Officials:
Technical fouls: PRAGUE-None. KIEV-None.

Stockholm defeated Budapest 72-66 in a very interesting but low scoring contest to gain the 5th place victory.
Brandon Givens (198-F, college: Jones County CC) was very impressive and showed the ESL scouts he deserves an opportunity to showcase his skills professionally overseas.
Brandon was the 2010-11 National Juco Player of the Year and is extremely talented for the pro level.
Travis George (F) a former Juco Teammate of Brandon was also very impressive for the winning team.
He scored 15 points and 7 rebounds unleashing a couple of thundering dunks in the process.
Travis has professional experience in Mexico and has great athleticism, intensity and upside potential.
He is a NBA type of athlete that needs to develop in a quality overseas market.
The ultra smooth Jared Cunningham (206-F-89, college: Cumberlands) led the Budapest team with 14 points and 5 rebounds.
Jared is a silky smooth scorer with serious potential to be great in Europe due to his size and high skill level.
Freddy Little (185-G-86, college: Montevallo) and Kevin Francis (203-F-84, college: Vincennes Univ.) both provided double digit scoring as well for the losing side.

ESL New York City Game Reports - Day 2 - Aug 9, 2011

ESL 2011 New York City Game Reports Day 2

Game 5: Istanbul 88 Helsinki 79

This game was a big upset as the Helsinki team was favored to win the ESL New York City event on paper.
The game was close during the entire contest as both teams had momentum swings.
However during the final quarter Istanbul last run was too much for the cold shooting team from Helsinki.
Istanbul defeated Helsinki 88-79 in a highly competitive contest.
Istanbul was led by former Seton Hall player Mike Davis (211-F/C-86, college: Seton Hall) who dominated the inside by scoring 21 points and 12 rebounds.
The team decided to run the offense through him as the tactic work to perfection in the crucial part of the final quarter.
This left handed inside player has the skill, size and arm length to make him a quality professional player in Europe.
A.J. Mastin (191-G-83, college: So.Poly State) had an outstanding game scoring 20 points but all of his points were dagger shots when the Helsinki team had shifted the momentum.
This guy is a great jump shooter and has a nice pull up game using a couple of dribbles each way.
Nicholas King (201-F/G-82, college: St.Augustine) also played well showing his all around athletic game scoring 10 points.
Cordell Hall (180-G-87, college: Wilberforce) the ultra quick point guard did a great job during the contest and scored 10 points and 4 assists.
Raason Young (198-F, college: Montana St. - Billin) also played well as the athletic assassin chipped in 12 points and 4 rebounds in the win for Istanbul.
Chad Tomko (180-G-89, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment, college: NC-Wilmington) the gifted quick and crafty point guard from UNC Wilmington displayed his skills as usual.
He scored 17 points and 5 assists and gave the Istanbul fits trying to contain him.
This kid will be a very good pro player in Europe and has the crafty moves combines with quickness and a great scoring ability.
He is also a dead eye jump shooter from anywhere on the court. The kid is a flat out player and would do well in Germany or Belgium.
Raymond Wright (206-C-85, college: Ark.-Monticello) had another outstanding game showing of his pro skills scoring 15 points on limited shots.
This kid is a nice 4 man in Europe who can score and rebound with the best of them.
Once a team sees this kid plays he will have an outstanding career overseas.
The super explosive John Williams (193-F-86, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment, college: NC-Asheville) played well and exploded with a few dunks and 14 points in this
contest.

Game 6: Budapest 83 Kiev 71

Budapest defeated Kiev 83-71 with a total team effort as five (5) of their players scored in double figures.
The first quarter the Budapest team stormed out of the gates and opened up a big league.
In the second quarter Kiev with the dynamic play of Brian Addison (205-F-87, college: Buffalo) stormed back into the game and was only down a few points at half time.
However in the second half Budapest just took control of the game and cruise to a 12 point victory.
Jared Cunningham (206-F-89, college: Cumberlands) the smooth forward who was a 2010-11 NAIA All American again led the Budapest team in scoring with 15 points.
He has nice size and is a natural scorer who would do well in leagues like the BBL in the UK to begin his career.

ESL Cologne Press Release Day 3: - July 20, 2011

ESL Cologne Day (3) Results:

Game (5)
Team Sofia 87 Team Seville 82

The Sofia team comprised of players from the United Kingdom surprised the Team Seville in the final day of the ESL Cologne event.
Former England International legend Sam Stiller devised a game plan that worked against the bigger and much more athletic team from the United States.
They used a lot of pressure defense and a ball screen offense to pure perfection against the talented Seville team.
A key factor was keeping Seville off of the offensive glass and Coach Sam Stiller instructed his players to block out the more athletic team.
However the stellar performance of Duke-Jermaine Forbes (6'1''-G-80, college: W.Georgia) (30pts) with 8/13 shooting 61% of the floor propelled Sofia to victory.
Jermaine is a super talented Bosman A guard that has played in several countries in Europe. He has the game to play at a high level and has all the skills to be a big time player in Europe.
Willie Irick (6'6''-F-84, college: Oklahoma City) the talented swing man from the Seville Team scored 25pts and 7rbs for Seville.
Dwayne Foreman (5'10''-G-84, college: Georgia Southern) who may have been the most interesting player and best PG in the Cologne event scored 18pts and 9ast.
However the sharp shooting display of Duke-Duke-Jermaine Forbes (6'1''-G-80, college: W.Georgia) and Team Sofia was too much for Team Seville.
Carl Josey (6'5''-G-86, college: VMI) the talented guard from Sofia chipped in 11 points and Jeff Danchie (5'10''-G-84) also contributed 14 points for the winning side.

In the second game of Day (2) a well balanced Team Munich beat Team Sofia 95-79.
Almost all (7) of the Munich players scored double figures.
The big and athletic Justin Knox (6'9''-F) (14pts, 10rbs) led his team with his second double double and Nicholas Pederson (6'8''-F-85) (14pts, 9rbs) played strong in the paint and controlled the boards.
The other double figure scorers of the Munich Team included Giannis Prodromou (6'5''-F-87), Joshua Brown (6'1''-G-88, college: Mount Olive), Rivelino Pierre (6'4''-G), Edson Jones (6'4''-G-79) and Dwight Gentry (6'0''-G-87).
After this type of team play these guys look like the team to beat in this ESL event.
Duke-Jermaine Forbes (6'1''-G-80, college: W.Georgia) (22pts, 5rbs, 4ast) was again very impressive for Team Sofia in a losing cause.
He is a very skilled and talented player who deserves a quality contract in Europe.
Dave Ajumobi (6'4''-F-88) had a terrific all around game scoring 16 points and grabbing 8 rebounds for the Sofia team.

