Camp Right Way - ChicagoWritten by: Clark Francis - hoopscooponline.com September 03, 2013
When ranking the top players at this year's John Lucas Resources Camp Right Way, which was held over the weekend at Attack Athletics in Chicago, IL, it pretty much was a rerun of the Jr Phenom Camp that we attended a month ago in San Diego, CA. If you will recall, when the dust hard cleared at that camp 5'0 8th Grader Chase Adams from Chicago, IL, 5'8 8th Grader Marquis Brown from Burr Ridge, IL, 6'3 8th Grader Amari Sherrod from Gary, IN, and 5'9 8th Grader Zion Young from Dolton, IL had all played well enough to make a case for the top billing in camp and, as a result, we made it a four-way tie for the #1-spot in our rankings.
However, this time around Adams left little doubt about the fact that he is the best player, as his basketball IQ, decision making, ball handling and passing skills, and ability to make those around him better are totally off the chart. He also is explosive off the dribble, plays excellent defense, and showed that he also can keep you honest with his outside shooting. The only drawback is his lack of size. However, if he grows to the same height as his older brother, who is 6'2, we're may be talking about somebody with all of the ingredients necessary to be one of the best point guards to ever play the game. We give Brown the nod over Young and Sherrod, but, in fairness to the other two, we got more looks at this athletic wing who is capable of playing both inside and outside and has the toughness, athleticism, and similar-like game necessary to draw Stacey Augmon-like comparisons. Sherrod is versatile enough and skilled enough to step out on do things on the perimeter, but, with his strength, toughness, and aggressiveness on the boards, it's clear that he does his best work inside. Young is one of those guys who can do a little bit of everything, but what he does best is score and slash to the basket and he looks better than ever after being sidelined with a serious injury a year ago.
Rounding out the top five players in the camp was 5'10 8th Grader Courtney Ramey from St. Louis, MO and this versatile athletic wing really impressed us with his scorer's mentality, although he's more of a slasher than a shooter. We also liked the high level of intensity that 6'1 8th Grader Justin Boyd from Chicago, IL brought to the table, as this athletic combo forward used his quick hands to get more than his share of rebounds and blocked shots and also stepped outside, where he proved to be one of the better outside shooters in camp. One of the best inside players in camp clearly was 6'2 8th Daniel Carey from Crown Point, IN and he made a living attacking the basket and dominating on the boards. One of the best athletes was 5'8 7th Grader Matthew Brown from Kenosha, WI and this slashing wing also get the nod as the best 7th Grader in camp. The best player not previously on our radar screen was 6'1 8th Grader Torrance Watson from Florissant, MO. And, although, he is most effective when he is blocking shots, rebounding, scoring around the basket, and running the court, he also has a soft shooting touch and showed that he can knocked down the mid-range jumper. The best pure point guard other than Chase Adams in camp was 5'1 8th Grader James McKyan from Spring Hill, TN and his speed and quickness, nose for the ball, understanding of how to play the game, and ability to make big shots set him apart from the rest of his peers. It's hard not to like 6'1 8th Grader Noah Thomas from Cypress, TX when the outside shot is falling and this was the case in this camp. The second best 7th Grader in camp was 6'3 Jr Kyle Rode from Lexington, KY and this athletic white kid has an excellent combination of size and skills and he too was one of the better outside shooters in camp. One of the most skilled and best players in the work-outs was 6'0 8th Grader Joseph Wieskamp from Muscatine, IA. He has an excellent mid-range game, has a high basketball IQ, plays excellent defense, and seems to have a knack for always being around the ball. The most intriguing player clearly was 6'10 8th Grader Connor Vanover from Little Rock, AR, but we give 6'4 8th Grader Messiah Jones from Aurora, IL the nod in our rankings below due to the fact that they are based primarily on performance in camp and not necessary what a player might