11th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Classic

Orlando, FL – Operation Step Up INC. and Oak Ridge High School collaborated once again to host the highly anticipated 11th annual “Breast Cancer Awareness Classic“. This event drew teams and players from across the State of Florida, offering thrilling matchups and exciting displays of talent.

The standout game of the night featured a clash between Westminster Academy and Oak Ridge Academy, providing a thrilling game for the spectators. If an MVP were to be named for the event, my choice would undoubtedly be 2025 6’4” guard Alexander Lloyd from Westminster Academy. 

Lloyd’s consistent fiery presence on the court has become an expected norm. He exhibited remarkable comfort handling the ball, showcasing his deep shooting range with confidence. In the high-stakes matchup against Oak Ridge Academy, Lloyd’s impactful performance included 17 points, punctuated by two crucial free throws in the game’s closing moments, leading Westminster to a nail-biting 80-78 victory. 

Additionally, Alex Constanza, a 2026 6’8” small forward, contributed significantly with 19 points, sealing the game with crucial free throws, while DJ Wimbley, a 2025 shooting guard, also made a significant impact with 19 points.

Oak Ridge Academy, despite the loss, showcased spectacular performances from their roster. 2025 point guard Jalen Reece displayed exceptional shooting display, particularly in the first half, where his four 3-pointers in the opening quarter set the tone. Reece’s craftiness with the ball, combined with his threat from beyond the arc and playmaking abilities, established him as a premier point guard. 

Athletic, 6’6” 2025 shooting guard, Jamier Jones, found his rhythm later in the game, concluding with 13 points after a slow start. Notably, 2024 shooting guard Tyler Johnson was instrumental for Oak Ridge with an impressive 22 points, strategically positioning himself offensively to keep the game competitive.

The Breast Cancer Awareness Classic provided basketball action but also served as a platform to spotlight exceptional talents while promoting a noble cause. Here’s other players who stood out.

2024 Isaiah Brown, Orlando Christian Prep
