The 2016 NY2LA Sports Summer Jam continued from Mequon Homestead High School on Saturday. As college coaches continues to pack the gym to watch some of the nation’s top travel programs and players, bracket play began to heat up prior to championship Sunday. Led by their stellar wing Musa Jallow, Team Blaze Select powered their way into the quarterfinals and look like a strong title contender.

Here are the top performers and stock boosters from day four…

TOP PERFORMERS
Isaiah Chandler – 2017 – F/C – Omaha Elite

Chandler continues to have a strong July and led Omaha Elite to the 17U quarterfinals. He scored 16 points in a win over the Wisconsin Swing on Saturday. Chandler is a terrific blend of size, strength, and finesse on the block. We raved about the way he moves at 6-foot-9, 250-pounds. Chandler has good post skills and better footwork on the block. He’s also an outstanding shot blocker and a very physical defender. Chandler is holding a couple of mid-major offers, but should definitely have more and garner high major attention as well. 

Pierre Crockrell – 2019 – PG – Dreamvision
Wise beyond his years, Crockrell is going to be a very good point guard going forward. The fresh faced sophomore plays up with Dreamvision and is often the straw that stirs the drink. Crockrell can score from the outside, dish the basketball, and defend. His passing ability is so good for somebody his age. Crockrell finds his teammates even at seemingly impossible angles. Also not afraid of the big shot, Crockrell hit a couple of late triples to help Dreamvision get past Playground Elite Saturday night. He finished with 15 points and a handful of beautiful assists in the win. 

Joey Hauser – 2018 – F – Iowa Barnstormers
Hauser scored 17 points in limited duty during a rout of Butler Elite. Hauser gets more intriguing every time we get eyes on him. The 6-foot-8 junior has come into the summer with much improved handles. He’s playing on the perimeter a ton this week and showing the ability to dribble drive all the way to the bucket. Pair that with his excellent low post skill set and footwork as well as his three-point shooting ability and Hauser is one of the most versatile prospects in the country. Hauser had 18 points in the Barnstormers’ Round of 16 win over Stackhouse Elite North later that night. 

Musa Jallow – 2018 – G/F – Team Blaze
Jallow was outstanding in Saturday’s upset win over the Wisconsin Playground Warriors. The 6-foot-5, 185-pound junior poured in 23 points, including a big scoring burst that helped jump start a huge second half run. Jallow has great athleticism and threw down some fantastic dunks in transition. He also showed the ability to hand and finish in traffic with a soft touch around the rim. Jallow is a versatile player that can defend almost anybody on the floor. He’s a decent shooter, but has been pretty much unstoppable this week attacking off the bounce from the perimeter, slashing from the high post, or cleaning up the offensive glass for put backs. In the Round of 16, Jallow went off again, flirting with a quadruple double, including blocks. The stock is definitely going to rise fast with this kid.  

David Jenkins – 2017 – PG – Team Bradley NW Panthers
Bradley and the NW Panthers went down to the Wisconsin Swing on Saturday, but Jenkins had a strong finish. Keeping his team close in a back and forth game, Jenkins drilled some clutch shots late. The 6-foot-0 senior is a terrific scorer off the bounce and isn’t fazed by a hand in his face. Jenkins is a good blend of speed and power at the guard spot and a very good teammate as well. While his scoring gets the headlines, Jenkins can also be very unselfish and makes good decisions with the basketball. He was in double figures during Saturday’s loss. 

Gabe Kalscheur – 2018 – SG – Howard Pulley
Another day, another big effort for Kalscheur. He scored 15 of his game-high 20 points in the first half during a blowout victory over Michigan Basketball Academy. Kalscheur is growing more confident is his drive ability and continues to turn heads with his play going to the rim. Also still shooting lights out from three-point range, Kalscheur had five triples in Saturday’s victory and he started the game with four consecutive makes from downtown. Kalscheur isn’t one of the headline names on this Howard Pulley team, but you wouldn’t know it by how he’s played this week. 

Chris Knight – 2017 – PF – Wisconsin Swing
The raw senior continues to have a strong week. Knight scored 12 points in a win over Team Bradley NW Panthers and made a ton of hustle plays that led to the victory. Knight is a terrific floor runner both ways and took a lot of points off the board by picking off passes and altering shots in transition. A kid that’s getting used to playing through contact, Knight took the ball hard into the defender’s chest all game and earned a lot of trips to the free throw line. Only 16 years old, Knight is a long, athletic forward with a ton of upside. 

Charles O’Bannon – 2017 – SG – Las Vegas Prospects
For the third-straight day, O’Bannon has put up numbers. The Las Vegas Prospects were on the verge of being upset by the Michigan Warriors and may have been if it wasn’t for O’Bannon. He scored a game-high 25 points in what was a contested game throughout. When the 6-foot-7 wing has it going, there’s nothing the defense can do but watch. O’Bannon has the tools, the size, and the athleticism to get any shot he wants and looks like a pro when he rises up to pull the trigger. One of the tougher matchups in the country, O’Bannon has lived up to the hype this week. 

