Sinclair Summer League Thursday: Notes

The second night of the Sinclair Summer League played out at George Jenkins High in Lakeland.

George Jenkins beat a Santa Fe Catholic group with only seven players while Lakeland took down a new look Lake Gibson team.

Here is a peek at the top performances on the night.

Luke Anderson (Lakeland)

At 6’8″, Luke Anderson has always been a reliable threat as an outside shooter. Noticeably stronger, more assertive and determined, Anderson had his way down low against Lake Gibson all night long. He’s a really good driver and his effort level is always there. There are endless reasons why Anderson is a high Division I prospect. Iowa State, Iowa, Xavier and Rutgers have all been high on the 2019 forward lately. He’s able to play big or as a point guard and offensive setter.

Javon Bell (Santa Fe Catholic)

When Javon Bell gets going, he is awfully hard to slow down. The 6’3″ guard is a pure athlete who is at his best when he is shooting and getting his offense moving. Bell alongside his 2020 counterparts Joe Stubbs and Ray Davis can be a steady presence when focused in on the task ahead. He is a gifted dunker and underrated driver to the hoop.

Adarius Lee (George Jenkins)

An undersized point man, Adarius Lee doesn’t care that he is 5’8″. The 2020 guard handles the ball well, pushes the floor with ease and has the keen ability to glide by defenders for buckets inside. His speed is his best attribute and gives him an edge in most games.

Joe Stubbs (Santa Fe Catholic)

A dunker by nature, Stubbs can do plenty more on the court. The 2020 wing has long arms at his 6’4″ frame and does things that wow crowds on both ends of the floor. Much like his athletic teammate Bell, Stubbs feeds off the energy of his team and has the ability to get things going quickly.

Phillip Foster (Lake Gibson)

A 2020 guard/forward, Phillip Foster is going to be a key factor for a completely different Lake Gibson unit. He hit a 3-pointer to beat the halftime buzzer and had a couple of really nice takes to the rack, connecting on floaters. His shooting form isn’t polished, but he finds nice areas on the floor and is packed with energy.

Trey Lane (Lakeland)

Heading into his freshman season, 2022 guard Trey Lane will likely split time between JV as a starter and varsity as a bench piece. Lane has a nice frame with strong thighs and he is certainly due for another growth spurt soon. He plays the guard spot now and is good with the ball in his hands. Lane handled the pressures well when taking over the leadership role with Anderson on the bench.

Note: 2019 forward Reese Yothers transferred to Lakeland from Lake Gibson for his senior season.
