Boo Williams: Day One Checklist

<b>HAMPTON, Va. –</b> Jon Brockman (23 points, 15 boards) had the best statistical day in our viewing of the Boo Williams Invitational. Here's a rundown of some of the best efforts in our gym.

Day One, Boo Williams Invitational

2005 Checklist

Jon Brockman, PF, FOH: The only other thing that didn't go right for Brockman was that his team fell to Team Florida. Other than that, there's not much to argue with a 23-point, 15 rebound outing. Brockman is a max effort guy who you'd better box out. His offense is right around the goal and even at 6-7 he puts in work.

Micah Downs, SF/SG, FOH: It probably wasn't his best outing offensively, but he locked up Team Florida's best player. This guy is a big time high-major player because he's multipositional, is skilled and at 6-7 has a stroke. Think Mike Dunleavy.

Keith Brumbaugh, SF, Team Florida: Wasn't his day on Friday and his team survived a subpar game from him and still won. Downs did a nice job denying him good shots and his jumper wasn't falling early. He'll have better days.

Walter Hodge, PG, Team Florida: Think ETSU's Timmy Smith. He's a terror getting to the basket and his drives basically won it for his team, not to mention a 9-for-9 effort at the line down the stretch. Still a streaky shooter but a guy who can get to the rack.

Julian Wright, SF, Illinois Warriors: He's a really good, kind of herky-jerky athlete. He had 15 points, showed he can handle the ball and make plays. Has yet to become a reliable shooter but a guy who stuffs the stat sheet, plays hard and uses his athleticism wisely. Most of his points came around the cup. Top 25 prospect for sure.

Josh Tabb, SG/PG, Illinois Warriors: This guy is fast with or without the ball. He's also not afraid to play at both ends and played catch-up on a big time breakaway dunk attempt and block. Lefty has some combo to his game as well.

Terrell Harris, SG, Team Texas: You have to really like long, athletic guards and that's what Harris is. He had 12 points and did some things going to the paint and from the perimeter. He's got Big 12 tattooed to his forehead and he could play for just about anyone in the league. Harris is an explosive guard.

Calvin Miles, SF, Team Texas: He and Harris seemed to flip-flop halves as he was outstanding late and Harris was good early. He went to the post and made some nice face-up plays. Smooth athlete in transition and he's got some bounce.

Kevin Rogers, PF, Team Texas: The lefty has game. He wants to face up his defender and can pop the mid-range jumper. He's athletic inside and finishes plays against the S.C. Ravens. High-major for sure and had 19 points.

Devan Downey, PG, S.C. Ravens: Very fast and likes to the get to the rim. He'll find the gaps and is comfortable trying to get all the way to the cup or will pull up as well. Size could determine just how high he is able to go.

2006 Checklist

Bryan Davis, PF, Team Texas: His 22 points were key as he proved his high-major value. Outstanding on the glass, has a nice, live body and will go to work inside. Already had a short face up and is very comfortable inside.

Solomon Tat, SF/SG, Team Georgia Elite: He's a very physical, athletic and powerful wing player. Loves to get in the paint and get to the rack. However, he made some perimeter shots today and looked good doing it. Well proportioned athlete.

2007 Checklist

Kevin Love, PF, Oregon Select: He's every bit as good as advertised. Talk about a top quality freshman inside? This guy has moves, skill and most especially power. He powered right through kids two years his senior. Highest level college prospect and he's already 6-8 and 235 pounds.
