Clash For The Cup 6th Grade Top Performers Part 4
Brandon Stores Forward (NY Gauchos) – Stores is a strong power forward that we eventually see moving to the perimeter as he gets older. He is more of a straight line driver that keeps the ball high and finishes through contact. He rebounds at a high level and he is all over the floor on both ends. Every play we watches it seemed Brandon was in it. He has 19 points in the game we watched converting 7 free throws.
Tai Turnage Guard (NY Gauchos) – At this day and age you needs ball handlers and 3 point shooters. Turnage is just that for his team. He is smart when he has the ball in his hands knowing when to shoot or pass. He has 10 points in the game we watched including 2 trey balls.
Trevon Lewis Forward (NY Gauchos) – Lewis is a long wing that we see having a bright future. He runs the floor and finishes at the rim. He is at his best attacking the rim in the half court or in transition. He can guard multiple positions on the defensive end. As his offensive package matures he will be a hard player to defend in the years to come. He tallied 10 markers in the game we watched.
Peyton Miller Guard (NY Gauchos) – Peyton is a guard with flair. He has nifty handles and he can play on or off the ball. Miller can shoot, dribble, and pass which makes him hard to guard. On the defensive end he is a gritty defender.
Richard Rosa Guard (KSK) – Rosa is a big Point Guard that pushes the tempo of the game. He knows how to drive and kick to his open shooters and is always controlling the pace of the game. Richard is an elite distributor that also can attack the rim and knock down the 3 ball. The other thing we really like is he digs in and defends on the other end. He finished with 16 points in the game we saw converting all 5 of his free throws.
Jordan Ghee Guard (KSK) – Ghee is a combo guard with nice size. He has a nice mid-range jumper and has range out to the 3 point line. Jordan can also pass the ball really well as we saw him deliver a nice lead pass leading to an easy bucket. He also rebounds well which allows him to lead the break and get his team from defense to offense quicker.
Mekhi Ragland Forward (KSK) – Mekhi is a big man with touch. He has long arms and is very strong at the 6th grade age group. He rebounds at a high rate and understands how to keep the ball high to keep away from the smaller defenders. He can finish around the rim at a high percentage.
Luke Schorr Guard (KSK) – In today’s game of basketball any team that wants to be successful and win on a consistent basis needs at least one 3 point sniper on their team. Luke is that guy for his squad knocking down 4 threes in the game we watched finishing with a total of 16 points.
