He posted 15 of his 22 points in the second half, pushing the Minutemen to a 67-47 victory after leading by just six at halftime. He's a post prospect with a bright future at the next level.
Gilman School got a big Governor's Challenge performance from 2022 guard Christian Winborne. Winborne closed out their trip to the Governor's Challenge with 23 points and another victory over Eagle Academy (NY) in a 58-55 victory.

E.J. Neal and his Balboa (CA) squad didn't get a victory in their final game of the 2019 Governor's Challenge but they got a big performance from him. Neal finished with 19 points on 6-of-15 from the floor and 2-of-5 from the 3-point line, showing off his ability to operate all over the floor.

He holds offers from Northern Colorado, Brown and Montana while drawing interest from a number of other D1 programs.
South Shore lost a close one against Rock Creek Christian, but it wasn't due to the lack of effort from Jaqui Murray. Murray finished with 19 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks, showing off his ability to fill up the stat sheet for his squad, despite the result. He shot 8-of-14 from the field and 2-of-3 from behind the arc, showing off his ability to score on all three levels. He's a junior prospect in the state of New York worth a look by college programs.
Legacy Early College got another close win in the 2019 Governor's Challenge, this time over Balboa (CA) with a 47-43 win.

Wright finished with 12 points, five rebounds and four assists, going 5-of-8 from the free-throw line in the defensive battle. He's slowly emerging as a solid combo guard that can knock it down from deep. He holds offers from a number of D1 programs while drawing interest from some high major programs as well.

He put up 19 points, seven assists and six rebounds, showing off his ability to play big despite his small stature. He'll be a solid addition to Columbia's squad next season.
Rock Creek Christian found themselves in a battle against South Shore (NY) in their second game of the 2019 Governor's Challenge. 2020 guard DeLonnie Hunt stepped up big with 11 points, five assists and five rebounds in the 71-63 victory. Hunt did well not to force things on the offensive end against a bigger squad and found a way to impact the game with his assists and ability to get to the rim in a close win. He's an explosive guard that colleges are starting to get wise about offering as he's still an unsigned senior.
6-foot-2 guard Bryce Johnson put together a solid performance for Lake Nona despite their loss to Landon. Johnson put up 12 points, 15 rebounds, two assists and a block for his squad despite the result. He's 6-foot-2 with a nice blend of length and athleticism that allows him to get to the rim and finish. He's also quite the offensive rebounder, finishing with four in the game. He'll be one prospect to keep an eye on out the state of Florida.
2021 guard Zaire Wells was another top performer for the South Shore Vikings despite their close loss to Rock Creek Christian. Wells poured in 22 points and five rebounds while shooting 9-of-16 from the floor and 4-of-8 shooting from 3-point land. He did well to assert himself from behind the 3-point arc as well as going to the basket to make a difference in the game. He's a 6-foot-5 guard in the state of New York worth some looks.
