This Offensive big man went to the block and established position each possessions down the floor. Banton utilized his size to post up and his length to give his teammates a target to throw the ball to. Nimble and agile abilities inside of the paint, Banton showed the ability to turn over either shoulder and also finish on both sides of the hoop, often scoring despite constant double teams. Impeccable court awareness, Jaeron Banton always knew where his guys were at all times and he made sure to deliver the pass in a timely manner. His passing became a major threat after defensive rebounds as he snagged the ball out of the air and immediately threw a football pass down to the court that led his teammates directly to the basket.
This postman displayed good footwork, mobility, and agility from the inside out. In the post Ford played physical utilizing his size and power to score through the defender’s chest no matter how many players collapsed in on him.
2028 prospect, Terrell Jackson played up and controlled the paint at times on both ends of the floor. Jackson converted offensive rebounds into baskets at a good rate, using his effort to clean up the glass for tip-ins. Defensively, Jackson continues to show the potential to develop into a dominant shot blocker, the 6-foot-7 center excelled as a rim protector and he did it without making costly fouls simply by putting his hands highs or challenging the shot in the air.
Mason Newman put his versatility on full display by playing out on the perimeter looking to open spot-up shot opportunities along with his ability to play in the post with his back to the basket or face-up. Newman was a true bruiser in the paint and a beast on the boards.
6-foot-7-inch Colorado prospect, Asher Serlen proved to be the most overall skilled and talented low post threat in the entire tournament. Serlen is a mobile big man that consistently ran the floor like a gazelle. He showcased an ability to put the ball on the floor and get to the rack, he also displayed footwork on the move while going around defenders with hop steps and eurosteps in order to score inside. On the defensive side of the ball, Asher Serlen challenged everything that came inside and often came up successful, he even went after jumpshots outside of the lane and made a major impact. Serlen stuffed shots under the basket without leaving his feet, his timing and anticipation for the shot as well as the ball in midair were next level.
