Harris Jr., Horton Tucker Produced in Our TBB Player Takeaways from The National Hoopfest

There were no shortage of division 1 prospects on hand at the National Hoopfest. EPLAY Sports provided the live stats as the fans were able to keep up with the numbers all Saturday. We give our 7 player take on our Saturday in Lancaster, TX.

Mike Miles, 2020 PG – Lancaster: Lancaster’s matchup was a good evaluation game for TBB prospect Mike Miles against Oak Hill. Defended by bigger, longer guards, the staff wanted to see if Miles would consistently generate a clean look and be effective and on Saturday he did. Mike got to the lane, finished against length and knocked down jumpers without being bothered by the contest. He produced 21 points and kept his team in the game.

Blake Hinson, 2019 CF – Sunrise Christian: Hinson is a mismatch problem with his size, strength and ability to space the floor. He led his Sunrise Christian squad in scoring with 22 and gave South Garland fits for four quarters.

Keyontae Johnson, 2018 Wing – Oak Hill: The strong, cut-up wing for Oak Hill value on the defensive side of the ball didn’t go unnoticed. Was active in help-side and kept up with the quick guards Lancaster possesses. Johnson added 27 points in the process as the Florida commit was effective on both ends of the floor.

Chris Harris Jr, 2019 SG – South Garland: Harris Jr. Couldn’t miss in the beginning of The Colonels outing vs Sunrise as he produced 10 of South Garlands first 12 points. Harris doesn’t need much space to get his shot off and his ability to get to the right spots on the floor allows him score. Finished with 19 points and the win on Saturday.

Larry Wise, 2018 Wing – Waxahachie: Wise produced what looked like an easy 12 point, 6 rebounds and 3 assists outing for Waxahachie. Wise is crafty around the cup and uses his length to make plays on both ends. The Indians ultimately lost to Chicago Simeon but Wise played an integral part in keeping his team within striking distance.

Jahmar Young, 2018 C – Desoto: Young was challenging everything at the rim and was aggressive as a help side defender. Whitney Young didn’t have anyone who could consistently match with the size and athleticism Young possess which warranted double teams on the talented post. Young finished with 20 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks.

Talen Horton-Tucker, 2018 Wing – Chicago Simeon: Tucker is strong, and used his size to bully his way into the paint on Saturday. He possess range on his jumper and concluded the night for Simeon with 23 points, 8 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 assists.
