Julius Little Jr.

What we’ve said:


“Johnson shows a ton of confidence in his ability to knock down shots, stretch the floor from the perimeter, and also be a useful weapon in creating as well.”


“Hill is a college-level player. His combination of size, skill, and athleticism make him a matchup problem for opponents. Getting to the basket at will, operating from the high post, and hitting jumpers as needed.”


“Brantley plays with a ton of energy, especially in the open floor. Attacks the basket intentionally, has seen tremendous development in his frame over the last year. Tough kid, plays with heart.”


“Chen is shooting the ball at a high clip. Lethal spot-up threat who moves well as a cutter. Plays hard and shows a willingness to make the extra pass. Low-maintenance piece.”


“Simpkins has played extremely well on both sides of the ball. Has scored it from all three levels. Knocked down three three-pointers.”


“Another game, another strong showing for Graham. Lethal shooter with a crafty handle and useful penetration ability. Very polished creator. Only requires a glimmer of space to get off clean looks. Scrappy defender.”


“Viktor is certainly a next-level player. Smart point guard with great court vision. Great teammate. Enjoyed watching him on the court, as he was one of the more selfless players on the team and still managed to stand out doing his job as a point guard. Viktor has a bright future.”


“Little is providing a scrappy, high-motor presence to this group. Playing well through contact while battling for rebounds and defending bigger opponents. Fills in the gaps wherever the team requires.”
