Another undefeated team in Dallas was Playaz Basketball Club, riding their all-star combo guard Isaiah Briscoe to a 4-0 record. Briscoe displayed why he’s been an elite recruit since middle school, showing off an improved all-around game, especially in the rebounding department. The 6-foot-3 combo guard put up the season’s first triple-double, recording four impressive stat lines:
vs. NY Lightning: 27 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists
vs. Jackson Tigers: 18 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists
vs. NorthWest Xpress: 23 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, 5 steals
vs. MeanStreets: 18 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists
As the on-court leader for the Playaz, Head Coach Jimmy Salmon depends on his physical guard to set the tone. In the four wins, Briscoe averaged 23 points, 9.3 rebounds, 7.3 assists & 2.3 steals. The fact that he is no longer just a scorer is a scary thought for future opponents. Indivisible Hoops beat reporter Brian Hershman walked away impressed, detailing the importance of Briscoe’s scoring.
“Isaiah Briscoe earned the MVP of this weekend,” Hershman said. “There will be debate about whether or not he is a point guard because of how well he scores it, but regardless, leading your team to a 4-0 record in an EYBL session is a point guard-like quality.”
It really doesn’t matter what position he is, Briscoe is a proven do-it-all guard that knows how to win. He can dominate the game in so many ways, that Salmon put it simply, “He’s the most complete guard in America.”
