KIPP Middle School had a Dominant Performance Against Long Middle

Kipp had a dominant win against Long. They jumped on them right from the opening tip led by #1 Christian Dixon and #22 Solomon Bratton. They resemble the old school duos of having a skillful guard and forceful big. Dixon is a crafty lead guard with the basketball IQ that will propel him to seeing varsity minutes in his freshman season. Bratton on the other hand is physical and powerful in the paint. The big man also showed he can put the ball on the floor in the open court. Bratton rebounds at a high clip along with being a disruptive force on defense. This 1-2 punch will be tough to beat in middle school and I can see them thriving and having fruitful high school careers.
