Elite 2: Day One Top Performers

SONY DSCThe first day of Elite 2 featured plenty of strong performances that have set the tone for what looks to be a very strong session with a great deal of talent. Take a look at this list of players that stood out on the first day of camp:

Steven Enoch | Norwalk (Conn.) | 6-9 | 2015
Enoch was a very unselfish big man that wasn’t bashful taking shots from mid-range. The junior didn’t force a lot of shots and he gave a great effort on defense as well.

Aaron Burton | Cheltenham (Pa.) | 6-1 | 2014
Burton was comfortable from a number of spots on the floor. Whether there was contact or a hand in his face, Burton still managed to fill it up on the offensive end.

Ameka Akaya | St. Maria Goretti (Md.) |6-4| 2015
Akaya was huge for his team on the glass today during scrimmages. He had his hands on almost every ball that touched the rim and did a great job at finishing in the paint. The junior  also had a nice two-handed slam off of a dish from one of his teammates.

Travis Cook | Middletown (N.Y.) | 6-3 | 2014
Cook had a ferocious two-handed dunk in transition today. The lightning quick guard does a great job getting out in transition and really floats like a feather once he gets into the air.

Ceasar Dejesus | Teaneck (N.J.) | 6-2 | 2015
Dejesus was quite the show to see on this first day of camp. The NJ native had a series where he came down and flushed a one-handed slam and then followed that with a tremendous block on the other end. The junior did it all today, even against taller competition.

William Brandwijk | Holderness (N.H.) | 6-8 | 2014
Brandwijk was one of the more polished post players throughout the scrimmages. He ran the floor well and did a great job at both finishing and rebounding in traffic. The senior also showed nice form on his jump shot as he took and made a few in rhythm off the dribble.

Anthony Mosley | Samford (Del.) High School | 6-0 | 2014
In the first set of scrimmages, Mosley was all over the floor, tipping a pass to himself, leading a fast break and using a few passes to get by his defender for the easy layup. After that, the senior heated up from the field from deep, hitting at least four mid to deep shots from the field.

Donovan Wright | Blair (NJ) High School | 6-5 | 2015
Wright hustles to make the big plays and he made a few on the first day. He has the hops to really get after the basket, which was a common sight when he hit the court.

Jonathan Nwankwo | Iona (N.Y.) Prep School | 6-10 | 2015
When Nwankwo gets the ball in the post, it’s tough to stop him. The junior uses his strength to his advantage and showed off plenty of powerful moves down low.

Akilo Samson | Nazareth (N.Y.) Academy | 6-8 | 2014
Another player with a nice post presence, Samson was a powerful post player that abused the rim, especially on a reverse jam at the end of one of the scrimmages.

Trey Lowe | Ewing (N.J.) High School | 6-4 | 2015
Lowe’s shot was on point during day one, even looking more comfortable with a defender in his face. The junior hit a three-pointer with his opponent blocking his vision with his palm practically on his face, but Lowe was unfazed and drilled the shot.

Austin White | St. Peter’s (N.J.) Prep | 6-0 | 2014
During scrimmage sessions, the senior was (warning: awful pun coming) White hot, getting into a rhythm while either blowing by his defender for easy layups and knocking down shots from beyond the arc.

Kaliph Grant | Middletown (N.J.) High School | 5-11 | 2014
Grant had a great possession, stealing the ball and, in a two-on-one situation, gave the ball up to a trailing Shane Temara, who stands at 6-foot-6, for the emphatic finish to a nice play.

Shane Temara | West Genesee (N.Y.) | 6-6 | 2014
Temara had a nice stretch of back-to-back dunks in transition. The senior really ran the floor well as he finished a number of easy baskets around the rim for his team.
