The Atlantic City Jam Fest is moving along with two days of action in the books. Players stood out across the Convention Center as they were trying to help their teams take home the sectional title. Here the standouts from the second day of the Atlantic City Jam Fest.
, 6’8 F Teaneck (Shore Shots) 2023
Tejada had a big day for the Shore Shots as he consistently hit big shots throughout the day. The 6’8 forward shot the ball with confidence from behind the arc and has a nice release on his jumper. Tejada was also able to get to the rim off the bounce and finished through traffic around the basket. He skied for rebounds on both ends of the floor and brought the ball up the floor at times. Tejada is a talented forward prospect who can make tough shots in the half court.
, 6’0 PG Arts (Jersey Force) 2023
Nix came up clutch for the Jersey Force 17U as he made huge plays for them in both games to pull out wins. The 6’0 floor general has a tight handle, which he used to get by his defender and finish around the basket. Nix does not mind drawing contact in the paint and shot the ball with confidence from the perimeter. He used his quick hands to cause steals, resulting in multiple layups in transition. Nix is a gamer who does what it takes to help his team win games.
, 5’10 PG Downington West (East Coast Cyclones) 2023
Blair had a monster day for the East Coast Cyclones as he set the tone for them throughout the day. The 5’10 guard has a nice shooting stroke as he knocked down multiple jumpers from behind the arc. Blair used his handle to get the team settled into the offense and made good decisions with the ball in his hands. He moved his feet well on the defensive end and fought for rebounds on both ends of the floor. Blair is a competitive guard prospect that gives it his all on both ends of the floor.

Embeya had a productive day for the NJ Roadrunners as he was able to show his ability to impact the game in a number of ways.

, 6’3 G Gonzaga (Mason Elite DC) 2023
Sabol did a little bit of everything on the offensive end for Mason Elite DC as he showed his versatility. The 6’3 guard has a lightning quick release on his jumper and made opponents pay for giving him space on the perimeter. Sabol did more than just as he was able to get to the basket off the dribble and finish around the basket. He ran the offense effectively and has a solid handle.
