Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase Recap: Class 2015 Top Wing Guards

Ronshad Allen-Shabazz Put Up Numbers At The Super Showcase

The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase concluded on Saturday. We gave you some top performers from the rising 7th Grade class, now it’s time to look into the Class of 2015. Now here’s a look at the top wing guards from this event.

Super Showcase Top Wing Guards (Class 2015)

Ronshad Allen-Shabazz (Raleigh, NC)- Allen was a scoring machine for most of this event. The lefty can fill it up going coast to coast or dominate a half court set. His size on the perimeter makes him a difficult match up and allows him to look over defenders for shots or passes. He seems to be playing his natural position at this point in his young career. He reminds me of a young Kareem Rush.

Jason Remy (Fairfax Station, VA)- Remy is a smooth stroking wing guard. He has good range and size for his position. Jason can be used has a scorer but also can snatch a few boards during the game. Like most players this age he needs to get stronger and develop his ball handling.

Kobe Ancrum (Norwalk, CT)- Kobe is a 6’0 guard who plays well with the ball in his hands. He constantly beat defenders off the bounce and stretched out for buckets. On defense he’s very quick and capable of hitting the glass. It looks like Connecticut has another fine guard in Ancrum.

James Wright (Trenton, NJ)- Wright is headed to St. Patrick Academy but he did make a stop at the showcase. He did a good job of driving down the lane and finishing in traffic. He must get a little more confidence in his outside shot because on the next level defenses will begin to back off.

Joshua Malone (Springfield, MA)- Malone has grown a lot since I saw him in Massachusetts. He uses his added mass to bully past defenders but he still has the feathery touch that caught my attention in Springfield. He was a beast in transition and has some wicked dribble moves.

Akeem King (Philadelphia, PA)- King has the size of a wing guard but he surveys the court like a floor general. He picked his spots to attack and also got his teammates involved. I didn’t really get to notice him that much during the AAU season but he made sure I left the showcase knowing his name.
