IndiHoops Tip-Off is known for creating matchups and one of the top tournaments during Spring travel season. Last night's matchup between AOT and Atlanta Xpress had a bevy of marquee names with Sharife Cooper, Isaac Okoro, Christian Brown, Babatude Akingbola and others but everyone came to see the matchup of BJ Boston and Anthony Edwards. Not only did they play against each other, they guarded each other, which is so rare in summer ball. Coaches are usually concerned with their players reps but last night showed that you can GROW your rep when challenging yourself.
The playing styles are different but the end results prove why they're two of the top wings in a loaded class of wings.
Boston is silly smooth in his movements, has great range on his jumper, moves well without ball and is an underrated passer on the move. His slight build which may result in 1-2 more inches doesn't prevent him from hitting the glass.
Edwards is more power who can overwhelm the defender with his strength and athleticism, proving.that with a blow-by left-handed dunk on a surprised defender. He also has great range on his jumper (similarity with Boston), handles it well and too an underrated passer. Both players already hold multiple offers and will be highly sought by the countries top programs over the next two years.
They gave the people what they wanted. Now they want more.
