Big Shots Virginia Fall Hoopfest: 15U Takeaways

By Big Shots Nation 10/20/2020, 10:15am EDT

The Big Shots Virginia Fall Hoopfest brought out some talented 2023 prospects. Here’s a look at some of the biggest takeaways.

Strothers 2023 goes 2-0 

The 2023 class in Virginia holds quite the talent pool led by Etienne Strothers, younger brother of Allen Strothers, Anthony “AJ” Clark, Edward “EJ” Joyner and Dallas Kendall. Strothers was electric at the point guard spot dishing the ball and knocking down 3-pointers. He made three 3-pointers across their two victories. Clark finished with 10.5 ppg, showing off his length and ability to operate inside the arc. Joyner posted 11 points on three made 3-pointers in their first victory while playing up a division. He’s a member of Virginia’s 2024 class. Kendall showed off his length and prowess around the rim on both ends. He’s come along nicely in the frontcourt over the past few months.

Team Trezz shows off their depth

Team Trezz was another team that went undefeated on the day while showing off their depth. They were led by Deandre Lynch (11.0 ppg) as most of his points came off cleaning up the offensive glass. In the backcourt, Jamal Townsend (9.0 ppg) and Jordan Vick (8.5 ppg) stepped up when they needed to while Khyelle Ingram (9.0 ppg) showed he’ll be an impact player in the paint along Lynch. Johnathan Page (9.0 ppg) and Malik Hill (8.5 ppg) also did well spacing the floor and showing off their ability to step up and make an impact.

Virginia Havoc has some up and coming talent
 
Virginia Havoc went winless on the day, all of the single-digit variety but they had some talent on the floor. Myles Derricott was one standout performer for them. He put up 14.5 ppg while showing off his ability to score on all three levels. Jaiden Johnson showed it doesn’t take much for him to get going, posting 13.0 ppg, 15 points against Team Trezz. He’s a strong lead guard with a knack for making plays on both ends. Timayahs Bracey led the division with seven made 3-pointers on the day while averaging 12.0 ppg. He’s an emerging sharpshooter to watch.

Zion McDuffie shines with Grindhouse Lakers

Zion McDuffie was a top performer out of North Carolina with his ability to make plays at the rim on both ends. He finished second in the division in points per game (18.5) and first in total points after posting 33 points in a win over Peligro. He showed off his ability to get to the paint and the free throw line and has a willingness to defend the paint with his athleticism. He’ll be a name to know in the state of North Carolina for years to come.
 

Big Shots Virginia Fall Hoopfest: 16U Takeaways

By Big Shots Nation 10/20/2020, 10:15am EDT

The Big Shots Virginia Fall Hoopfest brought out some emerging 2022 prospects due for some breakout performances. Here’s a look at some of the biggest takeaways.

Team22 Makes an Impact

Team22 was a team at the 16U level that turned heads led by Nicholas Booker and Reuben McEachern in the backcourt and Maddax Evans, Teven Smith and Daniel Heitman on the wings. They were a team that got after it on the defensive end and played team ball to get two wins on the day. Booker put up 14.5 ppg while Smith posted 12.5 ppg and Evans chipped in with 8.0 ppg. They’re a talented squad with some prospects to keep an eye on in Virginia’s 2022 class.

Team Richmond Select makes a successful return 

Team Richmond Select had a productive day in their return to the Big Shots stage, finishing 2-0 on the day led by Gray Proffitt (16.0 ppg) and Rival Axselle (11.5 ppg). Proffitt is an underrated wing prospect that can get to the rim and finish with authority and also dial it up from deep. He knocked down two 3-pointers on the weekend. Axselle is a relentless guard that never stops moving when he’s on the floor and always finds a way to get easy layups as a cutting threat.

Footprint Basketball boasts quite the trio

Footprint Basketball had a solid outing at the Big Shots Virginia Fall Hoopfest, going 2-0 on the day behind the play of Zach Smith, Isaiah Griffin, Kyle Ferguson and Tayshaun Butler. Griffin took home MVP honors in their opening win of the day, showing off his ability to get to the paint and finish in traffic. Smith put up 13 points in their second victory of the day to lead the way in the paint. Ferguson was right behind in the victory with 11 points while Butler chipped in with seven points. They’ve got some emerging talent to keep an eye on in the state of Virginia.

BWSL Pace squad boasts some talent

BWSL Pace squad didn’t get a victory on the day but they did have a few prospects in Troy Giles and Jadon Pace. Pace is a lengthy wing that gets after it on defense and can shoot the 3-ball when given chances. He knocked two 3-pointers to open the day. Giles finished the day with 14 points, showing off his ability to score on all three levels. He knocked down two 3-pointers and got to the rim when given opportunities.

Amare Kennedy coming along with WV Reign

2022 guard Amare Kennedy is really coming along in the backcourt for West Virginia Reign. Kennedy posted 27 points including nine made free throws in their victory to close out the day for his squad. He’s an efficient scoring guard when he’s dialed in and has been showing his stuff on the Big Shots stage in the last few events. He’s one to watch in West Virginia’s 2022 class.
