Westminster, CA – As October changes to November, basketball season approaches closer and closer and final tune-ups are being made. Week 5 of The League, hosted by Compton Magic and Schollyme, featured teams expected to make noise this season such as Long Beach Poly and Mayfair, but also teams that will be tough contenders like Harvard Westlake and Warren. Here are five players that stood out:
Adam Hinton | #21 | Harvard Westlake | 2021
When it comes to glue guys and spark plugs, Adam Hinton comes to mind. The 6’6 junior plays with great hustle, sparking up his teammates with his contagious energy whenever he is on and off the court. Hinton also knocks down the three ball at a high clip, reads the help defense well and makes the right play.
Amir Kirkwood | #2 | Mayfair | 2020
Kirkwood makes a huge impact on both sides of the ball. Despite standing at 6’1, the senior takes the challenge to guard all five positions and holds his own on the defensive end, deflecting passes, rebounds well and is quick on his feet. On the offensive end, he can operate on and off-the-ball, a perfect backcourt piece alongside five-star guards Josh Christopher and Dior Johnson.
Jurian Dixon | 2023 | San Ysidro
Jurian Dixon | #24 | San Ysidro | 2023
Although freshman Mikey Williams is the talk of the San Ysidro team, Dixon is another promising freshman in the backcourt. The 6-4 guard is an athletic wing who isn’t afraid of contact, aggressive in driving to the hoop and has great speed in transition. Expect Dixon and Williams to be the backcourt future of San Ysidro for years to come.
Jarred Jones | #3 | Warren | 2020
Warren is one of the most underrated seniors in his class. As a floor general, he has great control of running the tempo and attacks defenders with a quick first step. The 6’3 guard is very aggressive on the offensive end, finishes strong in the paint and knocks down the mid-range shot with ease.
Jahveon Medearis | #0 | Warren | 2020
Medearis is a crafty guard who can score from anywhere. Paired alongside Jones, the two make up one of the deadliest backcourts in Southern California. The 6’4 senior scores well off the dribble, but can also heat up from anywhere on the court in an instant. Medearis is also a very vocal leader on and off the court, constantly communicating with his teammates and keeps his teammates energized.