Jason had two outstanding games at the ESL and was the best rebounding guard in the event.

Trevor Bing (191-G-85, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment) Trevor Bing is an outstanding combo guard with a high basketball IQ that really score and run a team. He is an excellent shooter from the outside and he can get to the basket at any time.

Kiwan Smith (201-F-87, college: Redlands CC) - This kid is a freak athlete that will get numbers by just being on the basketball court. He plays above the rim and is great in transition.
He is an excellent defender and he will block a lot of shots above the rim. He has a decent 3pt jump shot and ball handling abilities. He will be a star in Europe for teams looking for a next level 68 athlete that will get double double by just being on the court. He can defend players from the 1 4 and is like an athletic Dennis Rodman with more offensive skills.

David Fisher (198-F-84, college: N.Mexico St.) - David is terrific athlete and a gifted athlete with skills. He can really drive the basketball and hit the outside shoot with consistency.
With his size, skill level and athleticism he can play in variety of leagues in the international basketball market. He can take any defender to the basket using his creative ball handling skills and once he gets to the basket he will over power most guys.


ESL Las Vegas Final Game Report - A great finish to an Outstanding Tournament - July 13, 2011

Eurobasket Summer League 11 (Las Vegas)
Day 3
Game 9

Geneva 116 - APSE Venice 91

The first game of the last day in Vegas featured ex NBA guy Phil Hubbard against Mike Taylor (agency: Pro One Sports ).
Terrell Bell (6'6''-G/F-89) had his full game on display. Here is a player that can play several positions on the floor with efficiency. He can shoot, pass, penetrate he has crafty moves when at the rim and he has athleticism. Terrell can play in high levels in Europe now. Jabril Banks (6'7''-F-87, college: N.Colorado) also has an interesting game for APSE Venice. He has a wide body with quick feet. He has excellent moves around the rim. He can be a go to guy in the post, initially, in leagues similar to Italy A2, Serbia or France Pro B. The guy that his most difficult to defend on this team is Brad Byerson. He has a wide body with great footwork. He is strong around the rim and is good at grabbing rebounds in traffic. Brad will be a very good player in leagues like Turkey, Greece and Israel. For Geneva, the player that has been the most consistent for his team has been Akeem Scott (6'1''-PG-83, agency: Interperformances, college: High Point) He is a strong guard that is very aggressive on both the defensive and offensive end. He is extremely quick and knows how to play on the professional level. His past experience in Finland shows he can compete in better countries in Europe.
The story of this game was Akeem Scott, he simply controlled the game and broke down Venice defense with great passes off the penetration and scored at will.
He is great for mid-level teams in Europe looking for a high quality PG.
Tyrone Hanson (6'7''-G/F-87) (13pts) went on a streak of buckets in the second half that help Geneva open up the game.
The smooth shooting James Crowder (12pts) went off in the second half as well connecting on a couple of 3pt shots.
Chris Moore and James Helton also had impressive games.
The 7'8' Paul Sturgess (7'8''-C-87, agency: KMG Sports Management) woke up in this game with some impressive post moves. He also hit a couple of free throw extended jump shots. He also had some impressive blocks. Paul would be good for any teams looking for height on the inside. Team Geneva ended the game with seven guys in double figures. Tim Parham (6'9''-F/C-83, college: Md-Eastern Shore) added a double double with 11-points and 10-rebounds. Terrell Bell finished with 20-points, 13-rebounds and 4-assist respectfully.

Game 10 (ESL 2011 Las Vegas Championship Game)

Zurich 110 - Lugano 118

The game everyone was waiting for was the second game of the day. The ESL Las Vegas Championship featured two teams that were unbeaten in the first two days of play.
The game was very exciting and went in to overtime as Lugano led by the excellent play of Marcel Anderson (5'9''-PG-86, college: Harris-Stowe St.) in overtime won the contest.
Marcel is the quickest and most athletic PG that the ESL has scouted in the past four summers. His speed, skills and athleticism reminds us of Allen Iverson.
The kid plays with a big heart as well and can do it all. He has the talent of an Euroleague Player but needs to improve his decision making.
Once he gets in Europe with a quality coach he will be a six figure player. He simply put his will on the Championship and scored 8 straight points in overtime to seal the deal.
Justin Johnson (6'2''-PG-88, college: Concordia Irvine) was simply fantastic in the first half as he created off the dribble like a Chris Paul type of player and finished with some nice tear drop shots.
This kid is an amazing talent and will have a bright future in Europe. He is just as good as former ESL Las Vegas Co-MVP's McKay Myles (6'3''-G-86, college: WiscKing.-Whitew.) and Kyle Lamonte (6'3''-G-84, college: William Carey).
During the game Lugano controlled the lead the majority of the time.
However Zurich always stayed close and during the final minutes of the regulation period was the better team as they had fought back every game in the ESL event.
Energetic coach Glen Hayes brought his team into this game with is Co-MVP's Marcel Anderson and Justin Johnson (6'2''-PG-88, college: Concordia Irvine). Coach Jay Bradford from the Gary Splash comes into this game after a double overtime victory in the semi-finals game. Their stud Robert Eldridge led them. Early in the game, Glen Hayes had his team playing at a high level. They were defending well and getting easy baskets in transition. The three-point specialist/proven scorer Lindsey Hughey (6'3''-G-89) began where he left off at the day before with bombs from everywhere. In the 2nd quarter, to no surprise, efficient Justin Johnson went to work. He scored 12 points in five minutes of play increasing his teams advantage to eight points. Dustin Mitchell (6'9''-F/C, college: WiscKing.-Whitew.) (17pts; 9rbs) looked great for Lugano behind Marcel Andersons penetration towards the rim. He hit the biggest shot of the game with .44 seconds left to play for Lugano. Dustin Mitchell is a very good power forward. He can shoot the long ball, can finish with either hand around the rim and is a good rebounder. Dustin is a player that can play in Italy A2, France Pro A and leagues equivalent. The guy that has not gotten much attention but has been the nucleus to team Lugano is Allen Durham (6'6''-F) aka Mr. Hustle had 16pts, 15rbs and 6blks. He is a strong, undersized power forward that can rebound and block shots. Any teams looking for a player to do the dirty work in countries like Switzerland, France Pro B and Finland this is your guy. The game would go into over time after Mitchells 2-point jump shot. But in over-time, Marcel Anderson put his team on his shoulders and got the Championship win for Lugano. Rob Eldridge (6'2''-G-87, college: Florida Southern) had an outstanding game with 24-points and 4-rebounds respectfully. This combo guard is a strong and athletic player that gets in lane at will and has a nice jump shot. He is also an excellent defender and can play in many leagues in Europe. Chad Tomko (5'11''-G-89, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment) (5'11''-G-89, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment) the outstanding talented PG from North Carolina Wilmington was simply fantastic. He created off the dribble shooting floaters and hit some deep balls. His skills and quickness caused serious problems for the quick Lugano guards as he scored 15pts and 4ast in 18 minutes. The Lugano coach said after the game they did them a big favor by playing him limited minutes because they could not stop him. Frank Phifer (6'9''-C-80, college: Washburn) had a quality game as he recorded 11 points and 11 rebounds. This kid is a quality big man and deserves to a nice job in Europe. He was one of the surprises of the ESL with his brilliant inside play.
Game and League Co-MVP Marcel Anderson with 24-points, 6-rebounds and Justin Johnson chipped in for 19-points, 6-rebounds.

