Top Performers From Day 2 of Summer Jam Fest

Another day down and our championships picture is becoming more and more clear. Four teams remain in the 14U division and eight remain in the 15, 16 and 17U bracket. While we came closer to crowning a champion, we also saw more players who dominated yesterday. Here are those guys:

Jeremiah Livingston/Stamford Peace/2015: This 5’11” point guard can score with the best of them. He is at his best when he is attacking the rim. What really makes him special is his ability to get by his first defender every time.

James Fives/JB Hoops/2015: Fives is the prototype for what JB Hoops puts an emphasis on: versatility. He can go into the post, bust a zone from mid-range, or even knock down an outside shot. Fives has been a mismatch for a lot of teams, which is why JB Hoops has made a big run in this tournament.

Brian Parker/PK Flash/2015: If you are a big man in the lane, you better watch out when this guy comes flying in. He has an uncanny ability to finish around the rim and get to the line. His strength is what separated him from the rest today.

Nate Sestina/BSA Select/2015: The 6-foot-9 forward from Cameron County High School did all he could against NJ Got Game, scoring a game-high 23 points including a two-handed jam. Despite his performance, BSA Select wasn’t able to hold onto a second half lead to advance to the next round of the 17U championship bracket.

Aaron Gress/Team PA/2015: Gress scored from all over the court in Team PA’s first game on Saturday against Loudoun United, which ended up being a laugher. A barrage of three-pointers from the 6-foot-2 rising senior from Central Dauphin was capped with a ferocious slam that put the icing on Team PA’s victor

Jared Frame/Exoressions Elite/2015: Frame led his Expressions team into the elite eight of the tournament with little to no disturbances. The crafty forward was deadly from three point land and displayed his leadership by hustling for lose balls and being vocal.

Hamidou Diallo/NYC Jayhawks/2017: is an up and coming young prospect who will play his high school ball at Putnam Science Academy (CT). Diallo proved why many scouts have been calling him a natural scorer. He got into the lane effortlessly and showed spurts of dominance.

Jackson Donahue/Middlesex Magic/2015: Jackson Donahues performance Saturday was self explanatory. The Penn commit dominated the offensive side of the court hitting three after three while also attacking the rim keeping the defense honest. Donahue looks to lead his dangerous Middlesex Magic team to back to back Hoop Group Jam Fest Championships!

Isaiah Still/NJ Got Game/2015: At 6-foot-6, he’s a phenomenal shooter that poses matchup problems for opposing SGs. Still can penetrate the lane and finish, as well. Expect his stock to explode here in late July.

AJ Brodeur/Middlesex Magic/2016: The Middlesex Magic big man is a work horse, diving for loose ball and crashing the glass. He knows his role and does it well. Really well, in fact. He’s pulled in double digit offers, from some of the top schools in the northeast.
