DMV Players Shine In Ohio Showcase
BLACKLICK, OH - Three of the DMV’s top players from the classes of 2023, 2022, and 2021 attended the invitation only Mayhem in the Midwest Ohio Top 20 Showcase event on April 19, 2014. Their invitations were designed to create direct match-ups with some of the best players at their respective positions in the country and in turn directly affect their status on national ranking boards.
The DMV was represented by:
Sarmartine “Fatman” Bogues – Class of 2023 (DMVelite #1)
Chris Winborne – Class of 2022 (DMVelite #3) [Pictured, Right]
Jake Koverman – Class of 201 (DMVelite #15)
Given the national reputation of the DMV as one of the nation’s best regions for basketball; all three players walked into the gym with a target on their backs. Each of them produced when called upon at an elite level, leaving no doubt that the proving grounds of the DMV still produce some the nation’s elite players, even in the youth age group. Starting with a drill session ran by a member of the Ohio Buckeyes coaching staff, each player showed a sample of what they could do in this portion of the event.
When the games started and the lights came on they each got even better; Sarmartine “Fatman” Bogues battled top Ohio guards and impressed the crowd at the Pro Bound Sports Training Center and Complex with his complete game and flair. Bogues averaged 13 points and four assists for the weekend, scoring from beyond the 3-point line, on penetration, and setting up his teammates for easy baskets.
