Monday Hoops Recap

The final day of a three day Memorial Day weekend wrapped up on Monday afternoon with several Duke prospects showing out well.

Evan Daniels is in Chicago at the Best Buy Tournament. Brian Snow and Josh Gershon represent the Scout.com team at the EYBL Session 3 in Los Angeles. Additionally, TDD has new contributors Brian Lhee & Kyle Nagata in Los Angeles and Scott Phillips in Chicago.

?Tony Parker, PF, Georgia Stars: The big guy didn't get a ton of touches and wasn't really converting when he was given the chance. However, he played tough defense and was strong on the boards, which you can always expect for the hard working and physical post. It's no easy task to drive to the hoop when he's around and Monday was no different. ?

?Alex Poythress, SF, Georgia Stars: After a somewhat quiet evening on Sunday night, Poythress came alive on Monday. The wing was hitting from midrange and in, while also playing tough defense in the post and rebounding. With the jumper going along with being a threat to drive to the hoop, Poythress looked every bit the part of a five-star wing. ?

??Kyle Anderson, PF/SG, Playaz Basketball Club: Have fun figuring out a projected position for this kid. Against CIA Bounce, he was absolutely determined to shoot over 7-foot-4

Julius Randle, PF, Texas Titans – At times during the weekend Randle struggled, but on Monday morning that was most definitely not the case. Randle used his combination of strength and athleticism to get the BABC interior players in foul trouble, and just was a dominant force. Add in that Randle led the break at times and knocked in threes as well. Overall it was a completely dominant performance from Randle.

Nerlens Noel, PF/C, BABC – It wasn't a typical game for Noel as he found himself in foul trouble for much of it. He struggled with the strength of Randle, and that led to him picking up fouls, but still Noel was strong blocking several shots, especially from the weakside. On offense he didn't get a ton done, but Noel does run the floor great and is a threat to dunk anything that he gets his hands on.