Game 11/span>

Manchester 116 - Brussels 92

In this game had coach Tunde Adekola (former assistant coach at ULM Basket in Germany) coaching MR. Johnny Thomas (6'6''-F-87, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment) of Brussels against Mr. Robert Mitchell (6'6''-F-86) of Manchester.
In the first half Solomon Tat (6'5''-G/F-86, college: Virginia) and Christian Simmons were the top performers. Solomon connected on 5-8 shooting. Solomon is a strong guard, a chiseled body and great athleticism. This kid is a great prospect for teams in Spain looking for Contonou players.
He is a big guard or wing player who attacks the basket like crazy with superb athleticism and has a nice mid range jump shot.
Christian is a pure shooter who connected from several locations on the court.
Johnny Thomas had a quiet first half. In the second half he picked up his offensive production to finish the game with 16-points and 10-rebounds for the losers.
John is a very talented athletic player with a great jump shot. He is a big time prospect for team in markets like Germany and Belgium.
Manchester finished the game with seven players in double figures.
Amongst those was Jason Stubbs (6'2''-G-86, college: Simpson (CA)) with 14-points and 13-rebounds. This was Jason's second straight high quality game. He is an excellent combo guard who can play for entry level teams across the European market. He is very strong and athletic and does a lot of things well. Robert Mitchell (14pts; 9rbs) this former A10 Rookie of the Year is a quality prospect for teams in Europe. He can play the 1,2 and 3 positions and can do it all offensively. Dennard Abraham had an outstanding game scoring 16pts and 9rbs.
Dennard is an excellent athlete who has nice moves attacking the basket and a very strong body. He can definitely play overseas and would be a great forward for a quality team in Europe.
Noah Gottlieb (6'1''-G-88) played extremely well and is a poor mans version of Steve Nash.
He is a crafty pure PG who makes great decisions and can really shoot the ball.
He is very talented and can play professionally on the international market.
George Travis (F) from the losing team had a double-double as he scored 10 pts and 10rbs.
He played last year in Mexico and has a lot of upside potential as he is a big time athlete who competes.
Dijuan Harris (5'9''-G-86, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment, college: Charlotte) (10pts; 4ast) the very quick and talented PG had another quality performance at the ESL Las Vegas event.Mr Harris is a fine PG that will land in Europe.
Game MVP goes to Solomon Tat with 20-points with 8-14 shooting from the field.

Game 4

Union Dublin 111 - Monaco 105

The last game of the Las Vegas ESL featured Monaco's Mr. Dawson Eric (6'10''-F-84, college: Midwestern St.) (the best player at the Las Vegas ESL) against Dublin's Kenny Boyd (6'8''-C-82, college: Morehouse) & co. Eric has shown in the past two days that he is the only high level player at the ESL. Eric has a lot of talent and can compete in all leagues in Europe. In the final game, Eric did not disappoint. He completely dominated the game with 26 points and 13 rebounds.
Eric has been playing in the NBDL, Japan and Korea.
The majority of time he has been played exclusively as a 4/5 but is really a small forward/power forward who has guard skills and can play defense on a few positions.
He is an excellent player for France Pro A, Italy, Israel, Turkey and Euro Cup teams. The kid can shoot the ball, operate from inside and the perimeter.
In the right situation in Europe he will become a seven figure earner.
Maurice Steen (6'2''-G-87) the outstanding PG for the Dublin team turned heads all weekend with his excellent play and decision making. He can penetrate, shoot from the outside and play great defense. He is quick and a fine athlete. He added 21-points and 6-rebounds.
Dublin put up a good fight with six players in double figures. The best player for Dublin was Kenny Boyd. He had 17-points and 10-rebounds. Kenny is a very good big man that knows how to score in the low post.
Jarred Stockton (6'4''-F/G-83, college: Jacksonville) (18pts; 9rbs) and Robert Nash (21pts) the former Japan BJ League player both had quality games.
Vincent Goldsberry (6'0''-PG-89) the outstanding PG from Coppin State scored 12 points and 12 assists.
He had a quality ESL Tournament and looks like a future pro with all of his quickness and all around PG play.
Tristan Martin (6'2''-G-82, college: Houston) scored 15 points as he attack the basket all game and tournament long.
He is a very talented guard as well who will play in the international market.
Josh Wilson (6'2''-G-87, agency: Hightower Law Firm, college: N.Arizona) (14pts; 3ast) is Mr Crafty with a dead eye jump shot and deceiving defensive ability.
Looking at Josh you would not think he has a serious game but after watching him for 3 days you just say wow this kid is a player.
He has two years of professional European experience and is an excellent guard.
His dribble penetrating skills are good and he is very strong and has a high basketball IQ.
Kenny Hewitt (6'7''-F-89, agency: HBA Sports) from Lubbock Christian College had his best scoring game.
Kenny is a big time athlete who is a good all around player. He would be a star in the BBL in England.
Kiwan Smith (6'7''-F-87) is the athletic junk man. This kid has relentless energy and is a great team guy. If I'm a team in Europe looking for a player who can do it all and be a glue guy then he is your man. He is a sick athlete at 6'8' that is a beast on the boards and runs the lane like a deer. He plays hard nose defense and is a great rebounder. He is definitely a pro.
Game MVP goes to Dawson Eric with 26-points, 13-rebounds and 4-assist.

