Friday offered a packed slate of games in a short amount of time. Which 15U prospects started with a bang in the much-anticipated Chi-Town Tipoff?

Jonathan Calmese - Big 3 Basketball - Farragut - 6’0”
A natural guard with a piercing scoring mentality. Every shot looked comfortable for him, especially in the lane. There are some rough edges fundamentally, but the skill is obvious. He was sound with on-ball defense, too. He clamped down on opposing guards leaving no breathing room.

Yusuf Cisse - Big 3 Basketball - Conant - 6’0”
Ambitious passing and a transition-itch make Cisse an exciting prospect at the point guard spot. Didn’t put up a ton of points, but also didn’t come across as a score-first player. He’s able to make tough passes look easy, which frees up open looks for teammates. 

Camden Lathos - Big 3 Basketball - Conant - 6’4”
Prototype power forwards are increasingly rare, but Lathos fits the bill. His broad-shoulders and 6’4” frame create serious mismatches at the 15U level. He moves with unique speed for his size, especially as a post defender. Can clog up passing lanes with his ability to maintain a defensive position.
