Peach Jam: Day 2, Part B

NORTH AUGUSTA, Ga. -- During the second day of the Nike Peach Jam it was Nerlens Noel, Jabari Parker and Jarnell Stokes that stood out as the top performers.

Kyle Anderson, SF, Playaz – Up to his old tricks, Anderson dominated the game against the City Rocks at times and made the biggest play of the game by hitting a 10-foot runner to give the Playaz the go ahead bucket. His skill level, passing ability and mid-range game are tremendous. He finished with what looked like an easy 20 points on 9-for-16 shooting.

Ricardo Ledo, SG, Albany City Rocks – His first half against the Playaz was one to forget, but the second frame Ledo started warming up and scored nine of 11 points during a stretch. He finished 7-for-17 from the field and scored 17 points. The 6-foot-6 wiry wing was able to get his shot when and where he wanted. He's an elite talent that can score in bunches.

Olivier Hanlon, PG/SG, Albany City Rocks – The more I watch Hanlon the more I like him. He was an efficient 5-for-7 from the field, scored 12 points and tossed out three assists. He's a solid ball handler that can play both guard spots and he's capable of pushing the break or creating for his teammates. He's a guy that a number of coaches were talking about on Wednesday.

Jarnell Stokes, PF, Memphis YOMCA – His morning game effort against the CP3 All-Stars was one of the better performances of the day. Stokes was active and aggressive in the paint and took every touch inside and turned it into something. Around the rim he maneuvers for good looks and he found his way to the free throw line a number of times. He also stepped out and hit an 18-foot jump shot.

Anthlon Bell, SG, Memphis YOMCA – Against the CP3 All-Stars and their loaded group of scorers, Bell managed to show off some scoring of his own. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound guard shot it well from three and worked in a mid-range pull-up from 15-feet. He's one for mid-majors to continue to track.

Mike Geselle, PG/SG, All Iowa Attack – You can't have a much more efficient game than what Geselle put together against the Mac Irvin Fire. He had a sequence where he scored 10 of 12 points in a three-minute time period, with majority of his points coming off mid-range pull-ups. He finished 6-for-7 from the field and 2-for-2 from three.

Marcus Paige, PG, All Iowa Attack – The nation's top lead guard had a strong outing against the Mac Irvin during the night session. During the first frame he was in set up mode and was looking to get his teammates shots. In the second half with them trailing a few points, Paige turned up his scoring act. He finished 8-for-17 from the field, scoring 19 points and tossing out seven assists to just one turnover.

Steve Taylor, PF, Mac Irvin Fire – A big part of the Fire's win over All Iowa Attack was this 6-foot-7 active and aggressive power forward. You can always count on him to hit the glass and he did so, grabbing eight rebounds. But his scoring is starting to come around and he's even starting to show back to the basket moves. He finished 7-for-12 from the field and scored 17 points.

Georges Niang, PF, BABC – During the first half, BABC struggled offensively so they turned to this 6-foot-7 undersized, but certainly effective Iowa State commit. Around the basket he scored using half hooks and maneuvered for finishes around the rim with either hand. He was 6-for-10 from the field and scored 12 points.

Sim Bhullar, C, CIA Bounce – During the match up with BABC, Bhullar appeared to be in better shape and was able to play longer stretches than he did at Huntington Prep last season. Although he recorded just two blocks, Bhullar was able to have an affect on the game because BABC struggled with his size around the basket. He finished with 12 points and eight boards.

Nerlens Noel, C, BABC – Triple-doubles at the high school level aren't an every day occurrence, but with Noel's size, length, timing and athleticism he's certainly a threat for one. Against CIA Bounce the near 7-footer swatted 12 shots (and affected many others), snagged 10 boards and scored 13 points. He causes serious issues for the opposition when they get into the paint and he's the most dominant defensive prospect since Greg Oden played high school ball.

Jabari Parker, SF, Mac Irvin Fire – It was clear Parker had a solid outing against the All Iowa Attack, but didn't realize he went for 25 points and 12 boards while taking in the game. Parker's offensive skill set is so advanced and he seems to be able to get any shot he wants at just about any time. He lived at the free throw line in this one, as he shot 10 freebees.

Billy Garrett, SG, Mac Irvin Fire -- Over the course of the summer, Garrett seems to be playing with more poise and confidence. Rarely rattled the 6-foot-4 guard is a sure handler that gets the ball to his teammates at the right time, but he's also an underrated scorer and shooter. He was 6-for-11 from the field, including 4-for-7 from three on his way to 19 points.

Kameron Williams, SG, Baltimore Elite – A scoring machine, Williams pumped in three after three against All-Ohio Red in a sweet 16 pool play game. The 6-foot-3 wiry guard out of Baltimore (Md.) Mt. St. Joseph is a talented overall scorer that did a good job of creating space and getting off his jump shot.

DeShawn Munson, SG, St. Louis Eagles – Up against the Mac Irvin Fire, Munson, a 6-foot-3 strongly built guard, was tough to keep out of the lane. A relentless and aggressive slasher, Munson is a terrific overall athlete that scored it very well around the basket.

*Down the road Austin Nichols, of the Memphis YOMCA, is going to be a name many talk about. The 6-foot-9 2013 prospect is a big kid with long arms and good touch around the basket.

*Travis Hammond can really shoot it from long range. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound wing prospect has range, a fairly quick release and the ability to go off one bounce and knock down shots.

*Mac Irvin Fire's loaded group of 16's included 2013 guard Kyle Davis. A 6-foot-1, 170-pounder, Davis is an impressive athlete that was at his best attacking the basket.

*Adam Woodbury was effective in the low post in the night session. He hit the glass to the tune of eight points and was efficient with his moves in the paint scoring 14 points on 5-for-8 from the field.

*Tyus Jones and Isaiah Zierdan had big outings for Howard Pulley in the night session. Jones went for 18 points, while Zierdan hit six three-pointers and scored a game high 19 points.
