Adidas Texas Classic, Day Three
Sports Academy (La.) def. Richmond (Va.) Squires For Title
Glen Davis, C, Sports Academy: They say he's got a future in pro football, but after this weekend his basketball future doesn't look bad either. Davis has skyrocketed up the charts and he dominated in the paint at this event. At over 300 pounds, he overpowered everyone. Against the Juice when Telfair missed, "Big Baby" was there to clean it up. In the title game against the Squires all he did was score 26 points on 10-11 from the field and 6-6 from the line. He's reached the elite level as a basketball player.
Joe Posey, SG, Squires: The guy made 7 3-pointers in a losing effort in the championship game. His stroke was on pretty much the entire event but 7 in the money game are pretty impressive.
Bombale Osby, PF, Squires: Call him whatever you want, a mini-Al Anagonye or a mini-Ousmane Cisse. The guy is 6-5 and an animal. He plays so hard and is a great athlete. He'll excel at the highest mid-major level possible or maybe even higher.
Marcus Monk, SF, Arkansas Hawks: In an era when guys try to do too much or do things they can't do, Monk plays within himself. He hustles, rebounds, passes and makes plays. He's not a shooter but it doesn't matter. He's a super team player.
Bryce Taylor, SG, Pump ‘n Run: When you're good at something, do it. Taylor can stroke it from downtown and that's what he does. He went 4-for-5 from downtown and didn't use the net. You better make him put it on the floor or he's going to rain down 3s.
Albert Webber, SG, Squires: Major college programs are now officially on the bandwagon. Webber did it all this weekend; off the bounce, from deep and getting to the rim. He was loose, having fun and making plays and it fueled the Squires to the title game.
Sebastian Telfair, PG, Juice All-Stars: The Juice demolished guys until they ran into Sports Academy. With an injured hand, Telfair really struggled form the field posting 8 points on 3-for-17 from the field (1-8 3s, 1-6 FTs). Prior to that, he really had it going and Juice was rolling.
Brian Harvey, SG, Pump ‘n Run: What a super body for a sophomore! This guy should be a big timer. He shot it well and plays hard. He's powerful and energetic.
Tasmin Mitchell, PF-SF, Sports Academy: The guy does a lot of different things. He can post, step up, pass and use his strong frame.
