Phenom Hoops Notes:
Watching this young man, one can see that this kid is gifted in his game. When you see him, you can see how athletic he is as a guard and pretty strong when he drives to the lane; he can really finish at the rim and in tough situations. Saunders really can show determination off-the-dribble in getting to the rim and finishing, sometimes with authority. With that part of his game, it can be hard to defend him because he does possess to hurt you from outside. Really seems to be a versatile guard on the court and simply, a play maker.
Coach Nathan Johnson:
"Saunders can really shoot it and is a very gifted slasher and athlete. He is really working hard this year on being more efficient off-the-bounce. He is also a very good passer."
"I think I play both ends of the court. Jamal Crawford like is what everyone says that I play like. I'm good off pick and rolls and getting out in transition, with the ability to catch and shoot three's and finishing in transition."
