The last two games on Saturday of the Prime Time Shootout featured a lot of very talented players.  In the first of the two games Rice took on St. Pat’s, but St. Pat’s proved to have too much firepower.  St. Pat’s coasted to a 74-56 victory.

The final contest of the day pitted Oak Hill Academy against St. Peter’s Prep.  With the level of talent on Oak Hill, St Peter’s looked like a significant underdog.  That is not how the game played out though. 

This turned into a shootout between Doron Lamb and Myles Davis but Myles got some assistance keeping up with Doron from Ron Roberts.  St. Peter’s ended up pulling off a huge upset, winning by the score of 83-78.

Here are the player evaluations from these two games.

Oak Hill Academy vs. St. Peter's Prep

St. Peter's

Myles Davis (2011, 6-2 SG)
This was a phenomenal performance from Myles as he was trading baskets with Doron Lamb.  All of his points were either scored from behind the three point line or from the foul line.  Myles hit a Prime Time Shootout record eight shots from beyond the arc.  He has a smooth stroke and can get his shot off very quickly.  He hit three pointers off the dribble and coming off of screens, as well as having his feet set.  In the waning seconds of the third quarter he went up for a three point shot but on the way up the ball hit off his defenders face and the ball came loose.  Myles reacted very quickly going after the ball and proceeded to speedily launch up a three, releasing it just in time to beat the buzzer, and buried it. 

Since he was simply deadly from three point land, the defenders began to guard him very closely which allowed him to drive.  He was effective driving the ball but on most of his drives he was fouled.  When he went to the charity stripe he was automatic as he hit all nine of his free throw attempts.  Besides his scoring, Myles also demonstrated his ability to pass the ball.  After driving along the baseline and drawing the defense, he threw an over the shoulder no look pass to Ron Roberts for an open jumper.  On a different possession Myles again put the ball on the floor, but this time drove into the lane before throwing a pass that threaded the needle between multiple defenders and went right to his teammate under the hoop.  This performance is sure to send Myles stock skyrocketing.

Keith Lumpkin (2011, 6-9 C)
Early on Keith was struggling to get his shot off against 6-11 Syracuse signee Baye Moussa Keita, as he was blocked on more than one occasion.  Throughout the game though, he was struggling to convert around the hoop.  He did score once on a layup after grabbing an offensive rebound, but missed a couple other attempts around the hoop.  Keith did rebound the ball pretty well and also blocked a couple shots.  On one of these bocks he just stood there with his arms up as a guard crashed into him and was forced to put up an awkward shot, which Keith proceeded to hit back down.  Keith does appear like he could improve his conditioning.  Getting himself in better shape would probably really help his game.

Kevin Walker (2011, 5-10 PG)
Kevin is not the quickest point guard out there but he is crafty with the ball in his hands and can drive by his defenders.  In this contest he had a few very nice takes that he was able to convert on as well.  On one of these plays he drove along the baseline and went up for layup between two defenders.  He then had to adjust mid air to get the layup off, which went in off the glass.  What made Kevin’s game really stand out though was his clutch play at the end of the game.  With less than a minute remaining and his team up three and on defense, he came from behind to tip the ball away, which his team recovered.  After this he also went to free throw line twice and each time he hit both of his free throw attempts.  If he had missed even one of his free throws they may have lost with the way Doron Lamb was shooting the ball.

Ron Roberts (2010, 6-7 SF/PF) committed to St. John’s
Ron was a beast on the boards in this game.  His work on the glass prevented Oak Hill from getting many second chance opportunities to score.  Offensively he hit a couple short to mid range jumpers and finished well around the hoop.  He was even able to convert while being fouled.  On one of these occasions he threw down a two hand slam despite being fouled pretty hard, but he did miss the ensuing free throw.  Later he did successfully convert an old fashioned three point play after being fouled on a tough layup.  On the defensive end of the court Ron was able to block a few shots, including a pair of blocks on back to back shots in the same possession.  His strong inside presence paired with Myles Davis’ shooting basically allowed St. Peter’s to overcome the incredible 49 point effort from Doron Lamb.

