Best of Summer: Day Four

The July evaluation period is winding down and the kids are tired. However, a few guys still have something in the tank and there were some impressive performances on Thursday....

Los Angeles, Calif. The Best of Summer winds down with a double overtime game and Anthony Marshall, Tyler Lamb and Anthony Brown each have impressive showings…

Anthony Marshall, 6-1 SG/PF Las Vegas (Nev.) Cheyenne. Marshall had a great battle with elite junior guard Tyler Lamb in the best game of the day between the Las Vegas Prospect and Pump N Run Elite. Marshall's team prevailed in double overtime and Marshall was the difference. He makes enough outside shots to keep you honest and he's a great competitor.

Brandon Davies, 6-8 PF/C Provo (Utah) High. As one scout said, "if Davies was playing at Westchester in Los Angeles, he'd be ranked as one of the top players in the country." Very good body, good hands and feet, high skill level and a good athlete.

Vander Joaquim, 6-9 PF El Cajon (Calif.) Christian. Joaquim has all the tools to be an impact player at the next level. He's still got a lot to learn about the game, but his length, athleticism and skill level get your attention.

Austin Morgan, 5-11 PG/SG Reno (Calif.) High. Morgan isn't super quick, and he's not real long, but he's a gamer. Very nice stroke, good feel and an excellent competitor. Low to mid majors are taking a look.

Tyler Lamb, 6-4 SG Ontario (Calif.) Colony. Lamb has stepped up his play this week, joining Tyler Honeycutt as the go-to guy for Pump N Run Elite. His defense on Anthony Marshall was impressive, as was the rest of his game. Look for him to be one of the elite two-guards in the country for 2010.

Anthony Brown, 6-5 SG/PG Huntington Beach (Calif.) Ocean View. Silky smooth guard with a feathery touch. Brown still looks like he's 12 years-old and he could still be changing physically. Very high skill level and another elite 2010 guard prospect.

Stephen Holt, 6-1 PG Portland (Ore.) Jesuit. We hadn't seen Holt much prior to this tournament and he's definitely made an impression. Pretty good quickness, nice feel for the game and a good passer. He's got a chance to be one of the top point guards in the west for 2010.

Tyler Honeycutt said he's been hearing from USC, UCLA, Arizona State, Texas and Memphis. "My coach said Memphis has started to show some interest," said Honeycutt.

Anthony Brown had coaches from Arizona State and UCLA watching his game Thursday afternoon.
