Posted On: 04/21/18 8:11 AM

Several players were able to impact the game in multiple ways to positively impact their team.


Jacob Thionnet 2019 Team Unity Wing

Thionnet scored the ball very balanced on opening night giving his team a significant boost. He is turning into a can’t miss small college prospect in the Oklahoma 2019 Class. The size of Thionnet at 6’4 on the Wing add to his talented skill set. He projects to the NCAA Division II level.

Payton Lusk 2020 Rockets 918 Wing 

Lusk was locked in from the get-go scoring the ball from all three levels at will. What most stood out was the confidence Lusk plays with at all times. He expects his shot to fall. Lusk is not just an offensive guy. The opposing team had to account for him on defense at all times as he seemed to make plays around the basketball all game long.

Christian Williams 2019 Arkansas Team Will Point Guard

Williams brought his hard hat and went to work on opening night. He had a great showing being effective on both ends of the floor. Williams is super quick, which helped him to be able to create off the bounce. He also was super active on defense. Williams projects to the small college level.

Nehemiah Boykins 2020 Ball 4 Life Wing

Boykins had a breakout game for the Ball 4 Life 16U squad. He put on a show bringing high energy at all times. Steals led to easy transition baskets all night long. Boykins has a good build with a high motor. He will be one for small colleges to watch in the future.

Cole Durkee 2019 Ball 4 Life Wing

Durkee was red hot on opening night from three-point range knocking down two early buckets from deep. Once he saw the ball go through the hoop he was unstoppable. Durkee has always been a good spot-up shooter. On Friday night Durkee was able to create his own shot off the dribble, which adds a lot to his game. The improvements Durkee has shown over the past year have been awesome. He projects to the small college level.
