|Shemar Morrow-6'0 WF Aurora 2020|
In the world of elite middle school basketball, sometimes money is no object when it comes to competing for championships. Case in point, a couple of times this winter two Ohio middle schoolers have been on one hell of a roller-coaster ride courtesy Master P and his P. Miller Ballers. Sixth graders Shemar Morrow (6’0 WF Aurora) and Devon Hightower (5’3 WF Aurora) have recently been running with the California-based P. Miller Ballers in a couple of elite events on the west coast. One such event was the Open Gym WCE25 OCSD Challenge where the Ballers ran through the competition on their way to the title.
For middle school basketball fans, Morrow is widely recognized as the top player not only in Ohio, but in the nation in the class of 2020. He is so talented that Rapper Master P is financing his and trips out west to play for his team. Miller’s investment is obviously paying off with MVP performances by Morrow, solid play from Hightower and 2 championships since the pair have been playing with the team. For the record, the P. Miller Ballers were already a quality team, but the addition of Morrow and Hightower, the team is dominate, and the favorite to win any tournament they enter.
|Master P With Players|
This is not the first time Master P. has involved himself in travel basketball. Several years ago Miller financed a team for his older son, Little Romeo who also accumulated some of the top players in the country. Like his current squad, Master P spares no expense in recruiting and bringing in some of the top talent in the country, regardless of where they live. This time around, Morrow and Hightower get the opportunity to run with Miller’s younger son, Hercy Miller, as well as other talented guys like Fred Burton and Jay Taylor.
With 2 championships under their belts already this year, the P. Miller Ballers are poised to make major noise in the upcoming NYBL season, which tips off in Washington DC in March. Although Morrow and Hightower will be running with the Ohio-based King James Shooting Stars in the NYBL, you can bet Master P. will find replacement players to take up some of the slack left by the departure of Morrow and Hightower, and will be a favorite to win a NYBL National Championship.
