Nike Challenge Camp Day 2: Guards "R" Us (Class 2017)

Remy Martin Was Ultra Smooth In California

Basketball Spotlight was on hand again for Day 2 of the Nike Challenge Camp in Los Angeles, California. Here’s a look at some of the Baby Ballers that went hard to close out this event.

Day 2 Top Performers (Class Of 2017)

Remy Martin Guard (Burbank, CA)- Martin capped off a brilliant weekend with a dazzling performance during the All Star Game. He caught fire during the second half and drained about 4 treys in a row. Prior to the All Star Game he tormented the opposition by scoring every way possible. He dominated the camp on this age level.

Damon Harge Guard (Mountain House, CA)- Harge showed the quickness that makes him special at this young age. His ability to handle the ball gracefully with either hand dazzled the crowd and confused most defenders on this level. This youngster will become even better as he matures.

Kihei Clark Guard (Resada, CA)- Clark also was a crowd pleaser as he penetrated down the throat of the defense. This young spark plug plays the game with good flair and supreme confidence. I will be checking for him during the season especially when he hits the 12U Nationals in Virginia.

Lamelo Ball Guard (Chino Hills, CA)- This youngster caught my eye by banging home deep treys using a Jamal Wilkes type release. He uses this release because it allows him to shoot from deep but as he gets older and stronger I imagine he will move to a more traditional shot.

Bryce Zephir Guard (Carson City)- Bryce was a blur pushing the rock especially in the open floor. He dashed down the lane and made things happen. He’s a fierce competitor as he demonstrated by going so hard on the defensive end.

Myles Franklin Guard (Brea, CA)- Franklin has good size for a guard. He loves showing off his ball handling skills and throwing no look passes. I’m interested to see how he develops in terms of height and game. I see a little something there.

Troy Hall Guard (Victorville, CA)- Hall was another compact guard with a good skill level. He looked great in transition while displaying his pass first mentality. This cleaver ball handler will be one to watch in the upcoming years.

Tane Shedgewick Guard(Platenia, CA)- Tane is a spot shooter that moves well without the rock. If you leave him open and he sets his feet you can count it in the books. He's a very heady player.

Basketball Spotlight will be bringing more profiles, analysis and rankings from the Nike Challenge Camp which is turning into the premier West Coast Event.
