This weekend in Denver players put on scoring shows left and right. Get a look at what players scored the ball best!
Ronnie DeGray 2019 Billups Elite Wing
DeGray can score the basketball in a variety of ways at a high level. He excels at slashing or driving to the hoop using his athleticism, strength, and crafty moves to finish well. DeGray was one of the best scorers throughout the entire weekend.
Kenny Foster 2019 Colorado Hawks Wing
Foster was my favorite scorer to watch this weekend. He plays with great confidence, which reflects in his great shooting talents from three-point range. He expects every shot to go in and the more you watch him play you end up expecting the majority to fall. Foster has a swagger to him on the court. Foster is known for his jumper. It should also be noted that he can be successful scoring the ball when people run him off the three-point line. Foster used a crafty dribble to find holes in the defense on his drives. At the next level, Foster projects to the NCAA Division I Mid Major plus.
Kristion Johnson 2019 PowerHouse Hoops Nebraska Wing
Johnson was a scoring machine for PowerHouse Hoops Nebraska this weekend. He was at his best when PowerHouse Hoops Nebraska was running in transition. Johnson is a good slasher to the basket. He also can shoot the rock a little as well. Opponents struggled to guard him because of the many ways he can score the basketball well.
Ty Robinson 2021 Colorado Hawks Wing
Robinson first caught my eye with a poster dunk. The more I watched him play the more he showed me how good he was overall. Robinson scored the ball well from three-point range to go along with his strong finishes.
Kobe Stroughter 2021 Las Vegas Prospects Point Guard
Stroughter did a great job of creating off the dribble to get open looks in the paint. He is quick with a great handle of the rock. What was even more impressive was the amount of success he had considering he was playing at the 17U level. Stroughter projects to the NCAA Division I level.
Tanner Hecht 2021 SSA Elite White Guard
Hecht brought his hard hat Sunday morning going to work in his opening game scoring the ball from all three levels. He is not the most athletic Guard. The way he thrives scoring the rock is super crafty moves that create openings.
Luke O’Brien 2020 Colorado Miners Wing
O’Brien has a smooth handle of the basketball that helped him to find cracks in the defense. He has improved his strength, which helped him to finish strong inside. What makes O’Brien a top scorer from the action I saw is his stellar jumper from mid-range and three-point land. O’Brien will be a steal for the NCAA Division II program that lands his talents.
Brian Lang Jr. 2019 Las Vegas Prospects
Lang was one of the best scorers I saw on Saturday from three-point land. He has the skills to fire from deep at a moments notice, just waiting for a crack in the defense. He is also able to create his own shot with a solid handle of the rock.
Eman Sertovic Billups Elite Wing
Sertovic shot the ball extremely well in spot up and off the dribble situations. When he shoots you expect it to go in the basket. He plays with a high basketball IQ to add to his offensive firepower. Opponents struggled all weekend to slow him down because of how well he can create openings moving without the basketball.
Isaiah Tshimanga 2020 Colorado Premier Wing
He plays with a high motor for Colorado Premier. They ask him to do a little bit of everything for their 16U squad. Tschimanga was great at attacking the basket this weekend using his speed to blow past defenders. What makes him even tougher to guard is the great change of pace he throws in every now and then. Tschimanga was instrumental in the 16U Colorado Premier squad making a deep run in Denver!
Elliot Spencer 2020 Bounce Guard
Spencer lit the defense up early and often with his scoring skills. He was at his best firing from deep hitting shots consistently. Shooting is where Spencer makes his bread and butter, but he does a good job of mixing in a solid drive to the hoop. Spencer is a small college prospect.
Nate Lliteras 2019 PowerHouse Hoops Nebraska Wing
Lliteras is a 6’5 Wing that scored the basketball well this weekend. He featured strong drives to the hoop. When he gets inside the paint, Lliteras does a masterful job of using his length to help him finish well. He also put his three-point shot on full display. Lliteras projects to the NCAA Division II level, but I would not be surprised if he got some Low Major looks at the NCAA Division I level because of his length.
