Day One Recap: Elite Session One


Tuesday kicked off the first day of Elite Session One and it did not disappoint. Campers, first, refined their skills at different stations, learning from our staff of expert coaches. Then, a couple of rim-shaking dunks and killer crossovers highlighted the evening’s games. We breakdown Day One’s top performers.

Day One Top Performers

Conner McBride (2016 / Flint Hill / Oakton, Va.): The 5-foot-11 guard always had his eyes up court and showcased phenomenal passing ability. In one of the most impressive plays of the day, McBride threw a no-look pass between his legs to give Winston Jones (Valley Stream HS) a wide open two handed slam.

Kellan Grady (2016 / Catholic Memorial / West Roxbury, Ma.): In only the first few games of the day, Grady proved that he was one of the top competitors in the camp. Despite being 6-foot-3, he battle on the boards against much larger big men. Above all, his ability to push the ball and score in transition was the most eye popping.

Justin Wright (2015 / HS for Construction / Queens, NY.): Wright used his blinding speed to drive into the lane with ease. Once he had his defender beat, the 6-foot-1 guard also displayed his uncanny ability to finish around the rim. He is definitely one to watch the rest of Elite Session One.

Kelly Hamilton (2015 / Roosevelt / Brooklyn, NY.): The 6-foot-9 big man snatched almost everything on the boards and his athleticism was apparent while playing in transition.

Brett Buisson (2016 / Godwin / Richmond, Va.): Buisson moved great without the ball and seemed to find every hole in opposing defenses. He also used his length and athleticism to finish around the basket and crash the offensive glass.

Mohammad Bamba (2017 / Westtown / Westtown, PA.): Bamba is a very long post at 6’9. Today he showed that he can do two things very well: crash the boards and dunk the basketball. Many young post players have trouble finishing strong at the rim, Bamba does not. He had several powerful dunks that shook the rim and caught people’s attention.

Unique McLean (2016 / Hoosac School / Hoosik, NY.): McLean is a very, very good guard. At 6’1 he is very quick and can attack the basket in transition. He also has incredible hops. Today, while on a fast break he threw the ball off the backboard to himself and finished it. Crazy athleticism plus good skill makes him a player to look for.

Day One is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to excitement and play making for Elite Session One.
