Set Your Recorders For This One: Emoni Bates vs. Chet Holmgren

This should be a major blast.

Well this should be fun: ESPN has set up a game between Team Sizzle and Ypsi Prep. Why would that be of interest?

Well because the star of Team Sizzle is Chet Holmgren and the star of Ypsi Prep is Emoni Bates.

That pretty much guarantees a fun matchup even though we don’t know much about the other players involved. Those two guys look like major future stars so if you’re like us, you’ll want to see them. They’re both ridiculously skinny, but to be fair, they’re teenagers who grew extremely fast so odds are they will be thin for a while yet.

Also playing: in Game 1 (the feature game is Game 2) Mikey Williams from California but playing for Lake Norman Prep. And in Game 2, Amari Bailey and Jaden Hardy will get to know each other.

It should be a ton of fun so do whatever you need to to do to watch it. It’s scheduled for November 12th at 7:00 on ESPN2.
