I'm biased. When I played I was a PG and I truly believe the ability to get anywhere on the floor with the dribble is one of the most important skills a player can have. Being creative off the bounce, quick COD's and the ability to start and stop on a dime are all traits of solid ballhandlers. In this article, PH takes a look at some of the top ballhandlers in Nevada.

Keshon Gilbert 6'2 PG Durango 2021 (#6PHN 2021) - The list starts with Gilbert. The UNLV recruit is a maestro with ball. He has a quick COD and can stop on a dime. His best move is probably his pull back cross over, as he creates a ton of space with it. He has perhaps the best combination of quickness and ballhandling of any player in the state. 

Damion Byrd 5'10 PG Silverado 2022 (#6PHN 2022) - Byrd is what I call a fundamental ballhandler. He doesn't use a ton of flashy moves, however, he performs all of them equally well. Right to left crossovers, between the legs COD's and flawless behind the back dribbles, are all in DB's repertoire, and he uses them effectively.
