Tonight at Dublin High School, some of the biggest Senior stars in Northern California gathered for another all star classic courtesy of CaliHoop. From showtime dunks, flashy displays of dribbling, and step back threes, the players involved gave us a real treat. Here are some of the names that entertained the gym through the course of the game.
Mason Forbes (Folsom) 6’9
The long and elusive athlete who rocks the retro Shaun Livingston afro had the crowds attention from the moment warmups began. A nightmare in transition as he sprints down the lane on every opportunity. His instincts as a cutter allow him to find plenty of open space where he was able to throw down several dunks with ease.
Jayce McCain (Folsom) 6’2
This guard has an incredibly devastating ability to stop and start off of the bounce by selling his moves as well as any guard you’ll see. This ability to keep defenders on their heels sets up his step back jumper that falls with ease. Don’t let his light frame fool you as he is more than capable of finishing above the rim with powerful one hand smashes.
Jonathan Ned (Heritage) 6’7
If you follow the Golden State Warriors, you’ve probably heard former coach Mark Jackson say “Hand down, man down” when it pertains to leaving shooters uncontested. But with this player, the phrase should be “Hand up? Good Luck” because tight defense doesn’t effect him as much as it bothers others. His height allows him to effortlessly shoot over defenders with patience. When he wasn’t drilling jumpers, he displayed an ability to bring the rock up the floor as a playmaker for others.
Garrett Pascoe (Clayton Valley) 6’2
Usually known for having a coaches I.Q. for the game, this floor general was able to showcase other areas of his game. His change of speed helped him launch from deep. Garrett not only showed an ability to finish above the rim, but also prevented a few easy layups with chase down blocks in transition.
Dylan Belquist (Los Gatos) 6’6
One of the most electrifying athletes of the night especially in the events dunk contest. With an aerial arsenal of windmill dunks and lob catching, Dylan absolutely punished the rim. Also a solid shooter, he used his threat to light it up by attacking close outs with aggression.
