Keifer Sykes Of Green Bay Phoenix Subject Of New Mixtape

Chicago native Keifer Sykes is the subject of a new mixtape put out by the folks at Ball Is Life, a group that normally produces mixtapes for high school players.

Sykes, a 5-foot-11, already began rewriting the Phoenix record book as a junior last season. He set a new school single-season record with 188 made free throws in 2013-14 and with 415 through three seasons, Sykes has already broken Tony Bennett’s career record.

Here’s the mixtape:

Last season, Sykes helped the Phoenix to a 24-7 record and the program’s first regular-season conference title since 1995-96. But Green Bay was upset by Milwaukee in the semifinals of the Horizon League tournament and then lost at home to Belmont in the first round of the NIT.

Sykes—the Horizon League’s Player of the Year—averaged 20.3 points, 4.9 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game last season, shooting .469/.309/.810 and earning an honorable mention on the Associated Press All-America list.
