Dennis Green 6’3, Word of God ’13 (NC) – Green stood out today from the point guard position. He had the ball on a string, and was able to get through the defense with ease. Green also showed the ability to elevate with some impressive dunks. “I have a point guard mentality. If I make a good pass that leads to a bucket, it gets me going more than if I make a jump shot or a layup”, Green said,
Chris Obekpa 6’8, Our Savior New America ’12 (NY) - Obekpa is a game changer. With his shot blocking ability, he is able dictate the opponent’s offense. His length and size is so effective because of his ability to time his jump when blocking a shot. Players know that they will most likely get their shot blocked if they come into his area, and are constantly checking to see where he is.
Kendrick Ray 6’1, Middletown ’12 (NY) – Ray had an extremely impressive day. The point guard had been nothing but steady the first two days, but today he took it up a notch. Ray was very effective driving the ball to the basket, and proved to be just as effective from three-point range. The exclamation point on his day came when he split two defenders, and the lane was wide open. He did not disappoint, and threw down a one handed slam that had the gym buzzing.
Deion Evans 6’6, Imhotep Charter ’14 (PA) - A rising sophomore, Evans competed hard with the upperclassmen. His constant movement in the post on both sides of the floor showed that he could hold his own with the older, more experienced players. Evans also showed some range, stepping out and stroking a few three-pointers. The young left-hander had a very good day.
Gregory Senat 6’8, Elmont ’13 (NY) – Senat proved to be very effective in the post today. His back to the basket game was a huge factor. Senat used his big frame to seal his man, and demanded the ball down low. He also played tremendous post defense all day. When asked about only being 16 and competing against much older players, Senat said, “I like playing better kids so I can prove myself. Mostly I just hate to lose, so no matter who it is, I try to beat them.”
