Casey Prather Named MVP at River City Showdown

Casey PratherCasey Prather was named MVP at the River City Showdown AAU tournament. This tidbit from the championship game should be enough to make you drool.

With six minutes or so remaining in the River City Showdown 17 and under championship game the 6’5 rising senior crossed up his defender and flew to the bucket for a two handed devastatingly nasty flush.

The momentum seemed to be the spark to propel the Nashville Celtics past the Louisiana Future 84-77 and bring home the ‘ship from inaugural event.

Reading through TN Prep Hoops’ updates throughout the tournament, it seems like Prather routinely scored 20 points or so per game while carrying the Celtics. The mission is still to get Prather on campus and you can be sure that the Michigan staff is doing everything in their power to try to make that happen.
