Senior Game


Raphaiel Putney (2009, 6-9 PF) committed to Massachusetts
Recently committed to UMass, Raphaiel really seems to be making progress with his game. The usually long wing player looks much more comfortable with the ball than he did just a few months backs. Raphaiel really got up and down the floor and often handled the ball. He still doesn't look like a player you'd want to take too many dribbles at this point yet though. He did have a steal and drive for a transition dunk. Raphaiel made several good passes in this game too. He struggled with his jump shot, including an airballed three pointer. The long and athletic forward was also very effective on the boards and he converted on a number of put backs and also cleared a handful of defensive rebounds. We would like to see him with a little more of an inside offensive game though, whether it be a back to the basket game or simply a few face up jumpers. Raphaiel has the length and athletic ability to be effective in that area. He still would greatly benefit by adding weight. He's also much more of a prospect than a player, but Raphaiel's progress since the spring has been swift. If he continues at this pace at UMass, he'll become a real steal. Raphaiel was MVP in the victory.

Daryl Traynham (2010, 5-9 PG)
This small, but quick guard had a strong game attacking the rim. He scored both in transition and in halfcourt sets while going at the rim. Daryl also drew a couple fouls. He hit one pull up jumper, but just couldn't find his pull up shot during the rest of the game. Daryl played aggressive defense against the talented Maalik Wayns. While it didn't stop Maalik, it did slow him down a bit. It wasn't the best game for this playmaker, but Daryl was solid in the victory.

Rashad Whack (2009, 6-2 SG) committed to George Mason
With a talented roster full of guards, Rashad didn't get a lot of playing time. The future George Mason Patriot hit a pull up three pointer. By our count though, he missed on three others from the outside. Rashad also struggled around the rim as he missed a dunk as well as a reverse. He'll certainly have better days.


Maalik Wayns (2009, 6-1 PG) committed to Villanova
Maalik did what he does best, used his speed and size to put a lot of pressure on the defense. He got into the lane often off the dribble and when he wasn't finishing, he was drawing fouls. He hit a tough bank in runner amongst his conversions. Several of his plays were coast to coast baskets. Maalik showed his true lead guard ability as his dished out several beautiful passes. He really struggled with his pull up though. That shot is the difference between him being very good and outstanding.

Denzel Yard (2009, 6-0 PG) committed to Siena
This lefty continues to really impress us. He's a player who we saw a lot of, but never really stood out much until this past summer. Denzel played very well in this one. His speed is what really stands out as he gets from point A to point B in a hurry. He doesn't waste dribble and he explodes to the rim. He scored several times in transition. He also mixed in a couple nice assists on the break. Denzel showed the ability to shoot the rock too as he hit a three and a pull up jumper. He picked up a couple steals on the defensive end as well. He has really elevated his game over the last few months.

Ferg Myrick (2009, 6-5 SF)
This talented wing was solid. Ferg was very aggressive off the dribble and because of that, he drew several fouls. He banked home a shot and was fouled too on the same play. He also stepped outside a buried a three pointer. Ferg did miss another three and was blocked on one play.

Antonio Monroe (2009, 6-0 SG)
Antonio is a solid guard, who played well in this one. He possesses a solid handle and a strong build. He used that to draw a couple fouls. Antonio showed his outside ability as well by hitting a three pointer and another jumper.

Rahlir Jefferson (2009, 6-6 SF/PF) committed to Temple
This athletic forward played well in transition. Rahlir scored a couple times and also made a nice pass on the break. He had a steal and another assist. As usual, Rahlir had a strong game on the boards. He didn't make too many plays in the halfcourt set though.

Andre "Scooter" Gillette (2009, 6-8 PF)
Scooter made several plays. He showed his athletic ability on a pair of dunks and a block.

Will Adams (2009, 6-3 SG) committed to Towson
Will didn't play his best in this outing. He did score a few baskets in transition. The quick guard also drew several fouls when attacking the rim. He did struggle from the perimeter though. Will missed quite a few jumpers, including an airball. He also turned the ball over on a bad pass.

