BRIAN TOWEY'S SCOUTING REPORT ON JUSTIN NEWTON'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Newton is ruggedly built with good upper body strength, a physical on-ball defender with a strong IQ. He showed a good nose for the ball and rebounded his position extremely well. He is a point guard and catalyst for coach Billy McNally at Poly Prep in Brooklyn, New York
