ABCD Camp: Notes From Day 2

After an eventful opening day at the Reebok-sponsored ABCD Camp, Day 2 arrived with more of the same. Below are notes and observations of some of the area's top performers from around the NYC/NJ area ...

 

Corey Chandler - Chandler had a terrific performance in the afternoon, showing off not only his offensive prowess but also his athleticism and ability to distribute the ball. Corey scored 13 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and had 5 assists, while shooting 6 of 10 from the field. He was always involved in the offense and kept his team in the game. SOR talked briefly with Corey Chandler after his 2:30 game and told us he was pleased with his performance. Corey also talked about his influence on Idris Hilliard, who is considering Rutgers. "I'm going to talk with [Idris] tonight," Chandler said. "He's been getting a lot of mail from Rutgers….he's a terrific player."

 

Idris Hilliard - Hilliard and Chandler provided a large chunk of the offense for their squad, and worked well together again. The two are a really solid 1-2 combo. The Hun School product is extremely active around the basket as well. Hilliard had 9 points, 3 rebounds and a blocked shot on 4 for 4 shooting in the afternoon.

 

Zack Rosen- After an average afternoon performance yesterday, Rosen has picked up his game considerably, scoring in double figures in three straight games. Rosen has much more confidence offensively compared to the first day. He's getting good penetration and drawing fouls. Through four games, he is averaging 11.5 points.

 

Miles Beatty- Beatty had 10 points, 3 rebounds on 4-4 FG shooting, including 2-2 from downtown in the afternoon session. During the evening, he came out with great intensity and exploded for 16 points, including 4 three pointers. He is currently shooting 50% from beyond the arc (9 for 18) so far in four games.

 

Hamidu Rahman- When I watched Rahman, he looked very cumbersome around the basket. He can't really jump and is not mobile at all. He did score 15 points and grab 6 rebounds in his first game today, but only had 4 points in his 2nd game. He is averaging 6.8 points and 4.8 assists so far.

 

Anthony Raffa - Somewhat unknown to us, we took some time to scout Raffa since he's a Jersey kid (Wildwood Catholic). He's undersized, but is pesky on defense. At times, Anthony is pedestrian on offense (only averaging 4 points a game), but did make some nice passes and scored 12 points in his last game. We learned after the game that Raffa is not receiving interest from Rutgers, but has the attention of basically the entire A-10 conference.

 

 

Travon Woodhall - Woodhall really impressed with an exceptional performance in the afternoon. The St. Anthony's 6-1 guard is a tremendous Class of 2008 prospect. He is an extremely athletic, hard-nosed player with a knack for getting to the hoop. Around the basket, he is a solid finisher and knows how to distribute the ball after he penetrates. He has terrific court vision and can also stroke it from the outside. Statistically, Woodhall dropped 19 points, along with 4 assists and 3 steals while shooting 70% from the field. Woodhall is gaining the attention of colleges, including Rutgers. Apparently, he is good friends with Marquis Webb. A separate article on Woodhall should be coming in the next few days. 

Sylven Landesberg – A rising junior at Holy Cross High School in Queens, Landsberg has great potential. He is long and has great size at 6-6, with plenty of room to put on more weight. Sylven put up 11 points and grabbed 5 boards in his evening game.

 

 

Bobby Gonzalez was in attendance today, and we spotted him chatting with Florida's Billy Donovan. He was overheard telling Donovan that Gonzalez and Fred Hill are like the "crime bosses" of New Jersey basketball.

 

Fred Hill was in attendance for day two. Heather Zurich, a guard on the Rutgers' women's basketball team, was also on hand to watch some basketball during the evening session.
