Waterview Dan Rumph II

Malcolm Eleby (2007, 6-3 PG) Committed to St. Bonaventure

I haven’t seen this lanky point guard in awhile, but he didn’t disappoint.  He was good finishing in transition as usual.  He attacked the basket and dished off to teammates several times.  He will often pass the ball at the last minute when he’s at the top of his shooting motion and defenders are leaving their men underneath.  Malcolm didn’t drive all the way to the basket all that often, partly due to the fact that he was getting fouled near every time he shot around the hoop, but nothing was being called.  Instead, he knocked down pull up jumper after pull up jumper from the mid range area.  I don’t ever recall seeing him knock down as many shots from that area as he did tonight.  While Malcolm was effective with the pull up jumper, he does need to get that shot off quicker.  Several times he was either blocked or fouled from behind because it took him too long to release the ball.  On one occasion, the ball was partly blocked and he still sunk the shot.  The biggest knock on Malcolm has always been his perimeter shooting ability.  He still isn’t consistent from behind the arc, but he did hit a three pointer on this evening.  At times he tends to overshoot the ball as well.  Malcolm also rebounded well in this contest and picked up several steals.  One other move I’d like to see him add to his arsenal is a floater in the lane.  With his length and quickness, he’d be nearly unstoppable with that move.  Malcolm is a fantastic pickup for the Bonnies and should play a key role immediately. 

I-3 All-Stars

Andrew Young (2007, 6-7 SF)
Andrew is a solid low post player who can score with his back to the basket.  He loves to work off of a spin move into a half-hook shot.  He has soft touch around the rim and even used the glass on one occasion.  While the spin move is effective, he seems to rely on it too much.  He did attempt to dribble left towards the middle of the paint one time, but instead of putting up a left-handed hook, he shot using his right hand with the defender in his face.  Andrew doesn’t make a lot of athletic plays, but he makes up for it with a good skill set.  In addition to soft touch, he has long arms and sound footwork.  In this game, Andrew was also effective converting lay-ups off of feeds from his guards.  He was solid on the boards.  Andrew could also benefit by adding some muscle. 

Dwayne Davis (2008, 6-4 SG/SF)
Dwayne had an excellent all around game.  He is an aggressive guard who loves to attack the basket.  He uses his body in the lane to shield defenders rather than beating them with quickness.  He has a solid build and good size both of which helped him grab a number of rebounds.  Dwayne ran the floor well and scored several easy buckets in that fashion.  He’s also a good outside shooter, even though his form isn’t great (he has a hitch in his shot).  He blocked several shots, thanks in part to good timing.  Dwayne added several nice passes to his teammates.  He also hustled after several loose balls.  Dwayne is already looking like a good mid level prospect.

Travis Robinson (2010, 6-4 SG/SF)
Travis is a terrific young prospect.  He already has the body of a senior, but is only a freshman.  He’s an athletic player who is smooth in transition and an excellent finisher.  Travis a very capable jump shooting as well.  He doesn’t have the best form, but is still effective.  He did go cold from the perimeter in the 2nd half though.  Travis also blocked a shot in this game. It’s easy to see why Travis a nationally regarded player.

Dominic Morris (2008, 6-6 PF)
Dominic is a big bodied forward who combines skill with power.  He was somewhat quiet on this evening and didn’t get a lot of touches.  He did have a nice spin move in the paint and he has nibble feet for a man of his size.  Dominic also has very good hands.  I expected him to have more of an impact on the boards, but those opportunities were partly reduced due to his team playing zone defense.

Steel City

John Hogga (2007, 6-5 SF) Committed to St. Peter's
After sitting out the first half because of an injured ankle, John showed his toughness by playing in the second half.  He knocked down a three pointer early in the game and later hit a deep jumper just inside the three point stripe.  He did struggle running on the ankle so his impact was limited.

Tamir Johnson (2007, 6-5 PF) Committed to Central Connecticut State
Tamir is tough to stop around the basket, even if he is undersized.  He’s strong and quick with his moves.  He had a couple of nice lay ups in the half court offense.  Tamir went the same direction several times in the post and after a few baskets his shot was altered on one attempt.  He then went back the other direction the next time and converted.  Tamir was good on the boards as usual.  Even when he misses a shot, he’s often able to grab the rebound.  He also hit a deep jumper which is something I haven’t seen him do very often.

Jermaine Washington (2007, 5-11 PG) Committed to Central Connecticut State
After a slow start, Jermaine really started to heat up in the 2nd half.  He knocked down several threes.  He also scored on a nice floater in the lane and finished fairly well when he got to the basket.  He had a couple of nice passes, but a few turnovers to go along with it.

Waterview Phoenix

Andrew Randall (2008, 6-5 SF/PF)
After a relatively quiet first game of this tournament, Andrew came up big on this evening.  He had a beautiful behind the back pass in transition early on in the contest and continued to pass well.  He was most effective in the scoring column though and particularly in the low post.  Andrew hit several beautiful turn around, fade away jumpers after posting up.  He ran the floor well, but was somewhat inconsistent finishing in transition.  Although he has a smooth stroke, Andrew has also seemed to struggled hitting his perimeter shot the last few times I’ve seen him.  Overall, he had a very good game though.

Russell Johnson (2008, 6-6 SF)
Russell struggled early with a couple turnovers.  He showed his ability to put the ball on the floor as he drove to the foul line area and drew a foul.  Russell was also very good on the boards as well and had several put backs.  He struggled on the few jumpers he took. 


Corey Chandler (2007, 6-1 SG) Committed to Rutgers
Corey is such a smooth penetration and a joy to watch.  He gets to the hoop with ease and can finish in traffic.  He buried several threes in this game, but his shot was streaky on this occasion.

Daryl Lampley (2007, 5-9 PG) Committed to St. Peter's
There’s not much positive to say about Lampley on this evening.  He didn’t do a lot offensively to help his team, but more importantly he actually hurt them with multiple technical fouls.  He lost his cool and talked back to the ref after fouling out of a two point game in the final minute.  This resulted in a technical which allowed Team Kobe to pull away.  He certainly has to learn to keep his cool in situations like that.

Team Kobe

Greg Robbins (2009, 6-4 SG/SF)
Greg makes such a difference for this team and he could really help them on the AAU circuit.  His size and skills create match up problems.  He showed his versatility by hitting and nice pull up mid range jumper and also scoring on a turn around jumper in the low post.  Greg was fouled on the post play and converted on the free throw for 3 points.  He was also active on the boards and scored often in transition.  Greg is willing to get his teammates involved too as he showed with a few nice passes.    

Ligah Thompson (2009, 6-7 PF)
Ligah was very active in this game.  He is becoming a very good finisher around the hoop, whether his teammates set him up or he follows up on missed shots.  Ligah threw down a number of dunks in this contest.  He’s developed a lot and become very aggressive on the offensive end in the past year.  It’ll be interesting to see if he’ll add a back to the basket game or short jumper to his arsenal. 

Khalif Wyatt (2009, 6-2 PG)
As is often the case, Khalif had an impact in the scoring column.  He hit a nice runner in the lane and knocked down a three point and was fouled (he missed the free throw though).

Henry Smith (2009, 6-5 SF)
Henry is usually quiet on the offensive end for this team.  Today he played an aggressive game.  He ran the floor well and had several solid finishes.  He also hit a tough pull up three pointer.
