Those walking skyscrapers you saw in downtown Atlanta make up the Westminster basketball team.
The small private school has some big boys. Westminster’s roster boasts six players that are 6-foot-5 or higher — the tallest team in the Class AA program’s history, according to coach Daniel Searl.
The best of the giants is 6-6 swingman Maalik Reynolds, who has signed with Penn for basketball and track. Reynolds, who won the state championship in the high jump, showed off his hops in the Westminster Holiday Classic, won by the home team. Reynolds had a spectacular dunk over a player in the 43-36 win over Baylor (Tenn.) in the finals.
How are the tall boys doing this season? Westminster has a 6-3 record, including four wins in a row. The Wildcats will really find out how good they are over the next week, playing No. 6-ranked Decatur and No. 5 Blessed Trinity.
