Jan. 16 (UPI) -- LaMelo Ball put an exclamation point on SPIRE Institute's win against Brush High School by draining a half-court shot in the final seconds. The youngest Ball brother was dribbling down the court with about 10 seconds remaining as his team held a 79-61 advantage.

Jan. 6 (UPI) -- Duke freshman phenom Zion Williamson added yet another dunk of the year candidate to his arsenal during a thrashing of Clemson.
