It's a camp laden with young talent and three kids from the Class of 2007 stole the show. However, there were plenty of standouts from the senior class – from Lawrence Hill.
Charles Little, WF, Cleveland (Tenn.): A relative unknown on the national scene, he's athletic and attacks the basket. Went for 30 points in a morning victory.
Jonathan Kale, BF, St. Andrews (R.I.): Proved that his success in day one was no fluke. Did damage in the paint – again – and is a good get for Providence. Finishes, hits the glass and outworks players.
Leo Criswell, F, Piper (Kan.): Another guy who has been consistent over the first couple days. Arguably the best player at the camp thus far. Scores from just about everywhere and is also making others around him better.
Tyrell Biggs, F, Don Bosco (N.J.): Has been somewhat inconsistent, especially in terms of effort, but he came to play for much of the second day – scoring both inside and out.
Monta Ellis, G, Lanier (Miss.): Did what he always does – scores. He can fill it up from the perimeter and also gets to the basket virtually whenever he wants. Scored 25 in a loss in the afternoon.
Courtney Fells, WG, Shannon (Miss.): Was virtually invisible for the afternoon game, but the N.C. State commit was solid in the night game.
Michael Boyd, WG, Dominguez (Calif.): Athletic and attacks the basket. Also was unselfish and found his teammates for easy baskets.
Richard Semrau, F, Lutheran West (Ohio): Had a big April, but has come somewhat down to earth. Hasn't gotten a lot done, but he's still trying to get used to playing at this high level of competition every night.
Rob Thomas, F, St. Thomas More (Conn.): Mark this guy down for 20 points every time out. Gives 100 percent effort and although he's a bit undersized, he scores at will in the paint. Great in transition.
O.J. Mayo, who received most of the attention. On Friday it was Walker who shined – with 15 points, including a 3-pointer, in the night game.
Eric Wallace, WG-WF, Glenn (N.C.): His teammates basically froze him out in the afternoon game, but he rebounded and displayed an all-around game and poise well beyond his years at night.