Junior Game


Byron Allen (2010, 6-1 PG)
Byron is a quick guard who can handle the ball very well. He scored in several ways. Byron hit a runner in the lane and hit a tough fall away jumper. He converted a pair of put backs. Byron also drew a couple fouls when using his ball handling skills to get into the lane.

Victor Olidipo (2010, 6-4 SG)
What stood out most about Victor was is athletic ability. He made a couple plays above the rim, including a block and an athletic steal. Victor had another steal and followed that up with an assist. He grabbed a couple boards. He was quiet from the perimeter and airballed one shot.

Jerian Grant (2010, 6-4 SG)
Jerian was rather quiet in this contest. He did score on a nice fall away jumper. He drove to the hoop and drew a foul, but didn't do a lot other things.


Shaq Duncan (2010, 6-8 PF)
The athletic forward put together a good outing. Shaq wowed the crowd with a very high rising one handed follow up. He ran the floor well and also blocked a shot on the defensive end. He does need to take it stronger as Shaq was blocked on several shots inside.

Jamir Hanner (2010, 6-6 SF/PF)
This athletic forward was very effective on the boards. He's a good offensive rebounder who had several put backs. Jamir scored several times in transition, including a dunk. He attacked off the dribble on one play and drew a foul. Jamir failed to convert on both attempts from the free throw line. He did miss a pull up jumper on his lone outside shot. It was a productive game for this forward though.

Deshon Minnis (2010, 6-0 PG)
Deshon didn't get a lot of opportunities, but he continued to impress us when he did get to play. This guard is very quick and can really attack the basket. He finished on one drive and also used a spin move before hitting on a runner. Deshon showed his outside game too with a pull up jumper.

Daniel Stewart (2010, 6-6 SF)
This lanky and athletic forward made some plays. Daniel first scored on a dunk. He was effective attacking in short space, including once scoring after a drive inside. He made several fine hustle plays too. Daniel also showed his leaping ability on a pair of blocked shots. He was a little inconsistent from the free throw line, but overall it was a nice outing for Daniel.

Tyree Johnson (2010, 5-8 PG)
The quick guards for this Philly class weren't as effective as they might've expected to be. Tyree was at his best dishing off after breaking down the defense. He had several assists in limited minutes. The quick guard was quiet in the scoring column though.

Tyrone Garland (2010, 5-11 PG)
When his jumper is on, Tyrone is one of the most deadly players in Philly. Unfortunately, he is also very streak and wasn't "on" during this evening. Tyrone knocked down a few pull up jumpers, including a three pointer. He missed on quite a few more of those type of shots though. His quickness did draw some fouls and he was effective converting from the charity stripe. This scorer certainly wasn't at his best, but he did still produce some.

Sophomore Game


John Johnson (2011, 6-0 PG/SG)
John was certainly a key to victory. The talented young guard was outstanding running the floor. He scored numerous times around the rim, including a couple crafty finishes. John wastes very little time getting to the rim. His straight line speed is so impressive. One of his transition plays resulted in an old fashioned three point play. John attacked in each direction off the dribble. After driving left one time, he dished off an excellent assist. He was quiet from the perimeter in this one and rarely looked to shoot.

Juan'ya Green (2011, 6-3 SG)
This smooth scorer was solid and certainly had his moments. He knocked down a pair of three pointers with his smooth stroke. He also attacked some off the dribble, including drawing a foul once.

Joey Gripper (2011, 6-0 PG)
Joey hit on pull up three pointer early on in the low scoring first half. He ran the floor and made a couple other plays too.


Kevin Smith (2011, PG/SG)
Kevin showed to be a very quick ball handler, who can attack off the dribble. The scoring guard had a fantastic spin move and lay-up. He was solid from the outside too as he hit a pair of pull up three pointers. Kevin's speed caused a lot of problems and his played sparked a DMV comeback run. It wasn't enough in the loss though. Kevin also had a nice assist. It was a strong outing for this young guard.
