ICYMI: Day 6 – Part 1
After a mixed week, it was a really positive performance for 2019 guard Josh Green in the win over Olive Branch. The Arizona commit put down 32 points on 12-of-15 shooting from the field and 6-of-9 from the free throw line. Smooth with the ball and smart as a passer and shot maker, Green was almost impossible to slow down in the 5th place title game.
A man amongst boys dating back to Saturday’s City of Palms Premiere at Lehigh, 2019 forward DJ Jeffries put together a 28-point, six-rebound game for Olive Branch. Although he struggled at the free throw line (2-of-12), Jeffries consistently displayed his impressive ballhandling for a big and ability to stretch the floor. His future at Memphis is very bright.
Playing with four fouls early in the third quarter, 2020 guard Sharife Cooper had his best overall game despite those issues. He totaled 20 points, five rebounds and four assists, in the City of Palms Championship as the Indians won after falling a season ago. As the week picked up, Cooper’s game improved and his quickness, twitch moves and overall feel for the game showed tremendously. 2019 forward Isaac Okoro (Auburn commit) had 18 points while 2019 forward Jared Jones (Northwestern commit) finished with 13 points.
Two straight nights for Jaden Springer and two good games for the 2020 guard. He had 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting and hustled down the floor all night long. Springer is beyond athletic and someone who works to get better each and every time he is on the floor. 2019 forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl also saw the floor well with a 17 points, eight rebounds and four steals as he went a perfect 7-of-7 from the field. He was steady all week long.
Netting 22 points in the first half alone, you have to love the energy 2019 La Crosse Central guard Jordan Davis played in two matchups this week. He’s really strong and sneaky smart in the small areas near the basket. Also, it doesn’t hurt that he shot ( ) from the field.
It wasn’t the most efficient day, but 2020 forward Caleb McGill was the hardest competitor for his side with 20 points. 2019 guard Landyn Shows was really good from outside with 17 points (5-of-7 from deep). For Petal, the team plays with lots of energy and McGill and Shows are the best pure scorers.
The 2019 Maryland commit had an impressive showing all week long and he capped it off with a tough minded 15 point evening. Donta Scott is a gritty player who did all he could against an athletic McEachern bunch that try to slow him down from the jump.
