Prep Showcase: Day One

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Terry Rozier and Goodluck Okonoboh were the top two performers of the day at the National Prep Showcase held on Albertus Magnus' campus.

Terry Rozier, PG/SG, Hargrave – The buzz around Rozier has been building. Up against Notre Dame Prep on Friday, Rozier proved worthy of the recent hype. He's clearly spent time in the weight room, made good decisions with the ball and scored at will in transition. He's a very good athlete, has impressive body control and is a shot maker out to 21-feet. Defensively, he's impressive and should excel at the top of Louisville's press for years go come.

Anton Gill, SG, Hargrave – It took Gill some time to get things going, but he went on a run at the start of the second half that consisted of a couple of three-pointers. At 6-foot-4 he's an accomplished scorer that is capable of hittings shots from three, mid-range and a scoring at the rim. He finished 7-for-17 from the field and scored 18 points.

Greg McClinton, SF, Hargrave – The Wake Forest signee was quite efficient against Notre Dame Prep Friday evening. McClinton was 10-for-15 from the field on his way to 24 points and 11 rebounds. McClinton hit a pair of catch and shoot jump shots from 15-feet and mixed in a three-pointer, but where he excelled was around the basket. He was active on the glass and had a handful of put backs off of misses.

Roger Moute a Bidias, PF, Notre Dame Prep – A tremendous run and jump athlete, Moute a Bidias was active on the offensive glass throughout Notre Dame's contest with Hargrave Military Academy. At 6-foot-7, he doesn't have great size, but his energy and athleticism make up for what he lacks in height. He missed the only three he took, but did show a nice left hook late in the game. He finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

Jaylen Brantley, SG/PG, Notre Dame Prep – Known for his ability to rip the nets from behind the arc, Brantley, a 5-foot-10 guard, got loose for 26 points, including six three-pointers against Hargrave. Brantley has good speed and a nice range on his shot. Although he has point guard size, Brantley's mentality is to put up points and that he can definitely do. He finished 9-for-16 from the field.

Dayshon Smith, SG, Putnam Science – Known for his ability to score, Smith, or Scoochie as he's known to most, didn't disappoint in the second half against Wilbraham & Monson. He only mustered a pair in the first half, but his 14 in the second nearly had Putnam Science a big victory. In the end, they lost at the buzzer, but Scoochie did all he could, scoring from mid-range and in. He finished 7-for-11 from the field and scored 16 points.

Frank Mason, PG, Massanutten Military – The Kansas signee put up 21 points on 6-for-8 shooting in a eight-point win over South Kent Friday night. Mason showed off an improved jump shot, as he connected on all three of his three-point attempts. Mason looked to push the tempo when he had the opportunity, as he plays well in transition and made a few plays for Massanutten when he had the opportunity.

Goodluck Okonoboh, C, Wilbraham & Monson – This was easily the best effort I've seen from Okonoboh. The 6-foot-9 big man was active, aggressive and attempted to block everything. By half time Okonoboh had accumulated double-digit blocks and he kept it up in the second frame. Offensively he still has some fine-tuning to do, but he's learned how to use his athleticism and mobility to make a major impact on the game. He finished with 11 points and eight rebounds to go with his 15 plus blocks.

Luis Montero, SF, Wilbraham & Monson – There's a lot to like about this 6-foot-7 versatile wing. A native of the Dominican Republic, Montero came to the United States over the summer. For his size, Montero plays well with the ball in his hands, has an impressive skill set and sees the floor well. Montero also managed to connect on a pair of three-pointers. He finished with 11 points in the win over Putnam Science.

*Matt Atewe is a 6-foot-9 big man to keep an eye on. A standout at Fitchburg (Mass.) Notre Dame Prep, Atewe has a big, strong body, can run the floor and will contest shots in the paint.

*Duane Notice, a strongly built guard out of Canada, put up 24 points on 8-for-15 shooting in Chancellor's 71-56 win over Fork Union.

*Memphis signee Kuran Iverson scored 19 points in La Jolla Prep's win over a depleted Northfield Mount Hermon bunch. Iverson was 7-for-19 from the field for 19 points and five rebounds.

*Wilbraham & Monson freshman Mustapha Heron was impressive Friday night. He finished with 10 points on 4-for-7 shooting. The 6-foot-4 wing is a powerfully build youngster that knocked down a handful of mid-range shots.

*Jamel Mosley broke out for a big game against Wilbraham & Monson. He pumped in 23 points on 7-for-11 shooting, including 3-for-5 from behind the three-point stripe.

*Dwayne Foreman had a solid game for Massanutten. The 6-foot-7 forward had 15 points on 5-for-6 shooting. He showed good awareness and soft touch in the paint.
