The CT Jr. Phenom Camp concluded on Sunday and Basketball Spotlight was there with the coverage. Here’s a look at some of the Class of 2017 top performers on the final day.
CT Jr. Phenom Top Performers Day 2 (Class 2017)
Lucas Hudson Guard (Allentown, PA)- I mean just watching Hudson play makes you believe this youngster is a student of the game. He’s small in stature but can run a team like a true giant. He’s very vocal and understands where everyone on the floor belongs. In 3 years he will make some high school coach very happy while running their team.
Chase Lewis Guard (Ewing, NJ)- Chase spent most of his day leaking out on the break for easy buckets. He has good speed in transition and made sure he leaned his body into shot blockers before finishing.
David Kachelries Guard (Allentown, PA)- David was one the smartest players at this event. His quick and cleaver handle made way for his fluid pull up jumper. This kid gets anywhere he wants on the floor and is also capable of being a dime dropper. He was one of the top guards in attendance.
Matthew Kachelries Guard (Allentown, PA)- Matthew had his time to shine operating the Red Team. He also plays with good passion while possessing the poise and craftiness of a mature floor general. He will hurt your heart with a deep shot if he’s left open.
Ronald Gaskins Forward (Mount Holly, NJ)- Gaskins was able to bang with the bigger forwards inside. He’s a little undersized for his position but uses his quickness and effort to make an impact. We will be keeping an eye on him this season.
Endel Sanchez Guard (E. Hartford, CT)- Sanchez's size allows him to get a clean from the perimeter most of the time. He usually operates as a spot up shooter but in this event he was a little more aggressive driving to the cup. In the end his ratchet is his best weapon.
Keonte Lucas Guard (Hartford, CT)- Few players went hard on the defensive end but Lucas was the exception. He dove for loose balls and played the passing lanes well. I also like how he gets under ball handlers and uses his strength to dictate where they go on the floor.
