Yesterday, on Facebook Jalen Wsahington was getting feedback from his friends as to what shoes he should wear in last night’s games. As his boys gave their thoughts on fashion, I offered up a “just hoop, young brotha” comment. I don’t know what color or style he had on but it looks like he took my thoughts to heart as he gave the Hippos the business. 2011 G Jalen Washington had 32 points to lead the Hawks as they outscored Hutto by 12 points down the stretch, overcoming a one point deficit to win going away.
