Spotlight Games


Day Two Spotlight Games

Crown vs Jersey Force In a thriller semi final game that ended in 3 overtimes, Crown found themselves in a hole late. Kenny Jones was nothing short of clutch as he hit the pump fake and finished to give The Jersey Force the 2 point advantage. In a battle that drew a big time crowd, Crown took home he cake and eventually took home the Crown in the championship game.

 

Day One Morning Spotlight Game

            Division I schools La Salle University from the A10, Robert Morris from the Northeast Conference, and a multitude of Division II and III schools were in attendance to watch the morning matchup between the Crusader Nation and New York Havoc. With a trip to the winner’s bracket on the line, both teams showed some early game jitters to start.
            Team Havoc jumped out to a quick 17-5 lead behind the energy and hustle of their point guard number 12, William Aybar.  Aybar set the pace of the game from the opening tip, extending the defensive pressure 94 feet and advancing the basketball by passing ahead.  Crusader Nation eventually acclimated to the frenetic pace of play, but trailed double digits throughout the game’s first 10 minutes.  The Nation never looked comfortable in their half court sets, struggling to execute against the extended pressure of Havoc.  Skilled 6’8” forward Joe Delollo (#33) provided a perimeter, threat stretching the defense and opening driving lanes for Havoc’s lighting quick Aybar.  Crusader Nation eventually found a way to put up points up through second chance opportunities and fast break chances. They went on a 10-2 run and cut the lead to seven to close out the half.
            The Nation continued their aggressive play to start the second half, finishing contested shots around the basket and creating and-1 opportunities.  With momentum on their side and foul situations softening up Havoc’s defensive pressure, the Nation began to convert on open jump shots. Although he showcased a soft touch around the basket and consistent face up game outside the paint, Delollo was unable to guard the perimeter on defense.  Delollo was forced to soft contest on screen and roll switches and gave up easy driving angles to Crusader Nation’s guards. Havoc trailed by two points going into the game’s final four minutes.
            The game came down to the final possession in regulation, tied at 60 with a little over eleven seconds remaining. Crusader Nation was set to take the ball out on a side out of bounds.  The ball was inbounded, and a down screen was set away from the ball in an effort to free up their team’s leading scorer for the game, #0-Nick Parrish.  He was denied but eventually caught the ball out near half court under duress .  With three seconds remaining he stepped into a 30 foot pull-up jumper that seemed to hang in the air for an eternity before swishing through the net; ending the game and advancing the Nation to the winner’s bracket.  When asked about what was going through his mind in the closing seconds, Parrish responded, “I ain’t gone lie to you, I practice that shot a lot…a hesitation to a pull up three—so, to see it finally come to work, it’s a blessing man. It felt great”.  Parrish continued on to speak about his team’s togetherness, “I’ve played with these guys for four years now–with these guys they go out and give it a hundred percent every game. It’s more like a family than a team.  We all just play together, and play for each other”.
            Crusader Nation will look to build upon this momentum going into their next matchup.  Number 33 for Havoc led the team in scoring with 15 points, while Parrish finished with 12 points, 10 in the 4th quarter and the game winner.

Day One Evening Spotlight Game

Roadrunners vs Cecil Kirk was the most entertaining game of the day. Trailing by ten points with four minuets left on the clock, NJ Roadrunners turned on the Jets. A well coached game from a legendary staff, Kaheed Jenkins drew the foul and layed it up for a picture perfect finish to put Roadrunners up by one and crush Cecil Kirks chance at an upset. The Jersey Road Runners live to see another day and head to Neptune tomorrow to show they are meant for the big stage!

Day One Player Standouts

George Visconti | SBA Elite

A three point sniper, George Visconti has been nothing short of elite from behind the arc. The smooth 6-3 guards’ stroke has been machine- like here today as he had 5 three in a routing of Team Pro Look. The Jersey guard had numerous schools here in attendance to watch his stellar performance including Lafayette and TCNJ.

Keron Williams | NJ Beasts

The shifty Newark guard was getting to the basket and slashing for the back door dump off better than anyone today. Scoring an easy 3, The Eastside high star shined in the lime light here and will continue to do so this summer. Look for Williams to start getting on college coaches maps here very soon.

Drew Green | Cecil Kirk

Green was playing very similar to Celtics wing Gerald Green here today. He caught a super impressive 1 handed alley and slammed it home in-front of a big crowd and people soon realized who Drew really is. Scoring an easy 25, Drew was able to show his athleticism was good enough to hang with the best here at the Sportika Sports Complex.

Daily Recap


Day 2

Over 200 college colleges and 15 media outlets packed the gym today for the second day of Summer Jam Fest. The much anticipated schedule did not disappoint as top programs like New Heights, NY Rens, Team St8ment, Middlesex Magic, York Ballers and Jayhawks battled head to head.

Saturday had an exciting start with a SJ Blitz and ICC Truth match up ending in a buzzer beater by SJ Blitz’s Samuel Adejumo (#15). Both teams battled the entire game, but SJ Blitz was able to finish off a quick ball in and finish off the glass.

The energy continued throughout the day into a NY Rens and PK Flash match up. PK Flash’s quick offense helped give them an edge on a loaded Rens team. Ultimately, the Ren’s size and physical defense wore PK Flash down and ended in a 12 point victory after a string of Rens foul shots.

