This week, however, was a different story, as he had 11 points in 3 consecutive games in the Woodford County Invitational. It would appear that his 11 points against Eastern, Dunbar, and Bryan Station, are a sign that bigger and better things are still to come from this prodigy. Tequan Claitt, Bryan Station: Claitt is a 6’3 Junior who gives the Defenders some much needed size... Read More →
