Now that the NIBC Invitational is in the books, it’s time to reflect on what we learned during our time in the gym the past couple of weeks. Here are 10 of the top performers from Florida schools. 

Tamar Bates Tamar Bates 6'4" | PG IMG Academy | 2021 State FL | IMG Academy ’21

Texas commit Tamar Bates Tamar Bates 6'4" | PG IMG Academy | 2021 State FL was thoroughly impressive for IMG. The southpaw guard shot the trey ball well. Bates hit 7 of 14 attempts through 2 games. He was among the leading scorers in the event, averaging nearly 17 points per game while shooting almost 59% from the field. While the numbers are impressive, Bates made a difference with his relentless effort. He competed fiercely on both ends for the Ascenders. 

Eric Dailey Jr. Eric Dailey Jr. 6'7" | CG IMG Academy | 2022 State #33 Nation FL | IMG Academy ’22

Eric Dailey Jr. Eric Dailey Jr. 6'7" | CG IMG Academy | 2022 State #33 Nation FL passes the eye test immediately. The class of 2022 wing is built like an action figure. Dailey has an unorthodox game in part because he’s left-handed. He’s also very athletic and can pull up on a dime from the mid-range areas. Dailey shot the 43% from trey despite a small sample size (7 attempts). 

Moussa Diabate Moussa Diabate 6'10" | PF IMG Academy | 2021 State #22 Nation FL | IMG Academy ’21

Moussa Diabate Moussa Diabate 6'10" | PF IMG Academy | 2021 State #22 Nation FL surprised everyone
