6’5 ’21 Omarion Farrar (Capital City Pacers)
The long, athletic wing prospect opened the day with an excellent two-way showing and essentially led his team in all statistical categories. Farrar shot the ball well from the perimeter but really stood out for his rebounding and ability to attack the basket. He was an excellent leader from start to finish and made multiple critical plays down the stretch.
5’10 ’21 Jaquan Fletcher (D1 Dynasty)
The smart, quick point guard was easily among the most impressive floor generals on display through the first half of the day. Fletcher is extremely poised with the ball in his hands, given his ability to relentlessly get by the point of attack, enter the paint, and make plays for himself or others. He’s a crafty, unselfish playmaker that simply made his team better with his two-way presence.
6’1 ’21 Antonio Pruitt (Carolina Knicks)
We’ve seen Pruitt multiple times this summer with West Meck, so it was nice to see him continuing to perform at a high level with this group. He was easily their most reliable performer throughout this contest, especially on offense, given his ability to create for himself and others while scoring from all three levels. Pruitt is a capable shooter, but his craftiness as a penetrator is what makes him so tough for opponents to contain.
5’11 ’21 Kyle Marks (Upward Stars Upstate Blue)
The smooth guard prospect was certainly the most reliable performer for this Upward Stars squad. He’s crafty and understands how to consistently generate offense, both for himself and others, and was able to apply constant pressure from all three levels. Marks can play alongside another ball-handler, given his spot-up ability, but typically works best with the ball in his hands.
6’1 ’21 Harper Neal (Team Passion)
In many ways, Brown was the most dominant floor general on display through the first half of the day. He offers such a strong balance between scoring and playmaking, constantly able to set up others while picking and choosing his spots as a scorer. Brown scores the ball with great efficiency from all three levels and forces turnovers at a solid rate on defense.
5’8 ’22 Quentin Rice (Team Hickory)
Folks should start getting excited about Rice, as he’s going to be a major contributor over the next calendar year. He’s slightly undersized, but has a strong, compact frame and knows how to utilize it on both ends of the floor. Rice is so smart and polished with the ball in his hands, able to consistently set the table for others while being an excellent all-around defender. He’s very quick and great in the open floor, which highlighted his ability to attack the basket and finish through contact.
6’4 ’21 Kamell Smith (NC Ice)
The new-look NC Ice squad has looked quite tough with Smith as one of the primary pieces. He’s a big, strong-bodied wing that scored the ball at an extremely efficient clip from all three levels. Smith is an explosive leaper with the ability to finish, rebound, and block shots, regardless of contact. Smith displayed an excellent all-around game and was arguably the most productive player on either team.
5’10 ’21 William Rhodes (PSB Robinson)
The heady point guard was arguably the most well-rounded player on this team, given his ability to affect the action on both ends of the floor. Rhodes made intelligent reads with the ball in his hands but also knocked down shots from midrange and beyond the arc. He has smooth playmaking tendencies and was able to make the right play quite regularly.
6’1 ’21 Xavier Madison (Vertical Thunder)
In terms of scoring, Madison was among the most impressive performers on display during the first half of the day. He was absolutely unstoppable on offense, hitting basically everything he touched from all three levels—both off the catch and dribble. Madison was also extremely efficient with his touches and secured his forty-point outing on a very low number of attempts.
