8:00AM- Players are finishing up with their early bird workouts, ready to continue competing here on day two. Plenty of players stepped up yesterday, but today is a new day and a new chance to impress. –@AndrewKoob

9:32AM- The first of the day’s six game sets will tip-off at 10:05 a.m. –@pfebbraro

9:32AM– Liking what I see from Andrew Riviello in stations this morning. I see why he was Lansdale Catholic’s (Pa.) top scorer last season. Has great form on his jump-shot and has been knocking them down pretty consistently from mid-range. Perhaps he’ll be included in today’s top performers. –@CabWashington

10:57AM- Stephen Sangree has had a couple good possessions, showing off a lot of hustle. Senior from Morristown Beard (NJ) School doing what he can to help to the team win. –@AndrewKoob

3:40PM- Coach Danny Nee is breaking down film as the afternoon session begins. –@pfebbraro

6:27PM- The final two game sets of Day Two will begin at 7 p.m. There will also be two more sweatshops before the day is over. Be sure to follow all the action on Twitter and Facebook to see who stands out as the day’s outstanding performers. –@pfebbraro

7:31PM- Midway through the first game of the evening session on Bollman Court, Amit Gattadahalli (Hedrndon HS, Va./2015) and Ben Sprauer (Red Bank Regional, N.J./2016) are each continuing to have a successful day. –@pfebbraro

7:39PM- One guy that’s impressed me tonight: Deontrey Jones. Lanky forward who really likes to get in the paint. Has some nice handles and good court vision as well. –@AndrewKoob

8:08PM- 2015 guard Cort Williams nails a last-second three-point shot to secure a 71-69 victory for his team. Not a bad way to make an impression on the scouts and coaches in attendance. –@AndrewKoob

9:14PM- The last game has ended and everyone’s heading to the dorms for the night. Plenty of top-notch performances, look for our post about those players and a couple of features as well. Check back tomorrow at 8:00AM for the start of day three. –@AndrewKoob
