2013 Aaron and Andrew Harrison – Houston Defenders – Houston played DC Assault in one of the championship games on Sunday. Similar to Friday, the twins didn’t have excellent offensive showings but are a treat to watch. So much athleticism and will throw down anything close to the rim. Their jumpers weren’t falling in any game I saw, but excellent form and release.
2013 Robert Hubbs – M33M – I got to watch M33M twice more today and I was glad I did. They won one of the championships and didn’t have a close game en route to the title. They blew out nationally ranked New Heights out of NY. Hubbs and Nichols were absolute beasts. Hubbs’s shot was falling all tournament. Hit several long range threes both off the bounce and from being spotted up. Could drive to the basket at any time. Great body control and touch around the basket allows him to finish almost every time he gets in the paint.
2013 Austin Nichols – M33M – Wow. Would probably be named the MVP of the tournament if they gave out such an award. Standing around 6’9″, Nichols can do it all. He dunks the ball any chance he gets and always finishes with authority. His jumper barely touched the rim all weekend and I can’t remember him missing but maybe one or two shots outside of 5 feet. A surprisingly good athlete, he finished several alley oops and pulled down double digit rebounds in each game. I’ve seen several of the top 2013 players between this and the Nike EYBL and he’s one of the best I’ve seen. He will be a major contributor the first day he steps on campus. Tennessee, Memphis and Oregon head coaches were at every game.
2015 Skal Labissiere – M33M – Another stud in the class of 2015. Skal is a slender 6’10″ but very skilled. Hit several threes but not afraid to mix it up inside. As he continues to gain weight, he will a major recruit. The city of Memphis has a never ending abundance of talent.
2013 Nate Britt – DC Assault – Britt lead his team to one of the titles with a win over the Houston Defenders. Britt is a great floor general with good all around game. Didn’t get to the rim a lot in the finals because of the size and strength of the Harrisons but was able to get teammates involved and knock down several outside shots to get his team the victory.