ESL Las Vegas Event Day 2 Results - July 12, 2011

Eurobasket Summer League 11 (Las Vegas)
Day 2

Game 5

Lugano 120 Monaco 115

The first game of day 2 featured two teams that won their quarter-final opener. This game had several pro players on both teams. Coach Glen Hayes and NAIA Player of the Year Mr Justin Johnson (6'2''-PG-88, college: Concordia Irvine) looked ready for the highly skilled professional Mr. Dawson Eric (6'10''-F-84, college: Midwestern St.) and the Union Monaco team.
This was a very competitive contest where both teams surged back and forth with lots of lead changes but in the end Lugano advance to the ESL Championship game.
Union Monaco big guards and defensive pressure had an immediate impact on the game.
Lugano yesterday beat a team by 40 points but in todays game found their team in a dog fight.
There were several key possessions late in the game that gave Lugano the advantage.
A flagrant foul was crucial on a fast break giving Lugano free throws and the ball in a one possession game.
This game was one of the best contests in the ESL 2011 Las Vegas event.

Dawson Eric (18pts; 15rbs) should be playing on a NBA Summer League Team or a big club in Europe.
This 6'9' big man can handle the basketball like a guard, shoot extremely well and has an excellent inside game.
He easily can defend small forwards as well as power forwards.
Dawson can make an immediate impact in high levels in Europe (Turkey, Italy A1, Greece) and Asian markets.

Kiwan Smith (6'7''-F-87) (19pts; 7rbs) was playing very good for Monaco. He is relentless on the glass, which gave him several easy layups. He is a athletic work horse that will do very well in Europe with his high energy play.
Maurice Steen (6'2''-G-87) (20pts) was a key contributor for Monaco as well. He hit several deep 3pt shots and was super-aggressive on the defensive end. Dawson Eric did everything for his team; rebounding, steals and assist.
Perry Petty (6'1''-G) had an outstanding game scoring 21 points and playing great defense.
Then there was a Lindsey Hughey (6'3''-G-89) sighting. He was unstoppable in the forth quarter. He connected from deep, in the lane, from the line and an array of mid-range shots. He is a very confident player. When he gets hot, he is extremely tough to stop.
Allen Durham (6'6''-F) was a monster on the boards, he had 14 points and 15 rebounds.
He recorded 10 offensive rebounds alone which had an effect on the game.
The other outstanding guards for Lugano played well again.
Marcel Anderson (5'9''-PG-86, college: Harris-Stowe St.) scored 22 points and is probably the fastest guy at the ESL event.
He has an Iverson like game.
Justin Johnson chipped in another 15 points illustrating his fine PG scoring skills.
Again, Coach Glen Hayes led his team to a commanding lead late in the 4th. His constant communication and high energy from the sidelines increases the level of intensity of his players.
Lugano will be in the ESL Championship game on Sunday.

Dawson Eric finished the game with 18-points, 15-rebounds, 4-steals and 6-assist respectfully for Monaco.
The game MVP goes to Luganos Lindsey Hughey with 27 points, 7 assists, 3 steals and 4-rebounds.

Game 6

Geneva 115 Manchester 121

Game 2 had 78 Paul Sturgess (7'8''-C-87, agency: KMG Sports Management). He is a underdeveloped giant. He can run the floor for a big guy. He does a good job of getting rebounds when he is in the paint area. He needs to be developed. Robert Mitchell the former Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year looked solid in this game as well. It is clear he can compete on the professional level. He sees the floor very well and can defend many positions with his size and length.
Jason Stubbs (6'2''-G-86, college: Simpson (CA)) (18pts; 9rbs; 9ast) played and excellent game for the winners.
He was all over the floor and made some excellent decisions and used his strength and athleticism to attack the basket. He was one assist and one rebound away from a triple double.
He was the best player in the contest by far.
Solomon Tat (6'5''-G/F-86, college: Virginia) (20 pts) is a very strong athlete who attacks the basket very well and create fits for the opposing team. He is a very good candidate for teams in Europe looking for a quality Contonou player.
Denarryl Rice (6'0''-G-83, agency: Prossin Sports Management, college: Arkansas Tech) (18pts; 4ast) the super quick guard out of Detroit look great and had his best game of the ESL. He used his excellent dribble penetration skills to create offense for his teammates and himself.
Stan Johnson (6'7''-F) (17pts; 5rbs) played a very good all around game and got the attention of a few scouts.
Akeem Scott (6'1''-PG-83, agency: Interperformances, college: High Point) the player who won a championship in The Finnish League a few years ago put in a serious performance. He had 25-points, 6-rebounds and 6-assists as he controlled the tempo for his team but attack the paint relentlessly. The kid is a great prospect for mid level teams in Europe.
Tim Parham (6'9''-F/C-83, college: Md-Eastern Shore) (18pts; 14rbs) was solid in the paint area as he scored and rebounded extremely well. Tim can play for a lot of teams in Europe looking for a solid 4/5.
James Crowder (6'7''-F-86, agency: Agency No 10, college: Pfeiffer) (16pts; 9rbs) had a nice all around game scoring and rebounding as well.
Game MVP goes to Manchesters Jason Stubbs (6'2''-G-86, college: Simpson (CA)) with 18-points, 9-rebounds and 9-assist

Game 7

Zurich 93 - APSE Venice 89
Former NBA player and coach Phil Hubbard and the current coach of the Gary Splash Jay Bradford brought their teams into the semi-finals game undefeated.
This game was an exciting contest as the game went into double overtime and featured some very intense play.
Both teams competed at a high level and made key shots in crunch time.
APSE Venice seemed to have the interior advantage as their big guys dominated inside.
However the defensive pressure and excellent defense from the Zurich team kept them into the game.
In the first half, Terrell Bell was the stand out player and ended the game with 19 points.
David Fisher (6'6''-F-84, agency: Prossin Sports Management, college: N.Mexico St.) was a beast inside and recorded 16 points and 13 rebounds.
The super quick and electrifying Michael Hunter scored 20 points and 10 assists for APSE Venice.
Brad Byerson (6'7''-F-85, agency: Global Sports Plaza, college: Virginia Union) had a nice all around inside game and scored 17 points and pulled 13 rebounds for the losing team.
Zurich featured seven players scoring double figures and excellent chemistry.
Jerrell Thompson (5'10''-G) (17pts; 6rbs; 5ast) was the guy in this contest and he displayed a great all around performance and lead his team to victory.
Justice Nall (6'6''-F, college: Mid-Continent) (14pts; 11rbs) played well notching a double double.
His teammate Frank Phifer (6'9''-C-80, college: Washburn) battled with the inside players of the Venice team and added a double double as well with 10 points and 10 rebounds.
Duncan Milne (6'9''-F-86) (10pts; 9rbs) looked good as he was one rebound away from a double double as well.
Trevor Bing (6'3''-G-85, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment) (12pts) played well as did Ryan Nelson (6'6''-G-87, college: Valdosta St.) (11pts) as both played contributed on both ends.
The first half was a low scoring contest and not a lot of offensive production.
As the game developed both teams picked up the scoring and increased their intensity. Both teams wanted to leave it all on the court to reach the Championship game as the APSE looked a little tired in the over time periods.
Coach Jay Bradford and Zurich advances to the championship game.

