This 6-foot-4 postman is quick off his feet, he showcased good footwork, mobility, and agility. Nothing bothered Ford or stopped him from scoring in the post, he utilized his size and power to finish through the defenders chest no matter how many players collapsed in on him.
This 6-foot forward was always in the right spot for the ball on both ends of the floor, he played the passing lanes, chased down loose balls, played outstanding help defense, and crashed the boards. Kolar put his body on a man and boxed out every single time a shot went up, even if he wasn’t able to get the ball he made sure his man couldn’t get it either.
Versatile 6’1 lefty who can stretch the floor or beat you in the post with his patience. Smith got buckets with his turnaround jumper and jump hook over his right shoulder showing a solid knack for extending high enough to finish over the top of a defender.
Benton Williams caught my attention as an aggressive rebounder who shows a desire to compete on the glass and limit second chance opportunities. Not only was Williams capable of overpowering his man with his physicality but he also showed the ability to outjump or outwork his man for the rebound or the loose ball. I also loved this kid’s effectiveness in the passing lanes, there were multiple instances where Benton came out of nowhere and shot the gap for deflections and steals.
