Player/Game Notes:

PSB opened up the game on a nice run to open up an 8 point lead in the first 8 minutes of play. PSB would extend this to a 10 point lead at the half, looking in charge going into the 2nd. Heat would come out with a vengeance though from the half to erase that lead to knot us up at 36-36 with 10 min to play. The Heat would take a lead late and take the win to the house by holding on down the stretch. Player notes are as follows:

Jack Hooten, 6'4 2020 F with PSB – Hard hat/grinder type that just works in the paint. No flash, just tenacious activity. Showed consistent production each time we saw him work. Ceiling may not be as high as others here but this is the solid floor type that a D3 could fall in love with.

Owen Gulledge, 6'2 2020 G with PSB – Slender guard attacked the lane well in this one. Showed a knack for finding the holes in the defense and taking advantage. Super thin, he needs to add muscle and weight big time but still has youth on his side. Tougher than he looks and will get after it. Defense needs to come on to match effort on the offensive end.

Gavin Hughes, 6'1 2020 G with NC Heat – Got it down from the perimeter as a catch and shoot threat and in transition. Rebounds well from his guard spot as well. Will disappear for stretches though in the game. Consistent effort throughout will be next step needed to take.

Myron Poindexter, 5'9 2020 G with NC Heat – Shooter got hot in the 2nd half helping to erase a halftime deficit for his team. Quick and fast with nice spot up ability makes him someone you have to account for. Will wait on the ball to find him a bit much for our taste but can knock it down from distance when it does.
