Day Two Pitt Jam Fest Top Performers

Another day down, another step closer to crowning champions. As return home to rest up for a third and final day tomorrow, here are a few guys who impressed on this Saturday.

Cameron Reddish (Team Final | 2018)

He’s a 2018 kid already playing up a year, and the Team Final 2017 team is playing in the 17U bracket. With that being said, Reddish was one of the most impressive players seen throughout the tournament. At 6’6, he has great size and can score at all three levels efficiently. He’s athletic, mature beyond his age, and has tremendous upside. He’s one of the youngest kids in the 17U bracket, but the game comes naturally to him, and he dominated with a 17 point outing in a win over a solid Maryland 3D team.

Matt Donahue (Middlesex Magic | 2017)

Matt Donahue is showing coaches a very productive weekend. Over the past two days he is averaging 19 points per game and showing a well-rounded game. Not just a scorer, Matt had a high IQ on the floor and often plays “mistake free” basketball.

Myles Jones (Higher Level)

Shooter! Myles Jones had himself a great afternoon Saturday with a 20 point scoring effort. Of those 20 points, 18 came off three pointers. Jones is a talented shooter, as he showed yesterday.

Isaiah Wong (Mid Jersey Mavericks)

The Mid Jersey Mavericks 14u team had a successful day yesterday, advancing to the Elite Eight, and Isaiah Wong was a big reason why. He scored 32 points against the Northern Kings and followed with a 19 point effort in a bit of an upset win over Canada Elite.

Tyriek Railey (Jacksonville Magic | 2017)

Tyriek was another player we saw shoot the basketball well on Day 2. In his team’s game late Saturday night against the MD Rebels, Tyriek sunk 5 threes, and went on to score a game high 20 points.

Juwan Gray (Bump N Run | 2015)

Another unsigned senior, Gray showed that he could be the new school kind of big that everyone is looking for. At 6’7, he isn’t huge, but he’s athletic and can stretch the floor. He plays hard on both ends, runs the floor, and can shoot the deep ball when he’s set. He’s looking at a possible prep year, and some time in the weight room could lead to a D1 offer next year.

Camari Wilkerson (Mid Atlantic Select | 2016)

Camari is a tough and gritty player. He’s only listed as 5’9 in the books, but that doesn’t make him shy away from taking it in amongst the trees. He attacks the rim hard and goes at big men. Defensively, he’s also great at jumping the passing lanes and picking off passes for steals and fast breaks.

Kylan Guerra (New Heights | 2016)

Clutch. That is the best way to describe Kylan Saturday. In a tight game versus the NJ Shoreshots (Rice), Kylan went to the free throw line eight times and went 8-8 in a close game. His free throws helped shut the door on the Shoreshots and move New Heights to the next round, where he would then help them take down the Arizona Warriors.

Grant Golden (Virginia Elite | 2016)

His stock has been rising recently, and he continues to show why here at the Pittsburgh Jam Fest. Golden is a classic stretch 4, standing a solid 6’6 with the ability to shoot it out past three-point range. His shooting ability is what makes him special, but he’s not afraid to bang inside on both sides of the ball. Golden is a matchup nightmare, and has garnered a lot of attention recently and currently holds offers from Lehigh, Furman, Holy Cross, American and JMU.

Travis Bianco (Nike Team Florida | 2016)

Bianco is the type of wing that translates well to the next level. Standing 6’4, he’s a sniper from deep that will make you pay for closing out too hard. Throughout the day, he showed the ability to knock down the deep ball, then attack the closeout and finish at the rim with finesse. He finished with 18 points in a loss to Bump N Run, and had 22 points in a win over BSA 2.

CJ Williams (Richmond Squires | 2016)

If you’re looking for a versatile scorer, look no further than this 6’3 wing out from Virginia. Williams put on a clinic all day, showing his ability to create his own shot and score from all three levels. His versatility on the offensive end makes him a nightmare to guard, as he can spray it from deep or finish through contact at the rim. He had a bevy of coaches following him all day, and he didn’t disappoint with big performances each time out.

Robert Maull (Team NY | 2015)

The 5’8 unsigned senior put on a show with a 25 point outburst in a victory over rival G7 NY Elite. Although he’s undersized, Maull showed toughness and skill on the offensive end. He hit five three-pointers in the first half, and attacked contact fearlessly in the paint. He’s the type of player that excels as a small guard, as he’s skilled, hard working, and as tough as they come.

Nathan Knight (DC Blue Devils | 2016)

The first thing you notice is his superb size at 6’8, and his solid frame at 200+ lbs. However, as you watch you see that he’s a skilled wing with a big man’s body. Knight is a lot of fun to watch, and a nightmare to guard if you’re a defender. He can shoot it off the catch, attack in straight lines, and is a sneaky athlete that knows how to finish around the rim. A late addition to the DC Blue Devils, Knight did wonders for his stock showing his versatility this weekend.