Nick Weatherspoon – 2017 – G – MBA Hoops
This kid is just a play waiting to happen. Weatherspoon has a tremendous feel for the game as both a point guard and a shooting guard. A floor general and his team’s primary scorer, most guards struggle to handle both roles, but Weatherspoon does it like a pro. A great scorer, Weatherspoon gets it done at all three levels. The 6-foot-3 combo guard can even back people down in the post and put the ball in the hole fading away. Also a two-way player, Weatherspoon locks his man down defensively. He has some terrific strength and athleticism for his size and chased down a couple of blocks on Saturday. He finished with a game-high 16 points a win over Arizona Arsenal. 

STOCK BOOSTERS
Dylan Anderson – 2017 – G/F – Michigan Basketball Academy

Anderson is a kid with some bounce and he was able to make some plays against Howard Pulley during Saturday’s loss. The 6-foot-5 wing got up and down the floor in transition and played above the rim. Anderson is also a pretty good ball hander who’s got some shake and can run the fast break himself. Keeping his head up, Anderson also showed nice vision in the open floor and dropped off some good passes to his teammates. 

Antwaan Cushingberry – 2018 – PG – George Hill Rising Stars
Cushingberry is a speedy, tough guard that loves to play up and down. Even though he’s just 5-foot-8, Cushingberry is fearless going into the paint and has great body control and touch around the rim. Cushingberry is lightning quick with the basketball and doesn’t waste a lot of dribbles. Defensively, Cushingberry uses his quickness to get right up into the opposition and he’s nearly impossible to beat off the bounce. 

Raekwon Drake – 2018 – F – Kevon Looney Running Rebels
This prospect is getting better in a hurry. Drake is still very raw, but continues to add parts to his game. Drake is a long, explosive forward that plays above the rim on both ends. He’s a very exciting player in transition that can throw down some thunderous dunks. During Saturday’s win over the Michigan Gators, Drake blocked and altered a ton of shots, many of which seemed way out of his reach at the time. Drake showed an improved post game and the ability to hit the fade away jumper from the block. 

Sam Ingoli – 2018 – SF – Iowa Barnstormers
Ingoli has improved quite a bit since last year, especially on offense. The 6-foot-4 slasher can get to the hole at will, using his strong, athletic frame. He’s also a very good defender and not afraid to pressure all the way up the floor. Ingoli moves very well laterally for his size and has some intriguing tools to be a top notch defender on the perimeter. His outside shot is still coming along, but at 6-foot-4, 195-pounds, Ingoli doesn’t need to settle for jumpers a whole lot with his athleticism. Ingoli had two strong, all-around performances to help the Iowa Barnstormers reach the 16U quarterfinals. 

Keshawn Justice – 2018 – SF – Wisconsin Playground Warriors
Justice continued his breakout spring/summer and scored a team-high 17 points in a loss to Team Blaze. Justice is a consistent outside shooter who can get hot and stay hot, but also did some other things. Justice mixed it up and finished some impressive dribble drives in traffic. He took contact well at the rim and finished strong, something that’s been somewhat outside his comfort zone. With a shorthanded lineup, Justice was able to play a ton of minutes and help keep his team in the game, especially in the first half, scoring 14 of his 17. 

Ryan Martin – 2018 – SG – Kevon Looney Running Rebels
Martin was putting on a show during Saturday’s win over the Michigan Gators. A 6-foot-3 shooting guard, Martin is a sniper but has some deceptive athleticism as well. He’s a guy you can run through screes to hunt shots and clear out and let him go 1-on-1. Martin showed off some terrific handles in isolation settings and freed himself going to the basket. Also a reliable perimeter defender, Martin has a lot of intriguing tools to keep tabs on. 

Zach Munson – 2018 – G/F – Team Blaze Select
The sharpshooter out of Indiana had another good effort on Saturday. The 6-foot-5 sniper chipped in with 15 points in a win over the Wisconsin Playground Warriors, most of which came in the second half. Munson finally got loose and drained some big shots in the second half. Munson isn’t going to wow anybody with athleticism, but he’s got great size to be able to see over the top of the defense and do what he does best…shoot the basketball. 

Daniel Oturu – 2018 – F/C – Howard Pulley
With Theo John (ankle) out of the lineup, Oturu got the start and held his own. Oturu has played some fantastic basketball in spurts this travel season and did so again on Saturday. He compiled 14 points, seven rebounds, and two blocks in a win over Michigan Basketball Academy. Oturu was extremely active on both ends of the floor and showcased his high upside by snatching some fantastic rebounds away from his body. Still a work in progress offensively, you can’t question this kid’s effort. Oturu didn’t finish around the rim as well as he would have liked, but often bulled people in the paint to create his shot. Oturu can also do some stuff away from the basket and has a pretty decent turn-around jumper from mid-range. 

Brandon Wade – 2018 – G – Michigan Gators Elite
Wade went off and almost wouldn’t miss during Saturday’s loss to the Kevon Looney Running Rebels. The defense was draped all over him for much of the game and it didn’t seem to matter at times. The 6-foot-1 combo guard doesn’t need a lot of space to operate and can drain triples from way beyond the arc. Wade does a nice job of moving without the basketball and uses a series of fakes once he gets it to fire off a shot. He finished with a game-high 21 points in the loss.
