Jaylon Tate and Kendrick Nunn

State's top backcourt?
This fall Jaylon Tate looked like a different player while playing with his Simeon teammates. Tate confirmed to the Hoops Report he felt like a different player in a blog this past fall. He backed up that talk in the opening game of the season, an easy win over Georgia defending state champ Milton. Tate is so much more comfortable this season, playing free and easy and turned in as impressive of a four-point performance as one could have. Tate took care of the basketball and directed his team while showcasing his greatest strength -- passing the basketball. He had several pinpoint assists, finishing with nine for the game. While Morgan Park's Kyle Davis and Billy Garrett, Jr. will have something to say about this, the Jaylon Tate-Kendrick Nunn tandem is arguably the best in the state.
