There's a dude I used to play with who used to play for his high school team back in California. He's only 5'9'' but was way stronger than he looked. He often posted you up, shot over you or did a dribble/crossover fake and blow by you. By far one of the hardest people I had to guard in college (all recreational, never played intramural either). He usually scored on me 70% of the time I defended him
and I often fouled him too but he usually let it slide and said "it's all good, it wasn't a hard foul."
