Don't Underestimate the Clippers
One day I will stop referring to sophomores Zep Jasper, Collin Young, and Christian Keeling, and juniors Jashawn Brooks, Jervon Walker, and Nick Lockhart, and Nick Myers as "young" players making a huge impact on the area basketball scene. But when that day comes they will have undoubtedly left a huge mark, beginning with last season's final four appearance. These players have assembled to form the Clippers in The Fall League. The Clippers opened league play last Saturday with two impressive victories over GAIS and the Pacers.
The Clippers upcoming games against the Warriors (possibly The Fall League's most impressive team thus far) and the Hornets were previewed in a recent ABR post. The Fall League's closest followers are particularly eager to see this Saturday's 11AM game between the Clippers and the Warriors at Evans High School. But as impressive as Ahmed Hill and the Warriors have been, underestimating this group of young but athletic and skilled players would be a huge mistake.
The highlights from the Clippers' recent victories in Fall League play are shown in the video above.
We'll see you in the gym!
