Habib is a quick twitched point guard that has had a monster junior season in multiple outings we have seen him. The undersized lead guard is super athletic in tight spaces with the rock in his hands. Gets to the lane throughout a game with his ability to win off the bounce. His three point shot is streaky, but we have seen him have some pretty good shooting games. Another aspect that we like is for his height he rebounds very well being willing to stick his nose in among the trees for boards.
It has been an excellent first half for Henry from a personal standpoint. Henry is aggressive getting to the rim where he finishes at will. Scores through contact with his strength. Burst with the ball especially in transition where he hits another gear when he sees an opening in the defense. Solid passer that can make plays in ball screens. Has a chance to develop into a nice defender with his tenacity and instincts.
Current Ranking: #67
Previous Ranking: #97
Holden is the conductor for everything Evanston did in the first half of the season. The junior guard has been the x-factor his team. He learned from his older brother last year and has stepped right into his role as the leader at the point. His intensity on both ends of the floor sets the tone. The 5’10” lead guard is dynamic getting to the rim often for scores at the cup. Really good passer that consistently throws bullet passes to his teammates for dimes. Holden rebounds well from his guard spot and is a constant pressure point on the defensive end.
Corro is a high IQ guard that runs the show and scores around the rim with runners. He is definitely at his best as a set-up man. Gets others involved with his passing and feel for the game. Plus distributor and decision maker in the half court. Crafty as a finisher when looking to score in the lane.
