T of C's Boatwright Ready To Make Waves

Villiage Christian's Bennie Boatwright will play in Springfield's Tournament of Champions.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Tournament of Champions: A weekend at JQH Arena full of the nation's rising stars, and in most cases, these stars have never stepped in the "Show-Me" state before.


"Yeah, it's a little cold but i will get used to it."


Meet Bennie Boatwright, a Ccalifornia kid with a passion for the game of basketball.

"I just love playing it. I just love the game. It's just fun playing, hearing the ball bounce, going through the net and just being with friends."

The 6'9'' junior guard has already caught the attention of college blue blood programs like Arizona, UConn, Kansas and UCLA.


"I am just going to work hard and try to be a key player. And each and everyday I am going to try and improve and help my other teammates get better."

"You know he really has a high ceiling. The sky is the limit for that kid. It will be interesting to see kind of where he goes beyond college because he's got a chance to be a special player."

It's a scary thought for opposing benches and a happy one for the fans, the boatwright's don't stop with Bennie.\

"Yeah, Ii have got a little brother. He is going to be pretty good. He is working hard, so I am trying to groom him."

What makes Bennie so dangerous is that he is a 6'9'' guard. Plus, there's more to his game than his height and his touch.

"What he brings to our team is a great will to win. He really cares about his team more than anything else, than his stats."

Boatwright and his Village Christian team look at this weekend as a chance to imporve by playing the best competion.

"There the top teams in the county. Nothing else to say. We are just going to go out and play hard. We can't expect anything, just to go out and compete and see what the outcomes going to be."
