Nike Global: Myles Powell

CHICAGO - Shooting guard Myles Powell had it working at the Nike Global Challenge.

There is no substitute for being able to shoot the basketball, and one of the best shooters in the country is Myles Powell. The New Jersey native had it working again on Saturday and went for 30 points.

The numbers certainly spoke for themselves. Powell had 30 points on 11-18 shooting overall and 6-9 from three. Not only did Powell take and make open shots, but he was able to make contested shots as well.

Though Powell is undersized, he is effective. He is extremely crafty at being able to get his shot off, and is excellent at using his dribble to create space. He did that all week long, and punctuated it on Saturday.

Powell had coaches from Cincinnati, VCU, and Seton Hall watching all week, and those schools are continuing to make him a total priority.
