It was a terrific day for Anderson CVI shooting guard Justin Edwards.  There's currently no player in the class of 2011 that's rising up our big board faster or leaving a stronger impression.  His 35 points vs. Fletcher's Meadow was the performance of the day.  Check out this facial which took POTD honors.    




Kevin Blake, Oakwood (6-2, SG, 2012) 

Kevin was coming off an impressive 32-point performance against long-time league rival, Eastern Commerce, the day before. While his team began slowly in their opening game against Ottawa Hillcrest, Kevin shouldered a lot of the load as the main offensive threat, scoring 33 in a tight 60-54 win. Next, he played all 32 minutes in an up-tempo high-pressured quarterfinal, as the team only went 7 deep (and two fouled out). With a more balanced team effort, he picked good shot selection, and passed well out of Denison’s constant halfcourt trapping. He was money from the free-throw line as well.

Rotimi Osuntola Jr., Holy Names (6-5, PF, 2011)


“Junior” put together another solid performance in his team’s second major tournament in as many weeks. With a slim build and excellent length, he combined his abilities to swat weak stuff around the basket on defence, while finishing with authority above the rim on offense.


Kevin Pangos, Dr.Denison (6-2, PG, 2011)

What could he do in an encore from last weekend’s 48-point MVP performance? Up against another opponent with strong defensive guards (Oakwood), Kevin pushed the ball with great speed, finding ways to elude the constant double-teaming he was drawn into, and finished with a tournament-high 39 points (according to the stats I took). He also dropped 21 three-pointers in the one minute 3-point Challenge at halftime, giving him a second straight award, while setting a tournament-record 43 over two rounds.

Shaquille Keith, Fletcher's Meadow (6-4, SF, 2012) 

The first thing that sticks out in Shaquille is his motivation to consistently use his exceptional athleticism to play hard. He uses it well as an aggressive on-the-ball defender. He is also starting to feel comfortable shooting from beyond the arc, hitting a few in the wildly paced and action-packed quarterfinal loss to Anderson.

Justin Edwards, Anderson CVI (6-2, SG, 2011)

You could tell last weekend’s loss to J Clarke Richardson on their home floor hurt. Justin & company rolled through Saltfleet to face Fletcher’s Meadow. He was poetry in motion amongst the frantic pace with bodies flying. He knew when to be calm and when to turn on the jets, leading to some great running floaters and tasty dishes to teammates like Dyshawn Pierre - the other half of Anderson’s dynamic duo. Most impressive was his unconscious range, dropping 7 three-balls as part of a sizzling 35-point performance.

Sheldon Moore, Oakwood (6-0, CG, 2012)

Often the forgotten (or under-appreciated) starter from the defending AAAA OFSAA champions, Sheldon stood out in a big way in his team’s impressive win over Denison. Hitting four 3-pointers in the first quarter, it seemed to spark the rest of his teammates to shoot with confidence. Luckily, they were falling as well. Sheldon (team-high 21 points) sank 5 in all, while the team finished with 10…and the win.
