Emoni Bates and Javaughn Hannah are two of the more impressive middle school basketball players you will ever see, both of them possess elite size, skill and athleticism. It is no surprise that when they play together, even against elite competition, they are still dominant.
Bates and Hannah competed maybe the best dunk you will ever by two eighth graders.
While in transition, Bates threw an under the leg alley-oop pass to Hannah who caught it and threw it down with one hand. The degree of difficulty on that play is something some NBA players would have trouble finishing.
Bates is regarded by many as the best eighth grader in the country because of his size and overall game. Hannah is a fast riser in the class of 2022 and has been gaining a lot of exposure over the last couple of months.
Their have been rumors of them playing together in high school but those are just rumors as of right now, either way both of them should succeed playing at the next level if they continue to work hard.
