Top Performers

Rakym Felder Guard (New Heights)- Felder battled foul trouble and found a hard time finding his rhythm in the first half. In the second stanza he woke up and went to work. His long shots started falling and he scored with ease in transition. He is very capable of pumping in a big amount of points very quickly.

Terrell Turner Forward (New Heights)- Turner did some scoring in the paint but ran into a little trouble by keeping the rock to low during his post moves. He’s still very young so once he gets stronger he will be able to keep the ball high when maneuvering on the blocks.

Corey Grant Guard (New Heights)- Grant has been a solid point for NH for some time. The southpaw knows how to squirt into the lane and spoon feed his teammates at the rim. His passes are crisp and precise.

Adam Perry Guard (LD Rebels)- Perry was a bright spot for the Rebels. He has improved his quickness and demonstrated that by breezing pass defenders on his way to the tin. He also showed good body control after absorbing contact. He’s turning into an impact player.

Marquise Bell Forward (LD Rebels)- Bell is an athlete that showed some promise when finishing off plays. He runs the floor well and did a nice job on the glass. I need to see a little more ball handling skills to get a better read on him.

Noel King Forward (LD Rebels)- King is also a good athlete. He needs a little more playing time to develop his basketball skills and IQ. He will need to be an intimidating force inside for this team to be successful.
