After seeing himself drop in the rankings, McRoberts quickly rebounded with a display of crisp passes that seemed out of place coming from someone who's grown from a 6-foot-10 200 pounder to a 245 pound frame. However it was his offense that seemed to have taken a big step forward from last summer according to TheInsiders.com's National recruiting director Dave Telep.
"All weekend long he was aggressive on offense, displayed a variety of ways to score and in our mind reclaimed his spot in the Top 20," said Telep. "Props to the young man for improving his game. Plus, he needed stiches around his elbow after the semifinal game but waited until after the championship."
When not dominating on the court, McRoberts had a chance to visit with some future Blue Devil teammates including Sean Dockery, Shelden Williams, and JJ Redick who could be seen courtside watching Spiece's games with close scrutiny.
Aside from the future Blue Devil, the Heat showcased the latest prep to the pros candidate in Greg Oden, who simply dominated any and every opponent to finish with Tournament MVP honors.
With the inside duo of Oden and McRoberts hold down top senior candidate Tasmin Mitchell, the Jazz somehow managed to stay within striking distance before an Augustine three pointer rimmed out in the closing moments to secure a Spiece victory.
