San Diego State’s second session of its team camp proved to be a very telling weekend of basketball, both regionally and beyond.
In addition to standouts, there were a number of players who’s playmaking stood out.
Here’s a list of some of the best playmakers from the weekend that was.
Gharram’s passing ability is well documented, as the 6-2 floor general has impressive court vision and has improved his decision making. Gharram’s ability to create his own basket has opened up a whole new dimension for his team, giving them another big time scoring threat alongside Jaren Nafarette and Derrick Carter-Hollinger.
The wiry, crafty point guard has grown considerably over the year, reaching nearly 6 feet. He lulls defenders to sleep with good change of pace, and gets into the paint and makes nifty assists to cutting or flaring teammates. In addition, McCalla has deep range on his jump shot and has a quick enough release to get his shot off under duress.
Featured in our out-of-area standouts, Waller’s playmaking ability really shined this weekend, as he was able to set the table for teammates and keep the shorthanded Eagles in some games where they were seriously outmanned. The highlight of Waller’s weekend was hitting the go-ahead runner against Balboa School, only to see his effort negated by floater on the ensuing possession by Andrew Milot.
The 5-11 pass-first point guard won’t wow you with his metrics, but he has an extremely high basketball IQ, excellent feel and is super crafty with the ball. He uses changes of speeds to get into the paint, where he can finish with a nice package of runners and floaters. He delivers crisp passers into the shooters pocket, and makes the right pass almost all of the time.
The gritty, 5-9 point guard is longer, quicker and more athletic than given credit for, but his toughness stands out. Sevier gives maximum effort on the defensive end, and is relentless driving to the basket, where he can finish through contact or find open shooters off the drive. He’s also a very good shooter from the college three.
