Spiece Run N' Slam: Day 2 Top Performers

Impressive scoring performances, high-flying dunks, defensive stoppers, and more highlight the top performances from Day 2 at Spiece Run N' Slam in Fort Wayne, IN.

A.J. Turner - 2015 SF - The Family

Against the Mac Irvin Fire, Turner was the one on fire. Netting a total of 30 points in the win, Turner was on another level, specifically in the second half. He scored using an assortment of outside shots, takes to the hoop, and free throws. The Fire were frustrated and had no answer for him, and he recognized that and took advantage of it.

Davon Dillard - 2015 SF - Mac Irvin Fire

The super-bouncy Dillard was on all day for the Fire. In Friday night's action he displayed flashes of his exceptional athleticism, but on Saturday, he took it to a new level when he did this:

Not only did Dillard put on an aerial display, but he was having an uncharacteristically-good shooting day. Against The Family, he finished with a total of 21 points, which came from all areas of the floor.

Luwane Pipkins - 2015 PG - Mac Irvin Fire

Pipkins had a relatively quiet night on Friday, but he poured in 22 points against The Family in Saturday action. He used his quick release to hit a handful of threes and got to the basket when it was available for him. His aggressive defense helped create several loose balls, some resulting in turnovers and subsequent fast breaks. He telegraphed a lot of passes in the half-court sets, but he brought a significant amount of energy and intensity to his team all day. Still one of the more intriguing prospects in Illinois.

MaCio Teague - 2015 SG - All-Ohio Red

Teague absolutely torched the nets in All-Ohio Red's first game of the day, especially from outside. The Cincinnati native set the tone early with 18 points in the first half of their Saturday opener. Teague seemed to find his sweet spot in the catch and shoot game, but he wasn't limited to it, and moved very well without the ball. He played attacking defense and pushed the tempo in the transition game, either by driving to the hoop or getting to a good shooting spot before the defense was set.

Jalen Coleman - 2015 SG - All-Ohio Red

Coleman was great yet again on Saturday. I couldn't identify anything in particular that he did poorly. He defended well, shot well from both outside and at the hoop, and played very much in sync with All-Ohio Red's offensive sets. Teague was the stat-stuffer, but Coleman was the guy that made that team go, and he proved why he's such a wanted man by so many college programs.

Brian Bowen - 2017 SF - The Family

Just a freshman this past year, Bowen is still young, but his skill level is high for a guy his age. At 6'6" Bowen still needs to add strength and weight, but his ability to handle, shoot, and block shots makes him one of the top players in the midwest in the 2017 class. Bowen attends the same high school as 2015 guard Eric Davis in Saginaw, MI. If he can continue to develop his body, his skill set will allow him to create mismatches and be effective from any position on the floor.

Zack Norvell - 2016 SG - Mac Irvin Fire

Norvell had a solid night on Friday, but he was that much better on Saturday. In afternoon action, he dropped 19 points in a win… by halftime.. The lefty can get on a roll and quickly put up points, but he proved this weekend that he was more than a scorer. Norvell uses his length to be a disruptive defender and uses good footwork to keep his man in front of him. He's going to be a big key for the Fire this spring as well as Simeon this coming high school season.
