Went over to the College Coaches Network to watch a JUCO game between Arkansas-Fort Smith and Carl Albert State.  For some reason this footage was only from the second half of the game, and by the time the second half

started Arkansas-Fort Smith already had a huge lead, and ended up winning the game by a score of 120-78.

Due to the lopsided score, some of the games better players did not see as much court time as they usually would.  We originally picked this game to watch Georgia State commit Chris Echols and St. Francis (NY) commit Nigel Byam, but there were some other quality players in this game as well.  The following are player evaluations from the second half footage.

Arkansas Fort Smith

Jared Cunningham (2009, 6-8 PF)
Jared was probably the most impressive player in the time that we viewed this game.  He has impressive length and size, yet he hit multiple shots from beyond the three point line.  He hit a couple pull up jumpers as well.  On one play he caught the pass, gave a quick head fake, stepped left to avoid the leaping defender and proceeded to knock down the three pointer.  Another exciting play that Jared made was a fall away shot over his defender in the post.  Jared does not leap very high on his jump shot but makes up for that with his long arms.  Jared also runs the floor well and did a nice job on the boards.

Chris Echols (2008, 6-6 PF) committed to Georgia State
Right off the bat Chris displayed some athleticism by catching a rebound with one hand and while still in the air, threw down a one handed slam over an unsuspecting opponent.  Chris had one other impressive play, in his limited minutes that showed some pretty good ball handling.  He drove into the lane from outside the arc, made a beautiful spin move to go around a defender, but failed to convert on a tough contested lay up.  Chris was also strong on the boards.

Jenirro Bush (2009, 6-6 SG)
Bush hit a pair of shots from behind the arc, including a pull up three coming off a screen.  He has a very smooth stroke on his shot.  Bush made another nice play when he cut down the middle of the lane without the ball.  His teammate passed to him, and in one smooth motion he caught the pass and then finished with a finger roll over a defender.

Carl Albert State  

Danarius Robinson (2009, 6-9 PF)
Danarius benefited some from teammates creating for him.  He hit a couple open lay ups and also had a wide-open dunk.  Darius also showed he could shoot the ball a little hitting a baseline jumper and another jump shot inside the paint.  On one possession Danarius cut down the lane and was passed the ball.  He caught the pass and flew in banking in the lay up high off the glass.  Defensively Danarius blocked a shot without leaving his feet and was solid on the glass.  What impressed most about Danariusí game was his passing.  He made a couple very nice passes from the perimeter into the paint.  Danarius also had a pass thrown to him in the post he then made a touch pass out to an open teammate on the perimeter.

Nigel Byam (2008, 6-8 PF) committed to St. Francis (NY)
At the start of the second half Nigel made a couple nice plays.  He hit a hook shot in the post over his defender and also hit a turn around jump shot a good step inside the free throw line.  Nigel is a very long thin player, and he uses that length to grab rebounds and shoot over defenders.  While Nigel did not do anything impressive as far as dribbling the basketball, he did look comfortable handling the ball.  Due to the lopsided score Nigel saw limited minutes.
