Let’s look toward the standouts.
Welcome to the conversation Mikhail Pocknett. The 6’5″ sophomore from Ashley High School (Wilmington) showcased a full skill set here, with his ability to both initiate, see the floor, rebound and finish at the rim. Pocknett walks on the floor looking the part, but once he plays, once the ball is tipped, it is easy to see the production.
He finished with 21 Points. 7 Boards. 7 Assists. 3 Steals. 2 Blocks.
For Trinity Academy (Raleigh), the duo of junior Tyler Gill and senior Jake Bertolini Felic (Gettysburg commit) did what they could to keep their team in the game. Gill is a ball hawk defense, showcasing excellent hands and great anticipation on the defensive end of the floor. He is a relentless downhill guy, with the ball in his hands.
He finished with 21 Points. 5 Boards. 4 Assists. 6 Steals.
Jake Bertolini Felic a Gettysburg College commit, is the ultimate glue guy with his ability to perform across the board. He plays hard, has good size and is very skilled on the floor.
He finished with 17 Points. 10 Boards.
