VIRSHON COTTON – 2017 – PG
Stat Line – 7 points (3-9 FG), 3 assists, 1 rebound, 3 turnovers
Still struggled from the field but was more in control, made solid decisions at times on the offensive end, etc. Needs to improve his efficiency, reduce his turnovers, and improve his shot selection moving forward.
J.J. JOHNSON – 2016 – PF
Stat Line – 12 points (6-8 FG), 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 0 turnovers
Came up big in the second half with a number of big baskets. Showed solid instincts and a nice mid-range stroke to about 17 feet, attacked the glass, etc.

Stat Line – 10 points (5-10 FG), 4 rebounds, 2 blocks, 1 steal, 1 assist, 1 turnover
Finished around the basket, was active at times on the defensive end, etc. Would like to see him be more aggressive and active on both ends in the final week.

Struggled at times finishing but was active on the glass, was disruptive in challenging shots, and turned in a nice defensive performance. Needs to be more aggressive on both ends in the final week to take his game up another level.
MICHAEL FERRICI – 2016 – F
Stat Line – 7 points (3-6 FG), 4 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 turnovers
Was solid at times around the basket and on the glass but needs to be more aggressive and active as many do in the final week.
TEJON LUCAS – 2016 – PG
Stat Line – 5 points (2-5 FG), 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 5 turnovers
Made some nice plays and solid decisions but suffered from a number of passes that guys failed to catch and others didn’t finish on or he easily could’ve had 7-10 assists and only 1 or 2 turnovers. Would like to see him be more aggressive offensively in terms of attacking the rim and creating off his dribble penetration while also stepping up his activity on the defensive end of the floor in the final week.
NICK LOKE – 2016 – G
Stat Line – 12 points (5-8 FG), 1 steal, 3 turnovers
Was impressive in terms of attacking the rim and finishing with consistency but needs to work on being more active and productive in terms of his overall floor game and on the defensive end of the court as well in the final week.
JORDAN POOLE – 2017 – G
Stat Line – 11 points (4-9 FG), 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 turnovers
Showed nice range from beyond the arc (i.e. 3-4 from the 3 point line) and made some solid decisions as well. Needs to step up his activity on the defensive end, mix in more playmaking with his scoring, and be more aggressive and active on both ends in the final week.
MYLES THOMAS – 2016 – SG
Stat Line – 15 points (4-7 FG), 2 steals, 1 assist, 1 rebound
Showed solid range, a knack for getting to the line, and delivered a solid efficient performance from the field as well. Made some nice things happen defensively. Would like to see him build on this and be more active and play harder on both ends in the final week.
DEREK THOMPSON JR. – 2016 – G/F
Stat Line – 6 points (2-6 FG), 4 rebounds, 2 assist, 1 steal, 5 turnovers
He made some solid decisions and at times guys failed to finish or missed his passes as well. Was active on the glass, showed solid awareness and playmaking potential, and found ways to finish on occasion also. Needs to be more assertive, active, and aggressive on both ends in the final week while improving his efficiency and reducing his turnovers.
