Academic Elite II: Day Three Top Performers

Austin White | St. Peter’s (N.J.) Prep | 6-0 | 2014
On this day White was one of the most complete players in camp. Shooting 3’s, driving the lane and finishing strong, knowing when to make the extra pass and keeping a high intensity on the defensive end of the floor all contributed to his 18 point effort in an afternoon session game in Bollman Center.

Robbie Walsh | Summit (N.J.) High School | 6-7 | 2014
On Day Three Walsh averaged 10 points and 10 rebounds a game and added an average of two to three blocks per game as well. It was this play in the post, on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor, which have earned him a spot on this list.

Justin Bassey | Colorado Academy (Colo.) | 6-3 | 2016
Averaging 20 points a game and eight rebounds, the very athletic Bassey may be the best player in the NESCAC conference here at camp. Along with his scoring ability his defensive pressure is relentless and he seems to be the definition of a ball hawk.

Jack Buckmelter | Colorado Academy (Colo.) | 6-0 | 2016
Identical to his Mustangs’ teammate, Buckmelter is a superior athlete who is also averaging 20 points a game. Along with Bassey above and Mueller below, Buckmelter would be in the conversation for top player honors in the NESCAC.

Josh Mueller | Homestead (Wisc.) High School | 6-7 | 2016
Averaging 15 points and 15 rebounds a game Mueller has displayed great footwork and great hands throughout camp. Could be among the top five big men at camp and should develop into a solid Division I player.

Elijah Frater | Trevor Day (N.Y.) School | 5-11 | 2015
A solid jumper and the ability to drive the lane helped Frater finish with 12 points in an early game on Day Three. His ability to handle and distribute the ball along with his tough defense and positive attitude were also pluses in his game.

Kevin McFall | Upper Moreland (Pa.) High School | 6-5 | 2014
Good work on both the offensive and defensive boards is what helped McFall stand out throughout the day. His ability to play solid defense and his apparently high basketball IQ were also keys to his team’s success today.

Brendan Cox | East Aurora (N.Y.) High School | 6-4 | 2014
Demonstrating a quick release on his shot, the small forward had a knack for hitting clutch 3-pointers on the third day of camp. He averaged 13 points a game while sinking two to three 3’s a game.

Tyler McShea | Pemberton (N.J.) High School | 6-5 | 2016
Running the point McShea dished out an average of five assists per game on Day Three while knocking down clutch shots when necessary. On the defensive end McShea averaged three steals a game.

Tyler Robinson | Kingston (N.Y.) High School | 5-11 | 2016
A high-motor player, Robinson was very active all day long grabbing offensive boards and turning those into easy second-chance baskets.

David Haytaian, Jr. | Hopewell Valley (N.J.) High School | 5-8 | 2015
A pass-first point guard who has the ability to get to and through the lane, was also knocking down key shots in big spots for team when needed. –@pfebbraro
