Overhills HS Junior Guard Zavian McLean: The fact that he still does not have any scholarship offers at this point is pretty baffling to be honest. Prior to this game he went for 30 points in a matchup with South View HS and would go on to score 23 points in this game vs Terry Sanford. He is a tremendous athlete that can score through traffic and plays the passing lanes to get steals and out into transition. What impressed me the most is that even though he clearly is the focus of defensive schemes, he still finds ways to get buckets by using his IQ as well as a very high motor to make plays.
Terry Sanford HS Senior Wing Gabe Harbison: The Bulldogs got a bigtime night from their unsigned senior wing as he finished with 20 points. Early in the 1st half he went down with a minor ankle injury but came back and played well, knocking down outside shots and acting the rim. D3 programs have expressed very high interest including William Peace University.
Terry Sanford HS Senior Forward Holt Walker: Fayetteville Tech Community College dropped in to see him play and they left impressed enough to extend an offer to him following the game. At 6’5 with the ability to stretch the defense he had some solid moments and finished with 9 points.
Overhills HS Senior Guard Latrell Lloyd: A two sport athlete that excels on the football field, he plays the game of basketball like a running back by finding the gaps in the defense. He was very active on the defensive end of the floor and came up with some steal/forced turnovers throughout the game.
Overhills HS Junior Guard Pedro Gama: He can flat out shoot the ball, and doesn’t need a ton of space to be able to get his shot off. The area where he is most efficient is in catch and shoot situations, he knocked down shots from midrange and deep.
Terry Sanford Junior Guard DJ Herz: His numbers won’t jump out at you but he provided some very timely buckets for his squad. It seemed as if every time his team needed him to make a play or knock down a shot to break a run, he would make a play.
Overhills HS Freshman Guard Cinque Lemon: One of the youngest players on the court but has a very high amount of upside to him. Already he’s about 6’3 with a nice wingspan and doesn’t second guess himself about shooting the ball, he will only get better as time goes on.
Terry Sanford Sophomore Wing Yates Johnson: This wasn’t particularly his best showing but he still found ways to be an impact player even when he wasn’t scoring the ball. His 6’5 height along with mobility, allows him to defend multiple positions he also possess a nice overall IQ for the game.
Overhills HS Junior Forward Jaylen Moore: His 8 points doesn’t necessarily describe what he brings for his team, if you watch him for a few moments you can see that his motor and rebounding is where he makes the most impact. Regardless of the size of the opponent he battles inside and does his part to help his squad.
Terry Sanford Junior Guard Dante Bowlding: Another player that didn’t put together an outrageous stat line but was very efficient with the minutes and touches that he got. His jumpshot from midrange was automatic and he was solid handling the different types of pressure he faced without turning it over too often.
