Senior Showcase shines; Kadeim Jones wins MVP; Foster grabs Slam Dunk; Gable wins shootout; Mic Lansky shines

The Senior All Star Showcase went down at Belmont HS yesterday as the top seniors battled it out with people in attendance.

With the top 20 Senior hoopers from the Miami Valley in the building, it was a sight to behold as the best of the best put it down in front of a nice crowd.

    Kadeim Jones, G-F Thurgood  the G-F from Thurgood Marshall, garnered the MVP vote as he dominated the game.
While Jones was MVP, there was plenty of action and great play from both sides as the Away squad won 110-107, coached by Marvan Gordon.

 While it wasn't a full house, it was a nice crowd, there was stars in attendace, coaches on hand, and a great atmosphere for the future of basketball.

  In the events leading up to the game, Trotwood's Trotwood's Amir Foster was the Slam Dunk Champion as he did 3 amazing dunks in only 3 tries to defeat Tykiel Brooks. Foster played very well in the game to boot.

Greenville F Isiah Gable came fresh from a recruiting visit to win the 3-pt contest, narrowly defeating Dunbar sharpshooter Storm Cook in the Finals (23-21) as both put on a dazzling display in the exhibition.
Gable hit 11 of the 12 3-pointers in the 1st round, and 10 of 12 in the Finals to seal the deal.

He also starred in the game as well, and at 6'8 with nice Combo Forward size and athleticism, the likes of Iona, SE Missouri, and other D-1s are recruiting the skilled big man.

At halftime, local rising star Artist Mic Lansky lit up the crowd with his performance, setting the event on fire.
Lansky recently did a music video with Superstar Rapper Lil Boosie, even gettin Boosie to come through Dayton during the taping of the video.

With star comedian Ray Jackson providing the entertainment as the host, and one of the top DJs providing the music, the event had a great vibe to it.

Overall the event was groundbreaking, and showed that people will support the future here in a fun and positive manner.

Event hosts Kevin Satterfield & Hoops4U CEO Lorenzo Smith were pleased with the events turnout and knows next year it will be even better.
