From the Sideline

Chick-fil-A Day 2

Part 1

The first day of the Chick-fil-A features teams from the state of the South Carolina. In the past, those games may not have garnished the media attention and sellout crowds. Once known as a football state, South Carolina is quickly becoming a hotbed for basketball and last night was a perfect example. Day 2 at the Chick-Fil-A starts bracket play for the National and American bracket. At the 12:00 PM game between Providence Day (NC) and Westside HS (GA), once again the sidelines were filled with college coaches. Now, let's take a look at the standouts from the early afternoon session at Chick-Fil-A

 

6'2 '18 Devon Dotson (Providence Day, NC)

The Kansas signee did what he does best and that is compete on every single play. There is not a better competitor in the country! In the game vs. Westfield HS, Dotson finished with another game of impressive statistics. He finished with 29 points 10 assists and seven assists. Dotson went 12-23 from the floor and 5-8 from the free throw line. He is one of the few players in the country that can completely dominate a game on both sides of the court. He is constantly pushing the tempo on the offensive end of the court and putting constant pressure on the opposing team. Best of all, he leads by example and plays with passion, purpose, and conviction.

 

 

 

 

6'5 '18 Trey Wertz (Providence Day, NC)

The Santa Clara signee has enjoyed another outstanding performance at the Chick-Fil-A and his shooting statistics make you think the gym at Richland Northeast is his own personal playground. Wertz was extremely efficient, to say the least. He finished with 23 points going 9-11 from the floor including 5-7 from the 3-point line. In addition, Wertz collected five rebounds and dished out two assists. One thing is for certain, Wertz has a rather smooth and fluid game. He rarely gets rushed and plays at his own pace. In addition, we feel like Wertz has never quite gotten the recognition he clearly deserves.

 

 

 

 

6'3 '18 Isaac Suffren (Providence Day, NC)

Isaac Suffren has enjoyed an outstanding senior campaign and his play today was another perfect example why he should be a high priority for mid-major schools. We're talking about a tough, physical wing guard that plays with grit and determination. He is constantly making things happen on both ends of the court. In the game vs. Westside, Suffren finished with 24 points and collected five rebounds while dishing out two assists. He went an efficient 9-15 from the floor including 2-4 from the 3-point line.

 

 

 

 

6'6 '19 Wendell Moore (Cox Mill HS, NC)

Wendell Moore simply makes everyone around him better. The elite level guard has the ability to balance out scoring and passing as well as any prospect in the country. While Moore has the ability to completely dominate play on the offensive end of the court, he does a splendid job of picking his spots. He looks to get his teammates involved but has the ability to turn it on and score buckets in a hurry. Simply put, the game comes so easy to this talented wing guard. For the game, Moore finished with a 'quiet' 31 points going 11-17 from the floor including 4-9 from the 3-point line, not to mention 5-6 from the free throw line. In addition, Moore collected seven rebounds and dishes out two assists.

 

 

 

 

 

 

6'8 '18 Khavon Moore (Westside HS, GA)

Khavon Moore has the size, length, athleticism, and skill that is coveted by so many high major programs. He has the ability to handle the ball as serve as 'point forward,' but is best in attack mode with straight line drives to the rim. In the game vs. Providence Day, Moore finished with 25 points going 11-27 from the floor, 1-4 from the 3-point line, and 2-3 from the free throw line. He collected 10 rebounds, had five blocked shots, dished out four assists. The negative was the eight turnovers. That being said, Moore's best days are definitely in front of him.
