Prep Hoops takes a look at some guards you might not be very familiar with from the Pee Dee part of the Palmetto State. 

 

 

Sabien Nero – West Florence HS  (pictured on front) 

Nero 6’0 left-handed guard has a very quick shot release. Nero is learning to play point guard this season for the Knights. Nero really uses the head fake well to draw defenders off the floor. Nero play this summer with Team Wall Southeast-Marion 2019 on the Grassroots Circuit. Nero averaged 13.4 ppg and 4.8 rebounds last season for the Knights (14-13). 

 

Maine Gibson – Wilson HS (Florence)

Gibson 5’6 play with a fearless attitude on the floor. Gibson came up big for the Tigers at times last season and helped them make a deep run into the playoffs. Gibson a strong left-handed isn’t afraid to dive on the floor for a loose ball. Gibson can knockdown the 3 ball from the perimeter. 

 

Rasheim Lyde

Rasheim Lyde – Timmonsville HS 

Lyde 6’3 is a physically gifted player. Lyde only played part of the season last season for the Whirlwinds. Lyde excels on the football field also and looks to be entertaining junior college after high school. Lyde has the ability to overpower defenders and generally shoots the ball best from 6-8 feet. Lyde averaged 14.4 ppg and 7.6 rebounds last year for the Whirlwinds. 

 

Direlle McGee

Direlle McGee – Kingstree HS 

McGee lost a lot of support from last seasons Jaguars team. McGee has a great nose for the ball and is a vocal leader on the floor. McGee 5’9 plays quarterback on the football team. McGee isn’t afraid to sacrifice his body and take a charge when called upon. McGee averaged 11.5 ppg last season for the Jaguars. 

 

Kenynon Scott

Kenynon Scott – Darlington 

Scott 5’11 is a undersized off guard for the Falcons. Scott has a nice-mid-range game and can shoot the ball from 3 point range. Scott can make tough shots at times on the floor. Scott could have a big season for the Falcons. Scott averaged 11.4 ppg last season for the Falcons.
