DC Assault Classic Day 2 Top Performers: Forwards

Harry Giles Scored 26 Points In Their Win Against Team Battle.

Day 2 from the DC Assault Classic had some serious talent on display. We decided to breakdown the top performers by position. We will begin with the forwards. Here are the top forwards from Day 2.

Top Forwards Day 2

Harry Giles (Team Felton)- I saw some potential in Giles during the first contest today but he really showed his goods during their win against Team Battle. The lanky wing forward used his quickness and explosiveness to glide to the rim for buckets. He even gave us a taste of his ball handling by crossing defenders in the open floor. Right now he’s a post forward but he will be on the wing shortly.

Darius Gillon (Team Battle)- Gillon had a good day on the offensive end. He has improved his ball handling and even made a few good decisions passing the pill. On the defensive end he needs to assert himself a little by moving his feet and boxing out the opposition.

Terrell Turner (New Heights)- Turner continues to show improvement in his game. He runs the floor better and showed a nice turn around shot. He hit the boards hard and has good touch around the cup. He’s one of the most improved players this season.

Jakeem Sturgis (New Heights)- Sturgis went very hard against DC Assault. He played the top of the press and caused several turnovers. Jakeem is also beginning to handle the ball a little more while pushing the rock up the floor. He has some serious explosion when attacking the tin.

Mike Ganowski (Fairfax Stars)- Mike gave Team Battle problems in their near upset. His face up game and ability to put the ball on the floor gave him a chance to score in traffic. I also like the toughness he showed down the stretch of the game.
