Here are some Standout Players from Friday Nights action at Legacy High School.
#2 Taeshaud Jackson Jr. — Colorado Knights Elite 15U
Taeshaud was the player that stood out most on the opening night of the Spring Kickoff. He was the defensive anchor as he changed countless shots at the rim and also played the passing lanes well. On offense he was patient and let things come to him which resulted in easy baskets at the rim
#35 Julain H. — Billups Elite 14U
Julian was hard to deal with on Friday night as he attacked the boards and went through players to finish with contact. He made sure the team got extra possessions and although he was limited due to foul trouble, was able to make a difference. Heading into the bracket portion, I fully expect him to stay out of foul trouble and impact the game with his defense while sustaining the success he had on the boards.
#1 Sam Howry — Pluto Prospects 14U
Sam showed great patience in a game that was down to the wire against a very tough Billups team. His offensive play is what gave his team the edge toward the end with drive and kick plays for open mid-range jumpers and he also was able to attack the basket to draw the foul. By the time game was over he probably ended with 15 free throw attempts and that showcases his aggressiveness on the offensive end.
#32 Luke Williams — Colorado Hawks 14U
Though he is small in size, he makes up for it with heart. Luke pushed the pace every possession for this young talented Hawks team that should have a pretty good summer. He has an older feel and game that is mature for his age and that’s what will separate him. Luke will be a player to keep an eye on as he continues to progress.
#5 Alex Hurr — Colorado Anarchy
Alex cause’s issues for opposing teams with his shooting. In the opening game, he consistently knocked down open jumpers which spaces out the floor and creates for others. With him being one of the primary ball handlers it makes it difficult for the other team to defend them as if they don’t close out he’s able to get to the rim. If they do he has the playmaking ability to find the open man.
