Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase Recap: Class 2016 Top Point Guards

Alani "Showtime" Moore Shined In His Spotlight Debut.

The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase wrapped up yesterday and it was a dandy. We will be continuing our Class of 2016 coverage with a look at the top point guards.

Super Showcase Top Point Guards (Class 2016)

Alani Moore (Germantown, MD)- Moore showed why he has the nickname “Showtime”. He cut through defenses like a hot knife through butter. He finished at the tin with authority and showed great body control. Alani also was a bandit on defense while plucking several guards for their cookies. No one can deny his play making ability.

NyRhique Smith (Neptune, NJ)- “La Smoove” was just that at the showcase. He pushed the rock and made some good passes. In his game against Louisville he caught fire by nailing 6 treys on his way to 23 markers. His style of play reminds me a little of Tyreke Evans, we are not calling him the next Reke but the way they attack are similar.

Anthony Cowan (Bowie, MD)- Mr. Cowan did his usual damage. His outside shot wasn’t falling as often but his ability to get into the lane is second to none. He attacks the defense and hounds ball handlers like a pit bull. He has a big time future ahead of him.

Vaughn Covington (Sicklerville, NJ)- Covington’s long arms allows him to control a game like Rondo. In transition he gets into the lane in a hurry then stretches out for tough finishes. Once he gets his outside shot a little more consistent he will be much more of a threat.

Tony Carr (Philadelphia, PA)- Carr handled the big stage very well. His cool demeanor showed when running the team and scoring in the lane. He’s a steady ball handler and serious defender. He’s definitely a throwback Philly guard.

KeAndre Fair (Hartford, CT)- Fair court vision is sick. He threw passes from every angle and hit teammates in stride. He’s a strong floor general with a lot of flavor and substance to his game. Make sure your ankles are taped when guarding Fair.

Kobe Gantz (Lancaster, PA)- Gantz showed well in his Spotlight debut. He’s crafty ball handler with a natural feel for the game. He got past defenders with ease and finished strong around the rim.
