The Stock Up Showcase in Westminster on Sunday featured dozens of players with wide arrays of talent. As such, our evaluations have been broken down by specific skill sets exhibited by those in attendance.
We’ll have new evaluation pieces throughout the week. Next up, a look at the players who most impressed with their abilities to knock down shots on a consistent basis.
Brett Giesking, So., Overland: He certainly wasn’t afraid to shoot the 3-pointer on Saturday, nor should he be. The sophomore was also adept at moving without the ball in the rhythm of the play in order to find open spots on the floor from which he could do his damage.
Alec Muehlemeyer, Jr., Faith Christian: When he was able to work his way open, he didn’t miss often. At 6-foot-2, he was able to shoot from distance and was able to get his shot off against closing defenders, adeptly utilizing ball fakes or a quick dribble to create shooting space when necessary.
Jackson Lamb, So., Dakota Ridge: The Eagles have a lot to look forward to over the next few years with this guys continuing to grow into a talented scorer. At the Showcase, he knocked down a number of 3-pointer to portend what may be coming in his junior and senior seasons.
Noah Lewis, Jr., Legend: Lewis is a strong shooter who consistently knocked down open looks Sunday. Also showed promise as the ball-handler in pick-and-roll situations, reading the defense and making on-time, on-target passes.
Payton Egloff, So., Regis Jesuit: Egloff seemingly couldn’t miss from the outside. Whether it was in the catch-and-shoot, dribble pull-up or any other fashion of release, the sophomore splashed with great consistency in all three games he played. Showed good ball-handling ability, making the right plays when doubled.
Christian Davis, So., Mullen: Amid an impressive overall day, the 5-11 Davis consistently knocked down shots from the outside, demonstrating an ability to pull up quick and release coming off the ball as well.
Avery Rembao, So., Loveland: The 6-4 Rembao was among the most versatile players on the floor Sunday. As one of the taller players there, he was comfortable protecting the rim, controlling the glass and cleaning up inside. But he also demonstrated an ability to step out and knock down an outside shot. Good overall day.
Zander Jones, Jr., Golden: Jones, a 6-0 guard, displayed good shooting form, with a balanced stance and clean vertical release. He has good form off the catch as an outside shooter.
Jake Hice, Jr., Gateway: The 6-1 guard demonstrated a nice pull-up jumper that he hit with consistency. Does a nice job running to a spot in transition and is quick to get his shot off once the pass comes.
