Chance McSpadden, SG, Nike Team Florida – In a close win over Team CP3, McSpadden made 5-for-11 shots, including a trio of three-points. The 6-foot-3 lefty can heat up from deep in a hurry. He has good range, a quick release and impressive shot preparation. McSpadden finished with 14 points in the wing over Team CP3.
Ronshad Shabazz, SG, Team CP3 – Shabazz had a strong showing during the first session of EYBL Sacramento. A 6-foot-4, solidly built wing, Shabazz is a consistent and confident shooter to 22-feet. But he's also able to work off the dribble for scoring opportunities. He's a solid athlete with potential to be a good defender as well.
Terrence Phillips, PG, Team CP3 – It's clear that Phillips, a 5-foot-11 lead guard, has improved. He plays much more under control than last year and is developing into a true floor general. He made good decisions with the ball, set up teammates and made shots when he needed to. He's a good shooter to the stripe, but also comfortable shooting off the bounce. He had 14 points and six assists against Nike Team Florida.
Deyonta Davis, PF, Spiece Indy Heat – Michigan State locked up a good one early in Davis. The 6-foot-8 lengthy forward runs the floor with ease, uses his athleticism around the rim and is a versatile player on the offensive end of the floor. He stepped away from the rim and hit both of his three-point attempts, plus showed he could make mid-range shots with ease. He has a good set of hands, nice touch around the rim and will contest shots on the defensive end.
Juwan Morgan, PF, MOKAN Elite – Morgan, a 6-foot-8, 205-pound forward, was one of the most talked about players in the gym. Coaches are always looking for new big men prospects and Morgan is certainly intriguing. He runs the floor well, plays with energy on both ends of the floor and is a pretty good athlete. On top of that, he has very good grades as well. Morgan went for nine points, five boards, three assists and two blocks against Team Penny.
Shake Milton, SG, MOKAN Elite – Much like Morgan, Milton is intriguing. He's 6-foot-4 with long arms and good athleticism. In the second half against Team Penny, Milton aggressively looked to score. He hit one three, another deep jumper and four other baskets attacking the rim. He has good speed and seems to be a smart basketball player. He's starting to garner more interest and I expect more to come his way quickly.
Austin Grandstaff, SG, Team Texas Elite – Grandstaff is one of the top shooters and scorers in the 2014 class. He has good form on his jump shot and he's confident shooting it well past the three-point line. More importantly, it goes in with consistency. But Grandstaff is more than just a shooter, he's skilled, can create his own shot opportunities and can make mid-range pull-ups. He went 20 points in a win over Team Scan.
Matt McQuaid, SG, Team Texas Elite – Much like Grandstaff, McQuaid is a high-level shooter. He pumped in four three-pointers against Team Scan. He has good form on his shot and nice range as well. McQuiad isn't just a standstill shooter though; he scored two baskets off strong drives to his off hand, plus mixed it up for an offensive put back. He scored 18 points in the win.
Cheick Diallo, PF, Team Scan – After watching Team Scan's loss to Team Texas Elite, I didn't think it was Diallo's best game. Then I looked at the stat sheet and saw his productive line of 22 points and 11 rebounds. Even when Diallo misses close range shots and struggles to finish, he finds ways to impact the game and get things going. He's active, energetic and defends.
Udoka Azuibuke, C, Nike Team Florida – Azuibuike is a powerfully built 6-foot-10, 255-pound big man with lengthy arms. He anchors the low post and rebounds his area. If he gets the ball with good position, he's going to try and put the defender in the rim. He's strong, aggressive and will contest shots on the defensive end. He finished with nine points and ten rebounds in a win over Team CP3.
Caleb Swanigan, C, Spiece Indy Heat – All the tools are there for Swanigan to be an elite level center. At 6-foot-9, 260-pounds, Swanigan is a big, strong post player with quite a bit of skill and mobility for his size. He maneuvers well on the block and score in a variety of ways. He has a terrific set of hands, nice touch inside and is also a talented passer, which was evident on Sunday when he tossed out six assists in a game.
