Kiski Tip Off- Day One Recap

Posted on 13. Nov, 2010 by Nolan Shulman in Canada Spotlight, High School, Tournaments

 

It was a terrific first day in Saltsburg, PA, home of the 2010 Kiski Tip Off.  Day one gave us a terrific opportunity to take in numerous nationally ranked Canadian prospects, and for the most part they were terrific.  Here's a look at the results and who stood out !!

 

Results

5:00 pm - Imani Christian (PA) vs. REDA Prep (CAN) - REDA 90-44

6:30 pm - Covenant Christian (GA) vs. Princeton Day (MD) - Princeton Day 83-66

8:00 pm - NIA Prep (NJ) vs. Next Level Prep (CAN) - Next Level 90-89 (OT)

9:30 pm - Kiski School (PA) vs. Metro Prep (CAN) - Kiski 83-62

Standout Prospects

Sim Bullar, Kiski Prep (7-4, 2012)

While he didn't go for 32, 18, and 13 like he did vs. Lee Academy on Wednesday, Sim was really effective in the limited minutes they needed him.  With the game out of hand in the second half, Sim spent most of it on the sidelines cheering on his teammates. While he was in, Sim's size and hands were too much for Metro Prep to defend.  They connected on the backdoor lob 3 times, he rebounded the heck out of his area, and altered countless shots. 

Andrew Van Camp, Kiski Prep (6-8, 2012)

Andrew was the surprise of day one.  He came in and gave Kiski a spark off the bench, ensuring there was no drop off from the second unit big men.  He rebounded his area, blocked 2 shots, showed body control and creativity at the rim and directed traffic.  He's still learning the intracacies of the game, but he's definately a nationally ranked talent.  Don't be surprised to find the Port Perry native's name on the list in our next update.  (see picture above)

Grant Mullins, REDA (6-0, 2011)

 

I'm not sure I've ever seen Grant Mullings commit a turnover and that trend continued on day one.  While I already knew he was a mistake free point guard, it was his ability to play at multiple speeds which impresed me.  He was effective in the half court and in transition.  He also did great job defensively keeping his man in front of him.  Another solid outing by Grant Mullins. 

 

Brian Rouse, REDA (6-3, 2011)

Brian was dominant in the open floor yesterday and brought consistent energy.  He finishes everything at the rim and is a super impressive athlete.  He needs to continue to work on that jump shot, as it remains the biggest weakness in his game.  He's made dramatic improvements in his ability to handle it… the next step has to be to improve the jumper.  He also has the ability to defens multiple positions.  Just needs to work every possession. 

Jahmar Thomspson, Metro Prep

 

Jahmar may be  a tad undersized as a three, but he makes up for it with toughness.  He scored multiple buckets in the paint, and brought a blue collar attitude to the court.  He needs to improve his ball skills in order to take another jump as a prospect. 

 

 

Bikram Gill, Next Level Prep

Bikram made the most of his debut with Next Level Prep.   He's trying to make the transition to the wing and looks to have made big time progress defensively.  He showed the ability to guard out to the perimeter and did a great job moving his feet.  He still needs to become a better shooter and ball handler, but looks to be getting better each time out. 

Marquis Clayton, Next Level Prep

While he's flown under our radar up to this point, that's about to change.  We were really impressed with his ability to put pressure on the basketball and break his defender down off the bounce.  He also showed the desire to want the ball in big moments and made two clutch free throws down 1 with 1.7 seconds left to give Next Level the win over NIA Prep.
