St. Dom's Guard Worth A Look

Scout.com East Coast recruiting expert Mike Sullivan takes a look at the individual game of a guard from St. Dominick's ...

Yes, the competition will get more steep as the Fall IS8 League progresses over the next couple of weeks. But one had to be impressed the way St. Dominick's of Oyster Bay, New York worked its way to a 92-70 victory over KYDA in a pool game held this past weekend in South Jamaica.

St. Dom's spurted out to a quick 26-8 advantage after the first eight minutes of play. The St. Dom's point guard, Roland Davis, was instrumental in making sure the game had a quick pace to it.

Davis, a lefty who has no fear of challenging the bigger bodies inside the paint, distributed the ball effectively. He helped T.J. Thomas score 14 and Markeys Dean 11 during the big first quarter.

But Davis proved he can also score and at different areas on the court. He drained two jumpers, one a three-pointer to finish with 15 points.

Roland can jet past defenders and open up offensive chances for his forwards too. As he becomes better in this transitional decision-making, he can be worthy of some division one looks.

St. Dom's is a well-coached team too. And they play a very tough schedule. So watching Davis this season will be a smart move for some area schools.
