Day of the Southern Jam Fest: Guards Who Impressed

IMG_9120

Hampton, VA– One day left in the Southern Jam Fest. As great of a two days as we’ve had, we’re expecting the best to be saved for Championship Sunday. Tons of high profile teams left, and countless high major Division 1 players. Here’s who impressed Saturday.

Justin Kier, Spectrum Sports Academy 17U

In a head-to-head matchup against Coleman, Kier more than held his own. A quick and athletic point guard, Kier was superb in transition, putting himself firmly on the radar of scouts in attendance. He elevated well in traffic and played a solid floor game for a Spectrum that was outmatched in terms of size and athleticism, but hung around with BWSL for much of the game.

Curtis Jones, Boo Williams 17U

Boo Williams is in the 17u Elite Eight Sunday and Chris Jones is just one of the reasons why. He is a prolific scorer, with an ability to score in all different ways. He can shoot the three, pull up from midrange and get to the hoop. The 6’2 guard holds offers from Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, NC State and Indiana, among others.

 

Wendell Moore, Team CP3 2019s

Moore came into the Southern Jam Fest billed as one of the top players in his class and did nothing to disprove that notion on Saturday. Early in the day, he helped his NC-based team beat hosting Boo Williams and finished the night with another win over Team Winston. He’s an extremely versatile offensive threat with the ability to play all over the court and make his teammates better. Make sure you remember his name.

Robert Colon, Juice All-Stars 17U

Despite a sweet 16 loss on Saturday, Robert was a stand out. He controlled the tempo offensively for Juice and delivered big shots for his team. He’s got a good jump shot and shoots the ball with great confidence. His shooting kept Juice in the game with DC Thunder Saturday.

DeAndre Hunter, Philly Pride 17U

After losing in the first round on Friday, Hunter and his team came out on Saturday looking to right the ship. The 6-foot-7 swingman scored 14 points — including a couple of treys — in a win over HC Elite and did so efficient. He has an effortless stroke from deep, can guard multiple positions and showcased a solid floor game as well. He has eight D-1 offers to his name.

Mikey Dixon, Diamond State Titans 17U

A scout’s favorite this weekend, Dixon displayed his scoring savvy, toughness, and leadership ability all at once in a hard-fought loss to Team Wall. Dixon scored 19 first half points before suffering an injury four minutes before the break. He returned in the second half and picked up right where he left off, carrying his team and bringing the Titans back from a 19-point halftime deficit to single digits for much of the second half.
