Anthony Sellars (Quality Education) 6’7 2022
He led all scorers on the floor with 17 points in the win. Sellars is an aggressive player and can flat out shoot it. He knocked down 3 triples in the game, and his height makes it tough for any guard to defend and any big to get out and cover
Jordan Wildy (Winston Salem Christian) 6’9 2021
Wildy knows what to do on the court at all times a score and defend player. He is still small for his height, but he is still right there every play looking for a rebound or getting a hand in front of his opponent.
Omari Bolden (Quality Education) 6’3 2022
Bolden does a good job of both attacking the rim and shooting, he is a solid guard who does a great job breaking down defenders and making good decisions with the basketball.
