Tyree still on fire from deep, he’s hit (7) 3’s in the first half alone. May be the best shooter in the #Super6Showcase @ShowtimeHoops

Two ELITE 100 players from the state of Georgia in D’Marcus Simonds of Gainesville, Ga., and Tyree Crump of Brainbridge of Ga., showed their talents for the future coaching staffs last weekend. Simonds, a Georgia State commit, dazzled fans with his high flying dunks with coach Ron Hunter watching from the baseline. While University of Georgia bound Crump put on a shooting display for the ages. The 6-foot-3 combo guard burned the nets all tourney long. Coach Mark Fox and Bulldog fans will be excited to see those talents in Stegeman Coliseum in years to come.
