FAIRFAX, VA — Paul VI hosted Flint Hill on Wednesday as both teams continued their preseason preparations. Here we recap this competitive scrimmage with the 10 best.
Anthony Harris was his team’s catalyst in a number of area’s. Defensively, he was active and alert off the ball, and solid on the ball. Offensively, Harris showcased confidence in his perimeter jump shot and scored from all three levels, finishing with 31 points.
Qudus Wahab drew plenty of attention from PVI’s defense, which did a good job denying him the ball for a majority of the contest. Wahab was relentless and managed to stay productive on both ends with his shot blocking, rebounding, and scoring.
Jeremy Roach controlled the tempo of his team’s attack, which was generally fast paced. Roach demonstrated good vision and efficiently when reading ball screens, keeping his teammates involved but also looking for his shot when he felt the need.
Josiah Freeman did a bit of everything for PVI, including being active at the top of their press. Freeman scored effortlessly at times, showing the ability to get to his spots quickly. He also had some nice assists.
Xavier Joyner Jr. knocked down a handful of three pointers in this contest, showcasing a confident shooting stroke and the knowledge where to be to receive the ball in dangerous situations. Joyner is a heat check guy who can get hot at any moment if left unattended to.
Dug McDaniel plays with great pace for a young player. McDaniel’s ability to create space and pull-up on a dime is impressive, but his vision is also superb.
Jordan Hairston worked hard defensively, picking up his man and not giving him much room to operate. Hairston started off the scrimmage with a smooth pull up jump shot, but did a nice job of finding others in open areas.
His shot wasn’t really falling today, but Trevor Keels found other ways to impact the game. Keels played with tremendous energy; crashing the offensive boards, recording numerous deflections, and providing solid weak-side help defense.
