Miller School (VA) vs Christchurch (VA)
Michael Gbinije, a 6'6 170lb 2011 High Major- Guard, is a very good athlete with many weapons in his arsenal. This big and strong guard can mix in a pull up jumper off the bounce and finishes well high above the rim.
Mychal Parker, a 6'7 2010 High Major SF, had one of his best games over the last year watching him. He has been working on his shot and that aspect of his game showed some head way. Parker has improved his handle as well and will have the chance to move to the two guard spot once consistency in his jump shot sets in. His intensity on the court drastically improved in the half we saw.
Hippolyte Tsafack, a 6'8 2010 Mid Major + PF, is a really long and powerful athlete with a solid frame. Tsafack is a High Major athlete that talks on D and has a knack for scoring around the rim. Mark down 18 points, 11 rebounds and a MVP trophy on 9-11 shooting. Bryce Kofane, a 6'8 2010 F, is a good leaper that is quick off his feet and is another solid D1 prospect.
Norfolk Christian (VA) vs. Henrico High School (VA)
Norfolk Christian (VA)
James Mcadoo, a 6'8 205lb High Major 2011 PF, is a ultra long athlete who can handle the ball and finish well in the paint. Mcadoo showed the ability to knock down the mid range jumper. His length and athleticism make him a good shot blocker as well as a proficient rebounder. 21 points and 10 rebounds for the talented big fella.
Henrico High School (VA)
Trey Davis, a 6'4 2011 PG, is a talented D1 shooter who can handle the ball. Davis had an off night, going 3-12.
Atlantic Shores (VA) vs Deep Run (VA)
Andre Dawkins, a 6'4 190lb 2010 Duke Commit, is a big SG with very good athleticism. Dawkins has solid elevation on his shot and a quick release. Dawkins has all the physical tools to be successful at the Highest level.
Steven Pledger, a 6'4 190lb 2009 Oklahoma signee, is another big SG with solid athleticism to go along with a deadly 3 point game. While were speaking of deadly 3 point games; enter Brandon Brick. Brick, a 5'11 2010 PG, needed ice for his right shoulder after his stellar performance. 35 points on 10-14 shooting from behind the arc does not hurt a kid's recruitment in a setting as this. Started him off as a Low Major prospect but as the game wore on he became a solid mid level player with a good chance to go much higher. Range on his 3 point shot does not remain an issue.
Deep Run (VA)
Antone Exum, a 6'1 2009 Combo Guard, is a true stat stuffer. 31 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals. If he ditched his verbal commitment to Virginia Tech and decided to play basketball, a mid level school would not be out of the question. Exum has a good frame that draws a lot of contact getting him to the line as good as anyone. He tends to get too deep into the teeth of the defense which demonstrates his weakness; a pull up or floater. He is a good outside shooter.
Dematha (MD) vs John Marshall (VA)
Naji Hibbert, a 6'5 180lb 2009 Texas A&M signee, is a good athlete with a solid stroke from deep. He showed the ability to score in many different ways this game. Victor Oladipo is a High Major guard who gets to the lane well and is a really good athlete. Quinn Cook is a talented and very unselfish 2011 PG. Cook is a High Major- PG who passes the ball well and showed a good pull up while playing the part of a seemingly more mature point man. Mikael Hopkins has continued to improve since seeing him last March. Hopkins is a 6'8 2011 C who needs to add much weight but his big length allows him to block a lot of shots as well as gather any rebound in his area. Hopkins also possesses soft hands. Hopkins is a borderline High Major player at the time but should work his way into that elite status.
Travis McKie, a 6'7 2010 High Major SF, is a strong and athletic player who can take his man off the dribble at will and score. 21 points and 12 rebounds.
Courtland vs Benedictine
Josh Hairston, 6'8 2010 Duke Commit, is a really long athlete with a good body. Hairston can finish with contact, has proficient handles for a big, and is a good rebounder. Hairston finished with 25 points and 12 rebounds.
Darien Brothers, a 6'3 2009 Richmond signee, is a steal. Brothers is a talented guard who can get it done from any region on the court. Brothers is an excellent defender who finished with 26 points, 7 rebounds and 5 steals. Erik Moody is a 2011 D1 guard who is a high percentage shooter. Moody had 17 points and 4 assists. We look forward to monitoring his progress.
