VIDEO: Brundidge and Williams vs. All-Ohio Red
FT. WAYNE - The 2011 class in the state of Michigan has generated a great deal of buzz because it appears that the junior class depth and talent both inside and out.
The Family 16-and-under team has roster filled with talented juniors. In the Family's 76-71 over Ohio powerhouse All-Ohio Red three players came to the forefront for the Detroit based travel basketball team.
Southfield High standout Carlton Brundidge, whom many believe is the top in-state player in the junior class carried the The Family on offense. The thick 6-foot-1 guard, scored 27 to lead all scorers in the game.
Brundidge is an excellent ballhandler and one of the best rebounding guards in the country. As a sophomore he showed an improved shot although the bulk of his scoring came in transition or slashing the basket.
If Brundidge can develop a dependable shot from the perimeter, he will see his stock soar. Brundidge has worked hard to improve his jump shot. The gains he has mad were on display against All-Ohio Red. Brundidge buried his first two 3-point attempts on back-to-back possessions. Those initial field goals set the tone for Brundidge's scoring spree.
While Brundidge has been working on his shot, 6-foot-10 Amir Williams has been polishing his post moves. Williams is coming along nicely on offense. He scored 10 points against All-Ohio Red, but his biggest impact came on the defensive end of the floor. Williams was an active rebounder and a dynamic shotblocker against All-Ohio Red.
While Brundidge and Williams are high profile members of the 2011 class, The Family has a number of other talented juniors including Detroit Consortium's Desmond Barnes, who was outstanding against All-Ohio Red.
