DC Assault Classic Day 2 Top Performers: Scoring Guards

Jared Rivers Came Up Big Against DC Assault.

Day 2 from the DC Assault Classic had some serious talent on display. We decided to breakdown the top performers by position. Next we will look at the top scoring guards from Day 2.

Top Scoring Guards Day 2

Jared Rivers (New Heights)- Rivers had a great showing against New Heights. The combo guard shot the ball well and attacked the rim in transition. He stepped up big when Rakym Felder went down with an injury. The stage was huge and he shined by dropping 20 points (2 treys).

Brandon Randolph (Team Battle)- The first two games Randolph shined by scoring with in the offense. He slashed to the hole and finished because of his relentless style. He also let a few go from the 3 point range with good accuracy. He seems to have settled in good with this squad.

Tyus Battle (Team Battle)- Battle came up big against Fairfax Stars down the stretch. He stepped to the charity stripe and nailed free throws to give his team the win. Other than that he scored well in transition and hit a couple of long treys. He did get into a little trouble trying to force drives against the zone defense.

Travis Smith (Norfolk Wildcats)- Smith’s squad took a bad loss but I was impressed with his play. He made a few things happen off the dribble and played hard until the final buzzer. He was a bright spot for this team.

Ako Adams (Dc Assault Gorham)- Adams can drained the trey ball and score with in the offense. He tried to step up against New Heights when Alani Moore went down with an injury. This southpaw shows good promise at times.

Davonte Carter (New Generation)- Carter was up to his usual tricks. He dropped 26 points in one of his games. He’s a combo guard with a scorer’s mentality and the ability to create. This kid knows how to create his own shot.
