Standouts

5’10 2022 Will Jenkins (EA) ( 12 pts)- The floor general for EA Prep really settled things when the game got chaotic, Jenkins was good in transition and attacked the rim aggressively. Defensively he harassed opposing ball handlers and helped disrupt the oppositions offensive flow.

6’0 2022 Zy Brown (EA) (11 pts) – Another crucial part to this backcourt, Brown was another dedicated slasher, who took advantage of whatever the defense gave. Brown also flashed the three point range, which provided some much needed spacing for this group.

6’3 2022 Heston Foster (19 pts) (Carolina Ballin)- Foster was the best player on the floor for the entire first half in this contest. At 6’3 Foster is a knockdown shooter, he also has good size at 6’3 and he understands how to utilize the size on the block. Foster was also extremely active on the boards for his side.
