HYATTSVILLE, MD — The Fifth Annual Metro Challenge displayed some of the most talented players from across the DMV region. There was so much talent on display that we decided to break down our superlatives into different categories. Here we resume the series by taking a closer look at six glue guys. All stats referenced were provided courtesy of Legit Stats.
At 6’5+ with long limbs, Bobby Carson impressed in a variety of areas. The crafty wing looked to be consistently aggressive off the bounce, and his ball distribution was commendable.
Anwar Gill is a big guard who impressed with his ability to rebound. The 6-foot-4 lefty is also a good athlete with a high basketball IQ.
Dowar Jioklow‘s mentality has improved so much in the last 12 months, and it’s starting to reflect in his play. The 6-foot-8 sophomore, who is a good option to stretch the floor, also showed that he can rebound out of his area.
Paul Smith played very well at the Metro Challenge. The 6-foot-8 sophomore big man, who showed that he can score, defend, run the floor and rebound, should be in for a strong spring and summer with 16U Team Takeover.
Jordan Toles showed that he is a great athlete who defends, generally works hard, and is starting to become a much more consistent jump shooter. We like his aggressiveness in getting to his spots off the dribble and find good shots.
Jahmir Young continues to improve defensively, and his high IQ was evident on both ends of the floor. The skilled lefty also demonstrated the ability to create space off the dribble, and the confidence to make tough shots.
