Jamal Bieniemy - 2018 - G - Rytes Warriors
5-7/115 - Katy, TX
Bieniemy is a solid combo guard and an excellent shooter. He was exceptional on Sunday as he slashed his way to the basket, was active off the bounce, and knocked in some huge three-pointers to help preserve a victory late in the game.
Drew Blair - 2018 - SG - Wisconsin Playground Warriors
5-3/110 - Waterford, WI
Blair has deep range and will shoot it from just about anywhere on the court. Blair doesn’t need much room to get a shot off and is very accurate, a trait he displayed with consistency and dominance at times on Sunday.
Remontae Blakely - 2018 - F - Wisconsin Playground Warriors
5-9/140 - Milwaukee, WI
Blakely is strong down low and finished some tough shots in traffic. Blakely loves to get to the basket and is tough to stop in the paint. The talented wing excels in the open court and in transition, an asset he displayed once again on Sunday.
Jack Brady – 2018 – G – Wisconsin Scholars
5-5/125 – Brookfield, WI
The talented sharpshooting wing delivered a big performance in the opening session on Sunday as he drilled jumper after jumper in big situations in a solid performance. Has excellent range and a nice stroke, which he put on display during day 2.
Alonzo Chatman – 2016 – PF – Mac Irvin Fire
6-7/195 – Chicago, IL
Elevated his effort and activity on day 2 and the result was another stellar performance. Ran the floor well, was active on the glass, finished in transition, and scored around the basket. A strong day 2 effort to wrap a solid two day performance last weekend.
Ryan Clarey – 2016 – G/F – Pryzbilla Gents
6-0/165 – Pewaukee, WI
Played with more confidence on day 2 and he delivered a solid effort in the process. Has solid instincts and a nice feel for the game but his trademark is his ability to rip the nets from long range and that’s what he did on the final day.
Harrison Cleary - 2016 - G – Playground Elite
5-6/120 – Oak Creek, WI
Cleary had a very nice day, knocking in there-point shots and getting to the basket, finishing some tough drives while absorbing contact. The sharpshooting guard has really evolved the past 12 months and his stroke is one of the best around for incoming freshman in the region.
Ryan Coffey – 2017 – PF – RAS
6-1/150 – Wauwatosa, WI
A blue collar forward with instincts and skill, Coffey was active and dominant at times on day 2 as he delivered on the glass and in the paint with a strong second day performance.
Kaj Days - 2016 - F/C - Playground Elite
6-5/155 - Racine, WI

Tyrese Haliburton – 2018 – PG – Wisconsin Playground Warriors
5-7/120 – Oshkosh, WI
Rebounded from a subpar opening day to deliver his best performance on Sunday morning as he delivered solid passes in transition, scored off the bounce, and looked the part of the strong young floor general he’s regarded to be.
Willie Hill III - 2018 - G/F - Louisville Legends
5-10/125 - Louisville, KY
Hill II is long and handles the ball very well and is very strong with the ball in his hands. Hill II is outstanding on the defense end as well. On Sunday he delivered a solid performance that showcased his perimeter stroke beyond the arc and his ability to attack the rim off the bounce and finish or get to the free throw line with a high level of consistency.
Eden Holt - 2018 - PG - Rytes Warriors
4-10/85 - Katy, TX
Holt put on a show on Sunday afternoon, breaking down his defender and finishing some tough acrobatic lay ups in the paint. Holt can also surprise his defender with a quick trigger three-point shot and has the feel and instincts to deliver pinpoint passes in small spaces. He was stellar during the second half of day 2.
Gabe Kalscheur – F/C – Net Gain Sports
5-9/140 – Edina, MN
Delivered two solid performances again on Sunday as he showed a nice mid-range game, attacked the glass, finished around the basket, and brought solid activity and energy to the court on both ends.
Danya Kingsby – PG – Milwaukee Rebels
6-0/150 – Milwaukee, WI
Struggled in the morning but then delivered a strong effort on Sunday afternoon as he played to his strengths and let the game come to him.

Andrew Lewis - 2017 - SG - TP Elite
5-8/110 - Milwaukee, WI
Lewis was very good in the final game on Sunday at penetrating in transition with a lot of smooth finishes at the rim. His activity elevated on the final day and the end result was a dominant performance for the 2017 Camp MVP on the final day.
Quwan Marshall – 2017 – G – Arkansas Hawks
5-9/140 – Little Rock, AR

5-0/80 – Milwaukee, WI
Impressed on Sunday as he was more efficient with his decisions and found ways to attack the rim off the bounce and finish while also distributing the ball as well in transition and half court sets. A nice overall day 2 performance by the young lead guard.
Charles Moore – 2016 – PG – Mac Irvin Fire
5-8/135 – Chicago, IL
Delivered arguably one of the most dominant one day performances in camp history on Sunday as he was simply spectacular from start to finish. In the opening session he set the tone by scoring the first couple of baskets and it just continued throughout the day as he was active and disruptive on the defensive end of the court, he finished off the bounce with consistency, he knocked down mid-range shots, excelled in transition, and served up a number of jumpers from beyond the arc. An exceptional overall day 2 performance that helped him share camp Co-MVP honors for the 2016 class.
Anders Nelson – 2018 – PG – Net Gain Sports
5-3/95 – Edina, MN

Smith is very effective at catching the ball in the post and finishing down low. He has good hands, can run the floor, and is very athletic, making him tough to stop. He delivered a strong and dominant performance on Sunday in impressive fashion.
Lucas Wendt – 2016 – F – N/A
