Day 1 did not dissapoint and here are a few more Day 1 Standouts that are all out in Las Vegas.
Isaac Bongen || Rose City Rebels || 2027 ||
When it comes to players that have elevated their game Isaac is one that stands out. Isaac has continually improved his game every time we see him hit the floor. His explosiveness is one of the main aspects of his game that just jumps out at you. He is calculated when it comes to his attacks but when he is locked in and has made up his mind he is just off the charts good. He had a stellar game against Team Why Not.
Ilan Nikolov || Vegas Elite || 2027 ||
You need to have a zone buster on the team and that is what Ilan was. He was in the corner or somewhere beyond the arc letting it fly and he was keeping this Vegas Elite Team within striking distance of a very talented and loaded roster. Ilan has some size as he was able to hold down a few of AZ Unity’s bigs at bay as best as he could, but they had a harder time guarding him because he is just a skilled wing. Even when he didn’t touch the ball you can see his off the ball movement that got him open. Really impressive Day 1.
Delton Prescott III || Arizona Unity Black || 2027 ||
Delton is as impressive as they come when you are looking at the PG position. His ability to be an on the ball defender the entire length of the court without getting beat to the basket is an underrated quality. He stays low and he has active hands. He knows when to give up fouls and he knows when to trust the defensive behind him. on offense he is like a Russell Westbrook that is shot out of a cannon towards the rim. He dropped 23 points against a really good Vegas Elite Team.
Andrai Griffin || Game Related || 2030 ||
In a very lob sided win Andrai was making the right plays and he was just a stat stuffer. The 70-27 win showcased his length and you can see him developing his all around skill. It is nice watching these youngsters put in work and play the right way. It’s never too early to start tracking young talent coming up.
Luke Wray || Team Utah || 2028 ||
Luke Wray has been playing at a high level this winter and his ability to snake his way through the defense is impressive. Then when he gets to the rim he has different finishing moves he can go to depending on what the defense does or who comes over to help. This kid has a bright future.
