Reebok Breakout: Day One

PHILADELPHIA -- Aaron Harrison owned the first day of the Reebok Breakout Challenge, but his brother Andrew Harrison, Jermaine Lawrence and underclassman Dwayne Bacon also impressed at the camp.

Aaron Harrison, SG – It didn't take Harrison long to get the live period going. The 6-foot-5 scoring guard got loose in the first half of his first game, pumping in six three-pointers on seven attempts. In all, Harrison finished with 28 points, but he could have scored more. He's as good as it gets from the two guard spot. He can get shots when he wants and has the ability get buckets at the rim, from mid-range or from behind the arc. He's an elite two guard in the 2013 class.

Andrew Harrison, PG – While his brother was pumping in points, Harrison was attacking the basket looking to find teammates. His vision and passing ability is top notch, but he can also score when asked too. He only took six shots in their opening round win, but he hit four of them and scored 11 points for the game. Harrison also tossed out five assists.

Rashawn Powell, PG/SG – A combination guard out of Florida, Powell went into attack mode as soon as he stepped foot on the floor. Powell, who has a scorer's mentality, found his way into the lane and made plays at the rim. Powell also hit a pair of three pointers, one off the catch and one off the dribble. Although Powell can get a little wild with the ball, he's talented, has good speed and can score. He finished 6-for-7 from the field and scored 17 points.

Tony Trocha, PF/C – The buzz around Trocha, a 6-foot-11, 200-pound post prospect, has been big. So when he stepped on the floor on Wednesday a lot was expected. Trocha certainly passed the look test, as he's long, athletic and can move up and down the floor. However, in Trocha's opening game he wasn't real aggressive. He did score a nice finish with his right hand and had a handful of put backs, but he shied away from contact in the paint. Trocha finished 5-for-6 from the field and scored 10 points and grabbed four rebounds.

Kamall Richards, SF – In front of a crowd of coaches, Richards, a 6-foot-5 guard, put up 19 points on 8-for-11 shooting. The lefty shot the ball well off the catch, but also mixed in pull-ups from mid-range, floaters and finishes at the rim. Richards is a strong wing that got hot in a hurry on day one in Philadelphia.

Jermaine Lawrence, PF/SF – It didn't take Lawrence, a 6-foot-9 versatile forward, long to get into scoring mode. While a little banged up from an injured ankle, Lawrence still managed to pump in jump shots from both mid-range out to the three-point line. Lawrence is a confident scorer that moves fluidly and is a very good athlete. His mid-range pull-ups were crisp and he even worked in a step-back jump from 18-feet.

Rysheed Jordan, PG/SG – During Jordan's first game of Reebok Breakout camp, he was in attack mode the entire contest. At 6-foot-4, Jordan is a long, physical talent at the guard spot. He can get where he wants on the court and is a tremendous finisher at the basket. To go with his finishes at the rim, Jordan also buried a pull-up from 18-feet.

Devin Robinson, SF – One of the surprises of the day was this 6-foot-6 wing prospect. He's a pretty good athlete that moves fluidly. He hunted jump shots early and his form looks good. Despite his lack of strength, he mixed it up for boards and was aggressive with his effort on the offensive end of the floor. He's one we'll pay close attention to during the second day of camp.

Dwayne Bacon, SF – In my first glance of Bacon, a 6-foot-6 wing out of Florida, he certainly impressed. For a sophomore-to-be he's physically developed and a very good overall athlete. In his first game of camp, Bacon hit a catch and shoot jumper from three, had a strong finish at the rim and showed he could handle the ball some in transition. Bacon has the look of a possible future five-star in the 2015 class..

Malik Newman, SG – He played on the ball for his camp team, but Newman is one of the best scorers in the 2015 class. He creates shots with ease and can shoot it equally well from mid-range out to the three-point stripe. He's an effortless scorer that can put up points in a hurry.

*2013 Allerik Freeman's mentality is to put up points. He hit on four of his six three-point attempts scoring 13 points in his first game of Reebok Breakout camp.

*Austin Rettig is a tremendous shooter off the catch. He got four looks from behind the arc and managed to knock down three of them. He scored 11 in his first game of the weekend.

*Detrick Mostella, a standout at Decatur (Ala.) High, is a tremendous all around athlete. The 6-foot-2 guard knocked down a three off the catch, hit a pull-up from 15-foot and had a handful finishes at the rim.

* 2013 forward Wesley Iwundu was all over the place during his opening round game. He finished 6-for-13 from the field and scored 13 points. Iwundu had four steals and was active in his camp teams press.

*Picking up where he left off at LeBron James Skills Academy, Austin Nichols showed off his skill and offensively ability. Although he didn't shoot a great percentage from the field (3-for-10), Nichols impressed with the way he got his shot opportunities. He finished with six points and five rebounds.

Among the head coaches spotted at Reebok Breakout camp were Travis Ford, Larry Brown, Jim Larranga, Scott Drew, Steve Masiello, Kevin Stallings, Tony Barbee, John Groce, Brad Stevens, Cuonzo Martin, Frank Haith, Mark Fox, Sean Miller, Josh Pastner, Roy Williams, Pat Skerry, Tom Herrion, Dave Rice, Jeff Bzdelik, Tommy Amaker, Jay Wright, Tony Bennett, Mike Rice, Tony Shaver, Tim Miles, Jerod Haase, Mark Schmidt, Mick Cronin and James Dickey.
