2016 Portsmouth Eurobasket Summer League Sunday Box Scores - Apr 17, 2016
The 2016 Eurobasket Summer League in Portsmouth concluded on Sunday April 17th. The Summer League consisted of 6 teams each playing two games at Norfolk Christian School. All Portsmouth First Team: G: Rashun Davis (180-PG, college: Radford) Rashun excelled on both ends of the floor during the Portsmouth Summer League.

The 2016 Eurobasket Summer League in Portsmouth concluded on Sunday April 17th. The Summer League consisted of 6 teams each playing two games at Norfolk Christian School.
All Portsmouth First Team:
G: Rashun Davis (180-PG, college: Radford) Rashun excelled on both ends of the floor during the Portsmouth Summer League. He showed his shooting ability on the Saturday evaluation by shooting over 60% in each shooting discipline (3s, off the dribble, off screens) and continued that success on Sunday as he led his team in scoring through the game portion. On the defensive end of the floor he secured 6 steals in the first game playing the passing lanes. Attributed with his success at Radford the future is bright for Rashun. G: Joe McDonald (185-PG-93, college: G.Washington) Joe is one of those players that I think any coach would love to have. He very quietly flirted with a triple double (11 pts, 11 reb, 7 ast) to also go along with his 4 steals. Joe was apart of the NIT Championship team at George Washington and showed he can contribute to the entire stat sheet at the Summer League. Joe's representation was present throughout the entire camp showing that he has the right people in his corner moving forward. F: Nik Biberaj (203-F-93, college: ODU) Nik posted the highest scoring output of the day on Sunday with 26 points. Nik's size and versatility is going to make him very attractive at the professional level. He was able to knock down several three's during his games on Sunday that shows the range for a player of his size. I can see him succeeded as a stretch 4 with some 3/5 versatility to begin his career. F: Shane Henry (203-F, college: Virginia Tech) Shane was by far one of the more entertaining players throughout the weekend. He was the only player to reach the coveted 11'6 mark on the vertical jump and slammed home the entire post portion of the shooting combine. He showed touch from the outside during the games on Sunday to go along with his big body and skill set around the body. F: Marko Gujanicic (203-F-92, college: George Mason) Marko in my opinion is the most pro-ready player at the Portsmouth Summer League. He showed excellent range from the outside at 6'8 and his moves in the post were already professional caliber moves. I was very impressed with his abilities and looking forward to seeing him excel at the professional level.
