July 7th through 9th – In the midst of the live period, top competition from across the country met up at some of the spacious venues in the northern Illinois area. In front of college coaches and scouts, these prospects brought top notch energy to the floor in hopes to take their craft to the next level. Here are some prospects who i saw as “Wings Standouts” who I was able to highlight at “The Last Dance”.
Ritzel is a sturdy wing who provided consistent scoring for the Illinois Bears . Able to score it on all three levels of the floor, the crafty wing used his body well and was rarely ever sped up or knocked off his spot. The Illinois Bears offense scored at a high level when he was on the floor as Ritzel stretched the floor and excelled in high low situations.
Jacob George | WBBP Rush
George was a reliable scorer in the post for WBBP Rush. The big target in the paint found the glass on a consistent basis and proved to be patient, allowing defenders to leave their feet and draw fouls. The beast in the paint made several visits to the line via his understanding off jump stops and pump fakes.
Ray Brau | Starks Elite
Brau made his mark in the paint at The Last Dance. Physical and explosive, he provided a big target for Sharks Elite. He showed impressive hands and an innate ability to get to the free throw line. The clip he shot from the line was also very impressive.
Zatterion Sutton | WBBP Rush
Sutton had his hands in a multitude of impact plays for WBBP Rush. Lanky and skilled, Sutton did well setting the table as a secondary ball handler. He shot a great clip off the dribble, using screens and picking his spots well.
Bieber shined as a spot up shooter for ECI Select. He proved to have high level movement off the ball, coming off of screens and sinking to the corner when the ball hit the paint. Bieber also provided great length in half court defense, he was able to contest shots and contribute on the boards.
Chrishon Woodward |F| Circle City Shooters Elite
Woodward thrived with the ball in his hands for Circle City Elite. As a bigger body on the floor, he was able to attack mismatch situations and do damage as a secondary-playmaker on the floor. Driving and kicking to open teammates and hitting them on the mark, Woodward quickened the pace for his team at The Last Dance.
