Quinton Mincey, a class of 2020 forward out of Eleanor Roosevelt High School, was a standout at Hoop Group Elite Session 2. The versatile 6-foot-5+ rising junior, who was one of the best players in the NBA West Division, dominated the competition and proved that he belonged in the NBA East with all of the top players. Mincey recently discussed his overall game among other topics during a recent interview with Prep Hoops.
PH: For those who haven’t seen you play, how would you describe your overall game?”
QM: “I would say I’m a slasher. I’m a wing forward that can do it all. I can defend. I can rebound. I bring energy.”
PH: What’s the most improved part of your game?
QM: “Definitely my jump shot. I don’t like shooting a lot of threes. I’m more of a mid-range shooter.”
PH: What’s the most underrated part of your game?
QM: “Definitely my defense. Despite my height, I’m quick on my feet. Once my opponents step in front of me, they find that out fast.”
PH: What do you need to work on?
QM: “Definitely expanding my game. Scoring from all three levels on a consistent basis. If I can do that, I will become a more dangerous player.”
PH: How are your grades?
QM: “I have a 3.2 cumulative GPA.”
PH: What’s your role going to be like during the upcoming high school season?
QM: “We don’t know the starting lineups yet, but I’m a potential starter. I should come out with energy. Score when needed to. Just be the guy that does the dirty work.”
PH: What do you think you can bring to a college program?
QM: “I’m just a versatile player. I don’t need to score to be effective. I’m not a guy that has to put up 30 a night to make noise on the court.”
