VIDEO: Oklahoma student with special needs makes most of first basketball start

Jaden Barnes is a 16-year-old team manager for the Harrah basketball team in Oklahoma. He’s also a student with Down Syndrome at the school, and has dedicated himself to the sport and his team without any reservation.
On Saturday all that commitment and hard work was repaid with a first career varsity start for Barnes, who immediately made the most of his opportunity.
Barnes was given the start for Harrah’s game against Bethel, and not only received the ball off the opening tip off, but scored the game’s first bucket with a perfect jump shot just inside the key.
That opening sequence wasn’t the start of Barnes’ glory night, though

Louis King leads Hudson Catholic past John Carroll, Immanuel Quickley

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Louis King is going to be part of a dynamic duo with Bol Bol when he heads to Oregon in the fall. But on Monday at the Hoophall Classic, he and Ohio State commit Luther Muhammad showed they are already a dominant pairing in a 71-58 win for Hudson Catholic over John Carroll.
