Team 1: Ben Stywall

No. 62 5’7 ’19 Jordan Cooper (SE Raleigh)

Jordan demonstrated a tremendous work ethic throughout the day. Somewhat undersized currently, but that didn’t stop him from making a big impact. Jordan is wired to score and can score from all levels on the court. Coach Stywall stated, “Jordan is a very talented guard with a nice offensive package. He showed the ability to break his man down and finish in the lane. He was also effective from the midrange out to the 3-point line.” Overall, Jordan has outstanding quickness and nice handles, but we were more impressed with his ability to put constant ball pressure on the opposing player. In our opinion, he has the opportunity to be a lock down defender. Avg. 12.3 PPG

No. 64 5’9 ’19 Nathan Yow (Southern Lee)

Nathan is a high IQ and fundamentally sound player. Currently, his strongest attribute is his ability to shoot efficiently from the 3-point line. He has a quick release and excellent footwork in preparing for his shot. “Coach Stywall stated, “Nathan is a knockdown 3-pointer shooter and has outstanding range. He moved well without the ball and played well within the team structure.” The next step in his development is to work on creating his own shot off the dribble and diversifying his offensive moves. Overall, Nathan demonstrated a great attitude and team first approach the entire day. Avg. 7.7 PPG

He shoots the ball with confidence and range.” Overall, the next step is to enhance his midrange and work on his off hand. Defensively, he has quick feet and great anticipation. Avg. 11.3 PPG

No. 183 6’3 ’19 Traegen Smith (Wakefield)

Traegen is a blue-collar worker who will maximize effort and energy in every game. He’s not afraid to do the little things that make a team successful.

Defensively, Traegen has long arms and moves his feet well which allows him to be a disruptive defender.” Overall, we really liked his approach to the game. He brought a winner’s attitude that was very contagious. Avg. 7.3 PPG
