Tindley

Eric Hunter – 6’3 SG – 2018 (Committed to Purdue)

This was definitely not Hunter’s best night. He struggled with the height of University and when he was in the lane he struggled to finish. His jumper didn’t look bad as he made a few but he didn’t really dominate like he usually does. Just struggled with the height tonight but made a few plays. Will be good in college, just may need a year. – 22 points, 5 rebounds

Sincere McMahon – 5’10 PG – 2020

McMahon looked really good tonight doing everything you need out of a young guard He struggled shooting the ball a bit but other than that was really solid. He scored the ball well, but just had some mistakes that you’ll see from a sophomore. A very solid kid who will only get better once he looks to score a bit more. – 11 points

KJ Coleman – 5’11 PG – 2018

Coleman is a solid guard who can really score but at times looks really passive. He scores the ball but dribbles it too much around the perimeter. In a college offense, he could be really good because he is able to score at all three levels. He has pretty solid vision and would be able to stay on the ball in college.

 University

David Howard – 6’5 SF – 2018

Howard is a tall lanky forward who could use some added mobility. He is on the slower side but he can still fill it up. A slow release on his shot but it’s hard to block since he releases it so high. He could be a project piece in college and really needs to work on his mobility. Overall, he’s a very solid player who could do well at a D3 school. – 15 points

Zack Hodgin – 6’2 SG – 2018

Hodgin played well tonight and showed me tonight that he is a really god defender. He was tasked with face guarding Eric Hunter and stopped him pretty well. He Is solid on the offensive end and has really good vision. On one play, he grabbed the ball and instantly threw a full-court pass for a lay-up. A solid kid who could be a steal at a small school – 8 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists

Foster Flamion – 6’4 SF – 2018

Flamion is a guy who can take his man off the bounce but can’t really get around him. He is able to get to the paint and use a little jump hook shot with his right hand to score the ball. He’s another big wing on this team. See’s the floor really well as he added three assists as well. ­– 10 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists

Josh Watson – 6’4 SF – 2018

Watson struggled a bit in this one but is an ultra-quick wing who plays really solid defense. He didn’t let his many get anything easy. Watson did miss a few easy shots but overall was pretty solid in the game. A good defender on the perimeter as well. – 7 points, 2 assists
