It was a dominant week for 6’5 wing Myron Gardner, as he put up monster games against Muskegon and Old Redford. Hit the jump for fresh highlights of the fast rising 2019 wing.
The tremendous versatility of the 6’5 junior was on full display both games. On the perimeter Gardner showed great change of direction off the bounce, as he hit his defender with sudden crossovers to get separation before finishing at the rim while taking contact. Myron also excelled off-ball, knocking down catch and shoot triples with a fluid looking jumper. His most impressive shot from beyond the arch coming after jab-stepping his defender to get space before rising up and burying a three from the right corner. The athletic wing also used great verticality and motor to dominate the offensive boards repeatedly, finishing a tip-dunk that had the crowd buzzing at the Prep Ball Classic. Gardner also displayed a post game, backing his defender down before showing soft touch on a jump hook over his left shoulder. Myron is developing at a very high rate over the past year, and he’s now a three level scorer with the skill to match his tremendous athleticism and physical tools. See below for highlights.
