Caravel Academy

Erique Gumbs (2009, 6-8 PF/C)
Caravel Academy was the surprise team of the tournament. Erique was a huge part of their success. He finished around the hoop much better in this game than on Friday. He had a nice short drive where he converted and was fouled. Erique had a massive game on the boards as well. He still did miss some shots from close range. His size and quickness make Erique a fantastic prospect. He finished with 11 points and 14 rebounds in the victory. 

Dominic Morris (2009, 6-6 PF)
Dominic also gave Kempsville fits inside. He was very efficient inside, including a nice banked shot and a dunk. He also had a couple nice left hand finishes around the hoop. Both of the Caravel big men were very aggressive early on. Dominic drew a lot of fouls. He was a monster on the boards too. He even threw a pretty pass in transition. He scored 15 points and mixed in 10 rebounds. 


Chris Fouch (2008, 6-1 SG) Committed to Drexel
Chris had another key performance as Rice won again. The sharpshooter has unlimited range as he showed from hitting very deep. He nailed several threes in the game, including one at the buzzer to end the third quarter. Heís a player who definitely wonít be hurt next year when the three point line is moved back in the college game. Chris missed most of his three pointers from NBA range in this one. He mixed in several more nice passes and his strong second half was huge for the Raiders. He also rebounds the ball well for a guard. Chris finished with 14 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists.

Dorvell Carter (2008, 6-5 SF)
Dorvell again made his biggest impact on the boards. He really struggled with his jumper and needs to show he can hit that shot more consistently. 

Tyler Montplaisir (2009, 6-8 PF)
This lanky forward was decent off the bench. He displayed a nice deep jump hook in his lone shot attempt from the floor. He pulled down 4 rebounds in his 15 minutes of action. The junior has some work to do to have a big impact on the offensive side, but the natural ability is there.


Ed DiRugeris (2009, 5-11 PG)
Ed is a point guard who really competes. Heís very aggressive off the dribble and often looking to make things happen. He has good vision is excellent at finding open teammates on drive and dish plays. Ed didnít have a huge outing offensively, but he helped make his team better.

Jesse Krasna (2010, 5-11 PG)
Jesse is a steady young point guard. The lefty had a nice drive and dish play and finished later on when going to the basket on another occasion. Heís a solid ball handler, although not super explosive and doesnít consistently get into the lane. 


David Bruce (2009, 6-7 PF)
David played well for the Tigers. The lanky and athletic post player is consistent inside. He has good hands and nice touch around the hoop. He recognizes that heís at his best camping out near the hoop. He doesnít float too far away from the rim. David had a nice bank shot around the hoop and he keeps the ball high when catching passes or grabbing rebounds. He had a strong game on the boards. He showed of his leaping ability with a pair of blocks. David scored 16 points (on 7-10 shooting) and grabbed 10 rebounds.

Des Wade (2008, 5-10 PG) Committed to Houston
Des is a super quick point guard who can get to the hoop off the dribble. Heís certainly a gunner and when heís off like he was today it really hurts his team. He did score 18 points, but shot just 5 for 21 from the floor. Des dished out a couple assists, but also turned the ball over frequently against the steady Pennsbury defense.

Christ the King

Ryan Pearson (2008, 6-7 SF/PF) Committed to George Mason
The usually productive Pearson really struggled in this game. He opened with a number of early misses, including on the inside and from 3. He was blocked on another occasion. He takes the ball right at people and had some trouble doing so in this game as Brandon Greene blocked his shot a couple times. He was much better when he tried to go around people. Ryan did maintain his aggression throughout and was able to get near the hoop. He just couldnít convert consistently. Ryan also struggled from the foul line (3 for 9). He did end the game with 11 points, but it was on 4 of 14 from the field. He also rebounded well as usual, pulling down 10 boards (4 offensive).

Sean Johnson (2009, 6-1 SG)
Sean was on the attack early, but had some difficulty finishing. He scored by rebounding his own miss several times. The slasher had a steal and an assist and followed that up with a runner in the lane. Sean ended the game with 13 points and 7 rebounds. 

Roland Brown (2010, 6-8 C)
Roland is a wide bodied young player who really catches your attention with his size. He rebounds the ball pretty well, but doesnít have much of an impact yet on the offensive end. He moves fairly well and his size really makes him an intriguing prospect.

National Christian Academy

David Diakite (2008, 6-6 SF)
David was very quiet in this loss. The normally aggressive wing only attempted two shots from the field. He did do a solid job on the boards though, pulling down 6. 

Wilbur O' Neal (2008, 6-7 220 PF)
Wilbur doesnít touch the ball a lot, but the big bodied post is very efficient. He scored on 3 of 4 shots and was perfect from the foul line. He scored on a short jump hook one time and took one dribble before getting a layup on another occasion. He kept a lot of plays alive with his strong offensive rebounding. Wilbur had a very solid 10 points and 9 rebounds before fouling out.

Will Barton (2010, 6-5 SG/SF)
Will had several nice plays in this game, but overall the lanky forward struggled to find his shot. While he hit twice from beyond the arc, he did so on seven attempts. Will had a very impressive play where he drove left and then crossed over to the right before banking the shot in. He does like to push the ball after rebounds and he did end up with 4 assists to 3 turnovers. 

Anthony Lee (2010, 6-7 PF)
Anthony actually didnít score a point in this game, but it was hard not to notice the lanky young forward when he was on the court. He did pull down two rebounds and should contribute much more next season.

Towson Catholic

Brandon Greene (2008, 6-6 PF)
Brandon is one of those undersized post players that you just have to love. He commands the ball on the inside and finishes well. He displayed a nice spin move and left handed finish. He can convert with either hand. Brandon scored on an offensive rebound put back and was fouled. Heís displayed quick moves in both games. He showed some athletic ability and blocked Ryan Pearson on one play. Ryan then returned the favor later on. Brandon has good hands and rebounds the basketball very well.

Larry Bastfield (2008, 6-0 PG) Committed to Toledo
Larry opened with a pull up jumper. He has a quick handle and changes directions well. He struggled again with his jumper including a missed three that couldíve won the game. The Toledo bound guard certainly didnít have a strong first two days here. 


Aaron Bracket (2008, 6-7 PF/C)
Aaron had another solid game on the interior. He showed a smooth turnaround jumper in the post. He had a drive and dunk late in the contest. Aaron really battled on the boards throughout the game. He does need to get stronger, but he managed to put together back to back nice outings. He finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Putnam City

Garen Wright (2010, 6-3 SG)
Garen has good size for a guard. He opened with a drive and reverse layup. He then followed that up by burying a three. Garen crashed the boards some too. He did miss badly on a pull up three later in the game. Even with a super talent like Xavier Henry on his team, Garen led the Pirates in scoring. 

Hodgson Vo-Tech

Nafis Richardson (2008, 6-1 SG)
Nafis is a super quick guard. He has an excellent crossover move and his ball handling caused trouble throughout the game. He did a great job of driving and either passing or scoring in the first half. Nafis was red hot from the perimeter too as he buried a couple of difficult pull up threes. The electric guard slowed down as the game wore on, but was still impressive. He scored 23 points in the loss.

St. Mark's

Peter Kaasila (2009, 6-8 PF/C)
Peter had another efficient game for St. Markís. He showed off his range early with a foul line jumper. He grabbed several rebounds as well. The skilled post player had a productive 9 points and 7 rebounds in only 13 minutes off the bench.

Dave Johnson (2009, 5-9 PG)
Dave was much more productive today than yesterday. He dished out 5 assists and hit the game tying three pointer late in the comeback win. He was strong down the stretch as he hit a runner as well in the final few minutes.
