Birmingham Groves is having a historic football season this fall. The Falcons boys hoop troop will be pretty darn good on the hardwood this winter too. Last year, the Groves cage crew went 16-8 and grabbed a Class A district championship. TEAM WEST brings back a majority of its rotation and should be a frontrunner for the OAA Blue crown.
 
Groves 2017 BALLER&SHOT CALLER Watch List:
 
Julian Bell (G) – Plucky point guard, steady, consistent show-runner at the forefront of what should be a very potent Falcons’ offense
 
Marcus Pittman (G) – Let’s just start calling him ‘Swaggy P,’ ‘cause this a true playmaker on the perimeter with enough swag to make Kanye West jealous 
 
Drew Sheckell (F) – Inside-outside threat with few equals in the whole OAA, gobbles up double-doubles like a hungry family devours Thanksgiving dinner
 
Charles Jones (F) – Talented transfer from Detroit Renaissance, hardwood assassin on the wing, sleek and athletic with a very good motor
 
Donovan Tares (F) – Banger on the blocks, energy guy, durable and consistent
 
Mitch Pitts (G) – Soft touch from deep coming off the bench
 
Christian Williams (F) – Slasher specialist, rock-solid mid-range game
 
Offie Rashad (G) –Quality reserve at the point, smart, spunky, embraces his role
