Off The Dribble

Perrick Robinson, a junior from Chicago, is one of the faster point guards here. … Guard Rico Tucker is a helluva dunker for his size. He gets baseline to baseline in a hurry. … Forward Chris Berry has been sticking near the basket and getting double-digits every time out. …

Justin Cerasoli can flat out score the basketball. He'll do it off the bounce or from downtown. … Sophomore big man Brett Hoerner will block some shots but on offense he seems most comfortable facing the basket. …

Ty Morrison turned in one of the better plays of the day when he threw down a one-handed facial dunk off a slick feed from Dion Dowell. … Sophomore forward Jamal Boykin had 20 in a game this morning. He does his best work in the paint. … Gordon Watt should be applauded for his defensive effort and overall intensity. …

New Yorker Clifford Clinksdale has been the steadying force on his camp team. He's run the show, found teammates and had a very good weekend. … 2006 guard Nic Wise (committed to Arizona) struggled in his first game and then played very well in his final two games of the day. He's got a strong upper body and will find guys in the offense. …

Keena Payton is Gary Payton's brother, but they're different. While Gary excels at passing it, Keena likes to shoot it. … Milwaukee swingman Draelon Burns has been good the entire weekend. He's athletic and chips in on the glass. … Canadian big man Theo Davis keeps it simple: he's got a nice offensive game in the paint. … Kyle Lowry and Jason Horton matched up head to head in the evening session. Lowry had the good first half and then traded places with Horton in the second as the guard from Texas played well.
