Some things are just mysteries and unexplainable… UFOs, big-foot, who shot JFK?
The recruitment of The Woodlands Christian Academy's Bakari LaStrap ranks right up there.
What does this kid have to do? The 6-foot guard led his team to its third straight TAPPS title appearance – winning two of them.
He is an exemplary student, he's improved on his three-point game and he has the hops.
LaStrap had a dunk go viral in the state semis that showed off his athleticism.
"When it happened, I thought, that's a nice highlight. I liked the dunk," he laughed. "Overtime retweeted it and my phone blew up. I'd refresh my phone and it was more and more follows."
HOUSTON - Marc-Anthony Batts didn't think he was going to get the ball.
As he streaked down the far side of the court on a fast-break, with 99 points already on the scoreboard, Batts saw the court-length pass from Chuks Isitua go towards the basket. Underneath it was Darryl Brown, who caught it in the middle of the paint, while back-pedaling.
Brown's trajectory was going to take him out of bounds. So, instead of putting up an ill-advised shot directly under the basket he tossed it to Batts.
