Prep Hoops Missouri was in attendance at the Final Four of the Ramey Fall League playoffs on Sunday at Cardinal Ritter College Prep. Here is a scouting report at playoff semifinalist Mizzou.
Mario Fleming 6’3″ Cardinal Ritter (’21) – A physical wing player, Fleming scored a game-high 30 points in the semifinals against Illinois. He is a matchup problem because of his physical strength and ability to score around the rim. He combines that with his ability to beat defenders off the dribble. He is virtually automatic from inside 10 feet of the basket. He can post up and get buckets and get his share of three-point plays off the bounce.
Ryan Torrey 5’11” Soldan (’19) – One of the top perimeter shooters in the league, Torrey can knock down 3-pointers off the catch, but he also displayed the ability to create space off the dribble to get off his shot from long distance. He has improved at getting to the basket off the dribble, which included a couple of nice coast to coast drives for finishes in transition.
Gary Clark 6’6″ Cardinal Ritter (’20) – A much improved post player who is poised for an excellent junior season. He has good mobility and some solid post moves around the basket. He has a nice touch around the basket, including a very effective jump hook. His game continues to grow with each year.
Ali Keys 6’7″ Mascoutah, IL (’19) – A long, athletic post player who plays with great energy and a high motor at all times. He is at his best when he is rebounding and blocking shots. His offense is a work in progress, but he will throw down a dunk in traffic. He also plays defense with good intensity and effort.
Darnay McDonald 5’9″ Riverview Garden (’21) – A thick young point guard who is physically strong and can handle the ball. He is under control and he makes good decision with the ball. He can get into the lane and he also hit a nice step-back jumper from the mid-range.
Anand Dharmarajan 5’6″ Webster Groves (’22) – A small young guard who is a solid ball handler and has the ability to make an open 3-point shot.
