Ramean Hinton boldly declared his ambitions for the season after Curie’s sixth game.
“Win Player of the Year, win state and win city,” Hinton said. “And win every tournament we play in and be the MVP.”
Most of the city’s great players want all those things, but would likely keep it quiet. That isn’t Hinton. He says what he thinks and plays with an unbridled passion and high energy.
The Southeast Missouri State recruit is a Sun-Times All-City first team selection. He’s averaging 17 points and eight rebounds and the Condors are the current favorites to win the Class 4A state title.
Hinton is joined on the first team by Bogan’s Antione Bloxton (uncommitted), Illinois recruit Adam Miller of Morgan Park, Young’s DJ Steward (Duke) and Simeon junior Ahamad Bynum, a DePaul recruit.
