Taggart impressed with defensive awareness. He utilized a combination of instincts and knowledge of the game to get steals and disrupt shots. Taggart also showed plenty on offense in terms of making smart passing reads and picking good times to score. He also proved to have terrific body control.

Mount Vernon had several representatives in the building, and Daniels was among the Mustangs in attendance. He showed plenty of ability as a multi-level scorer and excelled off the ball as a secondary playmaker. From the perimeter, Daniels was productive on drives to the basket. He’s a solid finisher at the rim and showed some shooting touch as well.

Douglas was one of the more physical guards I saw on Sunday. He plays with great energy and defends with intensity. His toughness and physicality allow him to guard multiple positions and stifle offenses on that end. On offense, Douglas is aggressive when he has the ball and attacks the rim with a purpose. He certainly doesn’t mind contact at the rim and can finish through bumps on drives.

Thompson is a solid guard who plays well both on and off the ball. He’s a patient driver and doesn’t get sped up. He dictates the pace of the game well. He plays with plenty of savvy and understands how to best position himself to succeed. Thompson led the offense well for stretches too. There’s a lot to like in him moving forward.

On the bigger end of guards, Walker is a versatile piece who can play multiple positions. He did a great job when it came to finishing plays around the basket. One thing that was noticeable about his game was his motor. Walker plays hard and battles on the glass. It was a nice outing for him.

Michelson has a really good feel for th game on both ends of the floor. He moves well without the ball on offense in order to free himself up for open looks and has a clean-looking jumper. He knows when to picks his spots as well. While he could have taken open shots, he knew to make the extra pass to get his team the best look possible. Michelson also showed plenty of competitiveness on defense.

Fife is an unselfish guard who looks to get his teammates the ball. He made some smart passes and good decisions on offense. Fife wasn’t afraid to take the open shot when he had it though. He also showed impressive competitiveness and coachability.
