Best Buy: Top Performers

The Best Buy Chicago Classic once again had a loaded field with some of the best players in the country. Kasey Hill was the clear star of the show, but LeRon Black and Robert Hubbs also showed very well for themselves.

Size: 6-0/160 |
Quick Take: Hill is just an absolute beast on the floor. His ball handling, athleticism, floor vision, speed, and ability to score are either at or near an elite level. He put his team on his back and carried them to a title with his play from the point guard position. Already Hill has put himself into the top five in the nation due to his strong play during the spring, and he is only helping his stock every single time he steps on the floor.

Quick Take: Hubbs was already considered a top 100 player off of limited viewings, but over the weekend in Chicago he proved he is better than that. He is a very good athlete, a great shot maker, and can create for himself off the dribble. Hubbs was the most consistent performer all weekend long, and was huge in helping his team go deep into the tournament. Look for Hubbs to make a major move in the rankings if he continues to play at this level.

Quick Take: Black is a near elite level athlete, and at his size can cause problems with his long arms and motor that never stops. At his best Black gets out and running in transition where he can handle the ball and also finishes well through traffic. Add in that he is a big time rebounder, and Black's play was at a high level from the opening tip all event long.

Quick Take: The future Hoosier was at a high level with his play all weekend long. Fischer looks bigger and stronger from the past, and he has translated that into becoming a better rebounder and also he is doing a better job of finishing in traffic. Beyond that Fischer has a good touch out to 18 feet and really runs the floor. He could stand to get stronger and be more of a factor on defense, but overall he looked great all tournament long.

Quick Take: Walton quite simply has ice water running through his veins. The moment is never too big for him, and he seems to thrive as the shots become more important. Walton once again hit a game winning shot, and beyond that was a great force in leading his team to a strong run through the tournament. He has good quickness, toughness for days, and a feel for how to score. This is the type of player who leads his teams to a lot of victories.

Quick Take:An elite athlete with a great combination of size and strength, Walker showed why he is one of the best players in the country. He was an absolute animal on the glass, and then finished down low with dunks at every opportunity he could. Also Walker mixed in a mid-range jumper or two, and showed the versatility that makes him such an impressive prospect going forward.

Quick Take: Austin was great in one of his first appearances with D-Rose. He showed an ability to get the ball up the floor in transition, and then also is a very good athlete. Austin can score well from the lead guard spot, but isn't a gunner by any stretch. His play was vital in D-Rose having their best showing of the spring.
