Top 50 Showcase- Day 1 Recap

There was plenty of talents to fill the courts at Hughes HS for the first day of action at CPHR and The Cincinnati Herald's Top 50 Spring Showcase. College coaches were intrigued by several senior prospects such as Kairo Cannon, who's motor never stopped as he made plays on both ends all day long, CJ Taylor, Ryan Glass, and more. At the younger ages we saw several standout performances from big guys Garrett Maybelen, Isaiah Johnson, Chris Connell, Devin Williams, Trent Donald and more; while guards like Tim Coleman, Kevin Johnson, Kenny Kauffman, Willy Moore, Corey Wise, and Monty Boykins all stood out.

The highlight of the day was the final game in which the much anticipated match-up of Aaron Thomas and Semaj Christon finally occurred. The game was an impromptu matchup of player selected teams and was a battle from start to finish, with Semaj's team getting the 82-80 win. When the dust had settled Thomas had 47 points and Christon 39. Both of these guys hit tough shot after tough shots and showed their competitive sides in the match-up. CPHR has full video of the game and highlights will be coming very soon!
