Looking To Redeem
After losing to North Central High School in the Regional State Finals five-star point guard Marquis Teague (Atlanta Hawks’ guard Jeff Teague’s little brother) is looking to redeem himself in the basketball world.
About three months ago Marquis Teague and Pike High School suffered a agonizing lost to the Panthers. I was at this game and felt the pity for top ranked guard Teague. After leading his team so far he failed them. Even though he scored 30 points on that misty Saturday moring inside the packed, loud, and legendary Hinkle Fieldhouse it is something neither he, Pike fans, or I will ever forget. He fouled out in the last minutes of the game with victory just a lick away. He slowly walked to the bench and realized he was done playing high school basketball. Now he is back and ready for a Championship with the Kentucky Wildcats. Look for him to flourish as point guard.
I dont know if Marquis has what it takes to be a NBA star after that loss, but we will just have to wait and see.
