Elite 2: Day Three Top Performers

SONY DSCWith courts nearly filled with college coaches, players made sure to put on some of their best performances.  Here is a compiled list of standouts from another great day at Albright College:

Calvin Crawford | St. Thomas More (Conn.) | 6-7 | 2014
Crawford, standing at a slender 6-foot-7, displayed plenty of hustle from end to end while also showing off some finesse under the rim.

Godspower Ogide | Bishop Kearney (N.Y.) | 6-10 | 2014
Ogide is a monster in the post, using his large 6-foot-10 frame to his advantage as he bullies his way through the paint.

William Westbury | Bullis (Md.) High School | 6-1 | 2015
The hustle of Westbury was a big factor during his team’s games, especially as he out-jumped an opponent on a loose ball and tipped it to a teammate for an easy layup.

Tim Guers | Germantown Academy (Pa.) | 6-3 | 2015
The 6-foot-3 junior was giving 100 percent throughout the day, running coast to coast continually while showing off a nice shooting stroke from beyond the arc.

Marques Townes | St. Joseph’s Metuchen (N.J.) | 6-3 | 2014
Townes could do no wrong, pushing his way through contact to make some difficult layups, even showing off his range as he nailed a half-court buzzer beater to end a quarter.

Darien Bryant | St. John’s (D.C.) College | 6-4 | 2014
Bryant showed plenty of poise as he was running the offense, but looked most comfortable while using nice ball-handling moves to escape his defender and knocking down mid-range shots.

Alexander Newbold | DeMatha (Md.) High School | 5-11 | 2014
Newbold is a little undersized at 5-foot-11, but he makes up for it with a great vertical. The senior was grabbing offensive rebounds over much taller defenders and attacking the rim with force on fast breaks.

Pierre Sarr | Westtown (Pa.) High School | 6-7 | 2015
At 6-foot-7, Sarr uses his height advantage to shoot over his defenders. It’s a strategy that works too, as he was finding the net often on Thursday.

Luka Petkovich | Deerfield Prep (Ma.) | 6-2 | 2014
The Serbian sensation played solidly today doing a great job of getting his teammates involved and taking what the defense gave him. He also put in a great effort on the defensive end and you never saw him slack off on that side of the court.

Jamal Custis | Neumann-Goretti (Pa.) | 6-6 | 2014
The galloping forward, maybe suited better as a defensive end, used his size and strength to overpower any player standing in his way. He amassed a number of impressive dunks on the day and really showed a nice repertoire of go-to moves to blow past defenders.

Malcolm Brent | Kimball Union (N.H.) | 6-4 | 2014 |
A smooth crossover followed by a made pull-up jumper was a constant sight to see when watching this New England guard. Has a great feel for the game and demonstrated a nice balance of passing and shooting.

Braxton Napier| Lighthouse Christian (Tenn.) | 5-8| 2015
We saw a glimpse of Napier’s great leaping ability when he rose up and pinned a ball on the backboard to break up a fast break opportunity. He’s a very active guard that did a great job on the glass today to go along with some nice takes to the basket.

Chase Wilson | Wissahickon (Pa.) | 5-11 | 2014
Wilson is a solid guard that showed that he can pass, dribble and shoot quite effectively. He shot the ball well today and was able to get in the line and draw fouls.

Bryan Rivers | Peddie (N.J.) | 6-1 | 2014
Rivers was extremely effective and aggressive attacking the basket today. The lefty did a great job absorbing contact and still be able to finish for layups. He also showed nice range on his jumpshot as well.

Alexander Mattina | NYC Lab School (N.Y.) | 6-3 | 2014
Mattina’s displayed great perimeter shooting today. He is a great leader for his team and can really fill it up quick.

Ricky Mixon | Roselle Catholic (N.J. | 6-2 | 2016
The rising sophomore is up there with some of the hardest workers in camp. The kid displayed a great motor that left it all out there on the floor all afternoon. Mixon is a tremendous slasher that refuses to be denied. He also did a great job at dumping it off to the open when driving to the paint.

Florent Bouttier | Vaugelas (France) | 5-9| 2014
You don’t find many players move better off the ball than the way Bouttier has this week. V-cutting and coming off of down screens is his game, and he usually follows that with a quick release and a made jumpshot. Bouttier finished nicely in the lane as well off curls and back door cuts for layups.

Terrell Bagley | Linden (N.J.) | 6-3 | 2014
There has been a lot of high-top fades sported this week, but not many have backed it up with their game quite as well as Bagley has. The 6-foot-3 combo guard has been strong to the rim all week and today he even showed off a little bit of his perimeter game. He’s a strong defender and rebounder as well.
