The Clarksville Crossovers participated in the NYBA #PrimeTime Showcase but is also a team on the Prep Hoops Next circuit. So here is a look into this talented squad…
Braylon Lehman (5’4/CG/’29)
Braylon competed relentlessly on both ends of the floor. He is a reliable player that comes in and provides energy and effort. His contribution may not be seen on the stat sheet, but he did a lot of the intangibles that helped with winning. He is a competitive, tough, and aggressive guard that does not force action on offense, and he defends on D. When it is all summed up, he helps with winning without having huge numbers.
Kaden Roach (5’0/CG/’29)
This Clarksville Crossover is loaded with reliable guards, and Kaden is one of them. He is a source of production when it comes to distributing the rock and scoring. He can handle the rock, create his own shot off the bounce, and create for his teammates. He is very skilled for his age and has a good feel for the game. He is a calming factor on the court, and he helps keep his team in rhythm and on task. It’s not necessarily jumps that need to be made but more refinement in improving as a three-point shooter, getting to the line more frequently, and growing as a facilitator. As he continues to hone these skills at this early age, for Kaden to continue emerging and reaching levels of his potential.
Travis Rivers, Jr. (5’6/CG/’29)
Hands down, the alpha male on this team is Travis. He is a young, emerging prospect loaded with tools at an early age. Watching him at the NYBA #PrimeTime Showcase, I was very impressed with his ability to score in iso situations. He is absolutely a young beast off the bounce, and he is already demanding double teams at an early age. I mentioned his tools, and they were all on display, from his vision and passing accuracy to his crafty finishes in the paint and at the rim. TJ has the handle and quickness to go anywhere he wants on the floor, not to mention the skill and touch to score when he gets there. He is a rising 7th-grader who showed a lot of promise and was one of the best playmakers in the entire ’29 division.
Curtis Colbert, Jr. (5’0/CG/’29)
Curtis is a combo guard that brought production in facilitating and scoring. He is a multi-level scorer that shot it well from behind the arc, yet he still needs to be more consistent with the trey ball. Even though consistency is needed, be aware if he gets going because when he is on, he is on. He controls pace when the ball is in his hands, and he showed that he can score off the bounce as he has a nice floater game when he gets in the paint.
Myrion LaMonte Hartwell (5’11/C/’29)
Myrion is the man in the middle for the Crossovers. He is a lengthy 6th-grader who does a lot of the dirty work for his squad and has embraced his role on this team. His impact was clearly seen on the glass and on the defensive end of the floor. His length and wingspan were significant factors on defense, as he had deflections and steals playing the passing lanes. I know Myrion’s strength is on the defensive end of the floor, but he did show that he can contribute on the offensive end, particularly on the offensive glass and put-backs.
Davin Jaggers (5’5/PF/’29)
Davin showed that he has a knack for securing the boards. He is very physical in the paint and boards in traffic. He is a multi-level scorer that can stretch the floor with his ability to knock down the trey ball, and he also is a physical finisher in the paint and at the rim. Davin is efficient on both sides, but when it comes to the offensive end of the floor, his unselfish nature and capable three-point shooting don’t require him to dominate the ball to be a helpful offensive player on this squad.
