Posted On: 06/22/18 10:15 PM

Day two of the 2018 Jerry Peters Memphis Summer Classic was probably better than day one. More and more players from each school are starting to emerge in the forefront as elite prospects for college basketball programs and important pieces to their high school team’s success for the 2018-19 season.

Like Thursday night, there were only a selective group of players that were chosen as the best on the court. After Friday’s action, it was hard to pick just four players, so here’s a longer list of the talent that stood out from day two at Memphis University School:

  1. Senior shooting guard Jalen Cincore, Bartlett: The 6-foot-5, 170-pound Bartlett, Tennessee native had a game-high 26 points to go along with his six rebounds in a 64-59 loss to the East High School Mustangs. Cincore’s 3-point shooting kept the Panthers in it throughout the game. He was a touch matchup for East.
  2. Jeremiah Miller, Southwind: With the Jaguars’ best player, Kamron Jones, on the bench after getting ejected for throwing blows with Lausanne’s Alden Applewhite, Miller had to lead the offense. He finished with 27 points and two assists to help Southwind get the 60-51 victory. Jones finished with 11 points, five rebounds, and one assist.
  3. Senior guard/forward Sky Forest, Lausanne: He added 17 points, six rebounds, and four assists in the nine-point loss to the Jaguars. Forest will not play on Saturday as he’s going on a visit to Campbell University in North Carolina this weekend.
  4. Sophomore point guard Kennedy Chandler, Briarcrest Christian: The 5-7 guard led the Saints with 20 points, two rebounds, and four assists in the 61-52 win over Centennial.
  5. Senior forward Malcolm Dandridge, East: The 2019 University of Memphis commit continues to play well in the classic, adding a double-double (15 points, 11 rebounds) to his stat line in the 64-59 win over Bartlett.

Honorable mention

There were four guys who deserved some praise even though their stat line wasn’t as impressive as the four studs above. East sophomore combo guard Jalen Brown had a solid outing against the Panthers, putting up 14 points and pulling down two rebounds. The Mustangs’ senior guard Antonio Thomas provided 14 points, five rebounds, and two assists. Before the short-lived brawl with Jones, Applewhite finished with 11 points, four rebounds, and two assists for the Lynx.

White Station’s sophomore forward Willie Foreman added nine points, six rebounds, and four assists in a 55-51 loss to Covington. He’s the biggest player in the starting five for the Spartans, standing at 6-4, and he’s not done growing.
