Area basketball teams are in the midst of summer league play this month, so Brad and Dalton have updates on several squads.
Walnut’s girls are coming off a strong season and will be led by Claire Leak (1:55), a natural scorer who is making the move to point guard. On the boys side, Itawamba AHS is looking to the guard-post duo of Jamerison Martin and Davon Wilder (4:20), while Houlka hopes to give Dashun Berry, the state’s leading scorer last season, more help (6:34).
Also, Tupelo’s boys are looking to get back to Jackson and have a solid core of players that could lead them there (9:30). Forward Josh Mitchell returns, as do guards Braxton Bishop, Mason Gary and Keondra Hampton.
This week’s Shoutout goes to Tupelo long snapper Hayes Hammond (14:09), and Brad previews his upcoming story on Myrtle multi-sport athlete Kinsley Gordon (15:58).
