June isn't about being perfect. Quite the opposite, actually, as teams are feeling it out and trotting out quirky lineups.
That carries over to the players. So, while out at the Univ. of Dayton this weekend evaluating, we weren't looking for spotless showings. Rather, a flash here and there of improved skill or athleticism.
Here's what we saw from the juniors:
AJ Mirgon (2021) | 5-11 PG | Bradley / Mid Ohio Pumas (Ross/Norris)
Is there another 6-foot-ish guy in Ohio who is more effective than Mirgon at the rim? He is wildly capable of creating points when he's caught on the block without his dribble. Pump fakes and pivots for patient buckets off the glass. Mirgon also sneaks in creative interior passing assists that wrap around a defender or come from behind his back.
Mirgon is an elite cutter who plays well with other point guards because of his effectiveness without the ball. Active kid who can become a playmaker on the catch — both when he receives a backdoor pass or from the wing attacking a closeout.
