This morning we had a treat because players came out to play and show out because a playoff berth was on the line.
Vegas Elite || Taj Ingram || 2028 ||
Taj was a force this morning as he had his way in the paint. Taj was racking up offensive boards as he used his superior height in this game. He finished with both hands and had multiple AND 1’s under his belt. In transition he showed that he could sprint back and guard anyone in a scramble. He had a double-double and likely had at least 5 blocks. Nice player out of Vegas to watch coming up developing.
UPLAY-G || Deng Ngor || 2027 ||
The big fella was one of two towers for UPLAY and he was truly taking over the paint on both ends. He was blocking shots and cleaning things up. Impressed with his interior passing. Not an easy task with the speed of the game this morning. Nice finishing skills and hooks near the rim. He is a raw developing big that could turn into a big time player.
Culture Shock || Veer Nagra || 2028 ||
One of the more intriguing prospects out here from Spokane, Washington playing with a bunch of kids from Boise, Idaho. Veer has length and IQ to go along with his height and long frame. He was altering some shots in the paint and he was using that long wingspan to bother shots out in the perimeter as well. Rebounded well in his area. In the post and near the basket he has some moves he likes to go to especially over his left shoulder in time he can work on additional moves as you can see that he is still raw playing in different areas of the floor.
Vegas Elite || Dillon Richie || 2028 ||
One of the scrappier guards you will see on the defensive end. He picks up full-court and he does a great job at turning the ball handler multiple times making it difficult to bring the ball up the floor or simply disrupt the flow of the offense. He was making life difficult for some solid ball handlers this morning. On the offensive side of the ball he has a good looking shot that has some elevation and he also has a high release. Moves well without the ball looking for pockets in the defense and staying within the line of vision of the ball handlers looking for players in the perimeter.
UPLAY-G || Tayshaun Gritton || 2027 ||
Gritton was a DOG this morning as he came to play. Really like that he was hauling in rebounds at 6’6 and then running the floor leading the break. Solid dribbling big that got through waves of traffic and found the outlet man and often was the player creating for shooters and others running the floor with him for layups.
