This past weekend and for most of the month of June, players return to their high school teams to bond and compete in camps across the state. Here, we take a look at some of the best finishers from the Metro State camp.
Darius Hornbuckle-Thomas Jefferson
Darius is mostly known for his shooting so seeing him attack the rim and not settling for just outside jumpers make him a bit more dangerous and shows his progression as a player. With a bit more weight over the summer and wanting to continue to grow as a inside-out player, he could become even better come regular season.
Liam Romero- Grandview
Liam has been out to prove that he is indeed a top player in has class and have silenced doubters with his play to start the summer. This past weekend was just another chance for him to show that as he kept the defense on their heels and finished at the rim with either hand in traffic.
Kwaheem Brown – Lincoln
On top of being a match-up nightmare on the weekend based on how many different positions he can play, he was aggressive every time he touched the floor especially at the rim throwing down countless dunks. He uses his body well and showed off his ability to finish thru contact in the lane.
Bryson has made improvements every summer but this is the year where its all starting to come together. He can get to the rim off the dribble at will and finish thru contact. Once he gets better on passing out of the post in traffic after penetrating the defense he will be an even tougher cover.
Christian Speller- Rangeview
Christian is well known for his playmaking ability at the rim, but now that he has more control when attacking the rim, it makes him more of a threat. He also is a tweener, so he has big men guard him most games which forces a lot of help side defense that allows him to kick it out for open 3’s.
TJ Bamba- Lincoln
On top of being in our most improved players list, TJ showcased that he can play above the rim and that was on display for most of the weekend. TJ’s ability to dive to the basket gave him a lot of open dunks but what goes unnoticed is his offensive awareness and ability to read the defender on the fly which separates him from other players.
