NBA Camp: Day 2 Evening Session

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- A pair of floor general's -- Brandon Knight and Joe Jackson -- had their way during the night session, as did Harrison Barnes and Perry Jones.

Harrison Barnes, SF – The nation's top ranked prospect in the class of 2010 has had the toughest slate of anyone at the camp. Every game out he's up against another highly touted wing. In the evening session he had Roscoe Smith trailing his every move. Although Smith certainly had his moments, Barnes got the last say, as he drove to the left side and hit a floater as time expired to give his camp team their second victory of camp. In the game he went for 16 points and is 6th overall in scoring for the camp.

Perry Jones, PF – In camp ball it's tough for big guys to get a ton of looks, but Jones has made the most of his at camp. The 6-foot-9 big man has run the floor looking to score, is getting better on the block and has been a problem for the opposition defensively. Over the course of the past year, Jones' game has developed at a high rate and he's a big time pick up for Scott Drew and Baylor.

Brandon Knight, PG – Clearly respected by his peers, Knight received more votes from his fellow campers to be in the all-star game than anyone. To go with that honor is second in points with just over 16 a game. His pace and ability to change speeds is a trait that not many in the country have. Knight has also turned himself into quite a scorer. His jump shot is consistent to 22-feet and he's middle game is very effective.

Joe Jackson, PG – Much like Knight, Jackson's speed is one of the many attributes that separates him from the other floor generals in the class. End to end there aren't many guys in the country that can compete with him. But to go with his speed, he's a high level athlete and has developed a mid-range game full of floaters and pull-up jumpers. Jackson is fearless as well and he showed that when he went to the rim in the half court set and threw down a nasty jam on Justin Coleman.

Roscoe Smith, SF – It was clear that he knew he was matching up with Barnes in the evening session. Offensively he attacked Barnes and did a good job of knocking down mid-range jumpers. On the opposite end he was active and showed a good amount of effort trying to slow the opposition down. Smith finished with nine points in the game.

Russell Byrd, SG – You'd be hard pressed to find a better shooter in the 2010 class than this 6-foot-6 long range bomber. In Byrd's evening round game he got hot and buried three mid-range jumpers and a three-pointer. His form and release are on point and over the course of his high school career he's developed an ability to put the ball on the deck for a dribble or two and pull-up for a mid-range jumper. He went for 11 points in the his last game on Friday.

Michael Cobbins said he has scholarship offers from Virginia, Indiana State, Indiana, Oklahoma State, Providence, Marquette and Georgia Tech. He also said Oklahoma and Texas are in the mix.

Cameron Clark mentioned Teas, Oklahoma, UCLA, Memphis, Kentucky, Arkansas, USC, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M as schools that are showing him attention.

James Johnson claims scholarship offers from Arizona, Virginia, Oklahoma, San Diego and San Diego State. Arizona State, Liberty, Oklahoma State, Texas, Alabama, Kansas, California and Marquette were also mentioned.

Carson Derosiers is an interesting prospect. He's a big kid at 6-foot-10, 215-pounds and he has wide shoulders that should be able to add weight. The big man is pretty good around the rim and dropped in a nice right handed jump hook in an evening game. Justin Coleman continues to impress on-lookers. The kid has some serious bounce and has a nice looking long-range jumper. Doron Lamb hasn't gotten a ton of attention this week, but he's worthy of some ink. His ball skills are impressive and he's got an impressive jumper from mid to long range. Okaro White had his moments on Friday. He still needs to add strength, but when he's active and aggressive he's pretty tough. Jordan McRae is instant offense. His long range jumper continues to get more consistent and he's a big time athlete that can finish well above the rim.
