Marietta, Ga. – Tuesday night, Hillgrove traveled across town to Marietta to face region opponent Osborne High School. Here are two points we walked away with: 

1. Collin Sexton will be one of the top players in Georgia’s 2017 class

Sexton is a scoring wing with good skill. He has good size and strength. He can score off the catch or dribble in transition or in the half court. He runs the lane where he spots up along the arc looking to read penetration so he can move to the open area to get off his shot. He has a nice stroke from three with good elevation and nice release. He can shoot the dribble pull up going right or left and Sexton is also very good getting to the rim along the baseline where he likes to spin off defenders to get to the rim. The 6-foot-4 guard finished with a game-high 28 points as Hillgrove defeated Osborne 70-56.  Sexton has attracted the attention of Clemson, Tulane, Georgia, South Alabama, Ole Miss, and Southern Mississippi.

2. One of the state’s elite shooters who you haven’t heard about

Available senior guard Kyire Hogan of Osborne High School has had multiple 50 point games this season.  Hogan has range out to 25-plus feet. There is no question he stretches the defense better than most. When he heats up, he has the ability to go on a run to knock down four or five deep three pointers in a row.  Hogan did a good job of running the floor and finding the three-point line in transition where he knocked down (2) three pointers from deep in the first quarter. Hogan has attracted attention from many low major Division One programs around the south in recent weeks.
