The East vs West Showdown took place this weekend in Sand Springs. Several players increased their stock with big games on the court. One player particularly is getting ready to be recruited strongly by NCAA Division I programs. The standouts from the event are below!
Antonio Gordon 2019 Lawton Ike Post
Gordon dominated from the tip on Saturday night. He scored 37 points on over 50% shooting from the floor. Gordon stretched the floor with his jumper from three-point and mid-range. Inside he was fantastic with high percentage shots in the paint. Gordon brings a ton of energy to the floor, which helps him rebound well at both ends. The 6’8 Forward is going to start receiving a ton of interest from NCAA Division I programs. He may have an awkward shot, however, he has all the measurables of a good stretch four at the Mid Major NCAA Division I level.
Kinyon Parker 2018 Lawton Ike Wing
Parker is the three and defense guy for Lawton Ike. He has a good build to him, which helps him defensively tire out opponents. Parker hit big shots late in the game for Lawton Ike to help them cut into the Tulsa Memorial lead. An under the radar piece in his game is his ability to create his own shot. He is a prospect that will be perfect for a small college program.
Shemar Walker 2018 Tulsa Memorial Point Guard
Walker was the steady hand that led Tulsa Memorial to victory on Saturday night. Late in the game, Walker scored 6 points in the fourth quarter, which included 4 clutch free-throws. He can always be counted upon to run the offense efficiently. Walker is a team first guy that makes his squad better on both ends with the way he plays. Walker is projected to the JUCO to NCAA Division II level.
Kalib Boone 2019 Tulsa Memorial Post
Boone dominated in the opening half scoring 15 of his 21 points. He was super aggressive around the rim, which led to great success in the paint. Tulsa Memorial set the tone for the game with the aggressiveness of Boone on the offensive end. Defensively, Boone was solid making sure Lawton Ike felt his presence on the boards, and in the paint. Boone is projected to be a High Major NCAA Division I Post.
Craig Webb 2018 Tulsa Memorial Point Guard
He was great for Tulsa Memorial throughout the entire game on Saturday. He is one of the unsung heroes of this talented Tulsa Memorial squad. The balanced scoring of Webb might have ended up being the difference with his 12 points. Webb scored it well but was best at creating offense for others. He is a prospect for small colleges to keep an eye on.
Nate Pendarvis 2018 OKC Storm Point Guard
Pendarvis is an athletic Point Guard that thrives off the dribble getting to the rim. He did a good job of creating offensive openings with his quickness. Pendarvis scored 16 points and did a great job of sharing the ball to open teammates. Pendarvis is projected to the JUCO to NAIA Division II level.
Trez Hankins 2018 OKC Storm Wing
Hankins was great on Saturday for the OKC Storm. Why great you ask? It was not his best shooting night, however, he still found a way to be successful scoring 12 points. He did a great job of getting to the rim and running out in transition. Hankins is a good shooter from three-point range. Hankins is projected to the JUCO level.
DJ Sims 2018 Lawton Christian Point Guard
Sims was terrific for Lawton Christian using his quickness to burst past defenders. He is a small Point Guard around 5’7 that gave HFC a bunch of trouble getting to the rim. He finished the day with 35 points to lead the way for Lawton Christian. Sims has improved his shooting this year and showed off his shot knocking down 6 three-point shots. Sims projects to the JUCO to NAIA Division II level.
Jeremiah James 2018 HFC Warriors Wing
James is a strong, athletic, 6’2 Wing that thrived with the ball in hands. As the go-to option for HFC with Traejon Davis out, James scored a team-high 24 points. James did all of his damage from inside the three-point line. He was at his best from mid-range and getting to the hoop. He is projected to the NAIA Division II level.
Matthew Boatner 2019 CYM Academy Wing
Boatner is a 6’2 big bodied Wing that gave the OKC Storm some trouble in the second half. He thrived off the dribble knocking down the mid-range shot. When opponents started to close out on his shot, Boatner did a good job of using a nice floater. Boatner is a prospect NCAA Division II programs should keep on the radar.
