Does any college need a basketball player?
Well Austin Gordon, Brian Cobb and Tre' Bryant showed they are more than capable of playing on the next level Saturday night in the PAL Senior All-Star basketball showcase.
The big surprise might have been the 6-6, 205 pound Gordon, who got lost amid a struggling Manatee High basketball team last season.
Gordon showed his mettle in winning MVP honors with a spectacular performance that included 15 points, 16 rebounds, 7 blocked shots and a few highlight reel dunks while connecting on 7 of 11 field goal attempts.
Cobb missed nearly the entire season at Lakewood Ranch coming off ACL surgery. But the 6-6 swingman looked like he is close to getting back to form with 13 points and 13 rebounds.
Bryant, who played all season, showed his deadly accuracy from 3-point land in filling up the nets with a team high 22 points that included 14 in the second half. He was 4 for 8 from beyond the arc.
