Murphy, Griggs headline H'Town's hoops
Originally Appeared on Vype
The Houston high school hoop landscape has been a wild ride this season.
It's going to be a fast break to the finish as teams lock into postseason positions.
While H-Town basketball is thought to be down this year after an historic run by Tompkins to the state title game, there are some interesting story lines in 2019.
Here's what's trending around the city.
MONSTER YEAR FOR MURPHY
Montavious Murphy transferred from Klein Collins to Concordia Lutheran and is the top player in the city right now. Why? He has a great supporting cast, who can all shoot the three. It opens up the lane for the 6-foot-8 Kansas State-signee, who is making teams pay in the middle. The 'Saders should reach the state title game in TAPPS 6A. Interesting note is that Klein Collins is also playing well.
THE BIG TICKET
Hightower's Bryce Griggs is the next big thing to carry the banner for H'Town hoops. The Hightower freshman has offers from Louisville, UH and Kentucky already. He's special with the ball in his hands. He is tremendously poised and is unselfish. He's bringing the stars out to see his games like TJ Ford, T-Mac and James Harden.
