VIENNA, VA — The NOVA Cavs and LBA Attack squared off on Thursday night in front of about a dozen division three coaches, and Prep Hoops was fortunate to be in the gym as well. Here we recap this scrimmage by taking a closer look six superlatives.
BEST ATHLETE | IAN ANDERSON | LBA ATTACK
Ian Anderson almost posterized a defender when he drove down the lane late in the second half. This was a sign of not only his aggressiveness, but his athleticism.
BEST FUNDAMENTALS | DANIEL DEAVER | NOVA CAVS
There was no one who displayed better fundamentals than Daniel Deaver. The 6-foot-7 forward has solid footwork, uses ball fakes, and passes well.
BEST MOTOR | BRIAN AKA | NOVA CAVS
Brian Aka gave amazing effort on the ball defensively. He picked up full court, sat in a low stance, and kept his hands out in the passing lanes. Aka played with great emotion.
BEST PASSER | STERLING ANTHONY | LBA ATTACK
Lost track of the number of times Sterling Anthony delivered a “good pass.” The skilled guard knew where to find his teammates after breaking down the initial defender.
BEST SHOOTER | MATIAS PROCK | NOVA CAVS
Matias Prock demonstrated close to a knock down jump shot from three point range. He shot it well both off the dribble and from the catch.
BEST UNDERCLASSMEN | LANDON HAWES | LBA ATTACK
As the only class of 2020 prospect in attendance, Landon Hawes more than held his own. He’s got good size at close to 6-foot-4, and is already finishing through contact.