be down the road. Jones is long athletic big man with nice frame and he runs court extremely well and is active around the basket, aggressive on the boards, and is a natural shot blocker. Vanover has good hands and knows how to effect the game with his length and shot blocking ability. He also can score around the basket and gets his share of rebounds, but also lacks strength and stamina and, as a result, is more of a project than a finished project. Our Ranking of the Top 40 Players based primarily on performance at the John Lucas Resources Camp Right Way is as follows: 1) 5'0 8th Grader Chase Adams from Chicago, IL, 2) 5'8 8th Grader Marquis Brown from Burr Ridge, IL, 3) 5'9 8th Grader Zion Young from Dolton, IL, 4) 6'3 8th Grader Amari Sherrod from Gary, IN, 5) 5'10 8th Grader Courtney Ramey from St. Louis, MO, 6) 6'1 8th Grader Justin Boyd from Chicago, IL, 7) 6'2 8th Grader Daniel Carey from Crown Point, IN, 8) 5'8 7th Grader Matthew Brown from Kenosha, WI, 9) 6'1 8th Grader Torrance Watson from Florissant, MO, 10) 5'1 8th Grader James McKyan from Spring Hill, TN, 11) 6'1 8th Grader Noah Thomas from Cypress, TX, 12) 6'3 7th Grader Kyle Rode from Lexington, KY, 13) 6'0 8th Grader Joseph Wieskamp from Muscatine, IA, 14) 6'4 8th Grader Messiah Jones from Aurora, IL, 15) 6'10 8th Grader Connor Vanover from Little Rock, AR, 16) 6'0 8th GraderJoffari Brown from Willowbrook IL, 17) 5'9 8th Grader Duane Washington from Detroit, MI, 18) 5'9 8th Grader Brandon Hurt from Richton Park, IL,19) 7th Grader Malik Onyeali from Chicago, IL,20) 5'3 8th Grader Joseph Johnson from Indianapolis, IN, 21) 5'11 8th Grader Antoine Davis from Houston, TX, 22) 5'6 7th Grader Antonio Reeves from Chicago, IL, 23) 5'4 8th Grader Tai Strickland from Lexington, KY, 24) 6'1 8th Grader Dorian Tisby from Louisville, KY, 25) 6'2 8th Grader Davis Bryant from Louisville, KY, 26) 5'6 7th Grader Rylan Jones from North Logan, UT, 27) 6'4 8th Grader Jamal Whittlesey from Wilmington, DE, 28) 6'3 8th Grader Musa Jallow from Bloomington, IN, 29) 6'2 8th Grader Kellen Witherell from Northbrook, IL, 30) 5'8 8th Grader A.J. Green from Cedar Falls, IA, 31) 5'9 8th Grader Anthony Lynch from South Elgin, IL, 32) 5'10 8th Grader Curtis White from Little Rock, AR, 33) 5'7 8th Grader Christian Payne from Yorkville, IL, 34) 4'11 7th Grader DeSean Woods from Morehead, KY, 35) 4'9 7th Grader Frederick Cleveland from Richton Park, IL, 36) 5'11 7th Grader Grayson Green from University Heights, OH, 37) 5'8 8th Grader Xavier Castaneda from Chicago, IL, 38) 5'9 8th Grader Kenneth Daniel from Mequon, WI, 39) 5'10 8th Grader Darius Kinnell from Blackwood, NJ, and 40) 5'3 8th Grader Timothy Steward from Detroit, MI.
CAMP RIGHT WAY DAY 1 RECAPWritten by: Nick Aiello - Contributing Editor - NY2LASPORTS.COM September 03, 2013
Saturday kicked off a great end of the summer scene as Camp Right Way, run by former NBA star John Lucas and his staff, got several young basketball players from around the midwest etc. into the gym to develop their skills and competitive spirits. Each kid put forth great efforts throughout the day and evening Saturday during drill sessions and organized play. Some players like Marquis Brown (Burr Ridge, IL), Antoine Davis (Houston, TX) Courtney Ramey (St. Louis, MO) and others, stood out as 7th and 8th graders to watch closely for entering high school over the next couple years. Here’s a look at some of the camp’s top performers and some notable players who also performed at a very high level in Chicago...
DAY 1 TOP PERFORMERS
CHASE ADAMS - 2018 - PG
5-0 - ARIEL ACADEMY - CHICAGO, IL
Adams was fun to watch as he gives it %100 every second he is on the floor. Not only does he hustle, he is as competitive as it gets and shows that fire in his approach, controlling the offense, attacking when he sees opportunities and using his quickness on both ends. Adams showed good handle with the ball and proved he can knock down the outside shot without sacrificing his form.
MARQUIS BROWN - 2018 - G
5-10 - ARIEL ACADEMY - BURR RIDGE, IL
Brown has good size and build already that fits more like a wing, but he has the skills to play either guard spot. He handled the ball well in drills and competition, constantly was attacking the rim, finished plays around the hoop and made good passes as well. Very athletic and explosive with solid defense too.
