Standout Prospects

Kevin Blake, Oakwood (6’2” SG, 2012)
 

 

The first half started off well for Kevin, breaking down defenders off the dribble and rising above them near the hoop. One explosive baseline jam in traffic showed off his impressive athleticism. He isn’t afraid to get after rebounds either. Some aggressiveness resulted in three fouls in the first, but he kept his composure and defended on the ball very well.

 

Tyrell Green, Oakwood (6’5” PF, 2014)
 

 

With teammate Isaiah Watkins in foul trouble for most of the game and not much size to replace him, Tyrell was asked to play ‘bigger’ (get in the high post, set some picks, and look for inside hoops). He showed a smooth touch with a few quick turnaround jumpers inside 8 feet and a hunger for rebounds. There is a lot to be impressed about.

 

Rohan Boney, Loyola (6’4” SF, 2012)
 

Continuing his role on the Ontario U17 team last summer, Rohan was an absolute monster on defence. When Loyola turned to a fullcourt press, he used his speed & length to force loose balls and was picking off or deflecting cross-court passes. Two breakaways resulted in two-hand slams to break the game wide open and Loyola never looked back.

Chavaun Miller-Bennett, HB Beal (6’0” PG, 2012)
 

Chavaun is one of the quickest guards with the ball in the province. His change of speeds and acceleration make him a very dangerous player. After being down 19-10 in the 2nd quarter, Chavaun & company turned up their pressure defence and made a 12-0 run, converting several turnovers into easy baskets. He is a stat-filler. While his point totals may not ‘wow’ you, he gets his share of dishes, crashes the boards, and causes turnovers every game.

Cale McDonald, North Park (6’2” SG, 2011)
 

Surprising most in attendance, North Park stayed with defending Heinbuch champion Oakwood for the entire game. A big reason was Cale’s performance on both ends. A pure shooter, Cale buried a couple of critical outside shots in the second half, including an open ‘3’ that tied the game up in the 4th quarter. As part of a structured offensive plan, his recognition of when & where to penetrate and/or pass was spot on. Defensively, he played a role in a strong 2-3 zone that had Oakwood making weak passes and failing to attack for the entire second half.
