Fayetteville Christian has gotten off to a good start this season with a record of 5-1 before Tuesday night. They have a team that is well coached, unselfish, and plays hard on every single night. Their contest with Harrells was over pretty early as they jumped out to an early lead and didn’t look back much, finishing with a win of 73-41 and improving their record to 6-1.
FCS 2020 Forward Jaden Scriven: The top prospect on the floor, Scriven showed why he is one that college coaches should be keeping an eye on over the next two years. He was a beast inside the paint, blocked shots, finished above the rim and knocked down some midrange shots. He finished with 17 points on the night even though he got into some early foul trouble.
FCS 2020 Forward Daunte Gardner: One thing that you have to absolutely love about this young man is how hard he plays. From the moment the game began, he was all over the court, fighting for rebounds and providing extra possessions for his team. He led all scorers with 22 points on the night and although he lacks some height for a forward, his high motor and athletic ability allows him to be very productive.
FCS 2021 Guard Kelton Battle: One of the more unselfish players that you will see, he is constantly turning down shots of his own to set up teammates. He has solid ball handling skills and good court vision, you won’t see him turn it over too often and he plays with a maturity beyond his years.
FCS 2019 Guard Bennett Newman: He didn’t have his best day scoring wise but you can see the talent and potential. Decent size for a smaller college guard, he has a smooth shooting stroke and what I would call sneaky athleticism.
HCA 2020 Forward Jackson Hall: Stats wise he won’t stand out much to you but we saw a few things that we liked from him. 6’3-6’4 with good shooting form and nice upside is what we saw from him, if he works hard, he can play his way into some smaller school recruitment.
HCA 2020 Guard Javarus Keith: Ball handling duties were on his shoulders for the most part throughout the day. He pushed the tempo and on a few occasions he showed some flashes of craftiness with some of the ways he attacked.
HCA 2020 Guard Marcus Boykin: He didn’t have his best day scoring the ball but we know from the times that we have seen him play before that he’s talented. Shooting from midrange and attacking the basket are just a few of the things he does well.
