REVIEWS WITH ROB
Super 16 Edition
I’m going to do something a little different in this article thanks to a conversation that I had with one particular parent. He inspired me to talk about under the radar kids ,the ones lost in the shadows until now: So without further ado here’s my under the radar performers from the Super 16.
2021 Tom Hart (Atascocita) – Shot the ball very well, guarded with vigor and Won a lot. Excited to see more of him as the season goes along.
2020 Trey Davenport (Atascocita)-Played on and off the ball, guarded and played with good energy all weekend.
2023 Wesley Yates (Beaumont United)– Harrison is the man , Arceneaux is a star in the making. But if they want to make it to San Antonio, the young pup Yates will have to make shots. That’s exactly what he did all weekend on the way to an undefeated
2020 Kenyon Holcombe (Concordia Lutheran)– A rugged rebounder and post defender that consistently stepped out and made perimeter shots.
2020 Xavier Bordelon (Dickinson)– The ultimate X factor. If he becomes more consistent on his perimeter jumper, the floor will open up for him to showcase
his superb athleticism.
2020 Jabari Miller (Dickinson)– His toughness and high flying ability was quite eye opening. Also stepped out made 3’s and guarded post players. I was very impressed.
2021 Lucas Burton (Lamar)– An intriguing inside/outside presence. That has enough talent and scoring ability to be a viable second option. Saw him get 12 straight
points in one game.
2020 Roland McDougal (Legacy)– On my “All Tough Team”. Engine was always running, jumping out of the gym and defending all weekend. Was a huge catalyst
in the upset win over Yates.
2020 Wesley Sellers (Morton Ranch)– Always knew he was a good perimeter defender. But he displayed ball handling and also a knack for getting in the paint for assists or baskets for himself.
2020 Joshua Cooper (Northshore)– After not playing the first game, he came back with a vengeance. He showed the ability to push and transition, shoot off the dribble and finish down the lane. Cooper is definitely the straw that stirs the drink on the Eastside this year.
2021 Yasuel Santiago (PA Memorial)– We know about the inside Clover & Lofton. We know about the shooting of Abrams, but this kid brought toughness, ball handling
and a 94ft defensive mindset all weekend. If he plays consistent this team could be special.
2020 Clay Baldwin (Ridgepoint)– Whenever his team needed a bucket, he was right there. Led them to a surprising run to the quarterfinals.
2021 Jackson Banks (Sam Houston)– I’ve personally been waiting to see this kid play. He didn’t disappoint. Banks scored on all 3 levels and defended decently. Once he really gets into playing shape he will be a great addition to this team.
2020 Trey Hartfield (Shadow Creek)– The ultimate “Utility Guy”. Never specialized in one area, but was productive in many facets. He needs to be a Senior leader for this young but talented team.
2020 Fadi Mott (Sharpstown)– Was unguardable the first night of action. Saw him make about 5 big layups to seal a big victory.
2021 Reyce Allen (Summer Creek)– Played with reckless abandon, had a high motor and tough. Also had the play of the weekend. Can’t wait to see more.
2020 Tucker Nooe (Woodlands Christian)– Every time I saw this team, he was getting extra possession with timely offensive rebounds. His 3 point shooter will definitely be looked upon to take scoring pressure off of their back court.
