NBA Camp: UNC Targets on Day 1

RICHMOND, VA -- The UNC targets were hard to find at the NBA Top 100 Camp, especially when Tyreke Evans, Julian Vaughn and Andy Poling all decided to drop out at the last minute. However there were a few Carolina connections that showed up and had strong performances on the first day of action.

Anthony Randolph – SF – 2007 - No one at the NBPA camp has more potential than Randolph, and no one played better than the 6-10 PF on day one of camp. In his evening session game he drained four triples on his way to a 21-point performance. He's long and versatile, shoots it well and is capable of taking guys off the dribble. He finished off his game with a pair of dunks. One came on a fast break and the other was a one handed throw down in transition.

Samardo Samuels – PF – 2008 – At the Nike MDC Samuels was terrific, however today was not his best day. Samuels struggled to get it going in the paint, missing some jump hooks he normally knocks down with ease. The kid plays hard and you have to love his size and toughness. He's still one of the best in his class, but it'll be interesting to see how he bounces back tomorrow.

DeAndre Jordan – PF – 2007 – His morning session game was about as uneventful as they come. He was inactive at times and failed to get his hands on an entry pass that would have led to points. The 6-11, 235-pounder has all the potential in the world but sometimes he just looks uninterested. Towards the end of the game he looked a little more alive as he had a finish inside followed by a two handed throw down.

Ed Davis – PF – 2007 – Every time out, Davis shows you something a little different. At the Nike Memorial Day Classic he showed more of a finesse side to his game, on Wednesday he went to work around the basket. He hit the glass hard and got a bunch of buckets in the paint.

Delvon Roe – PF – 2008 – This Ohio kid had it working in the morning session. He was a scoring machine in the paint. He scored off jump hooks, turnaround jumpers and even mixed in some threes in the night session. He out works his opponents, he knows the game and he's one of the most genuine kids on the circuit.


Patrick Patterson – PF – 2007 – It was a normal day at the office for Patterson, as he went to work on the boards and in the paint. He had some good finishes inside and even stepped out for a long jumper. His defensive tenacity and ability to grab rebounds is special and he will continue to move up in the rankings if this kind of play continues.

Devin Ebanks – SF – 2007 – In the morning session Ebanks showed off his versatility. He started the game with a long jumper and then worked his way in getting a few easy buckets inside. He also had the dunk of the day when he drove to the middle of the lane and slammed home a nasty one hander.
