Hoop Quest Weekly CSRA Top 5 Rankings (11/27/16)

By GW (Hoop Quest Report), 11/29/16, 2:30PM EST


This Week Top Performers/Stories:

1. Richmond Academy faces some challenges this week at home; Tuesday night vs. Westminister & Friday night vs. Glenn Hills and Saturday night @ Westside.  The Musketeers will face the area's best PG 2017 Jelani Watson-Gayle (Westminister), but will have a clear advantage in their teams depth.  Friday night's Forward match-up with 6'5 2017 Moses Williams (Richmond) vs.  6'6 2018 Timmy Sellers should be a dual of high energy players.    

2. One of the area's best scorers 2017 CG Justin Phillips will start his season this Friday night @ Evans and this Saturday vs. Richmond.  Long, silky smooth, and versatile guard that can score and rebound.  He will need his side kick and workhorse 2017 PF/C Elijah Brown to stay out of foul trouble this year for the Patriots to be a force to reckon with.    

3. Jelani Watson-Gayle (Westminister) is the area's top 2017 player and a true PG that can impact the game on the offensive end effectively and score with the best of them when needed.  He will face his toughest test this Tuesday and maybe the whole season tonight when he is defended by Richmond's 2017 Jason Weaver and 2018 DT Stephens.
