This past weekend we had the Collision in the Ville, which featured some elite junior high talent. We were able to see the future of high school and possibly college basketball. This article is breaking down the best rebounders I saw through six games on Sunday, 5/7. Lets find out who made the list.
D’marion Garland impacted the game in a multitude of ways, with rebounding being one of them. He utilized his size to grab several rebounds. He showed the ability to finish inside, even off of driving the gap. He made a big impact on the defensive end with a steal and good interior defense.
Camron Boucher made a massive impact on the game, despite his team playing up. He grabbed one rebound after another, turning some of these into second chance points. He showed the ability to finish inside and to knock down his free throws. His defense was good too, with him coming away with a block and several great shot contest. It was an impressive game for him, as he looked like he was playing down a grade, not up.
Marcus Jackson was playing up and made a big impact. Despite not being the tallest player on his team or the court, he grabbed several rebounds. This was due to his aggressiveness to constantly attack the basket. If you look at how Russell Westbrook attacked the glass as a guard, that is what Jackson was doing. One of his offensive rebounds resulted in him going 1/2 at the free throw line. He also hit a pull-up jumper in this game. It was an impressive game for him on the glass.
James Pyter had a solid all-around game. He rebounded at a good rate, doing it on both ends of the court. There was one play that he grabbed an offensive rebound and scored over two defenders. There was another play that he made a good pass that should have resulted in an assist. There was more than one time outside of that putback that he finished inside. It was a solid game all-around for him.
James Amend was one of the most impactful players that I saw. He played a selfless game, sacrificing his body by setting continual screens for his teammates. He was not afraid of contact, as this reflected with screens and him fighting for rebounds. He used his size advantage to make a big impact on the glass, where he grabbed offensive rebounds, as well as defensive rebounds. He played great help and interior defense, as well as getting a couple of steals and a block. He showed the ability to put the ball on the deck and attack gaps, where he finished through contact for an and-one. He also had some finishes inside. There was one play that he ran in transition and finished. His free throw percentage was pretty good during the game, as well.
