Yesterday, we were in attendance for Stevenson’s annual team camp where teams from all over the state of Maryland came to compete. It’s a great chance to not only catch up on top players from around the area, but also find some diamonds in the rough from under-the-radar type of leagues.
Throughout, we saw plenty of skilled guards. Here are a handful to start this series.
Dave Brown | 6’3 | McDonogh 2021
McDonogh has a slew of new and young players that will make them an exciting watch this season in the MIAA A Conference. One big addition was Dave Brown, who is a transfer from St. Mary’s Ryken. Brown is coming off a productive AAU season with Team Durant and looks to carry that production over for the Eagles. He did so be leading in the scoring column with 13 points in a win over Poly in their first game of the day. Brown shot it well from three, finished in transition efficiently, and made good decisions with the ball.
Drew Green | 6’3 | McDonogh 2019
While Green didn’t shoot it well, he had a productive day when it came to finishing around and over the rim. In particular against Poly, Green made sure to get out in front of the defense in transition and finished with a dunk whether or not someone was in his way. He also was a solid presence on the glass, which is an area where McDonogh will need him to be active this season.
Max Murray | 5’11 | Atholton 2019
Murray shot the ball efficiently from deep throughout his team’s three games. Even when he caught fire, he wasn’t looking to force any shots. Instead, he’d find his opportunities within the flow of the offense. In their second game against Sandy Springs Friends, Murray broke his defender down off the dribble and finished a game-winning lay up as time expired.
Ben Uzelle | 5’10 | Sandy Springs Friends 2020
Uzelle is a guard who plays with a ton of energy. While he found his ways to score around the basket, each game he had a handful of assists or passes that either led to eventual baskets (hockey assists if you will). He set the tone for his team defensively by having active hands and communicating. His energy and activity was a great example of how his team as a whole played throughout the day.
