NBPA Camp: Day Three

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The NBPA Top 100 Camp came to a close on Saturday. Future Harvard star Zena Edosomwan came to play as did point guard Stevie Clark.

John Egbunu, C – South Florida has themselves a heck of a player in Egbunu. The 6-foot-9 center runs the floor very well, can block shots, and then also is a capable player with his back to the basket. Add in that he has good hands and is a well above average athlete, and Egbunu was very impressive in a morning game capping off what was an excellent camp for him.

Stevie Clark, PG – This kid can just flat out put points on the board, and when he gets into a rhythm it can be fun to watch. In a semi-final win Clark was torching the nets to the tune of six three pointers, and then in the championship game he played a solid facilitator role to go along with his scoring. Overall it was an excellent day for Clark.

Jermaine Lawrence, PF – He missed nearly the entire camp, but fought through injury on the final day and showed why he is a five-star prospect. Lawrence rebounds well, especially on the offensive end, and then is athletic and very mobile. Add in that he is a good three point shooter, and Lawrence put all the flashes on display during a two game stretch and proved he belongs.

Zena Edosomwan, PF – The future Harvard forward had an excellent camp and finished it off in style. He was communicating well on defense, scoring on offense, and playing with a great motor. Edosomwan isn't the biggest or most athletic, but he is very effective and has a good idea of how to play. He was flat out one of the most productive players all camp long.

Roddy Peters, PG/SG – Peters completed a breakout weekend by leading his team to the championship game, and once in the title game he made a ton of plays. At his best going to the rim, Peters gets into the lane and can either score or find teammates open. He hit a few jumpers throughout the day, and gave solid effort on the defensive end.

Malcolm Hill, SG/SF – Hill was quiet earlier in the camp, but on the final day he came to play. The Illinois commitment made shots, finished above the rim, and just began to look far more comfortable in the camp atmosphere. He really picked up his game helping his team make the title game.

Kuran Iverson, SF – At times during the day Iverson got sucked into playing camp ball where he got into one-on-one battles, but when he let the game come to him he was excellent. Iverson showed more passion and intensity than at any time in the last year, and it showed with him being one of the top players at the camp. While Iverson did have a bit of an up and down day, it was a good end to an excellent week for him.

Tyler Roberson, PF – While Roberson does nothing flashy, he does so many things well. The slightly undersized power forward just knows where to be on the court at all times and does all the little things to help his team win. Time after time on Saturday it seemed like Roberson was tipping rebounds to keep possessions alive, setting screens, and scoring down low and in the mid-range.

Kendal Harris, PG – This Texan just knows how to get to the rim, and when he does he has the strength and athleticism to finish through contact or simply get creative and make a nice acrobatic layup. Now he could stand to be a little better at getting others involved, but Harris had a nice day and showed well for himself all camp long.

Jaylon Tate, PG – During a morning game Tate was at his best. Always an excellent passer who knows how to run a team, Tate was aggressive getting into the lane and even hit a few jump shots. Also on defense Tate fought through ball screens and made things tough on his opposition. He didn't have the biggest numbers, but it was a very solid showing.

Kevon Looney, SF/PF – It seems redundant, but Looney was a beast. Quite simply there isn't a player who rebounded the ball better and more consistently than Looney. He did it all again during the morning game in which he got on the glass and was very active. Add in a blocked shot and the versatility to defend numerous positions, and Looney's contributions weren't just measured in raw numbers.

Chris McCullough, PF – When it came down to the end, McCullough made plays. He showed big time athleticism and a great ability to run the floor. Also McCullough mixed in a few mid-range jumpers to show off the entire skill set. He could have rebounded a little bit better, but still it was an excellent showing for him and one in which he proved to be elite in his class.
