DC Assault Classic Day 3 Top Performers

Trey Carter (Tidewater Wildcats)

The final day of the DC Assault Classic was on fire. The top teams bumped heads and here’s a look at the players that really impressed us.

Day 3 Top Performers

Trey Carver Forward (Tidewater Wildcats)- Carver was a total beast in the semifinals against DC Assault. He’s a wide body and extremely athletic in the paint. He got good post position and punished the host team in the paint.

Anthony Williams Guard (Tidewater Wildcats)- Williams is another kid that caught my eye. He has good size for his positions and can put the rock on the floor. His best days of basketball are definitely ahead of him. You will be hearing his name a lot in the future.

Mike Buckland Guard (Team Felton)- Buckland had another good day helping his team into the Final Four. He demands attention with his size, court vision and ability to score. It’s hard to believe he was a spot up shooter a year ago.

Harry Giles Forward (Team Felton)- Giles also is an impact player that has loads of potential. He runs the floor like a deer and is able to make plays on this level. He reminds of Mike Gilchrist even though Gilchrist was a little taller at this stage. Keep an eye out for him.

Tyus Battle Guard (Team Battle)- Tyus played good in the quarters and semifinals. He had the outside shot falling and was able to create space off the dribble. Once he gets his mid range pull up falling on a regular basis he will be even better.

Keith Washington Guard (Team Battle)- Washington gave TB a boost on both ends of the floor. Offensively he took over the point guard duties and did damage against Team Felton in the semifinals. On the defensive end he did a great job against Rakym Felder and Mike Bucklin.

Rakym Felder Guard (New Heights)- Felder went hard against TB in the quarterfinals while battling injuries. He’s so quick and powerful with the rock that he appears unstoppable at times on this level. Once he gets it going he can put together buckets quickly.

Anthony Cowan Guard (DC Assault)- Cowan left everything on the floor in their Final Four loss to Tidewater. He helped his team overcome a huge deficit with strong dribble drives and tough finishes. When things got real he stepped up his play.
