Day 4 at the annual NY2LA Sports Summer Jam saw bracket play heat up and some new names deliver high caliber efforts.  Here’s a look at some who stood out on Saturday in Wisconsin…

SUMMER JAM SATURDAY STANDOUTS 
PJ BARON – 2017 – F – CLUB 1 INDIANA LEGENDS

Baron is an undersized forward at 6’4, but the Carmel (IN) product is a good rebounder for his size and was very productive in an overtime win over Q6. Aside from his presence on defense and on the glass, Baron also scored 16 points including a few big baskets down the stretch. 

MARCUS CARR – 2017 – PG – STACKHOUSE ELITE NORTH
The 6’2 point guard from Montverde Prep has been playing at a high level throughout the Summer Jam, and brought his best on Saturday in a pair of Platinum Division playoff wins. Carr is creative with the ball in his hands, gets into the paint, pass and can also burn his opponent from three-point land. He scored a team-high 14 points against All In Y&R, including four free throws to ice the game and then got hot in the second half to help push his squad into the quarterfinals in a win over MN Fury. Carr missed the last high school season with an injury, but appears at full strength now and should see more high major offers continue to roll in. 

ONYINYECHI BROWN EYISI – 2018 – F – MBA HOOPS
The imposing Eyisi (6’10, Prolific Prep) looks the part playing up an age group at the Summer Jam. He is a project with plenty of room to improve, but he was able to finish a bunch of his chances in the paint against the Wisconsin Rap. He put in 21 points and his big and strong frame provided a tough interior presence defensively. Eyisi can move well for someone his size, and should have plenty of DI’s calling as he continues to become more comfortable and consistent on both ends.   

GREG FOSTER JR – 2018 – G – PLAYGROUND ELITE
Foster Jr. (6’5, Homestead) was knocking it in with consistency Saturday in a Platinum Division playoff win over the KC Keys. He is a threat to score the ball both from the perimeter, and driving to the hoop, but his playmaking skills also include setting up teammates for open looks – which he also did with consistency Saturday. With the length and athleticism to guard either guard position on the court, count on Foster Jr. to be a mid-major to high-major recruit by the time he’s done. 

RYAN KUTSOR – 2018 – G/F – KESSEL HEAT BLACK
The 6’3 wing from Lake Zurich came up with winning plays when in mattered most in a Platinum Division playoff win over a talented Wisconsin Swing squad. Kutsor plays primarily a forward role for Kessel Heat Black, but has guard skills with a solid feel for the game. He scored 12 points and hit four free throws down the stretch to ice the game in overtime Saturday. It’s hard to define Kutsor’s position on the court or how he projects as a college prospect at this point, but he seems to be in the right spot on both ends all the time making the right play. 

MITCH LISTAU – 2018 – PG – WISCONSIN SWING
Listau (6’4, Waunakee) and the Swing bowed out of the Summer Jam Saturday in an overtime loss to Kessel Heat Black, but he went down swinging with 28 points. With high majors already tracking his progress, Listau has performed well at the Summer Jam. Saturday he showed off his versatility scoring the ball, and with the lefty still developing physically he should become even more dangerous with the ball (and off it) over the next two years and beyond. 

ZACH MUNSON – 2018 – G/F – TEAM BLAZE
The 6’5 Guerin Catholic (IN) wing was gigantic in his team’s 2nd round win over the loaded Wisconsin Playground Warriors. Munson burned his opponents Saturday from downtown, and when his bigger defenders began to close out hard on him he was able to blow by and drive the ball to the rack for a layup. He is a skilled wing with shot making ability from all over the court worth tracking the remainder of the Summer Jam. 

VICTOR NWAGBARAOCHA – 2017 – G – WISCONSIN RAP
Milwaukee Pius’ 6’3 shooting guard brought the noise Saturday in a win over the loaded MBA Hoops squad. Nwagbaraocha scored a team-high 19 points, mostly on athletic drives and finishes and also had some success guarding high major recruit from Mississippi, Nick Weatherspoon. He also converted all his chances at the free throw line during crunch time as the Rap clinged onto a lead.  

TRISTAN SADLER – 2017 – PG – STACKHOUSE ELITE NORTH
Sadler has a slight build at 6’, but he brings toughness, quickness and a nice array of floaters in the lane to the court. On defense, he’s got quick feet and quick hands and was a pest on that end in a win against the MN Fury. He scored 14 points, including a pair of three-pointers. He and Marcus Carr will have a great test in Sunday’s quarterfinals against Howard Pulley’s Tre Jones and Brad Davison.  

TORRENCE WATSON – 2018 – G – JETS/RAMEY UNITED
Watson’s backcourt mate Courtney Ramey has enjoyed a big Summer Jam, and Watson has also been huge in their squad’s success. On Saturday, The 6’4 Whitfield High School product led the way in a Platinum Division playoff win with 14 points as well as a big presence on the defensive end. He also showed a willingness to crash the boards. 

DWAYNE WALKER – 2018 – G – PLAYGROUND ELITE
Walker is a smooth shooting lefty with deep range, and at the Summer Jam he’s been able to show off his stroke both off the catch and off the dribble. His shot-making ability helped Playground Elite pull away from the KC Keys Saturday in the Platinum Division playoffs. He continued his reliable shooting against Dreamvision later in the night, and also converted on some nice drives through contact. As he improves his handle and driving ability, the 6’3 guard from Macdowell Montessori should be a Division I recruit by the time he’s done in two years.
