6’7 ’22 Aidan Hadaway (Atlanta Timberwolves)
It’s easy to see why Hadaway is so highly regarded amongst college coaches, given how much ability he showcased. He’s very skilled for his size, displaying a combination of IQ, vision, and inside-out scoring ability. Hadaway attacks well from the wing and finishes with craftiness around the basket—utilizing both hands effectively. He’s also a useful rebounder and capable defender with the ability to make plays in transition or the half-court.
6’3 ’22 Justin Taylor (Mint Hill Lakers)
Although he’s the newest addition to the team, Taylor looked quite comfortable asserting himself as a scorer from all levels. He applies downhill pressure, knocked down perimeter jumpers, and made solid passes whenever possible. Taylor also intercepted passing lanes well and pushed the break effectively in transition.
5’10 ’22 Elijah White (Team Push)
Despite some struggles as a team, White consistently found ways to shine as a floor general for this group. His vision and passing ability make him an incredibly sharp playmaker with the instincts to access angles that other players simply cannot. White displays high IQ and a willingness to find the best shot available for the team. He should continue appealing to college programs.
6’2 ’22 Umar Lawson (Anthony Morrow Elite)
Like usual, Lawson placed his imprints all over this contest—especially as a finisher and constant force in transition. He’s a legitimate physical specimen with the combination of strength, power, and raw explosion to impact the game in various ways. Lawson also knows how to secure rebounds, make plays defensively, and move without the ball.
6’3 ’22 Will Kelly (Rod Howard Select)
Though it’s somewhat expected at this point, Kelly enjoyed another strong showing as a leader for this Rod Howard Select squad. He’s able to assert himself as a capable scoring option from all levels and in transition. Kelly can create effectively for himself or others, or operate without the ball in his hands. He also battles for rebounds and can force turnovers at a solid rate.
6’7 ’22 Broderick Ellis (Sheed Wallace Select)
There are a lot of appealing pieces on this roster, and Ellis is certainly included within that grouping. He’s more of an interior forward but possesses plenty of skill and tends to naturally cause matchup problems with his inside-out game. Ellis plays hard and rebounds very well as a direct result. He’s a useful finisher and perimeter shooter with the IQ, toughness, and defensive instincts to make a consistent two-way impact.
