10 more prospects that stood out at Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions this past weekend at Suwanee Sports Academy.
Chico Carter did not start out strong in Team Charlotte’s first game. Jeff McInnis was all over him in the first half. Carter responded to the toughness and made plays in the second half. I like to see that. Handle the adversity and take care of business
Team South Carolina
6’5 Chase Claxton of Team SC has an ability to block/alter shots at his size that is hard to find. Plays so much bigger than his 6’5 frame. Showed he can knock down the mid-range jumper.
Really like the competitiveness Russell Jones brings for Team SC. With new head coach Ty Baumgardner at Westwood he will flourish. He knows a thing a two about “small guards”. Had Reggie Arceneaux who had a great career at Wright State.
Impressed with 6’6, wing Zach Anderson of E1T1. Athlete, slasher, High-Riser, long, Almost through down a dunk that would have sent the gym into a frenzy.
