Elite 2: Day Two Top Performers

SONY DSCDay two of Elite Camp 2, the first full day of the camp, was filled with talent and highlight reel plays. Here’s a few of the players that really stood out with their play:

Isaiah Whitehead | Lincoln (N.Y.) High School | 6-4 | 2014
Thunderous dunks, behind the back passes and the ability to make his teammates better all contributed to Whitehead starring on Day Two. While there has to be one, on this day he exhibited no weakness in any facet of his game.

Tristan Thompson | Chinguacousy Secondary School (Ont.) | 6-5 | 2015
Throwing down big dunks, makiong steals, and quickly driving the lane was some of the strengths exhibited by Thompson today. In one six-second span during his team’s evening game he made a steal, quickly ran the floor for a layup before making another steal and cutting back through the lane for another basket.

Jamil Hood | Green Tech HS (N.Y.) | 6-1 | 2014
Hood showed his tremendous leaping ability as he threw down a couple nice dunks on the day. The 6-foot-1 floor leader is lightning quick–that combined with the outstanding passes that he dished made him extremely tough to guard on the day.

Desi Rodriguez | Lincoln (N.Y.) High School | 6-6 | 2014
After receiving his first offer from Hofstra on July 5, Rodriguez elevated his game at Elite II when he dropped 30 in an afternoon game.

Cameron Gregory | St. Stephens/St. Agnes (Md.) | 6-6 | 2014
Gregory performed an array of moves in the paint for easy buckets. His great rebounding combined compiled with a few made shots from three, helped his team pick up a pair of wins today.

Da’Jon Streeter | Rise Academy (Pa.) | 6-3 | 2014
Streeter was streaking all day from beyond the arc. Making four threes in one quarter was just a sample of his scoring highlights on the day.

Kwame Morton | Lincoln (N.Y.) | 6-5 | 2015
Morton was stellar around the rim for his team today. From putbacks around the rim to finished layups in the half-court, the junior was converted almost everything from in the paint area. He also dropped in a couple of threes as well.

Donte’ Divincenzo | Salesianum (Del.) | 6-4 | 2015
His red hair and tremendous leaping ability has him drawing comparisons to Blake Griffin, but the physical similarities stop when you check out his skinny 6-foot-4 frame. Nonetheless, Divincenzo’s athleticism played a major role in his team picking up some nice wins today.

Manny Dosanjh | SouthWest Academy (Fla.) |6-0 | 2014
Dosanjh showed today that he’s a great floor leader that doesn’t mind doing all of the dirty work in order to win. The lefty point guard showed a great touch from deep and always made the extra pass to open teammates. The kid has a great balance of intangibles, work ethic and skill that any collegiate coach has to like. Was very vocal on defense all day as well, #BeElite.

Kory Holden | Bennett (Md.) | 6-2 | 2014
Holden was extremely aggressive attacking the basket today. It seemed like whenever he touched the ball he seemed like he was blowing by his defenders for a bucket on getting fouled at the rim and shooting two.

Jesse Case | Heritage (Va.) | 5-11 | 2015
Averaged nine points a game during Day Two and had the ability to handle and distribute the ball. He displayed a good feel for the game no matter the situation.

David Stevens | Allentown Central Catholic (Pa.) | 6-1 | 2014
Was strong with the ball all day. He handled the ball well in most situations and his ability to score helped to keep defenses honest and open up his teammates for some open looks.

Nedzad Bakic | Garfield (N.J.) High School | 6-0 | 2015
Running the point, Bakic’s ability to control the game, dish and score, particularly from 3-point range, put him on the radar during the second day of camp.

Matthew MacKinnon | Carrboro (N.C.) High School | 6-1 | 2014
Teaming with Isaiah Whitehead would usually overshadow most players, but MacKinnon’s sweet stroke from 3-point range and his ability to make the extra pass and find the open man seemed to mesh well with his teammate’s throughout the day.

Naeem Swinton | Asheville (N.C.) High School | 5-11 | 2014
Defense was the strength of his game but he was also dropping in 3’s and his quickness in the transition game led to him converting several easy layups.

Oscar Cabrera | Rise Academy (Fl.) |6-5 | 2014
Cabrera was a huge focal point for his squad all day. Cabrera used his great size and strength to muscle smaller guards and create his own shot. Cabrera showed a well-rounded performance as he converted on a number of mid-range jumpers and floaters/layups in the line.

Bruce Moore Jr. | McDonough School (Md.) | 6-5 | 2016
Moore played hard on Day 2 of camp. He showed off a little bit of his athletic ability during outdoor play when he raised up for a two-handed dunk in traffic.

Isiah Jennings | Lehigh Valley Academy (Pa.) | 5-11 | 2016
The combo guard had a pair of double-digit performances on the day. Jennings showed great range scoring most of his baskets from the perimeter. Jennings also gave a great effort on defense as well. He was often stuck with the assignment of guarding the opposition’s top guard.

Nile Godfrey | Seton Hall (N.J.) High School | 6-0 | 2015
Godfrey abused his defenders in his first game on Wednesday, blowing by them with plenty of quickness and finishing with smooth layups.

Rachid Shimou | Piscataway (N.J.) High School | 6-2 | 2014
When his team needed just one shot, Shimou stepped up with a buzzer beating three-pointer to give his team a 55-53 victory.

Jordan Sears | Plainfield (N.J.) High School | 6-4 | 2014
Sears started a beautiful possession with a big block on the defensive end that led to an easy transition bucket for his teammate.

William Tchiengang | Fredericksburg Christian (Va.) School | 6-8 | 2015
The big man was a dominant force in the paint, using an array of post moves to both slip through and power his way to the basket.

Tariq Owens | St. Vincent Pallotti (Md.) High School | 6-8 | 2014
Owens, who verbally committed to Ohio University last month, was a force on the defensive end, altering numerous shots with his length and swatting away a couple into the stands.