Oak Hill Academy

Doron Lamb (2010, 6-5 SG)
This performance by Doron was one of the best individual efforts I have ever seen in a high school basketball game.  Even though Oak Hill is stacked with talent, the game basically turned into the Doron Lamb show, with his teammates often turning into spectators themselves.  Time after time he came down the court and buried jumpers, seemingly going long stretches without missing.  Despite his unbelievable shooting, his team was still down due to outstanding play from Myles Davis and Ron Roberts of St. Peter’s.  At the end of the game Doron almost shot his team back into the contest.  He hit three consecutive three pointers but it would not be enough as St. Peter’s hit clutch free throws.  Obviously Doron was named MVP for his team as he dropped 49 points.

Keith Hornsby (2011, 6-2 SG)
Keith did not get that much playing time in this game and when he was in he did not have many scoring opportunities.  The couple opportunities he did have he didn’t take advantage of.  He missed a short wide open runner in the lane and could not get a tough layup to fall after a nice baseline drive.

Martins Abele (2010, 7-1 C)
Martins is a big bulky center that is not very athletic but when you are seven feet tall you don’t have to jump that high.  His offensive touches were limited but he did score on a two handed put back after grabbing an offensive board, and he had an easy layup after he caught a pass in the post over a defender who was fronting him.

Juwan Staten (2010, 6-0 PG) committed to Dayton
While Doron Lamb was doing most of the scoring for Oak Hill, Juwan Staten still managed to make a couple standout plays.  On one possession he brought the ball up the court himself and as he got to the top of the key he stopped and popped a 3 pointer which he hit.  His other bucket in the game came on a mid range jump shot while on the move.  Juwan did make a great spin move on one occasion but got the ball stripped away from him.

Rice vs. St. Patrick’s


Kadeem Jack (2010, 6-8 PF)
Kadeem picked up two fouls very early which sent him to the bench for a decent amount of time.  Even when he came back in the game though, he wasn’t that effective.  His main issue was that he was posting up too far from the hoop.  This forced him to either shoot jump shots or try to take his man off the dribble, which he was not successful at.  When Kadeem did manage to establish position closer to the hoop he was much more effective.  He hit a pair of hook shots, one of which he was fouled on as well.  One of his teammates threw him an off target lob pass but Kadeem still managed to catch it and laid it in before hitting the ground.  Kadeem did a decent job on the boards but with his leaping ability and length he definitely could have been more of a force on the glass.  You could definitely see the potential Kadeem has in this game but this was not one of his better outings.

Jermaine Sanders (2011, 6-5 SG)
This was a strong performance from Jermaine and he was rewarded by being named team MVP for Rice.  For most of the game Jermaine was scoring his points as a result of attacking the hoop.  On a pair of his drives he hit runners, one from in the lane and one from along the baseline.  After a couple other drives he got fouled and converted all four of his free throw attempts.  While he did shoot a couple jump shots in between these drives, he could not get them to fall.  Later in the contest however he did show that he could hit from the outside, as he buried a pair of three pointers and had another shot from beyond the arc just rim out.

Dashawn Suber (2012, 6-1 SG)
Suber is quick off the dribble and was constantly looking to start up the fast break.  As soon as he would get the ball he would fire up the court.  Off the bounce he was able to penetrate into the heart of the defense before dishing off to an open teammate or drawing a foul.  His crossover proved to be very effective as well.  After crossing his man up on one occasion he then put up a floater over two defenders but could not get it to fall.

St. Patrick's

Derrick Gordon (2011, 6-3 SG) committed to Western Kentucky
This was not a huge offensive performance from Derrick but he did still show off some of his athletic ability.  He threw down a dunk out all along on a fast break, and on another occasion he tried dunking right on his defender but was fouled on the play.  On both of the occasions he went to the free throw line he hit 1 of his 2 attempts.

Josh Daniell (2010, 6-7 SF/PF) committed to Wagner
Josh did not get all that many minutes but he did manage to knock down a pair of jump shots.  One he hit from about 15 feet out and the other was from behind the arc.

Gjon Vukdedaj (2010, 6-8 PF)
Gjon showed good leaping ability and used his hops to block a couple shots and to go up high to pull down rebounds.  His only points of the game were scored around the hoop as he was able to score on a put back layup and on an open layup.
