The spring version of the IS8 Championships, true to form, had a number of high-major college aged ringers in the form of half of the Red Storm recruiting class. Moe Harkless showed out; D'Angelo Harrison balled and annoyed incoming Georgetown recruit Jabril Trawick.
And you may remember that Jakarr Sampson threw down a nasty dunk off of a pass from Harrison, before Sir'Dominic Pointer, playing for an opposing team, put one down on Sampson defending the paint (videos thanks for Five Star Basketball). It was our first look at some of those players in game action.
IS8 also has a fall tournament. Amir Garrett, currently getting his core grades correct in prep school - says he is coming up to play this weekend as well, at 2 PM for the Panthers team. And incoming recruit Darrick Wood is coming up to New York City to get some run, per his Twitter; his game is
on Saturday next week.
Be on the lookout for whatever information we can grab. And if you're nearby, maybe you should venture to the little gym in South Jamaica by 108th Ave.
