Darryl Bryant, SG, St. Ray's – When teammates couldn't buy a hoop, "Truck" found a way. Without his first and second half contributions the Ravens would have gotten run out of the gym.
Jordan Theodore, PG, Paterson Cath. – It was a good day to be a former Gauchos guard. Theodore was the pace-setter in his team's waxing of Montrose. Off the bounce and with speed, he slipped in the paint for 24 points.
Ryan Pearson, PF, Christ The King – This kid never gives up on boards and if you don't match his intensity forget about it. George Mason has a serious player on its hands. Pearson will play to mid-range and slinks his ways around the hoop for crafty finishes. Scored 23 for the winners.
David Bruce, C, Linden – If you're going to have your biggest game of the year do it on a big stage. Bruce scored 34 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in a win over St. Ray's. On the mid-level radar, the 6-foot-9 center made 7-for-8 from the line and should be a kid who works his way into the higher-level stratosphere.
Omari Lawrence, SF, St. Ray's – A cold shooting night plagued him but true to his building reputation he rallied. Late in the game Lawrence exploded off the bounce and made a series of plays for himself and teammates. A high-major riser, he'll dust the OT loss off and be back at it the next time around. He finished 7-for-14 with 6 rebounds.
Doron Lamb, SG, Bishop Loughlin – Those who sung his praises weren't lying. As he approaches 6-foot-4, Lamb's filling out and in turn has the makings of one of the best at his position. A natural scorer, Lamb is comfortable driving and shooting. There's a smooth way about him. The sophomore pumped in 28 points.