MATTHEW BROWN - 2019 - G
5-8 - ST. JOSEPH CATHOLIC ACADEMY - KENOSHA, WI
Brown was impressive at Camp Right Way with his hustle and his constant offensive attack. Brown showed he can pretty much get to the hoop at will, but excels finishing in transition. His handles are strong, he is both fast and quick and can change games when he gets hot defensively.
XAVIER CASTANEDA - 2018 - SG
5-8 - INTER AMERICAN SCHOOL - CHICAGO, IL
Castaneda followed up an excellent showing at the Generation Next Camp with great effort and play at Camp Right Way. The young two-guard handles the ball well, can shoot it beyond the three-point line, finished well in transition and made the hustle plays all the time.
ANTOINE DAVIS - 2018 - PG
5-11 - HOMESCHOOL - HOUSTON, TX
Davis has a great frame and clear basketball intelligence when competing. The quick and smooth lead guard commanded the offense and defense with strong leadership qualities, and showed off his skill package as well... handling it well, making smart passes and displaying range with his jump shot. Davis also showed he can finish with either hand in traffic. Very controlled and fluid player already.
COURTNEY RAMEY - 2018 - PG
5-10 - WEBSTER GROVES M.S. - ST. LOUIS, MO
Ramey was Ramey again Saturday, doing a little bit of everything, particularly on the offensive end. Ramey has great handles and did an excellent job sharing the basketball and making his teammates better as point guards are supposed to do. He made plays with the ball going to the basket and controlled tempo. One of the more polished 8th graders there is and yet has a ton of room to keep improving.
KYLE RODE - 2019 - F
6-3 - LEXINGTON CHRISTIAN ACADEMY - LEXINGTON, KY
Rode wowed Saturday with a strong combination of skills, size and poise on the court. Only entering the 7th grade, Rode has excellent length and has great coordination. He ran the floor well, was very good handling the ball and showed shooting stroke that extends to the perimeter. Should be exciting to see where Rode can take his game as he continues to hone his skills and is likely to reach 6-6 or 6-7 by the time he is done growing.
AMARI SHERROD - 2018 - PF
6-3 - PIERCE M.S. - GARY, IN
Sherrod kept improving as the day progressed in drills Saturday and was even better in competition during the games. He is a strong and athletic young forward with a great frame that moves explosively. Sherrod finished well going to the hoop and played strong defense also.
TORRENCE WATSON - 2018 - F
6-0 - WHITFIELD M.S. - FLORISSANT, MO
Watson is another forward with great size and upside that continued to impress as the camp wore on. In drills, he hustled and showed developing tools. Though he is still raw, the pieces are in place and he showed he can be effective defensively with his length and crashing the boards, but also did a good job around the rim offensively
JOE WIESKAMP - 2018 G/F
6-0 - WEST M.S. - MUSCATINE, IA
Wieskamp had a really strong showing Saturday working hard through every drill and showing toughness in the games. The blossoming wing showed he can shoot the mid-range jumper efficiently, attacked the rim well off the bounce and worked hard defensively grabbing rebounds and getting in passing lanes.
DARRYL BROOKS JR. - 2019 PG
5-6 - BROOKFIELD ACADEMY - MENOMONEE FALLS, WI
The talented young lead guard impressed at times on Saturday. He handles the ball well, sees the floor well, and has the ability to attack off the bounce to create or score while showcasing a solid perimeter stroke at times as well. A solid young floor general on the rise.
DANIEL CAREY - 2018 - F
6-2 - PIERCE M.S. - CROWN POINT, IN
Carey displayed high-level type athleticism and a great motor. He played fast and hard up and down the court, grabbing rebounds on both ends of the floor and sprinted down court in transition. Carey attacked the rim hard and did a good job of finishing, including one he looked ready to dunk but made the right decision to lay it in off the glass for the sure basket instead.
TYLER HERRO - 2018 - G
5-9 - WHITNALL - GREENFIELD, WI
Herro is a terrific young combo guard with good size. He is a tremendous perimeter shooter, but is dangerous because of his ability to attack the lane and hit mid-range jumpers and floaters as well. He did a good job breaking down the defense at times Saturday and showed his defense is coming along as well.
