Funsport Junior Pros Recap: Briscoe Powers Team Scan

Isaiah Briscoe Shined Bright

Isaiah Briscoe scored 16 points and Austrian Robinson hit the glass hard as Team Scan (NY) defeated Elite NYC 49-33 at the Funsport Jr. Pros held in Brooklyn, NY. Jermaine Bishop found the hot hand for Elite NYC in the loss.

Top Performers

Isaiah Briscoe Guard (Team Scan)- It’s been a long while since I watched Briscoe rock and all I can say is Wow! This youngster has worked hard to transform his body and his game seems to have paid dividends. Isaiah got anywhere he wanted on the floor very easy and operated very fluid in traffic. He got up high on his pull up and had the explosiveness to drive past smaller guards. He always had a high basketball IQ but now his frame allows him to translate it on the floor. He has to be mentioned as one of the top guards in the region. Keep working young man!

Nassir Barrino Guard (Team Scan)- It was a typical day for Barrino. Showing cat quick moves and a sweet pull up his game is very poised and polished. He’s learning how to make moves without over dribbling the pill. I like how his game is rounding off.

Austrian Robinson Forward (Team Scan)- Robinson didn’t score much (6 pts) but he made it up on the glass (16 caroms). He was a defensive force inside by clogging the lane and blocking shots. I also like his motor and willingness to play both ends of the floor.

Jermaine Bishop Guard (Elite NYC)- Bishop sure can stroke it. He found his target on several occasions around arc. He also showed he can attack a little off the bounce.
