Mark Alstork, SG, Thurgood Marshall – Alstork had it working in a big way as his team battled to a good win over Evansville Bosse. He used his athleticism to score going to the rim and in transition. Add in that he made some mid-range jumpers and it was an excellent evening for Alstork who was one of the best players on the floor during the entire day.
Perry Fairrow, SG, Evansville Bosse – He gets overshadowed at times, but Fairrow has been on a roll all year, and his 34 point effort was the best of the day. He scored mostly going to the rim, but then Fairrow also hit some deep jumpers and got to the foul line. Add in that Fairrow at 6-foot-1 was a factor on the glass recording double figure rebounds. Fairrow needs to tighten up his handle some in traffic, but it was an excellent showing for him.
Jaquan Lyle, PG, Evansville Bosse – One of the best passers, if not the best, in the class, Lyle put that on display. He just sees things that almost no one else in the high school game does. Unfortunately for Lyle his jumper was off all game long, and he struggled at times with the pace of the game. Still there is so much Lyle can do and the way he makes others better and gets them easy shots is very impressive.
Ernie Duncan, PG, Evansville Harrison – A good athlete who can get to the rim and make shots from deep, Duncan was a scoring machine for Harrison. Whenever his team needed a big shot either Duncan took it and made or it dished to a teammate for a score. Duncan isn’t the quickest kid in America and can struggle to get loose without a ball screen, but he has a good understanding of how to play and has a flair for the dramatic.
Juan Ford, SG, Huber Heights Wayne – The Warriors are a young squad so Ford is one of their older players, and he responded with a strong effort. A powerfully built guard, Ford can score from deep or by getting to the rim. He needs to continue to be more consistent and stay focused during the game on the defensive end, but there is no doubt he has an ability to score the basketball.
Stanley Duncan and Everette Duncan, PF, Evansville Harrison – The two Duncan twins each were huge in getting the win for their team. Both of them are long and lean and not the greatest rebounders, but each has no conscious when it comes to taking a shot, and their strokes are pure. Both Stanley and Everette were huge down the stretch and showed they don’t need much time to get off a three, and when their feet are set usually it goes in.
D’Mitrik Trice, PG, Huber Heights Wayne – Early on Trice was excellent. He was hitting shots and made a few nice passes. Right now he looks most comfortable shooting off of the catch, but he does have a nice handle and can create some for others. Shot selection will be key for Trice in his development as he is a solid athlete and has a nice looking stroke.
Xerius Williams, SF/PF, Huber Heights Wayne – This is someone with loads of potential. Williams looked comfortable shooting threes and got a few perimeter jumpers to fall, and at 6-foot-6 with long arms also was a capable rebounder and show athleticism down low. As he fills out and gets stronger Williams will get even better, and right now he is already flashing major potential.
Derrick Daniels, PF, Thurgood Marshall – This is a freshman worth really tracking. Daniels is a big time athlete at 6-foot-7 and finishes very well around the rim. Also he scored a few times on hook shots, and seemingly has a motor that doesn’t quit. Daniels needs to get more refined as he will make mistakes on simple plays, but still he has the frame, length, athleticism, and touch to be someone who really explodes as he gets older and stronger.
