops is clearly a priority in these households and so is high level talent at all 4 compete on an elite level.  All four were selected to the MSAAG and in a loaded group of players nationwide fought their way into the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp Top 20 All-Star game against some of the toughest talent in the nation.

Let's meet these talented siblings and stars.

Tyler Flowers (Delaware) - Is a true pass-first point guard who has the ability to score anytime or when his team needs a basket. He is a scoring guard's dream running mate coincidently his brother is one who happens to play that position along with him he a post player's best friend. He is clearly perfect size for a point. 

Flowers a great feel for the game that enables him to set up teammates and get them the ball while they are in a position to score. He’s a smooth ball handler who rarely turns it over and plays with his head and eyes up and at all times to take advantage of his excellent court vision. He runs the team to perfection by directing traffic when getting into a set play, executes the high ball screen well and understands his passing angles when he can't get all the way to the paint. 

In transition he passes the ball ahead to an open wing or post running the middle or calls his own number and finishes with a slash to the basket or pull-up jumper that could extend to the 3-point line.  In the Middle School American game he proved his status his value and showed his skill set by delivering 3-assit to go along with 7-points on 3-for-5 shooting.  He followed that up with an appearance in the Basketball Spotlight Future Phenom Camp Top 20 All-Star game.

Bryce Flowers (Delaware) – The twin and counterpart of Flower, Inc. is Bryce Flowers; he is a shooting guard who shoots well out to the 3-point stripe/20-feet. He is a good athlete and has a fundamental handle.

Bryce can create his own shot some but is best at catching and shooting.  Flowers  is a solid passer with a good basketball IQ both are the sons of coaches. He could be easily considered a combo guard as his career develops.

 Flowers also is an above average slasher to the basket. Defensively he is solid. He has been coached well so he understands basic defensive principles and positioning. He is solid on the ball defensively and is wise enough to use position and cutting off angles to defend quicker players. He is also a very good rebounder for his position.  Just like his twin brother Bryce was a Middle School All-American and also was selected to the Top 20 Spotlight All-Star game.

Ashton Henderson (Michigan) – Ashton is an in the gym shooter, and he has the ability to erupt for points in bunches. He has a very quick first step, good length and changes speed very well to get his opponents off balance, all which makes him a tough cover off the dribble.
Henderson loves to get shots off in the mid-range and can hurt opposing defenses with an assortment of floaters and one-handers. He really understands how to use angles to beat his opponents and also uses his size well on smaller defenders. He also can connect on the one-two dribble mid-range pull-up jump shot.
If left open he can and will drill the jumper from 3-point land and has a great ability to hit contested, difficult shots from insane distances.   Henderson competed in the both the Middle School All-American and was selected to Basketball Spotlights Future Phenom Camps Top 20 All-Star Game.

Keon Henderson (Michigan) - is another scoring point guard that can flat get it going on the offensive end of the floor when the ball is in hands – he must remain aggressive at all time as his unselfish nature often has him focused on distributing the ball.

When he’s cooking he has shooting range off the catch or dribble and he makes contested shots like the defender is invisible. Keon has a sweet stroke that he makes look effortless and shoots with great confidence. When he smells blood from his defender he attacks him repeatedly and the result could be a potential high point performance. 

He pushes the ball in transition and if he is not picked up he will be in the paint before some defenders cross half court; he can slash with his great burst of speed and break though reaching defenders in the lane and finish without any problem and with creativity. 

Keon also has a nice touch and body control. He can also penetrate and kick to open teammates with either hand while making a difficult pass look easy.  Keon just like his big brother competed at in the Middle School All-American game and 2021 Spotlight Top 20 All-Star game.
