Many of the city’s top high school players spend AAU season
travelling on the Nike EYBL circuit with Mac Irvin Fire or Meanstreets. While both teams feature some out of state stars like Romeo Weems from Michigan or Chicago native Kahlil Whitney, when these teams face-off (sometimes just once a year), it’s a WAR!
The last 17U game of the night at 2018 Nike EYBL session II near Indianapolis featured Meanstreets vs Mac Irvin Fire.
Mac Irvin Fire got out to an early lead behind 2019 stars Kahlil Whitney and Kansas commit Markese Jacobs.
New to the squad was point guard Chase Adams and athletic wing Terrence Shannon.
In the second half, Meanstreets led a comeback with TONS of free throws (40!).
Mac Irvin Fire had their chances in overtime, but Meanstreets knocked down their free throws, winning 83-80!
Kahlil Whitney scored 29 points, 6 rebounds. Markese Jacobs scored 16 points.
Meanstreets was led by Brandon Newman’s 19 points (12-13 FT), Arman Franklin (19 points) and Tray Jackson (17 points ,9 rebounds).
