2016 Summer Jam Fest Day 1 Top Performers

Day one of the Summer Jam Fest was just a small preview of what is in store for the weekend at Spooky Nook. Here are some players who showed off their great talents on Friday night:

Eli Brooks | 2017 | Spring Grove (PA)

The Jersey Shore Warriors came up with a big win in their first contest of the tournament, and they were paced by the dynamic lead guard Eli Brooks on both ends of the court. Brooks got off to a quick start in the first half, scoring 16 quick points. He anticipated the passing lanes well and looked to consistently push the ball up the court for easy points. Brooks demonstrated the ability to knock down the perimeter jumper as well, and finished up with a team-high 21 points in a victory for his team.

Matt Donahue | 2017 | Northfield Mount Hermon (MA)

Middlesex Magic shot the lights out in their opening round contest, and they were paced by 6-foot-3 guard Matt Donahue, who drilled 7 in  the first half. Donahue is adept at working through screens to free himself. He recorded a game-high 26 points in a big win for the Magic.

Marcus McClary | 2017 | The Patrick School (NJ)

At 6-foot-4, Marcus McClary of demonstrated high level athleticism during the first night of action. As a result of their stingy defense, the NJ Playaz often found themselves on the break, where the left-handed wing did a great job filling the lanes. McClary crashed the boards hard, especially the offensive glass. He threw down several highlight worthy dunks.

Jonathan Noel | 2018 | St. Mark’s (MA)

A strong wing who likes to get downhill, but can also step out and hit the three, Jonathan Noel impressed on both ends of the floor for Basketball 2 The Limit 17U. Noel was matched up with bigger opponents, but his craftiness helped him be effective at consistently finishing around the basket. The 6-foot-4 rising junior was active and alert defensively as well.

Henrik Olamide Pedersen | 2017 | Falkonergavrens Gymnasium (DEN)

The length and versatility that Henrik Olamide Pederson possesses makes a him very intriguing prospect. The long-limbed 6-foot-7 combo forward has a great motor, big strong hands, and plays above the rim on both ends of the court. He was comfortable handling the ball for Global Squad Denmark, made some accurate skip passes, and showcased solid mobility when hedging screens.
