Zion Griffin was one of the breakout basketball players of last summer’s AAU season. The Class of 2018 wing from Darien, Illinois played for Hoopers, an independent team, not affiliated with any shoe brands.
Although Zion never put up huge numbers playing at Hinsdale South (near Chicago) he elevated his game during AAU earning numerous high major offers, ultimately commiting to Iowa State.
Now a senior, Zion continues to light up the Chicago suburbs with his play despite much of it going under the radar as Hinsdale South has had an up and down season (or down and up).
Now Hinsdale South is nearing the end of its regular season and is contending for a conference title.
On the road at Leyden, Hinsdale South won convincingly 81-52 behind 21 points from it’s biggest star, Zion Griffin. He was a force at both ends.
Playing the 5 for his high school team out of necessity, Zion’s game might not look the same as he projects at the next level, but he’s still one of the most
exciting, athletic high school basketball players in Illinois. He’s a powerful dunker!
Check out these raw highlights from Hinsdale South’s road win versus East Leyden High School.
After the highlights, stay tuned for postgame comments from Iowa State basketball commit Zion Griffin about the game and about the role AAU basketball played in his young career.
