Myles Davis & Co. Crowned Hoop Group Elite Camp Champions

Myles Davis at Hoop Group Elite Basketball Camp

Heading into the Hoop Group Elite Camp, Myles Davis, a senior scoring-guard from Notre Dame Prep (MA), was one of the more highly-regarded prospects. A stellar performance from the New Jersey native was expected, but Davis went above and beyond expectations during his time in Reading, PA this week.

Aside from impressing coaches with his ability to shoot from distance, Davis was a superb leader on the floor for Team #1. Coached by former Rice High School (NY) coach Dwayne Mitchell, Davis was the general on the floor.

Team #1 charged through the competition, leading up to the highly-anticipated championship game.

It wasn’t until the Davis-led Team #1 matched up against Team #41 and the likes of talented prospects Arthur Edwards, Deonte Houston and Terrence Bobb-Jones that they were pushed to the limit.

A back-and-forth affair throughout the first half, it would be Arthur and Team #41 who would maintain the early third quarter lead.

With hundreds of college coaches in attendance, neither team would back down without a fight.

The defensive intensity was high, as both teams made their opponents earn every basket. Good thing for Team #1 that Davis’ shooting ability stretches well beyond the three-point arc. The rising senior made defenses pay for backing off.

With under ten seconds remaining in the ballgame, Team #41’s Houston would step to the free-throw line, up by one point, shooting the front end of a one-and-one. The Houston free throws clanked off the rim and wound up in the hands of Valworth Jones. The Nia Prep (NJ) prospect would be unintentionally fouled, sending the 6’3 guard to the charity-stripe with four seconds left and his team down one.

Jones calmly went to the line and sunk the free throw, tying the game. He also knocked down the second, giving Team #1 the lead in the final seconds and the eventual championship victory.

While Arthur played a fantastic game, it was Davis’ will to win that was the difference maker.

Congratulations to Team #1 on their Hoop Group Elite Exposure Camp championship!
