Las Vegas, West Coast: Final Two Days

Anthony Marshall and Tony Wroten are two of the standouts in the last couple days of the Las Vegas tournaments...

Las Vegas, Nev. We take a look at Anthony Marshall, Michael Snaer and Tony Wroten, among others, in our final look at the Las Vegas tournaments…

Anthony Marshall, 6-1 SG/PG Las Vegas (Nev.) Mojave. A terrific competitor, Marshall did it all for his Las Vegas Prospects team. He plays much bigger than 6-1, with long arms and very good leaping ability. A two guard with the ability to play some point, Marshall is a very good defender. Shoots it better off the bounce than catch, but makes enough to keep defenses honest. The only reason to recruit him is if you want to win.

Michael Snaer, 6-4 SG Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde. Snaer had a terrific all-around game in a win on Friday. The crowd went nuts on a big dunk, but his best play of the day was a charge he took. He has all the tools to be a big-time shooting guard at the next level.

Joe Burton, 6-7 C Hemet (Calif.) West Valley. Burton came up big on the final day of the Super 64, as he was a presence inside and scored with a series of moves around the baseline. Body is a concern at the next level – carries too much weight – but he does possess a high skill level.

Demetric Williams, 6-0 SG/PG Las Vegas (Nev.) Cheyenne. A quick guard with a nice shot to the arc, Williams has a chance if he can play the point. Decision-making can be erratic, but he has some tools. Frame is a bit slight and somewhat of a concern, but quickness and skills make him a prospect at some level.

Gary Franklin, 6-0 SG Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei. Franklin knocked down multiple three-pointers Saturday morning. Ultimate level is questionable, as he's not a point guard and struggles with decision-making, but Franklin can shoot the ball.

Tony Wroten, 6-4 SG Seattle (Wash.) Garfield. Wroten put on a show Friday night, as he drained deep jumpers and made plays all over the court. There is no question that Wroten has a ton of talent. The issue to date has been his approach to the game. But Friday night the talented sophomore generally made good decisions and played within a team concept. An excellent passer when he chooses to do so, Wroten has all the tools to be an elite prospect. His issues in the coming years will have nothing to do with talent and everything to do with decision-making, shot selection and playing to win (as opposed to showcasing his considerable talent). Friday night he gave us a glimpse at just how good a player he might become.

Josh Smith had coaches from USC, UCLA, Washington, Uconn and Kansas at his game on Friday.

Michael Snaer was being tracked by Cal, Missouri, Florida State and UNLV Friday afternoon.
