Bracket play tipped on Saturday as the Under Armour Summer Jam presented by NY2LA Sports rolled into its fourth day of action. A day and night of explosive matchups was highlighted by North Carolina bound lead guard Nate Britt who drilled a trey ball with three seconds remaining to lead the D.C. Assault past the Atlanta Celtics and on to Championship Sunday. We look at that and more in our look at day 4 of the 2012 UA Summer Jam…

Matt Thomas - 2013 - SG - Wisconsin Playmakers
6-4 - Onalaska HS - Onalaska, WI
Thomas shot the lights out Saturday morning pouring in 27 points, on nine three-pointers against Atlanta Xpress. The Iowa State commit couldn't miss in the first half, hitting his first six shots from the field.
T.J. Haws - 2014 - G - Utah Reign
6-3 - Lone Peak HS - Alpine, UT
Haws is a very crafty scorer that finds many different ways to get the ball in the basket. Haws doesn't need a lot of room to get a shot off and is also a very good passer. The BYU commit had two solid performances leading the Reign into the final eight.
Rashad Muhammad - 2013 -G - Las Vegas Prospects
6-5 - Bishop Gorman HS - Las Vegas, NV
Muhammad is a high flyer and uses his athleticism to make plays inside the paint. Once he gets into the lane, Muhammad finishes well over the defense, or has the vision to drop it off to a teammate. He had 26 points for the Las Vegas Prospects Saturday morning.
Michael Finke - 2014 - F - Peoria Irish
6-9 - Champaign Central HS - Champaign, IL
Finke had it going for the Irish on Saturday with 29 points. Finke is a big man that can shoot the basketball well from the mid-range. Finke also had a good day on the glass, collecting double digit rebounds.
Caleb Martin - 2014 - F - Team Loaded
6-6 - Davie County HS - Mocksville, NC
Martin collected 19 points for Team Loaded in their win Saturday night. Martin was dynamic in the open floor, catching passes on the break and finishing at the rim.
Damontre Jefferson - 2014 - PG - Milwaukee Rebels
5-7 - Hamilton HS - Milwaukee, WI
Jefferson had a good offensive performance against Team Loaded Saturday night, with 22 points. Jefferson knocked in a few three's, but scored most of his points in transition. Jefferson played very well down the stretch, and hit two big free throws to aid the Rebels in their one point victory.
Isaac Copeland - 2014 - G/F - Garner Road
6-10 - Miller HS - Raleigh, NC
Although he's 6-10, Copeland is a huge mismatch problem for the opposition with his ability to play on the perimeter. Copeland handles the ball well from beyond the arc and knocked down a few three's on his way to 20 points Saturday morning.
Rico Thompson - 2013 - PG - Kansas Select
6-0 - Stillwater HS - Stillwater, OK
Thompson had 20 points for Kansas Select in their win Saturday morning. Thompson has a knack for breaking his defender down off the dribble and weaving his way through traffic inside the paint.
Nick Allen - 2013 - PG - Milwaukee Spartans
5-11 - Marshall-Morse HS - Milwaukee, WI
Allen had it going Saturday morning with 29 points in his team's loss. Allen did a nice job creating his own shot off the dribble, despite tough defense from the Illinois Wolves.
Nicholas Noskowiak - 2015 - G - Wisconsin Playground Warriors
2015 - Sun Prairie HS - Sun Prairie, WI
Noskowiak is a big point guard that is often too much to handle on the perimeter. Noskowiak has the handles to beat his defender off the dribble, and once he gets into the paint, he's simply too big and strong for most guards his age. Noskowiak had 20 points for the Warriors Saturday morning.
Joseph Stamps - 2014 - PG - Team Rose
6-2 - Curie HS - Chicago, IL
Stamps did a good job at taking what the defense gave him Saturday night. He scored 23 points for Team Rose with three-point shots, and good drives into the lane.
Lamonte Bearden - 2014 - PG - Wisconsin Scholars
6-0 - Homestead HS - Thiensville, WI
Bearden is extremely difficult to contain out on the perimeter, which the Louisville Magic found out very quickly Saturday night. Despite Bearden facing double teams and the Magic packing the lane against him, Bearden scored 27 points, most of which came from the free throw line, after getting fouled on his drives. Bearden converted 18 of his 21 free throw opportunities.
Eric Mika - 2013 - C - Utah Reign
6-9 - Lone Peak HS - Alpine, UT
Mika was instrumental for the Utah Reign in their win over the Wisconsin Swing Saturday night. The BYU commit had 19 points, but played excellent defense on Indiana commit Luke Fischer, holding him in check.
Aaron Harrison - 2013 - SG - Houston Defenders
6-6 - Travis HS - Richmond, TX
Harrison scored 20 points in the first half for the Houston Defenders in their win against Full Package, finishing with 20 points in the game. Harrison also had a nice game for the Defenders in their close win over Kingdom Hoops. Harrison used his excellent ball handling to create just enough space for his signature pull-up three, throughout the day.
Kevon Looney - 2014 - SF - Milwaukee Rebels
6-8 - Hamilton HS - Milwaukee, WI
Looney had an absolutely huge day, scoring 50 points in two games, including a 30-point performance against Team Loaded to advance the Rebels into the final eight. Looney also had the game tying basket in that game with 20 seconds left.
Kendall Stephens - 2013 - SG - Illinois Wolves
6-6 - St. Charles East HS - St. Charles, IL
Stephens is beginning to get stronger as the tournament wears on for the Illinois Wolves. Stephens had 30 points through two games yesterday, as the Wolves advanced to the final eight. The Purdue commit had a lot of success in the catch and shoot game yesterday.
Nathaniel Britt - 2013 - G - D.C. Assault
6-1 - Gonzaga HS - Upper Marlboro, MD
Britt helped D.C. Assault make the final eight in a big way. The North Carolina commit hit the game winning shot against the Atlanta Celtics last night, hitting a three-pointer with three seconds left.