Game MVP goes to Jerrell Thompson (5'10''-G) with 17-points, 6-rebounds and 5-assist.

Game 8

Brussels 106 Dublin 74

The final game of the day 2 featured Coach Larry Lessett vs. Tunde Adekola .
In the first quarter the big guy Kenny Boyd (6'8''-C-82, college: Morehouse) went to work.
He is tough to defend because of his size, skills and footwork.
He can take big guys out to the perimeter and scorches them from 15-18 feet with a soft quality jump shot. He is a good European prospect.
He is so big a small version of Schortsantis of Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Bobby Nash (6'6''-G/F-84) (12pts) and Jessan Gray (11pts; 9rbs) were solid for the Dublin team.
Johnny Thomas (6'6''-F-87, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment) (19pts; 7rbs) is a very good European prospect. The kid is very athletic and can score the basketball.
Dijuan Harris (5'9''-G-86, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment, college: Charlotte) is a very quick and crafty PG with an excellent jump shot.
Dijuan was able to get in the paint and make good decisions with the ball.
He can also hit the long ball. Unfortunately, Dijuan didnt get to finish the game because of a dislocated finger. Harris would be a good player in France Pro B, Latvia, and leagues equivalent. Johnny Thomas was excellent in the first half. He was hitting shots from every area of the floor. I like his ability to hit the open shot.
Christian Simmons (6'5''-F-84, college: Bayreuth) (22pts; 8rbs) was simply outstanding in this game showing his nice all around game and excellent rebounding ability.
Coach Tunde Adekola got his team going in the second half. They went up by nearly forty. They cruised to the 5th place game tomorrow.
Game MVP goes to Christian Simmons (6'5''-F-84, college: Bayreuth) with 22-points and 8-rebounds.

Game 1:
Brussels 85 - Zurich 93
The very first game of the day began with former assistant coach of ULM Basket Tunde Adekola and IBL coach Jay Bradford . Early on, the 611 center Phil Jones (6'10''-C-85, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment, college: Charlotte) looks very impressive. He had some nice post moves (good right hook) and block shots for Brussels. He can also step out and shoot the 3-ball. Any team looking for a big that has post play, can rebound and can extend the defense, this is a good buy. He can play LEB Gold, France Pro A or leagues equivalent. Johnny Thomas (6'6''-F-87, agency: ARN Sports and Entertainment) looks like a pro. He has a nice body, long arms and is very athletic. He can play the 3 and 4 in Europe. He is a strong player that can shoot the long ball and can create off the dribble. He would be a good player for France Pro A, Italy A2 or leagues equivalent. In the first half, coach Tundes team held a nine-point advantage. Rob Eldridge (6'2''-G-87, college: Florida Southern) was the most productive player for Zurich. He was aggressively attacking the rim. He is a strong combo guard that has creative moves getting to the basket and can consistently make the mid range shot. He has a way of getting fouled and getting to the line. Robert could compete in leagues like Israel, France Pro B and leagues equivalent. Duncan Milne (6'9''-F-86) looks like a good Power Forward as well. He can spread the floor with his shot and he knows how to play the game. He has a good motor and he is tough. He would be a good player for Germany 1st division, Switzerland and leagues equivalent. Trever Bing is a solid point guard. He can control the game.

Game 2

APSE Venice 79 Dublin 75
Game (2) was coached by Dublins Larry Lessett and Venices Phil Hubbard
The game was a great contest that went back and forth until the final couple of possessions.
The difference in the game was the interior power of the APSE Venice team.
They dominated the offensive glass and their big guys passed the well late in the forth quarter when the game was on the line.
Dublin had a lot of talent and a few guys stepped up and made some critical plays in crunch time but could not get over the hump.
Terrell Bell (6'6''-G/F-89) stepped up big for APSE Venice in the fourth quarter and made some dagger shots.
At first glance the two players looked most impressive were Brad Byerson (6'7''-F-85, agency: Global Sports Plaza, college: Virginia Union) and Kenny Boyd (6'8''-C-82, college: Morehouse). Brad a strong and aggressive undersized center has great footwork and a good motor.
He is very athletic around the rim and an excellent rebounder. He blocks shots well and he has crafty moves in the paint. Kenny Boyd (6'8''-C-82, college: Morehouse) is a 69 center with very good low post ability. He is a good rebounder and runs the floor well for his size with soft hands.
The point guard match up was very intriguing as both players have excellent speed, quickness and serious dribble penetration skills.
Vincent Goldsberry (6'0''-PG-89) and Michael Hunter (5'10''-PG, college: Cal-Irvine)r played great for their respective teams.
They both pushed the tempo for their team. Vince was solid for his team on both ends of the floor.
Terrell Bell (6'6''-G/F-89) is a player that can play the 1,2 and 3. He can handle the ball, knows how to create a shot for himself and his team. He can also play the pick and roll. Terrel would be a great player for France Pro B, Germany and leagues equivalent.
Jabril Banks (6'7''-F-87, college: N.Colorado) showed skills to be a solid small forward. He has excellent foot work in the post. He sees the floor well while he is making his moves, he has great decision-making when he is making his move and he is a very good passer. Rebounding and defending is also a strong trait of his. Jabril could compete in Switzerland, France B or leagues equivalent.
Terrell Bell (6'6''-G/F-89) was the game MVP with 23-points and 10-rebounds. Kenny Boyd (6'8''-C-82, college: Morehouse) respectfully had 17-points and 10-rebounds.

Game 3

Geneva 88 - Union Monaco 104
Game (3) featured two seven footers with serious size.
The 7'8' Paul Sturgess (7'8''-C-87, agency: KMG Sports Management) and the 7'3' Jermaine Middleton (7'3''-C, college: Northwood Fl.) occupied lots of space in the paint but have a lot of room to develop as professional players.
The Union Monaco team was too deep and scored lots of transition points against Geneva.
They were up by 18 points early in the game but Geneva coached by Mike Taylor (agency: Pro One Sports ) made an impressive comeback.
However they just did not play good enough to stay in the game against Union Monaco.
Dawson Eric (6'10''-F-84, college: Midwestern St.) (6'10''-F-84, college: Midwestern St.) looked like the best player in the building with his nice all around game. His ability to handle the ball at 69 gives him an advantage against most power forwards. He can spread the floor and shoot the long ball. He has post moves as well. He could play some minutes at the 3. He is a versatile player. He could play immediately in France Pro A, Italy A1 and LEB Gold.
Akeem Scott (6'1''-PG-83, agency: Interperformances, college: High Point) is a nice floor general and displayed pro experience in this game as well. Kiwan Smith (6'7''-F-87) showed he could play professionally with his high energy and athleticism. He is a very athletic wing player that can play the power forward position.
Tracy Robinson (6'7''-F-87) played well with 17-points and 9-rebounds.
Dawson Eric was the game MVP with 25-points and 6-rebounds. Akeem Scott had 21 respectfully.

