Garden State Showdown Top Performers
Reggie James Guard (Trenton, NJ)- James is slated as the top rising frosh in Mercer County and he didn’t disappoint. He excels in transition and in scoring opportunities. He has the body of a high school sophomore right now and the scoring mentality to go with it. A super steal and buzzer beater by Jones is the reason he didn’t leave with the MVP honors.Trenton Catholic is the cream of the crop in Mercer County and now they have added a real good one.
Donovan Ryland Guard (Hamilton, NJ)- A few of the national scouts appreciated the toughness of this guard. Ryland is no non sense especially when he’s running the show. He’s not into the show time type of game but instead lets the substance of his game speak. I like how he was getting into the teeth of the defense and making things happen.
