During his high school days at the famous Oak Hill Academy in Virginia, Brandon Jennings was one of the most highly-touted prospects. In his senior year he averaged over 32 points per game, along with over 7 assists per outing as well. It resulted in Jennings receiving a number of awards, including Naismith Prep Player of the Year. It was after his impressive time at Oak Hill that Jennings professional career began in Europe, where he began his partnership with Under Armour Basketball.

Jennings has made it habit to not forget where he came from, as earlier this year he revamped the Compton Double Rock Learning center and basketball courts in the neighborhood he grew up in. To continue on with that, and pay tribute to another of Brandon’s stepping stones, Jennings former school Oak Hill Academy, Under Armour has created a white, red and gold colorway of Brandon’s first signature model, the UA Micro G Black Ice. The low-cut version of the Micro G Black Ice features patent red around the toebox and a white leather upper. Aside from the Oak Hill matching colors, underneath the transparent shattered ice outsole resides the team’s Warriors labeling, also done in the red and gold. Brandon’s signature is stitched into the underside of the tongue label as the finishing touches.

Brandon Jennings is on the verge of leading the Milwaukee Bucks into the playoffs for the second straight year. Currently, the Bucks sit a couple of games out of the eighth spot in this year’s standings, in large part thanks to the 15.4 points per game and 4.9 assists per game that Jennings is averaging.

Earlier this season, Brandon Jennings and Under Armour launched the young star’s first signature shoe, the UA Micro G Black Ice. Brandon has been seen in a number of colorways throughout the season in our Sneaker Watch coverage, but earlier this week he took to the court in a new colorway against the Knicks.

The colorway of the Micro G Black Ice comes is a black-based version with red and white details. A red midsole separates the translucent outsole from the black upper, while the toebox is wrapped in white patent that is boldly displaying the Under Armour logo in metallic silver. Cushioning duties are handled by Under Armour’s Micro G cushioning, which creates not only step-in comfort, but also responsiveness to keep up with a player like Jennings.

Wednesday night in Washington, the Wizards and the Milwaukee Bucks faced each other in a matchup that put two of the future’s brightest point guards up against one another: John Wall and Brandon Jennings. The Wizards’ home court has been the only place they’ve been able to put up wins this season, and thanks to a big game from Wall, they were able to overcome a shortage of players to grab their 14th win of the season. John Wall had 15 points, six assists, seven rebounds, two steals and a block in his Reebok Zig Slash sneakers. For the Bucks, Brandon Jennings led the way in scoring with 20 points, but struggled from long distance, going just one-for-six. Jennings added four assists, five rebounds and three steals, but it wasn’t enough to keep up with Washington.

In other Sneaker Watch spottings from Wednesday, Gilbert Arenas once again grabbed attention for the Magic, this time hitting the court in the Under Armour Micro G Lite. Out in the Western Conference, it was rookie DeMarcus Cousins who broke out a pair of the Jordan Retro 2 that grabbed some looks. While Carmelo Anthony’s colorway of his signature Melo M7 has us wondering how long he’ll be wearing the University Blue accent colors.
