Prep Hoops Missouri was in the house at Hazelwood Central on Thursday night to take in the action at its Jamboree. The host Hawks were joined by John Burroughs and McCluer North.
Here is look at the top Class of 2023 standouts at the Jamboree.
(John Burroughs): The 6’5″ forward had some moments of dominance in the second game against McCluer North. He was strong around the basket as he scored on drop steps, turnaround jumpers and a few power dunks at the rim. He also had a very effective turn and face game where he can hit the 17 footer, drive to the basket or hit the open cutter with the nice pass.
Donovan Howard (Hazelwood Central): A powerful 6’4″ forward who has a big, physical body, but he is also pretty skilled. He attacked the basket well with bully-ball drives to the basket and he didn’t mind the contact. He could also step out and hit the 3-pointer off the pick and pop. He was also a solid rebounder and post defender.
Trey Harris (McCluer North): A 6’0″ 2023 point guard who had a very impressive showing on Thursday night with his variety of offensive skills. He was a tough cover for opposing guards as he was constantly able to get into the lane off the dribble. He had a nice pull up jumper in the lane and he could also hit the 3-pointer to keep defenders honest.
Cameron McKenzie (McCluer North): A 6’9″ 2023 forward who provides some good size and length in the low post. He did a nice job on the offensive boards as he showed a nice touch on his putbacks. He also contested shots around the basket on defense and he ran the court very well. He will be a welcome addition for the Stars as he gives them some size.
Dominique Fulton (Hazelwood Central): A 5’10” combo guard who was very active at both ends of the court. He is a solid on-ball defender who was really applying the pressure to opposing ball handlers. He had some nice penetrating drives to the basket and he also hit a 3-pointer in the transition game.
