2017 Summer Championships Sunday Standouts
July 16, 2017 by Admin
Sebastian Skoko- Boston Warriors
The Vermont Academy product had a strong showing this morning. He consistently beat his defenders off the dribble and was able to finish at the rim in a variety of ways. His strong build allowed him to finish through contact on numerous occasions and helped his team pick up a win.
David Keohan- Blue Wave Elite
The 6'5" forward out of Maine showcased his high motor in this morning's win. He was able to score with his back to the basket, as well as putting the ball on the ground on the perimeter and getting to the rim. The forward moves well and is consistently attaching the glass for rebounds.
Thomas Shaughnessy- Middlesex Magic
With Brown head coach Mike Martin on hand this morning, Shaughnessy showcased his natural point guard and leadership skills in a win against a tough Vanier College Prep team. He never lacked energy throughout the game on either end of the floor and was constantly making hustle plays and getting his teammates involved
Patrick Harding- Middlesex Magic
The big man was excellent this morning, recording a double-double of 15 points and 16 rebounds. He was a load down low on the block and was relentless on the glass
Ronnie Silva- DC Blue Devils
Silva put on a show against the Middlesex Magic in the semifinals of the Summer Championships. Once again, his ability to consistently make shots from all over the floor was in full effect. Whether it was hitting pull up 3-pointers in transition or beating his man off the dribble and shooting floaters, he simply found ways to put the ball in the basket.
Kevin Fernandez- DC Blue Devils
If his teammate Silva wasn't the one putting the ball in the hoop, there was a good chance that Fernandez was. He not only hit multiple three pointers today, but consistently made shots all weekend. He plays with a high motor and has a strong frame that allows him to finish through contact.
AJ Reeves- Mass Rivals
The recent Providence commit, with HC Ed Cooley and assistants on hand, made difficult shot after difficult shot all game long. Whether it was pull up 3 pointers, fade away jumpers, or step back contested shots, Reeves continued to show his elite level to score the ball.
Akok Akok- Mass Rivals
With a number of high major head coaches in attendance, Akok showed his ability to block and alter shots at a very high level. Combine that with him running the floor hard in transition and catching several alley-oops, he continues to see his stock rise.
Jaiden Delaire- CBC
The long, athletic wing scored the ball very efficiently today in CBC's big win over the Mass Rivals. When slower defenders were guarding him, he drove by them and got to the rim. When faced against someone quicker, he simply used his length to score over them.
Jared Simmons- CBC
Simmons' go-ahead three pointer late in the game proved to seal the deal for CBC's win over the Mass Rivals. The incoming Woodstock Academy post-grad shows a knack to score. With good elevation on his jumper and the ability to play through contact, Simmons will be a tremendous addition at the prep school level.