A.J. GREEN - 2018 - G
5-8 - CEDAR FALLS M.S. - CEDAR FALLS, IA
Green is a tough young guard who can rotate either one or two. He showed quickness and grit in drills, attacked the hoop strong at times and knocked down some tough shots as well.
MESSIAH JONES - 2018 - PF
6-1 - SIMMONS M.S. - AURORA, IL
Jones stepped up at Camp Right Way and showed incredible shot blocking instincts. He is a very athletic forward and showed his toughness defensively, as well as displayed developing skills with the ball in his hands on offense. The pieces are there for him to transition to more of a small forward role if need be, but he plays hard and instinctively in the post already.
MUSA JALLOW - 2018 - PF
6-2 - BLOOMINGTON NORTH M.S. - BLOOMINGTON, IN
Jallow is raw but showed great control and effort throughout the day Saturday at camp. For his size he handles the ball alright, moves well and hustles and does a good job on the glass. Jallow clearly has room to grow, literally, and should be a post player to keep an eye on as he progresses over the next few years.
On the last day of camp we had some of the same culprits from day one step up along with some surprises. All in all I was impressed with the perimeter play of some of the young guards in the camp. It was good to see kids learning how to play the game the right way at an early age. Of course being in Chi-town they still brought the flair with their game. Listed below is a review of some of the overall talent at the camp.
6’1 8th grader Justin Boyd from Chicago wasn’t lacking anything in his game. Players of course he can always get better, but Boyd has it all and from a high energy level. He was personable and high academic kid on top of all the basketball skills. The sky’s the limit for young Justin.
5’ 8th grader, Chase Adams from Chicago is a coach’s dream. He’s the type of player you can put on the floor and you can relax and go read a book. He’s vocal, gets everyone involved and knocks down the big shots and yeah do I need to mention again, he’s only a 8th grader. He must get taller, but he won’t need to get six foot to be successful.
5’11 8th grader, Antoine Davis from Houston has star written all over him. Some may say I’m a little bias because I see him workout a lot in Coach Lucas gym, but for me this weekend that was the opposite. I had high expectations and Antoine was going to have to play his behind off to impress me and that he did. He showed all them hours in the gym weren’t for nothing. I foresee is him getting better and better because of his great work ethic.
5’8 8th grader, Marquis Brown from Chicago will be a forced to reckon with on the Chicago high school level in the years to come. I thought he played a little erratic at times but always played with a high motor. He lives in the lane and knows what to do when he gets there. When he learns how to play with pace his game will launch off.
5’10 8th grader Courtney Ramey from St.Louis. Ramey is the consummate point guard. Making the game easy for his teammates is what he does. Long limbs and still filling out his body make him a potential game changing point if he gets anywhere over 6-3. Handles improved and has added the floater to his arsenal.
5’8 8th grader, Robert Heath from Pennsylvania via Australia has a special flair about him. He’s skilled, can shoot the rock and makes his teammates better. When he gets the extra wiggle out his game he could be special.
5’8 8th grader, AJ Green from Iowa showed his floor general skills both days. His game never gets to high or to low, he plays with great pace and steadily plays with his head up ready to make something happen. Hes a coaches dream and should make an immediate impact when he hits the high school level.
6’1 8th grader, Dorian Tisby from Louisville. Fresh off the football field Tisby was not as sharp as we had hoped. He did compete and play hard. His potential to become the player Ive envisioned him becoming is still there.
6’4 8th grader, Jamal Whittlesey from Delaware is a player to watch for me. He’s 300 pounds with soft feet and good hands. You would think football his sport, but he definitely has a chance in hoop. When the years go by and that baby fat sheds you can have a real stud on your hands.
5’10 7th grader, Malik Onyeali from Chicago was one of my favorite players to watch because he always went hard. He liked to attack and is a hard nose defender. Only thing has me nervous is, he most control all that energy because he got a little frustrated and ill mannered. When he learns to channel that to his game, he’ll even be more fun to watch.
7th grader, De’Sean Woods from Kentucky got overshadow by the play of Chase Adams a little yesterday but he still showed when he had the ball in his hands what he can do. He is a little floor general who is comfortable getting in the lane and making things happen. He is lightning quick like his father UK Wildcat great and current Morehead State Head coach Sean Woods.
