Mt.Zion Forward Kevin O’Banor: Oral Roberts got a good one in this young man, he was constantly active throughout and scored the ball well from inside and midrange. We see many times that certain players like to shy away from contact inside but he is the opposite, he loves physical play and wants to dominate every matchup he gets.

Bishop Sullivan Wing Keith Holmes Jr: The Lee-Mcrae Bobcats coaching staff didn’t a great job in locking down this talented youngster very early on. This was the first time that I personally got to see him play but the energy, intensity and enthusiasm he plays with is very infectious for the rest of the team. He shoot the ball well from mid and three point range and brings the same amount of effort on the defensive end that he brings offensively. He finished with 22 Points in their matchup Friday night against Northwood Temple.

Bull City Prep Spencer Roberts: What is there not like about this young man? He’s 6’9 with a strong physique, good hands and shows consistently that he can plays against high level talent. Spencer rebounded the ball well, defends without fouling, and alters or blocks a nice amount of shots inside.

Bull City Prep Wing David Wingett: If you’re speaking on the topic of top shooters in the state, you would have to mention David. As Mark Jackson would say, this young man is a ‘‘Hand Down, Man Down’’ shooter. He knocks down shots at a very high rate from deep but does a good job of doing all of this while in the flow of the offense. D1 programs such as Delaware State have taken notice and extended scholarship offers to the 6’7 wing.

Garner HS 2018 Guard Marque Maultsby: He has good height for a Point Guard at 6’3 to go along with a nice wingspan and IQ for the game. He does a good job of setting his teammates up and is a very good defender , has picked up interest from schools at the D2 level.

Garner HS 2018 Forward Kenyon Burt: He’s 6’6 with a nice skillset and one of the highest motors that I have seen from in a while. He rebounds the ball well, finishes inside and doesn’t back down from any matchup.

Garner HS 2018 Guard Trayvon Ferrell : He is a special talent for sure, during their matchup with Greenfield he showed the total package of what he can do. He’s an athletic player that can score the ball with ease from all over the court, and would go on to finish with 32 points.

Bull City Prep Forward Sameko Cale: He has a very muscular frame and plays the game as if he loves any type of physical contact but is also very athletic. One attribute that I really like about his game is the way he uses his leaping ability on the defensive end. He had a high amount of chance down blocks as well as blocks coming off help side situations.

Northwood Temple 2018 Forward Ian Steere: He is still working to get fully back into top conditioning, but made some plays throughout and is a big piece of the Northwood Temple squad with the absence of Manny Bates. He is can shoot the midrange and deep ball as well as attack the rim, once he locks in and uses his size and strength to his benefit , he can be a really good one.

Cape Fear Christian 2018 Forward Milos Galogaza: A euro style big that excels mainly in pick and pop situations, he had an off shooting night but found ways to make himself available. He battled inside nicely and once he decides to attack the basket, it makes him that much more difficult to defend.
