The Hustle In The Sun took place in Arizona This past weekend. There was plenty of talent in all the age groups. I didn’t see every player, but there were some that caught my attention with their play. Here’s five Freshman who I thought played well at this event.

Aeramiah Binford Aeramiah Binford 6'3" | SF South Mountain | 2024 State AZ 6’3 W/F of South Mountain HS. (AZ) PAL Elite 2024. He’s an athletic jumping jack with plenty of extra energy to go around. He’s long, a quick leaper, and tries to block everything. He has the foot speed to guard on the wings, but guarded the other teams big man. He was active on both ends in the paint. He was effective inside and out. He lights up in transition knowing he’ll get an opportunity to throw one down.

Damian McKiever 5’9 PG of Cherry Creek High HS. (CO) 5280 Athletics 2024.  He’s a pass first point guard, with good handles, he doesn’t get sped up too often. He did a good job running the team in half court sets. He makes good decision with ball, knowing when to push, or pass it up in transition. 

James Pulliam James Pulliam 6'7" | C Doherty | 2024 CO 6’6 PF/C of Doherty HS. (CO)  P.
