The Oklahoma Top 250 Expo took place on Sunday, September 24 in Edmond, Oklahoma. It featured some of the top high school talent from across the state. Out of all of the elite talent that was at the event, this article is highlighting the top players from Team 6. Lets find out what they did.
showed a complete repertoire over the two games I watched him play. Throughout both games, he was a very reliable rebounder and excelled in this area for a guard. He would time his jumps well and get positioning to get the board. On offense, he would attack the gaps and kick to an open shooter when the defense would collapse or finish at the rim if they did not. He has a quick first step that helped him excel in this area. He would look to set his teammates up, but was not afraid to get a bucket in a close game. His stats reflected this. In the first game, he had 20 points, 7 assist, 5 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 block, and shot 9-13 from the field. He had 0 turnovers to go along with that. In his second game he had 14 points, 11 assist, 8 rebounds, 2 steals, and shot 5-8 from the field. He showed the ability to be a complete player, as he reminded me of Russell Westbrook. The difference is that he is not quite as athletic, but is a little better shooter. He is a player that can lead your team in whatever you need him to do on both ends of the court. That is why he is my Most Valuable Player for Team 6.
is in contention for the best shooter that I saw throughout the day. He has a smooth jumper with a well-timed release that causes the ball to glide smoothly to the basket. I watched him hit four three-pointers in one game and two more in another. He is an elite shooter that can provide a spark for his team. Outside of his threes, he showed the ability to hit a turnaround mid-range jumper over a shot contest and to finish at the rim off of drives and cuts. It was a great offensive display for him over the two games.
made an impact on both ends of the court. On the offensive end, he showed the ability to shoot the ball, as he knocked down multiple three pointers. One of the threes was a pull-up three right before the buzzer. His scoring impact also came from the inside, as he scored at the rim a couple of times. He was able to rebound decently, as he grabbed an offensive rebound and a few defensive rebounds over the course of the two games. Outside of this, he had a couple of assists and a block from behind. He played solid on-ball defense in the post and on the perimeter. It was a good couple of games for him as he made an impact on both ends of the court.
contributed in a couple of different areas, with one of them being what he excelled at for his team. Despite being listed at 6’2, he excelled at rebounding the ball. It seemed like he had a knack for where the ball was going and was able to get good positioning to get the rebounds. Outside of the rebounding, the other areas he made an impact was a small impact with his inside scoring, where he scored a few times. The last area was with his passing, as he picked up a couple of assists. If you need someone to rebound the ball, he is someone you can put on the wing to do that.
had an okay game in his first game, but really played well in the other game I saw. In the first game, he played against a lot of size and length. In this game, he grabbed a couple of rebounds, scored a couple of times with one of the times coming at the free throw line, and he had a steal from playing the passing lanes. In the other game, he played really well and worked his way onto this list. He grabbed multiple offensive rebounds and a few defensive rebounds, he scored inside a couple of times, and then he also hit a pull-up three. It was a step up in the right direction and helped him stick out. His on-ball defense was decent and he provided some hustle plays. It was a solid game for him.
