Just Clean It! (118) - NCP (103)
Team Philly (105) - I-3 All-Stars (66) 

Velton Jones
Just Clean It! 

Jordan Burdine (2008, 6-1 SG)
took advantage of some weak perimeter defense by NCP and put on a three point shooting clinic. The young guard with a smooth stroke knocked down 8 three point shots on his way to a game high 39 points. Jordan also ran the floor well and scored several transition baskets. He can put the ball on the floor some, but typically wonít beat his man in that fashion. Jordan is certainly a player to keep an eye on throughout the rest of the tournament.

Lamar Patterson (2009, 6-3 SG)
This young sophomore had another solid game. He has a very good court sense and is an excellent passer. He also displayed a very smooth pull up jump shot which he can hit from beyond the arc. He has a big body for a wing player and used it to grab a number of rebounds.

Aaric Murray (2009, 6-9 C)
Aaric is one of the more interesting prospects here. He has more upside than anyone thus far in the tournament. Heís a sophomore and already has the size and body to be a legit center. If his game ever catches up to his physical abilities, heíll be a big time prospect. He opened the game with a very impressive thunderous dunk. After that, he went to more of a finesse game. He has very long arms and excellent hands. Aaric also does a good job of establishing position in the interior. He has soft touch in the post, but hasnít developed a good feel for where he is in relation to the basket yet. He would also benefit from powering over defenders rather than trying to softly lay in every shot. Aaric needs to improve on the defensive end as well. Sean Evans was able to power over him time and time again. Aaric didnít appear to be injured, but he sat for long stretches in both halves. Once again, he was dominant on the glass. Aaric is a player whoís development Iíll be sure to watch closely over the next few years.


Sean Evans (2007, 6-7 215 SF/PF)
Iíve complained on several occasions about Sean not using his power game enough. There were certainly no complaints on this evening as he bullied through the Just Clean It! On one play early in the game he took the ball rather weakly to the basket and was plowed over by Aaric Murray (no foul was called). That lit a spark in Sean. The next time down the court he came up with the play of the tournament thus far. He went straight at Murray and threw down a monster slam over the big man. After that, he stayed aggressive and went at the hoop time and time again. Heíd catch the ball about 10 feet from the hoop and use his combination of quickness and power to get to the rim. If he wasnít converting with a lay up, he usually wound up on the free throw line. Foul shooting was his one downfall on this evening as he went 1-8. Sean also showed a nice pull up mid range jumper. His three point shot wasnít on in the game, but even that doesnít look bad when he misses. Sean also used his leaping ability to block six shots. He was a monster on the glass as well, and finished with 31 points and 11 rebounds in the contest. Sean looks to be headed to prep school and if he remains on the mid major level he could be an immediate impact player.

Chauncey Gilliam (2008, 6-5 SG)
Chauncey had a solid game on the offensive end for NCP. He hit a few jumpers and showed his ability to elevate with a nice dunk in transition. He scored a number of buckets in the open court. He was aggressive going to the basket. Chauncey does need to improve on the other end of the court though. Too often heíll go for the steal and give up an open shot. He also lost his cool in this game and drew a technical foul and argued with a teammate.

Miguel Bocachica (2008, 6-5 SF)
This sharpshooter was deadly from behind the arc as usual. He put the ball on the floor on a few occasions, but is far more effective spotting up from deep.

Team Philly

Josh Martin (2007, 6-0 170 PG/SG)
Josh had a very good all around game for the balanced team Philly squad. He scored early on some transition baskets. He knocked down a three. Josh also showed his unselfishness by finding Lavoy Allen two times after breaking down the defense. On one of those plays, he froze the defender with a nasty crossover move. Josh finished with an efficient 13 points and 6 assists.

Lavoy Allen (2007, 6-8 210 PF/C) Committed to Temple
Lavoy is the perfect big man for this guard heavy Team Philly squad. He moves around a lot and gets himself in good position where he can score around the basket off of their passes. He has great hands and a very soft touch. Lavoy was strong posting up as well in this game. He was very quick getting into his moves and going towards the basket. Although he didnít convert, he had a really nice spin move that he worked into a hook shot. As always, Lavoy was a monster on the boards too. He tallied 17 points and 13 rebounds in the game.

Velton Jones (2008, 5-10 160 PG)
Velton is a prototypical, tough aggressive Philly style point guard. He went hard to the hoop a couple of times. One time, he absorbed contact and dished off a beautiful pass for an assist. He passed very well in this game. He also has a smooth stroke and knocked down a pair of three pointers.

Kyle Griffin (2007, 6-3 PG/SG) Committed to La Salle
Kyle had a very solid game. He had a strong take where he bounced off the defender and scored. He buried several threes and scored in transition as well. Kyle scored 20 points on the evening.

Khalil Mumford (2007, 5-11 160 PG/SG) Committed to St. Peter's
Khalil made a couple of nice passes early on. The smooth shooting guard was streaky on this evening. He scored on a couple of transition baskets as well.

I-3 All-Stars

Dwayne Davis (2008, 6-4 SG/SF)
Dwayne continued his strong play here. He opened with a three. He also tried posting up when he recognized a mismatch, although he was unable to use it to his advantage too often. Dwayne was again aggressive driving to the basket. He banked home a difficult shot in the low post over a defenderís outstretched arms. He went cold from the outside in the second half and thus was less effective.

Andrew Young (2007, 6-7 210 SF)
Andrew put together another solid performance. He had a few conversions near the basket, including a nice hook shot. He had some trouble scoring around the big body of Lavoy Allen and wasnít nearly as effective down low as he had been in previous games.
