Most of the top teams in the northeast region took the court this weekend in the Primetime Shootout in Trenton, NJ.  CAA Insider was on hand Saturday to take in most of the action.  Here is a look at some of the standout players.


St. Raymond's 50 Timber Creek 47
Bishop Loughlin 76 Union 66
Rice 61 Rancocas Valley 35
St. Benedict's 75 Mountain State Academy 61
Westchester 85 Lincoln 78
St. Anthony's 71 Hotchkiss School 45
Oak Hill Academy 73 St. Patrick's 64

Bishop Loughlin

Branden Frazier (2010, 6-2 SG)
This lanky guard exploded onto the scene for the Lions.  Branden had a stellar afternoon as he used a smooth stroke to bury 6 three pointers en route to a 36 point performance.  Branden hit from deep both off the dribble, as well as the catch and shoot variety.  He ran the floor well too and converted on several lay-ups.  Branden threw a nice pass and blocked a shot.  His ball handling looked okay, but he didn't attack much in this contest.  Not surprisingly, he was named Player of the Game for his team in the victory.  Branden will definitely be a player worth keeping an eye on this summer.

Trevon Hamlet (2009, 6-6 SF)
Trevon had a very nice all around game.  The forward opened with a deep jumper.  He's most effective working inside as a face up player though.  He can finish after short drives on the inside.  One of those baskets was an old fashioned three point play.  Trevon was very unselfish as well and used his size to pass over the defense quite often.  He really crashed the boards on both ends of the floor as well.  With Jayvaughn Pinkston out of the contest, Travon got to showcase more of what he can do.

St. Anthony's

Dominic Cheek (2009, 6-5 SG/SF) Committed to Villanova
Dom lead the Friars attack and showed why he's one of the elite players in the country.  The Villanova bound wing played a great all around game.  From the outside, he hit several jumpers including those of the pull up variety.  He attacked off the dribble and finished with his left hand on one play and a scoop shot on another.  Dom was terrific in transition and he makes good decisions, whether it is scoring or passing the ball.  Quite a few of his transition plays were due to his ability to play the passing lanes on the defensive end.  In addition to picking up steals, Dom's strong defense forced talented Hotchkiss guard Jason Morris into difficult shots.  He clearly frustrated Jason all game long.  Dom finished with a very impressive 25 points in front of his future head coach Jay Wright.

Devon Collier (2010, 6-7 PF)
This lefty is very talented and has been a huge addition to the St. Anthony's frontcourt.  Devon finishes very well around the rim and runs the floor well.  Devon can attack off the dribble too, as he showed on an old fashioned three point play.  He had a monster game on the boards in this victory.  The skilled forward really stood out.

Ashton Pankey (2010, 6-7 PF)
Ashton showed off his solid all around skills in this one.  On the inside, he hit a turnaround jumper and banked home another shot.  He had an athletic follow-up and hit a face up jumper too.  Ashton showed more of the athletic ability with several blocked shot.  He grabbed a few boards and also threw a nice pass on one play.

Jamee Jackson (2009, 6-7 PF) committed to Quinnipiac
With some really talented frontcourt mates, Jamee was relatively quiet.  He did finish inside on a few plays.  One of those was a follow-up of his own miss with a foul.  He missed a couple inside shots too though.  Jamee pulled down a few boards in the contest as well.

Derrick Williams (2010, 6-6 PF)
This big body forward had most of his impact on the boards on each end of the court.  Derrick scored on a couple putbacks, but otherwise was rather quiet in the scoring column.  He had several turnovers in the game.  Derrick could benefit by dropping some weight.

Mountain State Academy

Justin Drummond (2010, 6-1 SG)
Justin is a guard who showed a very nice stroke from the outside.  He hit a couple three pointers among his jump shots.  One of his shots was of the pull up variety.  Justin also ran the floor pretty well.

Jabs Newby (2010, 6-1 PG)
Jabs showed some athletic ability with a transition dunk.  This lead guard proved to be a quick ball handler.  He scored on a floater in the lane off the dribble.  Jabs also converted an offensive rebound putback.

TyQuane Goard (2011, 6-6 SF)
TyQuane is an athletic player who made a couple plays.  He blocked a shot on the inside.  On the perimeter, TyQuane banked home a deep jumper.

Rancocas Valley

Mike Bersch (2009, 6-6 SF) committed to American
This big forward is quite the unique player.  He's a deadly shooter from beyond the arc.  In this one, Mike finished with 12 points on four three pointers.  His shooting ability and size will be an asset in the Patriot League.  He does need to improve upon his ball handling to show that he can make plays off the dribble.  Mike has the body to be a force on the inside at his next destination, but he'll really need to work on his post game to do so.  Right now, he's primarly a wing player.

St. Raymond's

Tyreak Johnson (2009, 6-0 PG)
We only managed to catch the second half of this game, but Tyreak was very impressive.  During that stretch, he hit on three shots from beyond the arc.  He keyed the comeback win with several plays down the stretch.  Tyreak hit four free throws to finish the game.  The steady point guard doesn't have the quickest handle, but he doesn't make too many mistakes either.  Tyreak finished with 20 points in the victory and was named Player of the Game for the Ravens.
