2013 Summer Classic East: Championship Day Top Performers

SONY DSCWith the 2013 Summer Classic East wrapping up, a few players in attendance truly stepped their game up for the final day. Here’s some of the players that stood out on the last day of the Summer Classic East:

David Runcie | Columbia High School (N.J.) | 6-1 | 2014 | King Street Kings (N.J.)
Runcie showed off plenty of defensive instincts in Thursday’s first game, reading passes well and stepping in front of them to start fast break opportunities.

Earl Potts | Archbishop Spalding (Md.) | 6-5 | 2013 | Cecil Kirk (Md.)
When he got into the open court, Potts delivered with force, slamming the ball down as much as he could.

Amir Maddred | Camden High School | 6-8 | 2013 | Gym Rats (N.J.)
Maddred was a force on the boards, grabbing any and every ball that didn’t find the bottom of the net. Once he secured it, Maddred was able to hit find teammates so that they cold push the tempo on the other end of the floor.

Jackson White | Benedictine College Prep (Va.) | 6-8 | 2015 | East Coast Fusion (Va.) 16U
White was making a living down in the low block, using an array of post moves to get around his defenders and get buckets.

Truman Moore | Gilbert High School (Ariz.) | 6-8 | 2015 | Arizona Stars
Whoever wanted to try and make their way through the paint had to get through Moore. Usually, that plan didn’t go too well, as Moore continually swatted away shots into the crowd of on-looking coaches and spectators.

Kassoum Yakwe | Our Savior New American (N.Y.) | 6-7 | 2016 | Team Scan (N.Y.) 16U
Another shot-blocker that rose to the occasion more than once, Yakwe made defenders think twice about their shots with his length and leaping ability.

Aaron Young | Virginia Episcopal School | 6-1 | 2014 | East Coast Fusion (Va.)
Young came up big when his team needed it most, draining a corner three-point shot as time expired to capture a 39-37 win for East Coast Fusion.

Tyshawn Myles | Washington Heights Expeditionary | 6-8 | 2015 | New Heights (N.Y.)
Myles impressed with numerous hustle plays that wouldn’t show up on the stat sheet. On several occasions, Myles was diving for loose balls and tipping rebounds to his teammates for second chance points.

Eric Anderson | Haverford School (Pa.) | 6-6 | 2014 | Jersey Shore Warriors (Pa.)
Anderson was able to do damage both in the paint and outside of the arc, scoring in a variety of ways all day on Thursday.

Kevin Degnan | Pearl River (N.Y.) | 6-8 | 2014 | Team Frenji (N.Y.)
The big man showed off plenty of post moves throughout the day, going through and around defenders to the bucket.

Tim Preston | Nashua South (N.H.) | 6-1 | 2014 | RI Hawks Black
Preston was always looking to get his teammates involved in the game. The guard was able to use the baseline to his advantage, drawing the defense towards him and kicking out to the open man for an easy look at the basket.

Obi Romeo | Greenbrier East HS (W.V.) | 6-9 | 2014 | East Coast Fusion
Against one of the top prospects in Goodluck Okonoboh, Romeo was able to box out and frustrate the highly touted senior while crashing the boards successfully against the opposition.

Tom Hunt | St. Andrew’s School (R.I.) | 6-2 | 2014 | RI Hawks Black
Hunt caught fire early in the semifinals against Jersey Shore Warriors, connecting on his first three shots (two of them came from beyond the arc) to give his team an early seven-point lead.

Dorian Johnson | Herndon High School (Va.) | 6-4 | 2014 | Virginia Elite
With 3.9 seconds left on the clock in the first overtime and the opposing team inbounding, Johnson stole the inbound and raced towards the basket for the game-winning layup as time expired.
