Sunday Hoops Rolls On

For the second straight Sunday many of Central Ohio's best high school ballers made their way to the USA Sports Academy for a full afternoon of competitive hoops. This week Victor Dandridge's open gym brought in roughly fifteen 9th graders to go along with the 35 varsity level players in some highly contested games. Although the usual suspects were there, a few less heralded players stepped up this week. Michigan bound Trey Burke had another good day, as he often made the game look a bit too easy while putting up consistently big numbers most of the day. Although Cillicothie's Malik London did not bust the score board by any stretch, he did rule the paint as he preceded to throw shots into the stands on a regular basis. London is more of a defensive threat right now, but he did show signs of a developing offensive game. Westerville South's Isiah Rogers had a big day. I really liked Roger's aggressiveness and the way he pushed and distributed the rock. Not only did he lead his team, Rogers knocked down shots when open. I had a chance to check out Westerville Central's Kameron Harris for the first time, and I was really impressed with his overall game. Harris has good size and strength and call really score the ball. From what I understand, Harris sat out last high school season, and is poised to have a big year for Central. Northland's Devin Scott's games is continuing to develop, as he was almost dominate in some of the games I watched. Scott appears to be bigger and stronger and much more aggressive around the bucket. This could be a breakout year for Scott, and he may push Jalen Robinson for more minutes this coming season. Miami pledge Brian Sullivan also had a solid day as he continues to turn heads with his play. Dublin Coffman's Eric Wisenbach made a little offensive noise and the 7 footer may be turning the corner. With the loss of Michael Green to graduation and Kyle Molock to an injury, Coffman can use all the good news they can get right now. Keep an eye out for Westerville North's Jack Gibbs Jr. this season. Although it was Gibbs' first time out, he showed no signs of being intimidated. Gahanna's Jamel Morris continues to show signs of improvement with his jump shot and Tre Warr's athleticism should pay dividends for Gahanna Lincoln this season.
