Beo, Murray Tip Off News and Notes

by Transition Hoops Report

Here is the first News and Notes of the 2014-15 season. Washington had a couple of the more impressive performances from players like Steven Beo, Dejounte Murray and Isiah Brown.

If you aren't familiar with News and Notes, it is a feature that Transition Hoops will update about once a week during the high school season. It summarizes the past week with some of the top performances that we come across, either from games we have watched or articles and scores from local papers. 

This week's list is pretty long, since it really has been more like 12 days since some states started their seasons. But, as always, if you see something we've missed that should be included, feel free to add it to the comments section.
