Las Vegas, Nev. We continue our coverage of the Fullcourt Press Easter Classic with a look at some more of the top players in attendance. For readers looking for coverage of the Las Vegas Easter Classic, we apologize but we were unable to cover the tournament due to the fact that no rosters were provided for the event.

Brandon Tuggle, 6-5 SR SF Ontario (Calif.) High. Big-time prospect with length, athleticism and skills. He reportedly has no chance of qualifying academically out of high school, but look for him to be an impact player at the juco level.

Ben Vozzola, 6-5 JR SG Las Vegas (Nev.) Centennial. One of the pleasant surprises of the tournament. I liked him when we saw him briefly last summer, but I was still surprised at just how much he's improved. Great basketball frame, with length and athleticism. Excellent ball skills, vision and feel for the game. One of the elite two-guards in the west for 2010 and a definite high major prospect.

Zach Smith, 6-9 JR C San Diego (Calif.) High. Smith has lost weight in the last year, but he's still a big boy. Not a real offensive threat at this time, but I like his approach to the game. He's a physical banger who is willing to set hard picks, put a body on someone inside and do whatever it takes to help his team win.

Keala King, 6-4 JR SG Compton (Calif.) Dominguez. King is fairly good at a lot of things, but not really exceptional in any one area. He's got a nice frame and he's a pretty good athlete. Outside shot is decent, but he does find ways to score around the basket. His ball skills are good enough that you'd hope he might develop into a guy that could play some point guard.

Royce Woolridge, 6-1 JR SG Phoenix (Ariz.) Sunnyslope. Had a very good game shooting the ball on the second day, as he knocked down a bunch of threes. Not sure he has much upside, as he appears to be physically mature and he's a fairly good, not great, athlete.

Anthony Holiday, 6-2 SR SG Norwalk (Calif.) High. A streaky shooter, Holiday was mostly off the mark in the games we saw. But he's got some length, he's fairly explosive and we have seen him light it up in prior games. He hasn't played any AAU ball prior to this year and he may just be adjusting to the AAU style of play.

Cezar Guerrero, 5-11 SO SG City of Industry (Calif.) Workman. Guerrero has turned himself into a prolific scorer, but he'll need to improve the other parts of his game if he is to play at the next level. At his size, he really needs to play the one, but he shows no inclination to pass the ball or play the game as a point guard. There's no question he can shoot the ball, but he needs to learn to play within a team concept.
