Top Performers

Kaison Randolph Guard (Team NJ ABC)- It was another day at the office for Randolph. The versatile forward did his usual damage near the cup by attacking from the foul line area. In transition he showed promise handling the pill even displaying a swift crossover. I still want to see him shoot a few outside shots though. I think it will make his game even better.

Wade Baldwin Guard (Team NJ ABC)- Baldwin played big today. He hit the outside and made some tough runners in the lane. His confidence seems to be back full throttle this year. If so expect some high scoring games from this combo guard.

Shaquan Worthy Guard (Team NJ ABC)- Once again when he entered the game things took off. Worthy paced the game by pushing the rock like a blur and hitting teammates with hot dishes. He finished with about 7 assists and would have dropped about 5 more if his teammates were converting.

Conrad Chambers Guard (Team Nelson)- Chambers scored the ball well in both games. He can get to the hole when he wants and explodes in transition. He does need to work on his rotation on his outside shot. It has a knuckle ball type spin right now.

Mahir Johnson Guard (Team Nelson)- Johnson also hit big in both games. Their depleted roster caused Johnson to take much of the scoring load. He hit the outside shot and did work on the baseline. He showed some toughness today.

Terrell Sturdivant Forward (Team Nelson)- In Game 1 Terrell was very dominant against Team MVP. He suffered a hand injury that hampered him against Team NJ ABC. In that contest he wasn’t involved much on either end of the floor.
