BP's Atlanta Jam Day 2 Notebook
After watching the 14 and 15Us yesterday, I spent day 2 at SSA taking in the upperclassmen. I walked away impressed by one of the top unsigned seniors in the country and a junior that I think could be the best player here. I'll dive into my takeaways below.
The two 30-point performances came from two of the best players in attendance. Jaborri McGhee, who is one of the top available seniors after his recent decommitment from Tennessee Tech, put on one hell of a show. He erupted for 33 points, which all seemed to come very easy for him - even the tough buckets. I saw a tweet that mentioned he only missed two field goal attempts. I'm not quite sure if that was completely accurate, but I would not be surprised if it was. It seemed as if every shot he took was going to go in.
Jayden Harris of Team Wall's 16U group looked like a star. A versatile wing with nice size and length, and a hell of a 3-point shot. In the first half alone, he knocked down five triples. He finished the game with 30 impressive points. Not only can this kid get the ball in the basket, but he was a menace defensively, too. His active hands and feet combined with his length enabled him to be very disruptive.
Loyalty United Duo
This Loyalty United team out of Florida is solid. They picked up two good wins today behind the production of Mason Sword and Grant Chamberlain. Chamberlin has a really nice stroke from three and can put it on the floor too. Sword is a strong, physical player that has the ability to dominate the paint with his motor. The duo combined for 69 points on the day. Chamberlin knocked down seven 3-pointers.
One Shot Shooters Continue to Impress
The One Shot Shooters are still undefeated in HoopSeen events this season. They looked really good as a whole in a win over a talented TSF Elite team. Douglas Liggion was back to his 3-point shooting ways, knocking down four. Legend Chisholm was also his usual, consistently productive self. This group has beaten a couple of really good teams throughout the Atlanta Jam and Tip Off.
