Here are a couple standouts from Friday night of the BPR Invitational.
Jalen Tucker 2014 6'5" Columbus Northland/ Nova Village 17u
It was good to see Tucker be more aggressive around the rim. He was looking to dunk everything and in turn he was constantly at the free throw line. Long and thin frame, who is only getting longer. Really uses his length on the boards on both ends.
Manny Powell 2014 5'7" Gahanna Lincoln/Hidden Gems
Was active on the defensive end, and pushed the ball in transition. Had a couple very nice full court passes that were right on the money. Showed he can hit the one dribble pull-up and also read the pick-n-roll.
Tyus Ferguson 2016 5'9 VCC Ohio Warriors
This point guard has a very good feel for the game. He does a great job of calling for the outlet pass and actually going to get it. Is not afraid to use the pass to advance the ball, while making good decisions on whether to keep it or not. Showed he can also score the ball too, hitting some pretty floaters in the lane. Is constantly looking to hit his bigs on dump offs when their defenders step up.
