Top Performers

Lamar Kimble Guard (Team Final)- Kimble used his strength to cause problems on both ends of the floor. He bullied his way past defenders for some strong finishes and plucked ball handlers every chance he got. In the second half he spent a lot of time at the charity stripe because of his attacking style.

Tim Delaney Forward (Team Final)- Delaney continues to improve and he gave TF some big minutes playing alongside Wilkerson. He hit the face up jumper from the foul line area and feed the post well. His confidence is on another level right now and he needs to keep up this type of play if TF hopes to make a national title run.

Trevaughn Wilkerson Forward (Team Final)- Wilkerson made his presence felt on the defensive end. He had about 10 blocks and double digits rebounds. He made Horace Spencer work extremely hard to get off offensive. He does a good job of clogging up the lane.

Troy Smith Guard (Philly Aztecs)- Smith brought his game today. He stayed in attack mode and made TF pay by scoring in traffic. In transition his strength made it difficult for the defenders to slow him down. I also got a chance to check out his ball handling and it’s better than I originally thought.

Horace Spencer Forward (Philly Aztecs)- Spencer gave Wilkerson a tough time in the paint also. His length proved well on the glass and in the shot altering category. This kid is oozing with potential but I do think he should demand the rock a little more on the offensive end.

Devin Liggeons Guard (Philly Aztecs)- Liggeons also showed me an added piece to his game. He dropped a few dimes in transition and while driving down the lane. He looked very comfortable handling the rock and making decisions. Today he proved to be more than just scorer.
