July 19, 2010 – The Super Elite Showcase occurred in Northern Virginia over a week ago, boasting players in the 15, 16, and 17 under classifications. With its epicenter being Lee High School in Springfield, the Commonwealth was treated to good ball.

Before listing 17 and 16 and under all star crews, it must be shared that the Stafford Hoyas took home 17u hardware, besting a game Kid’s First Basketball unit. Congrats go out to them.

The following colleges had coaches present: Morgan State, NC A&T, MD, Villanova, Pitt, Mt. St. Marys, Towson, Randolph Macon, Delaware, VMI, UMES, VCU, Loyola, Marshall, Longwood, St. Francis (PA), Niagara, Quinnipiac, Hampden Sydney, Robert Morris, UMass, St. Johns, Howard, Rice, Seton Hall, George Mason.

17u All Stars:

Jerome Seagears, DC Assualt, 5’10”, 185 lbs, senior point guard – Seagears leads and scores from multiple scenarios on the floor. Is solidifying his jumper.

Kyle Anderson, Playaz, 6’7”, 220 lbs, junior forward – A true ‘point forward’, Anderson finds teammates, scores – shooting and driving – and is a smart defender. Though skilled, needs to continue getting quicker.

Brandon Hubert, Playaz, 6’9”, 200 lbs, senior forward/center – Presently stronger on defense as he is a more than solid shot blocker, Hubert is developing his back to the basket game. Runs the floor well.

Brandon Hubert (32) hedges on Jarvis Threatt.

Kevin Smith, 5’10”, 185 lbs, senior guard – Becoming more of a point guard is a plus for Smith, who uses his athletic ability and backcourt skills to score at the rim and from the perimeter. The transition to a floor leader should continue.

Lamont Huggins, 6’7”, 200 lbs, senior center – Having worked hard on his game, Lamont is now a very solid mid range shooter. Due to success is enjoying playing. Needs to get stronger.

Jon Schoof will battle.

Jarvis Threatt, 6’2”, 170 lbs, senior guard – Threatt has shocking athletic ability, and combines it with shooting and ball patting skill. Defensively he has his moments, but must concentrate on that aspect of the game more, in addition to getting stronger.

Jon Schoof, 6’4”, 180 lbs, senior swingman – Schoof is not only an ‘knock-down’ shooter, but also makes solid basketball plays like cut off ball, rebound and pass. His driving ability should continue improving.

17 u Sleepers:

Kerron ‘Plays’ DeSheilds, 6’2”, 180 lbs, post grad point guard, B’More Assault – DeShields has been dubbed ‘Plays’ by this writer because he makes them despite not being the quickest or most athletic; that includes driving, passing, defending and leading.

Ibn Muhammed, 6’3”, 185 lbs, senior point guard, Team Takeover – Lightening quick, diminutive floor leader gets up and down, finds guys, and leads.

Greg ‘Donte’ LaFortune, 6’3”, 180 lbs, senior guard, Kid’s First Basketball – Athletic backcourt guy with high upside.

Obi Oleeka, 6’6”, 185 lbs, senior forward, Kid’s First Basketball – Hyper athletic, this developing wing player can hit the three ball, rebound and put it on your head.

Evan Hymes, 5’8”, 155 lbs, senior point guard, VA Assault– Loves to drive, after which he generally finds teammates for easy scores.

Dajon Daniels – 6’1”, 185 lbs, post grad guard, Stafford Hoyas - Daniels, currently unsigned, can shoot and is scrappy.

Blake Bozeman lets it fly over Malik Kone.

Blake Bozeman - 6'3", 175 lbs, post grad guard, Kid's First Basketball - Still the knock down shooter he's always been, Bozeman can now make plays for others.

Malik Kone - 6'6", 200 lbs, senior forward, DC Assault - Formerly highly regarded as only a shooter, Kone is approaching those heights again, and has added better ball handling and rebounding. He seems to be getting his 'mojo' back.

16u All Stars

Adala Moto Arnuad – 6’6”, 200 lbs, junior swingman, Team Takeover – A physical player that attacks, attacks, attacks, Arnuad must continue developing his handle; he can dribble now, but is a little stiff with it. Adala’s jumper is coming along, and he’s already a very solid defender.

Jerami Grant – 6’8”, 180 lbs, junior swingman, Team Takeover – Grant, long and athletic, is a swingman that attacks the tin and hits long jumpers. Greater mid-range focus would open his game, as would more strength and consistent focus.

Joe McDonald – 6’1”, 175 lbs, point guard, Team Takeover – Solid across the board, McDonald will score, strap and lead. Must work on his jump shot’s consistency.

Amille Jefferson, Jerami Grant and Savon Jefferson battle for the ball in Team Philly's thrilling overtime win over Team Takeover.

Amille Jefferson – 6’8”, 190 lbs, junior forward , Team Philly - Intelligent and skilled, Jefferson plays around the need for more strength by drawing out big guys and posting smaller ones.

Savon Goodman – 6’7”, 190 lbs, junior forward, Team Philly – A rim pounding ace, Goodman is on the high end of attacking that rim. Is working on his jumper – its coming along - and handle – more of a work in progress as he can attack in half court situations but struggles in the open floor.

Nate Britt III – 6’2”, 170 lbs, junior point guard, DC Assault – Heady and skilled, Britt leads his team and scores when necessary. Understands the need to improve across the board.

Selected 15 guys

Will Ferguson - 6’1”, 150 lbs, sophomore point guard, Team Takeover – Quick and skilled, Will is solidifying his understanding of the game.

Charles Glover – 6’2”, 160 lbs, sophomore guard, Team Takeover – Capable of putting big numbers up, Glover is not a gunner; he gets his in the flow. Likely needs to be a full time point man.

Ramello Trimble attacks the tin.

Romello Trimble – 6’2”, 155 lbs, freshman swingman, DC Assault – All around offensive threat that plays hard. Open floor handle is improving.

Josh McNeil – 6’6”, 200 lbs, sophomore forward, DC Assault – Though he plays on the ground more or less, McNeil is a monster on the boards and has the ability to score around the tin and out to about 15 feet. Should work on his passing recognition.

Stan Robinson – 6’3”, 185 lbs, sophomore forward, Team Takeover – His jumpshot is a work of progress – Stan doesn’t have confidence in it at times and lets his arm slide out – but he plays hard, rebounds, defends and passes.

Arnold Fields – 6’4”, 170 lbs, freshman forward, DC Assault – Shooter that is tracking as a future swingman. Should develop handle and body.
