Khalif Wyatt
State Playoff action continued over the past week in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  CAA Insider was on hand for a number of games.  Here is a look at some of the top performers.


Salem 64 Paulsboro 59
Norristown 66 Mechanicsburg 50

Chester 61 Harrisburg 51
Timber Creek 58 Middletown South 32


Khalif Wyatt (2009, 6-2 PG/SG)
This smooth scorer had another fine outing. He makes everything look easy when the ball is in his hands. Khalif picked up a few steals and got out and ran the floor. He can change directions off the dribble and with his size he gets off shots against most defenders. Weíve really been impressed lately with Khalif's passing. His vision is good even while heís in motion. He had several assists that were right on the money. Khalif scored in a number of ways too. He sliced through traffic and banked in a runner; he buried a couple pull up jumpers (including a three) and hit a floater after a spin move as well. Khalif does still reach too much on defense. He needs to work on just staying in front of his man. His long arms did disrupt the passing lanes and lead to several steals. Khalif is very tough to guard and he scored at will in this one.  He had 18 points in this contest.

James Ramsey (2009, 6-1 SG)
This gifted lefty made several nice plays. He was particularly strong around the rim where he banked in two high degree of difficulty shots. James also buried a three pointer.


Daryus Quarles (2010, 6-5 SF)
Daryus is a skilled young player. Heís very fluid with the ball in his hands and can attack off the dribble. The lanky wing can shoot over most defenders heíll face. He glides around traffic and loves to go to the mid range jumper. He can certainly hit from there, but could be a little more consistent than he was in this one. Daryus also rebounds well out of his area. He posted up some, but didnít convert much inside. He is very thin now and would certainly benefit by getting bigger. Daryus is already a solid player and looks like he has the potential to be very good in the future. He finished with 16 points for the Red Raiders. 

Kevin Johnson (2010, 5-8 PG)
This small point guard can get into the lane and finish around the rim. He banked home a tough shot in traffic. Heís a ball handler who can change directions. Kevin did hit pull up jumper, but needs to become more consistent from the perimeter. He also would benefit by showing he can be more of a setup man. Kevin did finish well, but at times his lack of size hurt him among bigger players. 


Derrick Parsley (2009, 6-6 PF)
Derrick had a very workmanlike effort in the victory. He isnít the most athletic player, but the undersized post is strong and aggressive. He cleaned up on the glass throughout the game. He finished very well around the rim and took advantage of some fine passes from his teammates. Derrick had a pair of dunks. Heís tough to defend on the inside, but the more he could show from the perimeter, the more his stock would rise. He was caught up in foul trouble and sat for good portions of the second half. Derrick still managed 16 points.

Timber Creek

Collin Johnson (2009, 6-4 SG/SF)
Collin is a left-handed guard who can score. He banked in a three pointer early on. He followed that up with several nice finishes around the rim, including a pair of reverse lay-ups. He got up and down the floor all game. Defensively, he picked up a couple steals and showed his athletic ability with a blocked shot. Collin led the way with 19 points in this one.

Montez Blair (2009, 6-3 SG)
Montez is another smooth guard. Heís a solid ball handler who ran the floor and scored in transition. He also hit a three pointer and looked to push the ball when rebounding.

Jameer Briggs (2010, 5-9 PG)
Jameer played another steady game at point guard. Heís a good side to side dribbler who can get to the rim and score or distribute. He had several nice drive and dish plays, including an alley oop assist. On this balanced attack, he doesnít put up huge numbers. Instead, Jameer makes some plays and does a good job of running the offense.

Tyler Hines (2008, 6-6 PF)
Tyler was rather quiet from a scoring standpoint, but it was difficult not to notice his rebounding. He grabbed board after board on both ends of the floor. Heís really aggressive and goes up and plucks the ball out of the air. He did have an athletic transition dunk. Most of his points come off the glass as his touches within the offense are limited. Tyler made a nice pass on one play as well. 


Kevin Green-Germany (2008, 6-0 PG/SG)
Kevin has really played well all year. The guard knocked down a couple pull up jumpers as well as a huge three in a tight situation. Kevin has really impressed us as of late with his ball handling. He can put it on the floor and get by his man. Typically he wonít attempt to drive all the way to the rim. He opts instead to pull up from the mid range area. Kevin also got up and down the court and finished with 15 points.

Russell Johnson (2008, 6-6 SF)
Russell always does the dirty work for the Clippers and this evening was no exception. Heís one of the best rebounders around. He battled on the boards on both ends all game long. He scored most of his points off of missed shots. Russell tried to shoot from the perimeter, but couldnít find his jumper. He also drove to the hoop a few times, but mostly camped out in the paint. Russell finished with 11 points and 16 rebounds.

Karon Burton (2008, 5-8 PG)
Not too many players have 14 points and 10 assists on an off night. Thatís how good Karon Burton is though. Naturally, the playmaking guard still had some highlight reel plays. He banked in a tough left-handed runner. He sliced through the entire Harrisburg defense on a coast to coast finish. He scored in transition quite often. Karon had several nice passes as well. He really struggled to hit his jumper in this one though. When his shot is on, Karon is a completely different player. While he did reach double figures in assists, he also turned the ball over too often.


Eric Henry (2009, 5-8 PG)
Eric is a small, but quick playmaking guard. He had several beautiful passes. He also converted on a couple tough reverse lay-ups. Eric brought the crowd to its feet with a fake behind the back pass which he converted into a basket. He did have an assist on a behind the back pass too. Ericís play was very erractic though. His shot selection was often poor and it let to a number of turnovers. He needs to learn to slow down and play more under control. He certainly has some talent though.


Dylan Edger (2010, 6-6 PF)
This sophomore showed some ability to play inside and outside. He scored on a lay-up with a foul around the rim. He also hit a very difficult off balance 17 foot jumper. Dylan battled on the boards too. Like many young big men, he does need to get stronger though. He certainly has potential though.
