2021 Brook Classic Top Performers
On August 21, Brook Scholars Club hosted their 3rd annual Brook Classic for elite players in Westchester County at GoTorey Dome in White Plains, NY. The Brook Scholars Club’s mission is to provide a positive outlet for youth through basketball competition while providing educational resources to help build financial literacy. Below is a recap of the top performers in this year’s event.
Justin Robinson (2022) 6’0 guard Mount Vernon High School (NY) is a strong and gritty guard getting to any spot he wants. Controls the pace of the game like a true point guard and scores effortlessly at all three levels. A lockdown defender making it tough for any opponent to score and an excellent rebounder impacting the game on both sides of the floor.
Chez Williams (2023) 6’2 guard of White Plains (NY) is a athletic and versatile guard with an uncanny ability for making plays for himself and teammates. With his wingspan he is a great rebounding guard and is able to cause havoc on defense with his deflections and steals.
Deneli McIntosh (2022) 5’10 Palisades Prep (NY) is a guard who is unstoppable when driving to the basket and finishing through contact with either hand despite his height. A handle that allows him to break any defender down and a quick first step to blow by his defenders. Has great court vision and exceptional rebounder at the guard position.
Menzy Carden (2023) 6’2 White Plains High School (NY) showed why he was the most valuable player of the tournament with his combination of athleticism and skills. With a high vertical, he was able to have consecutive blocks multiple times on the defensive end while throwing down vicious dunks on the offensive end. He has a solid handle to get to his spots with a nice mid range jumper and even showed his back to the basket game shaking defenders for a smooth looking fadeaway.
Nasir Becerril (2022) 5’11 Irvington High School (NY) was arguably the hardest working player in the tournament. He attacks the basket ferociously and is able to finish in a variety of ways off the glass. A lefty with a smooth stroke from three that made the defense pay for not contesting. Fighting for lose balls and rebounds, he is one of the players with those intangibles that any coach would love to have.
