Jeremiah Francis & Treohn Watkins Battle for Ohio Supremacy

While many players across the country are getting shine on the AAU circuit; there is a plethora players that are getting the job done both on the middle school and high school level.  Finding the stars of tomorrow and watching the progression of the stars of today is what we do here at - a recent match-up in the state of Ohio pitted one their area’s top PG Treohn Watkins and nationally ranked Jeremiah Francis who continues to establish himself as primetime performer.  His legendary status continued as he led his team to the championship.  Watkins is no slouch and is a name to keep on the radar; we like his handle, quickness and finishing rapporteur along with the range on his jumper.  He works well off the dribble and can pull up quickly off the bounce.  He showed not only that he can run from the spot but that he can also get you a bucket as evident by the 22-points he put up in the contest.  But Francis remains name brand that you know and trust and he did nothing to deter pundits from that position as he and his team prevailed in this stellar match-up.

Both guards battled and carried their teams for extended stretches of the game and showed immense offensive prowess in front of a packed house – the experience, size, and overall skill set of Francis allowed him to prevail in the end.  Nevertheless it was a very entertaining game that included many highlights (Below).  Francis (19-points) who continues to display improved athleticism and one on one breakdown ability combining this with the defending of the position he is clearly working on all aspect of his game. Jeremiah who has consistently shown a rock solid and well developed skill set nationally remains the measuring stick by which guards are measure in Ohio and keeps him in the discussion as one of the nation’s best players period.  If Francis remains in this region and market we may see this match-up in the future; if not enjoy it now below!
