Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase 2010 Flashback: Class 2015 Top Combo Guards

Lamar Kimble Starred At The Super Showcase

The Basketball Spotlight Super Showcase will return August 13th so Basketball Spotlight will like to take a look back at the players that shined last summer. Do you have the game to compete against these type of players? We will see August 13th.

Super Showcase Top Combo Guards (Class 2015)

Lamar Kimble (Philadelphia, PA)- Kimble was just too difficult to contain at this event. He can easily muscle his way to the lane but he enjoys showing off his dribble moves. First, he will hit you with the crossover before finishing at the cup. Then he would drive and pull up mid dribble for a jumper. He just has too many moves in his arsenal for defenders this age.

Blair Howard (Hartford, CT)- Howard roasted the defense even pumping in 30 points one contest. The smooth scoring will shake the boots off of opponents. He has good range and the ability to finish from anywhere. He reminds me a little of Anthony Jernigan who was another fine guard from Connecticut.

Marcus Adkinson (Annandale, VA)- Adkinson is another guard with scoring prowess and the ability to play lockdown defense. He has some shiftiness in his game and I like his calm demeanor when running the show. I see him moving over the PG spot full time on the high school level.

Darrick Boyd (Springfield, MA)- Boyd brought down that aggression that caught my eye in Massachusetts. No one in the building could stop this kid from getting to the rim and he took advantage of this asset. I like the range on his shot and his ability to get a clean look off the bounce.

Temple Gibbs (Scotch Plains, NJ)- Gibbs arrived a little late but jumped right into the action especially on defense. His lateral movement has improved as he used his foot speed to strip a couple of ball handlers. I also see him moving to the point guard spot and controlling the tempo like his older brother Sterling.

Trey Lowe (Ewing, NJ)- Lowe did his thing in the scoring column. He nailed the outside shot and got out on the break for transitional buckets. Lowe still looks like a baby in the face so a serious grow spurt will be coming soon. This will determine if he goes over to the point or remain a scoring guard.
