Believe Sports Academy Wing Dontrell McQuarter: He may have had one of the top highlights of the entire tournament with a poster dunk through the lane on his defender. With nice athletic ability and a long wingspan, you can see why he catches the eye of college coaches. Offensively he is still raw and will need to improve his footwork but he had has very nice showing throughout.
Believe Sports Academy Forward/Center Idris Akinyemi: The 6’8 big man did exactly what you would want your center to do. He rebounded the ball well, blocked shots at a high rate, set good screens for his guard and played with maximum effort.
Beckley Prep Guard John Dawson: John is a natural scorer and it showed as soon as the game began. He got to the spots that he wanted and handled pressure very well, the upper body strength that is on frame only helps him to finish through contact and in traffic.
Believe Sports Academy Guard Joshua Ford: Joshua is a strong guard that doesn’t do any unnecessary dribbling to get to where he wants to go. He got into the paint at a high rate and made good reads once he forced the defense to collapse.
Beckley Prep Forward Jordan Shannon: If you’re looking for a player that can bang inside but also step out and score the ball from the wing then Jordan is your guy. He’s a very strong player but also has good lateral quickness and the height at 6’6 to play numerous positions.
Believe Sports Academy Guard Tae Hardy: Tae is 6’3 but his wingspan makes him look even taller, he understands how to use his physical gifts to excel but still stays within the team game plan.
Believe Sports Academy Guard Holton Summers: If you’re attempting to defend this young man, you better not give him too much space or things could get ugly. He has a nice smooth but quick release and is very efficient from three point range off the catch and off the dribble.
Beckley Prep Forward Connor Arnold: VMI has picked up a nice player in Connor as he has already committed to play basketball for the Keydets. At 6’8 with the ability to shoot the ball, he fits well into the stretch forward position offensively but can defend an interior post player.
