Here is more coverage from Saturday's action at the Hoop Group Southern Jam Fest in Hampton, Virginia.

Virginia Assault

Chris Burton (2010, 6-5 SF)
Chris is a well built wing player.  The slasher was very impressive attacking from the perimeter and finishing around the rim.  His strength is a big plus for him to convert in the lane.  The lefty is a solid ball handler, but isn't super explosive.  He was quiet from the perimeter in this one.  Chris really stood out with his ability to drive and finish though.

Omari Grier (2010, 6-3 SG)
Omari had a solid game.  The wing ran the floor and scored several times on the break.  He added in another short drive and banked finish after an offensive rebound.  He proved that he can handle the ball.  He hit on a three pointer from the outside too, but didn't take many jump shots.  He played well on this day.

Oreal Griffin (2010, 6-2 SG)
This guard put together a nice game.  Oreal showed the ability to shoot out to three point range and off the dribble.  He did airball one three point attempt though.  He possesses a good set of hands.  Oreal showed some fine passing skills too.  He attacked off the dribble a few times as well.  He was part of a good set of wing players on the Virginia Assault team.

Justin Burrell (2010, 5-8 PG) committed to Mount St. Mary's
Justin hit a three pointer early.  Following that shot though, he missed several jumpers against a zone defense.  The lead guard showed some quickness, but didn't attack much, instead he settled mostly for jumpers.  Justin actually sat through good portions of the game.  By all accounts, he played much better in the afternoon game and we'll have information on that game in our upcoming reports.

Carolina Flight

Jeremy Jeffers (2010, 6-5 SG)
Jeremy is a good sized left handed wing player.  He's a fine ball handler who can attack off the dribble.  He scored a few times off the bounce, drew a foul and dished off an assist.  Jeremy is fairly athletic too.  He didn't shoot from the perimeter.  He also would benefit by getting stronger.  Jeremy showed some fine skills attacking though.

George MaNgoue (2010, 6-8 230 C)
George is a post player with some strength.  He made most of his impact on the glass.  He grabbed some defensive rebounds and scored on a putback.  He had some trouble grabbing the ball or he would've cleared even more boards.  George was rather quiet in the scoring column and his touches were limited.

Denzel Robinson (2010, 6-5 SF)
Denzel had a solid game.  He grabbed a few rebounds.  After one, he went coast to coast and finished using a finger roll.  He showed a solid handle.  He drew a foul on a reverse too.  Denzel missed a post hook and had a turnover.  He did make a few plays though.

Westchester Hawks

Chris Manhertz (2010, 6-6 SF/PF)
Chris has some impressive physical skills.  This forward is strong and very athletic.  That combination made him tough to stop when he got the ball around the rim.  He finished with a foul to convert for an old fashioned three point play.  Chris had an impressive dunk too.  He didn't show much away from the basket, but his natural abilities made him really stand out.

Brian Voelkel (2010, 6-5 SG/SF)
Brian is a skilled combo forward.  Most impressive in this game was his passing skills.  He displayed a pretty good handle, including a nice crossover move.  He moves well without the ball and that allowed him to make a few plays on the inside.  He was fouled after a spin move in the paint on one play and drew another foul after an offensive rebound on another.  Brian really struggled with his outside shot.  He missed several three pointers, including an airball.  He definitely showed a good skill set though.

Triangle Thunder

Joreal Bennett (2010, 6-1 PG/SG)
Joreal is a lead guard who put together a fine game.  He possesses good size for the position and the ability to attack off the dribble.  He often drove left and finished once with a scoop shot.  Joreal stepped outside and drained a three pointer too.  He dished off after attacking on another play.  He was solid for the Triangle Thunder squad. 

Prince Williams (2010, 6-2 SG)
Prince was at his best in transition.  He scored three early baskets on the break.  He stepped outside and hit a three pointer.  He also made a few plays around the rim, including one finish that tied the game.  Prince hit a couple free throws too.

Boo Williams II

Ovie Sako (2009, 6-7 SF)
Ovie is a slashing wing player.  He caused a lot of problems for the defense with his ability to get to the hoop.  He gets there rather quickly off the bounce and has the size to finish in traffic.  Ovie was able to convert around the rim quite often, but did miss a few times as well.  He can attack in either direction from the perimeter.  He didn't shoot much from the outside, opting instead to drive to the rim.  He'd certainly benefit by showing a shot.  Ovie played quite well regardless though.

DJ Covington (2010, 6-7 PF)
DJ made a few plays on the inside.  He hit a post hook shot early on and followed it up with an offensive rebound putback.  He drew a foul later on and also blocked a shot on the defensive end.  He missed on a free throw line jumper.  DJ was actually injured and sat out a good portion of the game, but he still made enough plays to garner our attention.

Olivet BBC

Marcus Dawkins (2011, 6-4 SG/SF)
Marcus is a bouncy guard with a quick handle.  This left handed wing showed the ability to shoot it from the perimeter as he nailed a pair of pull up three pointers.  He possesses a smooth stroke.  He had a drive and drew a foul on one play, but actually didn't attack enough.  Marcus is quite athletic too as he showed on a block.  He should've been more assertive in this contest.  He does have a lot of ability though.

Desi Washington (2010, 6-0 SG)
Desi proved to be a very good perimeter shooter.  Early on, he hit a pair of three pointers.  He followed that up with pull up jumper from inside the arc.  He can handle the ball a little, but isn't super quick.  He could benefit by showing other things besides a jump shot, but Desi can definitely hit from deep.