Game 4
Lugano 126 Manchester 83
Game (4) had former professional player Lewis Lofton coaching the Manchester team. Glen Hayes the former ESL Coach of the Year was in charge of the talented Lugano team.
The Lugano team played and excellent pressure zone defense that lead into lots of turnover and transition points and ran Manchester out of the gym.
A guy that is no stranger to the ESL, Marcel Anderson (5'9''-PG-86, college: Harris-Stowe St.) got off to a good start in the game He had a couple of early steals, which ended in dunks and two back to back 3pt shots. Another player that stood out in the game was 2011 NAIA Player of the Year Justin Johnson (6'2''-PG-88, college: Concordia Irvine)
He is a true point guard with a very high basketball IQ. He was very efficient with all of his shots made early on.
Any teams looking for a true point that can really pass, shoot and is a winner in France Pro B, Switzerland or leagues equivalent, this is your guy.
Coach Glen Hayes had his team playing well as they controlled the first half with a 15 point lead.
His enthusiasm from the sidelines transferred over to his team on the floor.
Andrew Schroeder (6'9''-F) looked very good for his team. He was solid on the block and grabbed many rebounds around the rim.
Robert Mitchell (6'6''-F-86) looked like a pro for Manchester. He has a really good shot (midrange). He is a big guard that can play either the 1,2 or 3 positions. He also has a high basketball IQ.
Dustin Mitchell (6'9''-F/C, college: WiscKing.-Whitew.) former ESL Las Vegas All Tourney player had his game going in the first half.
Dustin has a great shot, he has really good post moves on the low post and he is an excellent rebounder. He is a double-double guy that can play in France Pro A, Germany 1st Division and leagues equivalent.
Justin Baker (6'7''-F) played very well and featured a nice mid range shooting touch and great rebounding skills.
Allen Durham (6'6''-F) was a monster on the offensive boards for Lugano.
Lindsey Hughey (6'3''-G-89) was terrific in the second half. He connected on a couple of 3pt shots and had some strong penetration moves towards the rim.
With 2 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, coach Glen Hayes team had a commanding lead 98-63. It was all do to his energy and communication with his players. In the end Lugano easily moves on to the semi-finals game.
Noah Gottlieb (6'1''-G-88) played well in the first half for the losing team but displayed some fine point guard skills.
MVP of this game was Justin Johnson with 18-points, 9assist and 6 rebounds. Marcel Anderson also had 19 points and 9-assists.

Eurobasket Summer League 2011 Chicago Day 3 - July 3, 2011

Eurobasket Summer League Chicago

Day 3

7th Place:
Berlin 67 Madrid 71
The first game of the day hosted the two teams without a win in the three days of competition. LaPhonso Ellis Jr. (6'3''-G-87, college: Greenville) (Son of the LaPhonso Ellis Jr. that played in the NBA for many years) started the game with a lot of aggression. He was determined to get a win for his team. He had some really nice moves towards the basket and a couple of shots from downtown. Pierre Glover for Madrid played solid as well. He was consistent the entire weekend for his team. The effort of Ellis and Pierre gave team Madrid their first win of the week.

5th Place Game:
Athens 104 Amsterdam 99
Game two had pros on both teams. Emmanuel Little (6'5''-F-85, college: N.Dakota) (24pts), Julian Harris (5'10''-G-89, college: Menlo) (26pts), and Chris Staples (6'5''-F) (23pts) all had great games in game (2).
Emmanuel Little has already had professional playing experience. He is a high quality athlete. Any teams looking for an athletic wing player in France Pro A, Italy A2 or Germany Emmanuel is a good choiceJulian Harris is a quick point guard with great court vision. He has a high basketball IQ. He knows when to shoot and when to pass to get his teammates involved (great decision making). I can see him playing well in Germany, France Pro B, and Switzerland. Likewise, Chris Staples, a player that WOW us this week with his impressive dunks. He was by far the most explosively athletic player in Chicago. He can play in Germany, France Pro B, and Switzerland. Athens cruised to a late game victory behind their leader Emmanuel Little.
Aaron Hall (6'2''-G) (19pts) also played well in this contest and shows that he is a quality power wing.

Athens: 104
Richard England: 7pts; 2rbs; 1ast
Calvin Wooten: 7pts; 3rbs; 3ast

Djvon Simpson: 6pts; 2rbs
John Head (6'5''-G/F-86, college: Peru St.): 16pts; 8rbs; 3ast


3rd Place Game
Rome 94 London 90
In game (3) Darryl Garrett (6'4''-G) (22pts) continued to show he could compete on the professional level. A 64 point guard, with the ability to create for himself and the group, he is a solid guard. His height gives him the ability to see over the defense and his length allows him to finish in paint on the big guys inside. I think he can play in leagues like France Pro B and Portugal. Marvin Walker (6'3''-G-89) (17pts in the second half) had another solid performer in this game. He didnt have a big offensive output, but you can see in his game the he is a pro. He is a strong point guard that gets after it on the defensive end. He can score, hes athletic and he has a high basketball IQ. It is clear why he was the ABA rookie of the year in 2010-11 season. Marvin can make a big impact in France Pro B, Germany and leagues equally talented.
Rome also had help from other double digit contributors Marcus Jackson (6'5''-G/F-81, college: Benedictine) (11pts); Marques Ewell (5'10''-G) (10pts); Karim Torres (13pts).
Mike McKinney (6'4''-G-85, college: N.Illinois) had another nice offensive performance notching 19pts in a quite way. Donovan Monroe (6'1''-G-88) had his best performance of the event unleashing 18 points in an all around offensive display.
Tawrence Walton (6'6''-F) looked good again showing that he is an athletic wing who can really score; he had 17 points in the contest.