One of the last games of the night [7:45pm] between New Heights NYC and South Jersey Elite started off on the slow side but picked up as the time went on. This match up featured a couple of the nation’s top recruit in 7’0 Moses Brown (2018) and 6’9” Precious Achiuwa (2019) and they showed why they are both respectively in the top of their class. New Heights was finding a hard time finishing what would usually be easy layups in the first half — credit to the hard nosed defense played by SJ Elite. Brown had an impressive game continuously using his long size to finish at the rim and to post up the smaller players. The Deveney brothers (Dylan and Connor) were helping their team stay in the game by lighting it up from behind the arc. They were a bright spot for SJ Elite and seem to play well against a bigger team like New Heights. Heading into the second half, the game was still in arms reach with New Heights only holding a 38-30 lead. After an fastbreak Achiuwa dunk the momentum shifted towards New Heights and they never looked back from that. Couple of solid players in Rob Higgins and Omar Silverio, both complete this already stacked team with their abilities to handle the ball and create open shots for themselves off the dribble. Higgins is a dynamic point guard who is hard nosed on the defensive end and is a true playmaker on the offensive side. Silverio can stroke the trey ball nicely and also blow by multiple defenders for a easy two — very athletic and talented. New Heights ended up beating SJ Elite 75-44 but don’t let the score fool you because it felt closer than what it looked.

Day 2 | Player Standouts

#5 New Heights | Precious Achiuwa

Precious Achiuwa is arguably the most well rounded and volume scorer at Summer Jam. Ranked in the Top 25 on every website in the country, Precious’ ranking is without a doubt deserving. The 6-7 Small Forward from St Benedicts slashes to the basket better than anyone and his ability to draw the defensive double team is something unmatched. Holding offers from High major programs around the country, Precious’ has showed he’s ready for the next level.

#2 Shoreshots | Daniel Sofield

The 6’5 shooting guards height is a huge help to his game. Having the ability to “bully” the smaller defender is a trait he abuses on a regular basis. A very underrated rebounder at the 3 position, Sofield crashes the boards like a Power forward.  He has been absolutely brilliant here this past weekend and is looking to continue his success this summer.

https://twitter.com/TheHoopGroup/status/888810203021533184

#7 Castle Athletics | Malachi De Sousa

6-5 and dangerous, the small forward carries the ball up the court like a guard does. The Castle Athletics savage is a very underrated perimeter threat as he’s hit 2-3 threes per game. De Sousa’s stock has risen dramatically due to Hoop Group events and expect it to rise even more throughout the year at the Power House School South Kent.

#0  New Heights | Omar Silverio 

Game started off slow and Silverio did a great job picking up the offensive slack for his team by getting some easy fast break lay ups and staying in the passing lanes. Hit a couple of 3’s from deep and definitely has a nice shooting touch. Teammates look for him a lot which says a good amount about the type of player you are. Overall a dynamic combo guard with a lot of upside and a load of talent

#23 Wrightway Skills HGSL | Nate Hobbs 

Aside from being an extremely athletic player and a long hang time, he has the ability to score from anywhere on the floor and can be a nightmare match up for some teams. Had a poster dunk over a 7 footer yesterday and followed it up today with an emphatic one handed fast break jam. Creates space for himself and sees the court very well.

#0 York Ballers | Antonio Rizzuto 

Just a solid, solid, player. Started the day off right where he left off yesterday – HOT. Had a tremendous game today handling the ball pressure with ease, penetrating and kicking, shooting with confidence behind the arch, creating his own shot off the dribble/off screens. Tough kid who isn’t afraid to put his body on the line, guards hard and takes charges.

#24 Philly Hurricanes | Yazis Powell

½ of the dynamic backcourt for the Hurricanes, fast in-your-face type of player, not afraid to defend hard and dive for the hustle plays. He let it go from the outside a few times but also quickly blew by defenders finishing for high flying dunks/finishes at the rim. Has quick hands which leads to steals and uncontested fast breaks. Also an unselfish player that makes the extra, but CORRECT pass.

 

Day 1|  Player Standouts

#14 Middlesex Magic | Benjamin McPhierron

Pure shooter, started off the game off hot and hit a couple of long range 3’s – NBA range. Solid, under control, guard that has the ability to handle the ball and defend the ball. Provides good spacing on the floor which leads to efficient ball movement and scoring.

#24 D.C. Blue Devils  | Kevin Fernandez

Very tough player who is undersized but doesn’t let that affect him much. Has great body control and hang with the other players on the court. Hustles for every ball, takes care of each possession and plays hard defense. Capable of scoring off screens, has a good pull up and perimeter game.

#2 New Heights | Robert Higgins

Heck of a defender – guarded the other team’s best ball handler all game – hard nosed and gritty player. Quickest feet and hands I’ve seen on a player all day. Not afraid to get into the paint and draw contact and/or kick out. Shown a little bit of his perimeter game as well but overall definitely held his own out there.

#32 Wrightway Skills |  Charles Coleman

The Umass 7 footer was nothing short of a standout here at The Hoop Group Summer Jam. A big with high major offers, he was able to stretch the floor and score from the perimeter on numerous occasions. Look for him to have a huge weekend here as bigs are unable to guard his long range shot.

#3 DC Blue Devils | Ronnie Silva

The gritty NH guard put on a show today against The New York Rens. While only 5-9, he’s ability to drive in the lane and score in contact is something you don’t see from someone of his size. Silva’s killer crossover puts the defender on skates and is a walking highlight reel. With only 1 Division 2 offer, Silva is looking to get his name out on a national level.

#0 York Ballers  | Antonio Rizzuto

Rizzuto is an absolute bucket. The York Baller scored 22 with a win today against the tough Castle Athletics team. Standing at 6-3, he’s able to use his size to get around defenders and score in traffic. That in addition to a very reliable 3 point shot are his claims to fame. Holding numerous division 1 offers, Rizzuto is definitely a player to keep an eye on this week.
