AGame Super Shootout Day 2: Top Performers Part 1

Juwan Gooding (Albany Dream Team)

The AGame Super Shootout heated up for Day 2. Once again we had some top players performing in the building. Here’s our first report of the top players on Day 2.

Top Performers Day 2

13U Division

Juwan Gooding Guard (Albany Dream Team)- Gooding put in serious work against Abyssinian Church. He pumped in 17 points, added double digit rebounds and would have finished with double digit assist if his teammates handled his passes better. He definitely looked like the best player on the floor today.

Najee Ward Guard (Albany Dream Team)- Ward got things going early for ADT. He converted on a few tough shots when penetrating the lane. In transition he’s truly a problem especially when the defender is back peddling. He knows how to get under the shot blocker while getting his shot off.

Jaquan Hickman Guard (Abyssinian Church)- Hickman showed me he can go against a better brand. He was on attack against ADT before suffering a bad ankle sprain. I did see that he needs to work on his outside shot particularly his release and arc.

14U Division

Marquis Chandler Guard (Albany Dream Team)- Chandler gave Team Scan the business. He got to the cup at will and used his strength to muscle baskets. The Bronx squad had no one to stay in front of this guard he was a like a freight train when attacking. On the next level he will need to improve his range and technique on his outside shot.

Conrad Chambers Guard (Team Scan)- For the most part offensively he did damage. His stop and go confuses most defenders and he usually explodes before he finishes. He should be a fine guard once he reaches the high school level.

Cheddi Mosley Guard (Team Scan)- Mosley is a serious trey ball threat and he shoots it with a load of confidence. He tickled the twine several times while I was watching. He fits in well with the bunch.
