It was a year made up of moments, moments that ultimately defined their status as All-Americans.
Take it from Collin Sexton, who put his name in the ranks by dominating the spring season as the EYBL leading scorer. His performance earned him a spot on the USA Basketball U17 squad. What is Sexton's favorite moment from the past year? Taking home a gold medal in the FIBA World Championships with MVP honors as the team's leading scorer at 17 points per game.
"That was different," Texas-bound PG Matt Coleman added.
But it's all about competition for these guys, albeit friendly. Gary Trent Jr. couldn't help to bring up the moment when he dropped 50 points on Sexton's Southern Stampede.
As the discussion continued, however, there was one consistent moment each player wanted but only few could call their own: Mokan Elite's Peach Jam Championship.
Can you believe it? After a stellar senior year at Oak Hill Academy, all Matt Coleman could do was shake his head at the fact that Boo Williams missed Peach Jam three years in a row. Additionally, Sexton is worked up that the Southern Stampede never got a bite at Mokan Elite and the Michael Porter Jr./Trae Young duo, while John Petty's favorite moment was beating Mokan Elite in a game that mean absolutely nothing.
When it's all said and done, these will be the moments these Flo40 stars will never forget.
