Here is a breakdown of the second team from the loaded field at the Prep Hoops DMV Top 250 Expo.
| 6’6″ wing | Clarksburg
Aw is a sophomore that is heavily on our radar thanks to his upside. He’s a fluid athlete for his age and size at 6-foot-6 with a high ceiling. Today, he looked extremely confident operating in one-on-one scenarios. Whether he was pulling up from deep off the dribble in his defender’s face, attacking from the face-up position on catches in the mid-range, or attacking closeouts, Aw’s attempts found the bottom of the net often.
| 6’0″ guard | Hayfield
Bass looked sharp from start to finish on Sunday. He brought positive energy to both ends of the floor. Bass scored efficiently and frequently looked to get others involved. He was particularly effective in transition, where he excelled as a grab-and-go threat.
| 6’3″ guard | Loyola
Ellison is as smooth as a sophomore that you’ll find in the area and while he usually hangs his hat on his scoring from 15 feet and out, he stood out with his decision-making as a playmaker. He made sound reads in ball screens, had several advance passes in transition for quick scores, and made the simple, but correct basketball plays in the half-court. Ellison took advantage of driving lanes and got to the rim in limited dribbles where he finished high and through contact.
| 6’2″ guard | Oxon Hill
Henderson is a live athlete who plays with an engine that runs continuously. He had several floor dives and deflections. Henderson thrived on the break where he looked to do damage to the rim.
| 6’4″ guard | Unity-Reed
Versatility is one of Shahateet’s main selling points. He finds many ways to impact a game but also can get a bucket when he needs to. We were impressed with Shahateet’s offensive efficiency and willingness to mix it up on defense.
