Game Recap: Legacy Charter vs. Comenius
Legacy Charter 74
It was a tight battle and certainly a feisty one as well to start the game, as both teams didn’t back down from the challenge. Legacy Charter held the advantage size wise but the outside shot fell early for Comenius. However, transition buckets and points in the paint started to take over, as Legacy Charter started to pull away in the second quarter and much of the second half.
2019 6’7 Jayln McCreary
McCreary is a very interesting player to watch on the floor because he brings such versatility, along with size to play several positions. He started early down low but then took over at point guard. In the first quarter, he looked to get his teammates involved but started to display his ability to score the basketball in the second quarter and second half. Even though he struggled finding the hole at times, the talent is there that he can score in transition and worked best when putting the ball on the floor. He can play so many positions with his outside jumper and his ability to handle the basketball. McCreary’s recruitment should start picking up even more this season. Stats: 15 points, 7 rebounds
2019 6’11 Rodney Howard (Ole Miss Commit)
It has been great to see how Howard has developed into a true lost post presence over the years. He is a big man with fight in him, moving very well on his feet and has a soft touch/ high arcing shot that allows him to finish. What you love about his game is that he really understands how to seal defenders in the paint and make himself big. His hands are always up, can take one dribble and power his way to the rim, putting a few defenders on posters in the win. He understands how to use his size and he should only continue to develop his offensive game at the next level. He is a highly underrated big in the country.Stats: 15 points, 7 rebounds
2019 6’7 Chase Claxton (Winthrop Commit)
Claxton is a lengthy small forward type prospect that uses his wingspan and length to his advantage. He can make plays with his wingspan that allows him to finish around the rim, as well as his jumper. He is very springy on the floor and displayed his ability to get to the line. In the end, he finished with a double-double and is a prospect that can quietly get it done on both ends. Stats: 15 points, 11 rebounds
2020 6’2 Kaleb Mack
Mack’s night was short but he showed many intangibles programs would like on the floor. He is a grinding, tough floor general. He has very good vision on the court, with his head and eyes always up. On the offensive end, Mack was very good putting the ball on the floor, getting his defender on his side, and looking to make plays scoring, as well as dish it out. He also is an “in your shorts” type of defender that doesn’t back down from anyone.
2019 6’11 Dearon Tucker
Tucker is a true power forward prospect that shined in the second half. He may not be the most athletic low post player but he is active on the boards. He was able to create second-chance points and used a nice jump hook to score in the paint.
Notes: Keep an eye on 2021 Kameron Little, a 6’4 strong guard that is very active and showed his ability to contribute scoring wise while on the floor.
2019 Ja’Quan Hemphill
He is a guard with fight and is not afraid to be the offensive production for this team at times. He has that quick trigger and quick twitch that allows him to get his shot off. He knocked down a few three’s and he is a very confident guard. Loved his grit on the floor on both sides of the ball. Stats: 14 points
2019 6’5 Dillon Harrison
Harrison struggled finding the hoop in this matchup but this kid is wired to put up shots and continue to do so; it just so happened that those shots didn’t fall. However, he as crafty offensively, getting defenders up in the air several times, played smart, and one can see that he has the trigger from three; very comfortable with his outside shot.
2020 6’6 Adrian “AJ” Hamrick
The lengthy prospect was full of production in limited minutes. He is a 6’6 stretch forward that can let it fly, especially from three, and he wasn’t afraid to let fly with a very smooth, long release. He knocked down 3 three’s but he still can continue to develop as he grows into his body. Stats: 13 points
Also watch 2020 6’7 Josh Rubio, as his night was cut short as well but he brings so much energy to the court and his team. He also showed on one instance a quick touch with a surprising quick burst around the rim.