Rome: 94
Marvin Walker (6'3''-G-89): 15pts; 8rbs; 7ast; 4stl

ESL Chicago Championship game:
Paris 105 Warsaw 101
The Championship and final game in Chicago was with Donnie Boyce (6'5''-G-73, college: Colorado) team vs. Marcel Anderson (5'9''-G-86, college: Harris-Stowe St.), Andrew Fair and company.
In the first half Warsaw was in control of the game and at one time held an 18 point lead.
Mr. Fair got his team off to an early advantage with a couple of steals and two-transition assist. However, Tyrone Kent (6'5''-G/F-86, college: Toledo) was just too much for Paris. He killed this event the last few days and he didnt stop in the Championship game. He was unstoppable in this game. He had 6 steals and 20 points in the first half. His professional experience was clear because he was miles above all of the competition on hand. Tyrone Kent/a> can play in France Pro A, Italy A1 and other leagues equivalent. The game got competitive again when Andrew Fair checked in. With his defensive presents the lead was cut from 12 to a 3-point lead for Warsaw. Justin Taylor (6'3''-F) connected on a couple of 3s to tie the game 62-62 with six minutes to play.
The entire Paris team played collectively well offensively and the excellent penetration by the guards always resulted in a lay up or open shot.
However the majority of their points in the second half came off of turnovers and transition buckets.
The Warsaw team was rattled by the pressure defense of the quicker team.
The game went back and forth late in the third. Exactly the way a Championship game is supposed to go. Coach Steve Taylor put together an excellent second half tactic to press full court. That tactic gave his team with a 9-point advantage with six minutes left to play in the game. The game ended with Mr. Fairs team on top. As the saying goes, the cream will always rise to the top. He led his team to a Championship victory. Andrew is a quality point guard with excellent defensive ability. He is a leader that can compete in France Pro A, Germany and Italy A2.

The final day at Attack Athletics was very exciting and hosted some fine individual performances.

LaPhonso Ellis Jr. had a big time game as his father LaPhonso Ellis (6'8''-F-70, college: Notre Dame) the former NBA was in the stands watching his son.

The biggest surprise of the day was the shocking defeat of Warsaw which feature the majority of professional players.

The Paris team quickness, intensity and pressure defense created dozens of turnovers which was the difference in the game.

Eurobasket Summer League 2011 Chicago Day 2 - July 2, 2011 r>
Eurobasket Summer League Chicago

Game 1:
Athens 112 Berlin 95
The first game of the day was evenly matched. Both teams lost on day one. This game had a playoff feeling as Athens defeated Berlin.
Emmanuel Little (6'5''-F-85, college: N.Dakota) separated himself from the pack with a 25pts; 8rbs and 5stl performance as he did in the first day.. He is a great player in transition. He has a high percentage finishing around the rim. I like his ability to attack the rim and his basketball IQ. It is clear that he has professional experience. Emmanuel can compete now in countries like France Pro A, Italy A2 and Germany. Other players that have pro-potential in this game are Chris Staples (6'5''-F) an explosive athletic wing player that can play in Germany 2nd Division, Switzerland and Finland and Aaron Hall (6'2''-G, college: C.W. Post) who had a monster game with a 30pts, 10rbs and 6ast performance. He is a big guard that can play in Germany 2nd Division, Finland and Portugal.
Jarvis Hill (6'2''-G-86) had a quality game scoring 17 pts and Antonio Griffin (6'6''-G/F-84, college: CSU Bakersfield) played very well scoring 16 pts and 7rbs.
Modestas Mosulin shot the ball extremely well and pitched in 18 pts in the contest.

Game 2
Amsterdam 84 - Madrid 83
Game two feature three of the players that played well yesterday; Julian Harris (5'10''-G-89, college: Menlo), Mitchell Carter (6'10''-C) and Marcel Anderson (5'9''-G-86, college: Harris-Stowe St.).
Julian (16pts; 8ast) didnt have the impressive offensive out put as he did yesterday, but he showed that he is a solid pro. He controlled the tempo for his team and scored when he needed to. He is a very good point guard. I think Julian fits well in leagues like Germany, Italy A2 and France Pro B. Mitchell Carter (14pts; 8rbs) was solid as well. Again not as many points but he showed his excellent footwork in the post area. He has all the moves you want from a big guy in the post. He would be great for LEB Gold, Pro A France and Germany. Marcel Anderson won the game for Amsterdam with is unstoppable penetration and his ability to get steals and get out on the break. Marcel is a great guard for Lithuania, France and Germany. He scored 29pts; 7rbs and 7stl in day two.
However the story for Madrid was Obinna Agomo (6'3''-G-88, college: Greenville) the player with the Nigerian passport who can play as a Contono player all over Europe was very impressive and athletic. He scored 26pts and had 11 rebounds and raised the eyes of the Lithuania scouts in attendance.
Wes Smith (6'3''-F) had an excellent game for Madrid as he pitched in 18pts and 7rbs.

Amsterdam 84

Game 3
Rome vs. Warsaw
In game Warsaw featuring ex NBA player Donnie Boyce team was put to the test in the first half by a game team from Rome.
However the depth and talent of the Warsaw team featuring mostly professional experience players were too much to deal with.
Tyrone Kent (6'5''-G/F-86, college: Toledo) (6'5''-G/F-86, college: Toledo) was unstoppable and maybe the best player in the Chicago event.
This athletic wing can shoot, create and finish with the best of them and should be back in Europe playing in a quality league.
He scored 25 pts in a variety of ways.
Casey Love (6'9''-C-80, college: Robert Morris) (18pts; 10rbs) the inside highly skilled big man has an amazing mid range jump shot and great foot work in the post area. He has experience internationally but would be perfect for a team looking for a scoring low post presence in Europe. The big kid from Chicago can definitely play.
Brandon Watkins (6'0''-G-81, college: Penn St.) (18pts; 6ast) is a crafty quick PG that can really shoot the ball and control a team. He has experience in Europe and its showing at the ESL event.
Stanley Thomas (6'5''-G/F-80) was the ex-factor in the game because every time Rome made a run he score at key times as his team was always in control. Stan is an excellent scoring big guard who shoots the ball extremely well and creates off the dribble well.
Marvin Walker (6'3''-G-89), the ABA rookie of the year, put on a impressive performance for Rome. Against a really stacked team, he kept his team in the game with his all around ability. At 63 he can block shots, rebound, and he is a very athletic guard. He can compete on the professional level in France Pro B, Germany and Switzerland.
Darryl Garrett (6'4''-G) of Rome has lots of talent and is super creative off the dribble and scored 19 pts.
Marcus Jackson (6'5''-G/F-81, college: Benedictine) had an excellent game as he scored 18 points and 12 rebounds displaying an awesome mid range jumper. The kid can play somewhere in Europe and would be perfect for the BBL in England.
John Harver shot the ball well from deep as he connected with four 3pt shots during the game.

