KC Classic - Phog.net's Day 2 Breakdown

After a full day at Okun Fieldhouse, here are the standouts from Day 2.

Martin Bros. 16s

Marcus Paige – 6'0 PG, 2012 – Once again, the savvy point guard controlled every facet of the game. His crafty ballhandling is unmatched at the event, and his overall feel for the game is making things easy for the Martin Brothers squad.

Athletes First

Nino Jackson – 6'2 PG, 2012 – Jackson is lighting quick and possibly faster than that. He's got a great crossover and can get into the lane at will. When the deep 3 is falling, he's unstoppable.

Ryan Spalding – 6'7 PF, 2011 – Spangler is certainly an impressive athlete, standing a full 6'7 and weighing at least 220lbs. He plays hard and finishes through contact at the rim. Don't expect him to play basketball, though, as it sounds like he's a top-notch QB prospect.

Josh Richardson – 6'4 SF, 2011 – Essentially the running mate to Jackson, Richardson has a good stroke out to the 3pt line and excellent athleticism to go with it. His decision making is suspect, but he's otherwise a nice prospect.

Team Texas

Zach Peters – 6'9 PF, 2012 – Peters struggled through some of the day, but when he ratcheted up the intensity he was a force in the paint. Team Texas needs him to be as their playing with only 6 players in the event.

Jamal Branch – 6'2 PG, 2011 – The Texas A&M Aggie commit was in fine form until missing some of the afternoon with cramps. He's very quick with the ball and has a wonderful right-left crossover. He's not a consistent 3pt shooter yet, but he'll be excellent for Mark Turgeon's squad.

Jordan Green – 6'3 SG, 2011 – Another Aggie verbal commitment, Green has a lot of potential as a college two guard. He's got great leaping ability and loves to throw down on anyone in his way. He's got good slashing ability already, but will need to develop his long-range game to reach his potential at the next level.

The Life

Chris Coleman – 6'10 C, 2011 – Coleman is easily the most physically imposing prospect in attendance, as he's easily in the 270lb+ range. He's not a great athlete, but he does appear to have a good skill set, including a surprisingly good knack for passing.
