Our MVP: CJ Owens Guard (Coderite Electric)- We give Owens the nod for the MVP of the game because he brought it from the outset. The floor general used his quickness and low center of gravity to dominate the competition. He made us love his drive, draw and dish game while also finishing in traffic around shot blockers. Owens has a natural knack of running the point which should take him far in this game.
Hashon Cannon Guard (Coderite Electric)- Cannon name is on the rise in the Mercer County region. This youngster’s versatility stands out. He can grab a rebound and push the rock full distance before creating a play or finishing himself. He has the swag and game to translate to the next level.
Jordan Dilliard Guard (Coderite Electric)- Dilliard came off the bench and gave the champions a big punch. He scored after driving to the cup while using a feathery touch off the glass. He used his toughness to fight off defenders and battle in the lane.
Andre Johnson Guard (Coderite Electric)- Johnson didn’t score a lot but showed me some promise with his athleticism and potential. He can run the floor like a deer and has some natural quickness that will helped him make an impact. Don’t be surprised if he is a name to remember in a couple of years.
Noah Johnson Guard (PBIC)- Johnson has appeared on our site before and today he did his usual damage. He got into the lane when he wanted and used a short floater or mid-range pull up to convert. He’s the typical tough Trenton point guard that knows how to score.
Samir Robinson Guard (PBIC)- Robinson caught our eye because I like his size and the form on his outside shot. I can see what he wanted to do off the bounce but right now he lacks the strength to finish at times. But beware because he in little time he might surpass his peers.
Ceasar Royster Guard (PBIC)- This guard’s hesitation and misdirection skills were on full display. He used his craftiness to get pass defenders and kiss the rock off the glass. He also has a mean floater and the knack of putting the rock in the bucket.
