Here are some of the top Class of 2021 and 2022 players on hand at the final day of the Boost Basketball Summer League at McCluer South-Berkeley:
Demarcus Sanford 6’1″ Lift for Life ’21
A very talented and versatile offensive player who can really score. He can pull up from 3-point range, slash to the basket for buckets and get a lot done in the transition game. He has good length and he excels in his team’s full court pressure defense that produces a lot of tempo and opportunities for easy baskets.
Tyson Ford 6’4″ John Burroughs ’22
A young up and coming post player with a big body and an excellent set of skills around the basket. At a young age, he has some excellent post moves with good footwork and a nice jump hook that he finishes with ease. He also moves quite well as he had some impressive rim-runs over the course of the game.
Rico Singleton 6’0″ Lift for Life ’21
An real energizer bunny who brings a high motor and maximum activity at both ends of the court. On a team without much size, he epitomizes Lift for Life’s relentless pressure defense with his ability to create action at all times. He scores in transition, rebounds strong for a guard and really plays the passing lanes well.
Kellen Thames 5’10” Pattonville ’22
The son of former Mizzou standout Kelly Thames, the young combo guard had an excellent game against John Burroughs with 19 points, including four 3-pointers. He has a nice high-aching 3-pointer which he shoots with confidence. He is a solid ball handler with good fundamentals.
Eddie Weekly 5’11” DuBourg ’22
A slashing young point guard who sparked his team from a late 10-point deficit to a victory over Riverview Gardens. He has good quickness and has the ability to penetrate into the lane and score at the rim. He is also very solid in the open court as a passer and scorer.
Dampier Evans 6’3″ DuBourg ’22
An explosive young forward with a major upside down the road. He blocked four shots in a victory over Riverview Gardens, including a pair of 3-pointers, which was impressive. He runs the court like a gazelle and has quick jumping ability as well as his ability to explode.
