EYBL Dallas: Day Three, Part A

FRISCO, Tex. -- Khadeen Carrington, Luis Montero and Cheick Diallo were among the final days biggest standouts at Nike EYBL Dallas.

Khadeen Carrington, SG, NY Lightning – In 27 minutes of action, Carrington managed 24 points on 7-for-10 shooting. He hit a pair of three-pointers off the catch, scored a couple of mid-range pull-ups and scored it well at the rim. Carrington looked to drive the ball and was aggressive when he saw a lane to the rim. A known scorer, Carrington only increased that reputation in a win over the Georgia Stars on Sunday.

Angel Delgado, PF, NY Lightning – College coaches are always looking for active and aggressive low post prospects and Delgado, a 6-foot-8 big man, fits that billing. He's a pretty good athlete that runs the floor well and plays with energy. Delgado can score some on the block and is confident in a jump hook over his left shoulder. In all, Delgado finished 7-for-7 from the field and scored 15 points. He also added eight boards for NY Lightning against the Georgia Stars.

Tadric Jackson, SG, Georgia Stars – Jackson put together one of the better games I've seen him play on Sunday. The 6-foot-3, strongly built guard made three three-pointers and scored three other baskets in the paint. Jackson also looked to get his teammates involved. He was able to slice into the lane and kicked out passes to open teammates. In all, he scored 15 points on 6-for-14 shooting and tossed out eight assists.

Lourawls Nairn, PG, MoKan Elite – The fast and electric guard can change a game with his speed. His end-to-end speed is elite. With Team Scan sitting back in the zone, Nairns picked his spots and attacked the gaps. When he able to get into the lane, Nairn either kicked it out for open looks or looked to shoot floaters. Although not known for shooting, Nairn did hit a three and a pull-up from 18-feet in situations where the shot clock was expiring. He finished with 13 points, five rebounds and three assists in the wing over Team Scan.

Luis Montero, SF, NY Lightning – Montero is one of the more intriguing prospects of the weekend. At 6-foot-7, Montero has great size for a prospect with perimeter skills. He handles the ball well, sees the floor and can score in a variety of ways. Although he turned it over a few too many times on Sunday, he impacted the game by scoring in transition, rebounding the finding open teammates. He scored 14 points, grabbed 10 boards and tossed out five assists.

Noah Dickerson, C, Georgia Stars – There's been a lot of talk among evaluators about prospects that play hard and with a motor. Well, Dickerson, a 6-foot-8, 260-pound big man, certainly played with the kind of effort you'd want in a post player. He's aggressive in the paint, goes after rebounds aggressively and scores well through contact. Dickerson scored two buckets off put backs. He also demanded touches on the block and showed great touch inside. Dickerson scored 15 points and grabbed eight boards against the NY Lightning.

Cheick Diallo, C, Team Scan – I've watched Diallo play three times this spring and all three times he's been the hardest playing prospect on the floor. Against MoKan Elite, Diallo tried to get his team going by hitting the glass and being aggressive. Although it wasn't enough for Team Scan to get the win, Diallo managed 16 points on 7-for-9 shooting and 11 rebounds. He's an active, live body that likes to play physical.

*Georgia Stars wing Eric Lockett scored 11 points on 4-for-9 shooting on Sunday. A long, lean wing prospect, Lockett is active, aggressive and athletic. He hunted mid-range jumpers on Sunday.

*Guard Justin Coleman may be small, but he's quick and elusive. He has a strong handle, very good court vision and can get his shot going in a hurry. He scored 11 points and tossed out six assists in the loss to the NY Lightning.

*NY Lightning guard Mike Williams didn't heat up from three like he has in past EYBL games, but he certainly showed his talent. He's quick, athletic and tough. He scored eight points in the Lightning's win.

*2014 Expressions Elite guard Jared Terrell listed Kansas, Florida, Marquette, Creighton, Kansas State, St. John's, Connecticut, Cincinnati and Boston College. He said he wants to take visits after AAU season.

*According to NY Lightning coach Dana Dingle, Angel Delgado has offers from Virginia, Miami, Dayton, Fordham and Seton Hall. Kentucky has also shown some interest.

*Mike Williams claims scholarship offers from Creighton, Rutgers, Temple, Fordham and Rhode Island.