Game 4
Paris 76 London 73
The last game of day two was pretty intense. Both teams did their best to advance to the finals.
Again, Andrew Fair game was on full display. He is pesky tough guard.
His defensive intensity and his ability to lead his team helped Paris take an early lead in the game.
In the second half John Park looked really impressive for London.
Late in the game, when the game was on the line, Senario Hillman (6'1''-G-88) woke up.
He made some explosive moves to the basket to give his team a slight lead with 15 seconds left.
This was probably the best game of the day and ended on a couple of errors from the London team.
Paris had great team chemistry and played smarter during crunch time.
Justin Taylor (6'3''-F) (16 points) had an outstanding game offensively for Paris and had a key forced jump ball in the final minutes.
Jarvis Walker played extremely well in the second half as he poured in all of his 12 points in the period.
Octreyvius Roebuck (6'7''-F) had another solid performance for the Paris team that will be featured in the ESL Championship on Sunday.
Mike McKinney (6'4''-G-85, college: N.Illinois) scored very well for the London team and led them with 17 points.

A summary of day two in the ESL Chicago event must mention Obinna Agomo (6'3''-G-88) big time performance of 26pts and 11 rebounds.
This kid is very athletic and works extremely hard on both ends. He is a very intriguing prospect as a Contono player in Europe.
Justin Taylor (6'3''-G-85, college: Georgetown, KY) (6'0''-G-88) played very well for the Paris team and is a very talented combo guard who has nice athleticism, jump shot and plays great defense.


Eurobasket Summer League 2011 Chicago Day 1 - July 1, 2011

2011 Eurobasket Summer League

The first day of the ESL 2011 Chicago event was a great turnout and featured some nice talent.
Some of the players were quite nervous and the team chemistry was lacking for some teams.
The collection of coaches was high quality as the event has coaches from Germany, Lithuania, Ukraine, IBL and the ABA.
Many agents were on hand and a few international scouting services were Attack Athletics.

Game 1:
Rome - Berlin 72-67

The first game got off to a sloppy start. Both teams seemed to settle down in the second. As the game went on, Darryl Garrett (6'4''-G) seemed to emerge from the rest. He led Rome to a 19-point advantage midway through the first. Darryl Garrett (6'4''-G)t is a big guard. He sees the court very well. Likes to create for his teammates. Could compete in Pro B France or Portugal. Berlin had trouble getting into the game because they were playing a little too selfish. Antonio Griffin (6'6''-G/F-84, college: CSU Bakersfield) looked impressive for Berlin. He has a controlled game. Shoots high percentages from the line and could make an immediate impact in lower divisions like Switzerland, Finland and France pro B. As game 1 came to an end two players showed pro potential; Darryl Garrett (6'4''-G)t and Antonio Griffin (6'6''-G/F-84, college: CSU Bakersfield).

Game 2:
Warsaw - Athens 108-98

Game 2 was a much better game. Head coach of Warsaw, Donnie Boyce former NBA player and current NBDL assistant coach, had a team of pros. The one that stood out was 68 Mike Hart. He is an explosive big with great athleticism. He plays above the rim, can block shots and rebound. He could play in France Pro B, Top level Germany and Italy A2. Another solid player in this game was Scott Buschman (6'7''-F, college: Viterbo). He is an athletic that will compete on both ends of the floor. I like his ability to create his own shot and his motor. He has a nice body and knows how to play the game with or without the ball. Unfortunately, he got hurt late in the game. So it is unsure if he will play Day 2.
Emmanuel Little (6'5''-F-85, college: N.Dakota) a former ESL All Tourney player showed his pro game. Emmanuel is a wing player that likes to aggressively attack the basket. He is a good defender and likes to get out on the break after a defensive stop. He would be a good player in France Pro A, Italy A2 and Germany.

Game 3:
Paris - Madrid 106-98

In game 3 there was one player that truly stood out. Mitchell Carter (6'10''-C) is a 611 big guy. He has great footwork. He is a solid defender, good shot blocker and he has a nice touch around the rim. He can even step out to hit the 15-foot jump shot. From what I have seen so far, he is the best player in the gym. Any team looking for a big that can score, this is a good buy. He would be a good player for LEB Gold, Pro A France, Israel and Germany. Andrew Fair is a very good point guard. He turned the game around with his defensive tenacity. He was one assist shy of a triple double. He hit shots, made plays for his teammates and made great decisions with the basketball. He is a true point guard. His biggest attribute is his will to win. He can play in Switzerland, Portugal, and Germany Pro B.

Game 4:
London - Amsterdam 114-102

This was a back and forth game where Amsterdam controlled the first half with spectacular play from Marcel Anderson (5'9''-G-86, college: Harris-Stowe St.) and Julian Harris (5'10''-G-89, college: Menlo)
Marcel Anderson is our returning MVP from last years Chicago event. He is the quickest and fastest player here. He can get anywhere on the court. He makes solid decisions and is an excellent defender.
Julian Harris the NAIA All American from Menlo College is a very good point guard.
His dribble penetration and decision making was impressive and he can shoot the ball very well from anywhere.
In the second quarter alone, he noted 20 points and 3 assist. He is a very good on the ball defender as well.
During the second half London went on a 16-2 run and controlled the rest of the game.
The reason why is combo guard Senario Hillman (6'1''-G-88) took over the contest.
Senario dropped 15 points and 4 rebounds in one quarter of play in game 4. He is an athletic and very aggressive guard. A lefty that can do it all - shoot the mid range, long ball and is crafty when penetrating to the rim. He is more of a scoring off guard with an ability to run a team. He also sees the court very well. He is a pro! He can make an immediate impact in Israel, France Pro B, Germany and Italy A2.
Tawrence Walton (6'6''-F) of Chicago State had a very good game and was diverse in his scoring ability and very athletic.
Mike Stovall (6'5''-G/F) from Depaul University displayed some nice ball handling skills, scoring ability and great size/athleticism.
John Barber (6'7''-F-85, college: Youngstown St.) was also impressive on the boards and quietly had a very good game.

His other two team members who have European experience as well Tyrone Kent (6'5''-G/F-86, college: Toledo) and Brandon Watkins (6'0''-G-81, college: Penn St.) had big time games:
In the third game of the night Octreyvius Roebuck (6'7''-F) had an outstanding performance of 26 points and 12 rebounds featuring a nice al around game.
In the third contest as well Marcus Jackson (6'5''-G/F-81, college: Benedictine) featured a nice all around game and Obinna Ogono did as well..