5’4 8th grader Tai Strickland and his 4’10 7th grade brother Terrell both have their fathers (NBA legend Rod Strickland) handles and his tenacious attitude. Both are a little undersized at the moment but you can see a spurt coming. When that happens you better watch out.
5’9 8th grader, Zion Young, Chicago. Young is a very athletic and intense guard. He competes every possession and is tenacious on defense. His ball handling needs to improve and his shot has much improved from last time I saw him. Very fun to watch.
5’4 6th grader Nimari Woods from Chicago was one of the youngest players in camp but it didnt show in his play. He played with poise and confidence and was willing to go in and compete with much bigger and stronger players. His skill sets beyond his years.
5’10 8th grader, Darius Kinnel from NJ is a scorer who gets buckets. He stays in attack mode and is steadily trying to get to the rack. He can knock down the deep three on or off the dribble. He showed when he wants, he can be a very good defender.
5’4 8th grader, Cortez Bailey from Chicago can straight out handle the rock. He is another one of those Chi-Town point guards, who looks like the future leaders of the city. He dropped dimes and finished at the bucket at will. I really liked his court vision.
5’9 8th grader, Duane Washington Jr.- Washington has improved his conditioning tremendously since last year. His game has elevated and is now on pace to be one of the better guards in his class when it is all said and done. His shot is smooth and he understands when to shoot and when to pass.
5’9 8th grader, Kenneth Daniel from Wi is a strong and makes things happen down low. He runs the floor and knows how to finish. He showed a nice mid range game and has good feet and hands.
5’9 8th grader, Kaleb Thorton, Chicago product had a very good weekend. Showing his very polished fundamental package. He needs to work on his floater game for him to make that next step.
Coach Lucas has worked out the likes of Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, high school phenoms the Harrison twins, but the the thing that really makes him proud is the developments of players like 2015 6 8 Caleb Swanigan and 2018 6 10 Connor Vanover. You have Caleb whos built like a offensive tackle with not much skills and his mentors one of the top football agents in the business and kid kept getting ask over and over again how his not playing football. Now fast forward 3 years and half the Big Tens knocking all on his door for basketball. Now we have the pleasure of seeing Connor a scrawny kid from Arkansas who two years ago could barely chew bubble gum and run. Fast forward to this past weekend, the big kid is showing all type of promise, that In two or three years if he keeps improving the way he has been, I can see Duke, Stanford, and Georgetown all knocking on the door.
Camp Right Way Chicago Top ProspectsWritten by: Van Coleman September 07, 2012
We attended John Lucas Camp Right Way this past weekend and had the opportunity to see some of the top middle school talent in the Midwest at the Attack Facility on the west side of Chicago. Unfortunately it was a big weekend for middle schools in the Windy City and kept about a dozen of the Chicago areas best from coming, but despite that there was a talented group of players at Lucas Camp Right Way and heres a look at the top talent we observed this weekend in Chicago.
Elite 8 - (Listed by Height)
Kelvin Calhoun - 6-5/2017 Warrenville Heights, OH Memorial MS - Strong and physical big really worked glass and finished in paint. He needs to work on conditioning to lift game to level skills promised around the hoop.
Brian Bowen II - 6-4/2017 Saginaw, MI MS/HS - Top overall prospect in Camp, he can score from arc to rim. Long and skilled wing who can dominate in the paint on defensive end with his length and timing. He reminded some in attendance of young Anthony Davis skill-wise ... just needs to add six inches.
Jamal Nixon - 6-3/2017 Plainfield, IL Aux Sable MS - Skilled wing can take it off glass and go End to End. He hits mid-range J off the dribble. He is just scratching surface on offensive end. He has good length and showed he can defend staright up and block shots.
Connor McCaffery - 6-3/2017 Coralville, IA North Central MS Sweet shooting lefty has combo skills and flat out strokes it from three or off the dribble on the pull-up from 17-feet to the baseline. He has good size and doctors project he will grow to 6-6 before he tops out.
Trevon Duval - 6-1/2017 New Castle, DE Standford School - Active wing, got on glass finished drive and is good passer in the open court. He hit pull-up from 15-feet, but needs to extend his shot to the arc to reach future potential athletics promise.
Nojel Eastern - 5-10/2017 Chicago, IL Chute MS - Quick and explosive point guard can create or score then lock you down on te defensive end of the court. He is a cerebral floor leader who has potential to develop into a elite point in the future.
