Time to look hard at these juniors.  Who are the best three junior small forwards in the state of South Dakota?  We dive into that today.  Who do you think is the best?  Is it somebody else not on our list?  

In reviewing this discussion we’ve went back to look at film of each and gave you three different things that we really like from each. 

Charles Christensen of Rapid City Stevens

  1. At 6-foot-6 with a long, thin frame, Charles runs very well.  It’s not just his pace but how quickly he turns and gets up the floor before others react and in an effortless looking wide, glides ahead of others to get where he needs.  There is one possession when an attacking player is going to the rim and Charles sprints back and stops the play and the ball is moved out.  There are things like this that lead to a high potential. 
  2. Charles is raw and inexperienced.  It may take some time but you can see in some of this summer video that there is more comfort with the basketball than initially thought.  With his quickness Charles has the comfort to put the down and beat players
