Southern Invitational - Hoop Group

Hampton, Virginia - May 26, 2015

Source VirginiaPreps.com - Earlier this month, VirginiaPreps.com was on hand at the Hoop Group Southern Jam Fest from the Boo Williams Sportsplex in Hampton, VA.  The event is annually one of the most intriguing stops on the spring and summer basketball tour.

To no surprise, there were a ton of prospects from all over the state of Virginia and East Coast as various AAU travel tams were in action in four different age groups. We highlight the names that appear to be flying under the radar to a degree, though it's doubtful that remains the case for long.

James Butler, 6'8" F, Lake Braddock

Class:  2016

AAU:  VA Elite

The Skinny:  One of the most productive players in the state this past winter, Butler averaged 24.2 points per game - tops among all Group 6A players - and made 120-of-171 free-throws for the Bruins in leading them to a 16-8 overall record.  The bloodlines are good in this family.  James' father, Vernon, is Navy's second all-time leading scorer and helped the Midshipmen reach the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament in 1986.  His sister, Natalie, redshirted this past year as UCONN won a National Championship this past season after she transferred to the Huskies from Georgetown.

 

Besides providing scoring punch and the ability to rebound from either forward position, what Butler brings is great court sense and smarts.  There aren't a lot of wasted plays or shots out of him, and all colleges covet efficient players who can be an asset for them in multiple facets.  Probably best suited as a '4' man at a low-major program, Butler currently holds offers from Army and Navy with Radford on the verge of joining them.

 

Tyland Crawford, 6'3" G, C.D. Hylton                

Class: 2016                              

AAU:  VA Elite

The Skinny:  Last winter with the Bulldogs, Crawford enjoyed what some could call his breakout season with averages of 13.3 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.  He's transferred some of the freakishly athletic qualities he showed there to the grassroots scene and fits the description of a hidden gem type for recruiters.  He connected on 18 3's last season at Hylton, but is shooting the ball better than before so that opponents can't lay off him and play the drive.

A solid look for a D-2 school, Crawford is classic 'tweener' that isn't a true point guard or limited to playing just the off-guard spot.  And like Butler, has the academic piece that makes him more attractive to schools at the next level with a 3.8 GPA.  His bounce reminds me some of former Tallwood standout Mike Holloman, who went on to play his College Basketball at D-2 Mount Olive in North Carolina.

Big Foot Hoops Big Cup

Houston, Texas

May 12, 2015 

 

 

U17 Captured #1 Spot in Pool Play and advance to Platinum Bracket competition.

U16 Captured #1 Spot and advanced the Platinum Division

Team U15: The team started out playing an 8:00am game against one of the premier teams in the tournament and the country Mac Irvin from Chicago, Ill.  Throughout the game Bryce Golden (St James, Hagerstown, MD) and Nick Albert (Westfield H.S., Chantilly, VA) showcased their talents that was recognized by the opposing team coaching staff. 

U15 Competed against the premier teams in the country

Throughout the game Nick Albert was pressured by Mac Irvin guards and made the adjustments to keep the team close. Bryce Golden displayed his dominance and abilities throughout the game by showcasing his ability to play inside and outside.

After dropping 30 points in the first game of the season, Butler hasn’t let up, averaging 23.7 points and serving as a versatile weapon for the Bruins as they enter postseason play this week.

“When I was younger, I felt expectations but now I don’t because I’m blessed that my family has worked with me so many hours and gone out of their way to help me get better,” said Butler, who plays for Virginia Elite on the AAU circuit. “I knew I wanted to attack it because this was the year I had to make a big jump, so I was working on my speed, strength, post moves, shooting, anything to get an advantage.”