Justin Roberts - 5-11//2017 Indianapolis, IN Lincoln MS - Strong & quick point can knock down the three, penetrate and finish in the lane or dish it to the open man. He dominated game at times with his ability to set you up with his perimeter jumper than attack the hoop off the dribble.
Willie Herrenton - 5-9/2017 Quick point w/range to three with handle to create dribble drive, then finish or hit open man on wing or baseline cutter. He can lock you down on "D" and was a terror when his team was pressing.
Sweet 16 plus 1
Will Rodgers III - 6-3/2017 Saginaw, MI MS/HS - Long and bouncy forward can score around hoop or pop out and hit elbow jumper. He gets on glass and can start the break with pass.
Phillip Flory - 6-2/2017 Wisconsin Rapids, WI MS/HS - Good shooting wing with range to three cn knock it down if left open on perimeter. He has ok handle and showed he could drive, but needs strength to reach potential game shows.
Carson Newsome - 5-11/2017 Waukegan, IL Jefferson MS - Long wing who can score off dribble in traffic. Good defender who uses his length and quicks to "D" you up. He has solid handle to create drive and pull-up jumper.
Tommy Schmock - 5-10/2017 Middleberg Heights, OH St. Bartholomew - Scoring combo just missed top list. He has range to three and the handle to create shot going left or right. He has good mid-range game and did finish at the hoop too.
Isaac Ng - 5-8/2018 Las vegas, NV Calvary Christian - Jeremy Lin look-alike & play alike can flat out score from around the perimeter with his jumper or off the dribble with floater in the paint. Strength ket to future levels.
Zion Young - 5-8/2018 Dolton, IL Christ Our Savior - Quick slasher can score off dribble or with 15-footer on pull-up off the drive. He is aggressive defender whose stock will rise as he extends his shot and improves his decisions.
Duane Washington Jr - 5-7/2017 Caledonia, IL MS - Solid point came into own day two and drilled jumper from three all over the court and showed he had a solid pull-up game too. He sees court and can deliver the rock off the dribble.
Jaylin Fleming - 5-7/2018 Chicago, IL Home schooled - Talented young lead guard has excellent ball handling skills and ability to deliver the rock off the dribble. He has length and quicks to become a top notch defender in time too.
No.11 Quam Ayo Dosunmu - 4-10/2018 Chicago, IL Beasley MS - Young, but small point has excellent floor leaders skill set. He can shake and bake bigger guards and is a pinpoint passer. He can hit shot if left open. One to watch as he adds inches in future.
Top 25 - (Best of the Rest)
T.J. Waldon 6-4/2018 Indianapolis, IN - Long, but young insider really came on day two. He really finished around hoop with length and bounce.
Justin Smith 6-3/2017 Buffalo Grove, IL Aptakikisic MS - Physical insider can post and score around the hoop or board and start the break.
Brennen Woods 6-1/2017 Carpenters. IL Dundee MS - This front court talent finishes on the baseline, created floor burns with his effort, and showed he can score on pop out from 12-feet with jumper.
Derrick Veasley Jr. 5-8/2018 Euclid, OH Forest Park - Solid lead guard who can deliver the rock off the dribble to open man or who can drive and finish in the lane. He had range to arc to set up drive.
Gavin Root 5-8/2017 Elizabethtown, KY Bluegrass MS - This young combo came on over the weekend, he has solid range to three point arc and is good shooter off pull-up too. He is a solid passer who got ball to post.
Tyree Spencer 5-7/2017 Berkeley, IL MS - Solid combo can attack the hoop with both hands and finish in the paint with floater or pull-up. He showed range to three to keep "D" honest.
Bryan Blanks 5-7/2017 Kansas City, MO Hogan Prep - Solid ball handler with combo skills can pass it off the dribble or knock down jumper from the arc or in the mid-range.
Isaiah Rice 5-4/2017 Carmel, IN MS - More the combo/scorer of the talented young brother duo, he can finish in traffic and hit jumper to the arc. Just needs inches to reach potential.
Malachi Rice 5-4/2017 Carmel, IN MS - Excellent ball handler with all the point guard tools delivers rock to the open man with regularity.
There were another 18 players at the Attack Facility over the weekend that showed the potential to play college basketball in the future. We hope we get the opportunity to see them progress over the next couple of years and reach their goals of playing at the division one levels.
