The South Team got the win in this high scoring affair and here are their top performers from the 7th Annual J.E.M. All Star Classic.
South Top Performers
Lance Ware Forward (Edgewater, NJ) – This 6’8 athletic forward was the MVP for the winning South team tallying 29 points. I saw Ware earlier this year in one of our tournaments and you can tell he has been working to improve his game because it was on full display. He plays hard and has a high motor. He scored dunking everything, rebounded, and blocked shots. Possibly the top prospect in the region and I believe he will be an impact player when he enters high school.
Lynn Greer III Guard (Marlton, NJ) – Greer is an athletic combo guard that definitely has the feel and IQ that can transition fully to the PG position. He has range out to the 3pt line and showed great playmaking ability attacking the basket and either finishing himself or dropping a dime to one of his teammates. He finished with 17 points. When all said and done I can see Greer being the top PG in the region.
Tyler Brelsford Guard (Ellicott City, MD) – Tyler is a true PG with a high IQ that understands how to balance scoring and facilitating. Known as one of the better long range shooters in the region, his 3 point shot was off so he went to his mid-range and floater game. He finished with 13 points and also racked up close to double digit assists getting his teammates involved. He hit a mid-range jumper to seal the victory for the South.
Terrance Williams Forward (Clinton, MD) – Williams has been a mainstay on the Spotlight circuit for years and this year he was one of the top players on the #1 team in the country. Big Smoove understands how to finish over and around longer more athletic players by using pump fakes and great footwork. You can tell he has been working on his perimeter skills as he looks more comfortable handling the ball and shooting the mid to long range jump shot. He finished with a game high 31 points for the winners.
E.J. Evans Guard (Willingboro, NJ) – Evans is an aggressive wing guard that is wired to score and can do it from all three levels. He is at his best attacking the basket and in transition. At 6’5 he has great size already for the position. He finished with 13 points. I believe that Evans will be a name that will continue to rise as he enters high school.
Mikah Johnson, Jr. Guard (Bound Brook, NJ) – Johnson is a long wing guard that is patient and lets the game come to him. He has the ability to be a lock down defender being able to guard the 3 perimeter positions. Mikah plays hard and rebounds well for his position. He finished with 10 points.
