AAU Rundown: Saturday Recap

Saturday was the second day of several events around the nation and Scout.com has staff on the scene in each location to get up to the minute updates and analysis. Here's how the various Duke prospects did on Saturday.

Note: Evan Daniels is in Dallas for the EYBL Dallas event. Brian Snow is in Lawrence, KS for the Jayhawk Invitational.

Tony Parker, C, Georgia Stars – Back with the Stars, after a week hiatus with the Atlanta Celtics, Parker was aggressively looking to score on the block. He received a number of touches and he took advantage of a good number of them. He scored through contact up against the New York Gauchos on his way to 20 plus points. -ED

Alex Poythress, SF, Georgia Stars – On more than once occasion we've discussed Poythress' rise over the course of the spring. But it's worth noting again. He seems much more athletic than this time last year and has molded himself into a full time wing prospect. A few weeks ago he impressed us with his jump shot, here he attacked the basket and scored it above the rim. The next step in his development is to add to his mid-range game. -ED

Rodney Purvis, SG, CP3 All-Stars – A nightmare to guard in transition, Purvis, a 6-foot-4 physical guard, pushed the tempo when he could and finished at and above the rim on a number of occasions. He worked in some mid-level shots and was especially creative when trying to finish in the paint. He has great touch and his floater game continues to improve. -ED

Jabari Parker, SF, Mac Irvin Fire – The talk of the spring has been Parker's new slim, trim frame. The 6-foot-7 wing said he's lost 10 pounds and it's definitely allowing him to get off the floor quicker and up higher. Parker was impressive as he used hesitation moves and quick dribbles to get to the basket. Once near the rim he finished at the rim and wasn't afraid to use his body to shield off defenders. -ED

Brannen Greene, SG, Southern Kings – One of the major 2013 standouts of the spring has been this 6-foot-5 wing prospect. Known for his ability to shoot the ball, Greene managed to knock in a handful of deep jumpers in a close loss to Baltimore Elite. But he's more than just a shooter, Greene is an impressive all around athlete that moves fluidly and has good speed when he's pushing the break.-BS

Rashad Muhammad, SG, Dream Vision – A long and angular guard, Muhammad is a good athlete who has the ability to get going scoring wise as well as distributing. He can make shots from deep, though not a great shooter, and also is solid going to the rim. Not one skill stands out with him, but the sum of the parts is pretty impressive. -BS

Theo Pinson, SG, CP3 All-Stars – Playing up in the 17's division, Pinson certainly doesn't look out of place. At 6-foot-4, he has good size, is an impressive leaper and is tough to handle in transition. It's obviously still early, but he's tracking as one of the best prospects we've come across in the 2014 recruiting class. -ED

Jabari Parker said Washington, Duke, Illinois, Michigan State and Kansas are his top five. He did indicate that he's still wide open and has no plans to rush through his recruitment. -ED
