Within a two-day session, the Hoop Group Elite Team Camp hosted several of the premiere high school basketball programs in the nation.
Below are some of the teams that impressed in while participating in the summer team camp:
St. Anthony (Jersey City, NJ): The defending national champions are led by arguably the top floor general in the nation in rising senior Kyle Anderson. At 6’8, Anderson orchestrates the Friars offense to perfection, whether it’s on the the fast-break or in a half-court set. Jerome Fink, a 6’6 forward, has been the work-horse for the New Jersey-school and has done a great job under the boards as well.
Gonzaga (Washington D.C., DC): The two-time defending champs in the Hoop Group Elite Team Camp are back at another run for glory. Class of 2013 lead guard Nate Britt powers the Eagles. The smooth-lefty is joined by rising rising junior Kris Jenkins to form a solid duo on the offensive end. Big man Will Rassman has been effective on the block, scoring with his back-to-the-basket.Paul VI (Fairfax, VA): Several of Paul VI’s key players impressed during the Hoop Group Elite Camp Session 1, and the sharp play continued into key camp. Although without the services of sharp-shooting guard Patrick Holloway, the dynamic back-court of Stanford Robinson and Tilman Dunbarshas made defenses weary all camp long. The Panthers pulled out a great win in the quarter-finals against play-maker Aquille Carr and a tough Patterson (Baltimore, MD) team.
Roman Catholic (Philadelphia, PA): The Philly-based team is extremely young. They are also incredibly talented and with room to improve. The guard-play of Roman Catholic is magnificent, led by Shafeek Taylor (2013), Britton Lee (2013) and Shep Garner (2014). 2015′s Manny Taylor is the man down-low for Roman Catholic.
Patterson (Baltimore, MD): While Aquille Carr gets the job done for Patterson on the offensive end, the 2013 stud isn’t alone. Players such as Shakir Brown and Myrek Fowlkes get the job done when their 5’8 teammate draws the accustomed double-team. Although the effort resulted in a loss, Carr impressed mightidly with a 39-point performance against a defensively-gifted team in Paul VI. The scoring-guard was able to hurt defenses in numerous fashions.
Bullis (Potomac, MD): The top team in the American division at Team Camp, Bullis has been led by do-all forward Jonathan Tshibury. The 6’4 rising senior has been the catalyst for his Bullis squad during their participation in the Hoop Group event by creating shots for himself off the dribble as well as being the leader on the defensive end of the floor.
