In the Individual Exposure Showcase, a lot of players stepped up their game, maybe none moreso than 6’5 senior Jimmy Beane of Jacksonville Potter’s House Academy. The muscular guard has developed into quite the jump shooter. He dropped thirty points playing half of a running clock game, predominantly on threes and mid-range jumpers off the dribble.
We’ll have more in-depth coverage over the course of the week on the event that is turning out to be one of the best Fall Festivals in recent memory.
