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 continue the series by taking a quick look at ten scorers. All stats referenced were provided courtesy of Legit Stats.
James Bishop is as tough a cover as you will find. The skilled 6-foot-3 lefty has deep range, but is also clever at finding room to operate and finishing inside the arc.
Known more for his defensive abilities, Cameron Brown showcased his offensive potential on Saturday. The 6-foot-5 wing, whose 33 points were the most by anyone in a game, has really become a consistent jump shooter, and his ball handling is getting better.
Ryan Conway averaged 19 points in his two games at the Metro Challenge. The skilled freshman was aggressive throughout the day.
One thing Josiah Freeman does well is move without the ball. Once he gets it, the 6-foot-4 guard knows exactly where the basket is, and finds a way to get it there quickly.
Anthony Harris possesses a unique blend of skill and explosiveness, which he used to make difficult scores look routine at the Metro Challenge. The 6-foot-4 junior averaged close to 15 points per game on the day.
Not the most athletic, but Chuck Harris is an aggressive scorer who applies constant pressure on the defense. He’s skilled, crafty, and deceptively quick.
Justin Moore is looking stronger, and very confident on the court these days. The skilled junior combo guard, who looks fully recovered from his torn ACL, averaged 20 points per game at the Metro Challenge.
Not only is he a knock down shooter from 3, but Casey Morsell utilizes the mid range jumper effectively as well. The 6-foot-3 guard owns a solid skill set, and is consistently aggressive in pursuing scoring opportunities.
Jeremy Roach only played in one game, but he still demonstrated how how explosive a scorer he can be. The skilled sophomore lead guard, who scored 17 points, put the ball in the basket efficiently from all three levels.
He wasn’t asked to score much during his sophomore year, but it looks like Myles Stute is ready to step up in that department next season. The Eagles will need his production, given the departure of seniors Myles Dread and Allin Blunt.
