2022 Tariq Shabazz (Palmetto Elite): Shabazz had a strong Day 2 in Rock Hill, as he played with a natural feel but was excellent in transition.  Getting the ball and going is where he excelled, running out in transition, getting downhill, making strong plays, and finishing around the basket.  But don’t let that fool you because you have to respect his outside game as well, showing his range on multiple occasions as well.

2022 KC Shaw Jr (PSB Elite): It seems that Shaw could be turning the corner and giving us more of a glimpse of his ability to be the go-to type of player. He creates well for himself and uses his length to his advantage to rise over defenders and knock down jumpers.  Shaw has a smooth feel to his game and seems to be elevating his level of player so far this summer.  

2022 Umar Lawson (Anthony Morrow Elite): Lawson simply continues to do what he has always done… One of the more furious attackers in getting downhill and with incredible power and explosion to his game, there aren’t too many players that can slow him down when he is going full speed and determined.  He did that time and time again, showing some real power at the rim for a guard.

2022 6’6 Faheim Meran (Team ME): There are players out there that you simply grab your eyes outside of scoring and Meran was that guy for me.  Meran brings unique size at 6’6 but absolutely loved his vision and hands, finding his teammates with terrific passes and a quality feel on the court.  Really enjoyed what he was able to show on Day 2.

2022 Will Kelly (Rod Howard Select): Kelly came alive late on Day 2, showing what we actually saw for much of the high school season.  But what you get with Kelly is a high IQ, smooth operate, knockdown shooter, and a fundamentally sound guard.  He plays well within the offense but can really take over scoring when needed, something he showed in the second half.
