2019 Governor's Challenge Day 4: Top 10 Performers

By Big Shots Nation, 01/02/20, 2:15PM EST


Here's a look at the top performers from Day 4.


The Dayton Flyers really have a sharpshooting prospect to look forward to in Class of 2020 shooting guard Koby Brea out of Monsignor Scanlan (NY). Brea put up 28 points on 10-of-18 shooting from the field and 6-of-12 shooting from 3-point land in victory over Glenelg Country School (MD). 19 of Brea's 28 points came in the first half. In the second half, he got some much-needed assistance from unsigned senior Joe Munden, who finished with 22 points and 11 rebounds, with 14 of his points coming in the second half.

2. 2020 guard DeLonnie Hunt, Rock Creek Christian

DeLonnie Hunt was turning heads on Day 4 of the 2019 Governor's Challenge. Hunt posted 16 points, 11 rebounds and five assists as he was all over the floor for Rock Creek Christian in a 12-point win over Beckley Prep IJN (WV). The 6-foot-1 guard was methodical in carving up his opponent however he could in order to energize his team. At halftime, things were close as Rock Creek led by just five points, but in the second half, as Hunt got going, things turned around for Rock Creek. So far, Hunt holds offer from South Alabama, Binghamton, UMBC and Bryant. As he bulks up and builds strength, that list is sure to grow.

3.  2020 Forward Amir Williams, Linden

Linden High School forward Amir Williams was one of the standout performers on Day 4 of the 2019 Governor's Challenge with a double-double. The 6-foot-4 forward used his large frame and broad shoulders well to battle down low in the paint. He finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead the way for his squad, though they came up just short. 13 of his 21 points came in the second half, when things seemed to be falling apart for his team. 

4. 2020 Forward Jordan Price, Elizabeth

Jordan Price was another top performer of Day 4 with a double-double of his own for the Elizabeth Minutemen. Price was a double-double machine for the Minutemen as he posted 19 points and 12 rebounds as his squad turned things around in the second half for a comeback victory. He was another 6-foot-4 forward that wreaked havoc in the post at the Governor's Challenge. He'll be an interesting prospect to watch at New Haven at the next level.

5. 2020 Forward Jordan Brathwaite, Glenelg Country School

Unsigned senior forward Jordan Brathwaite turned heads with his play on the interior and perimeter. Brathwaite finished with 22 points, and 13 rebounds for Glenelg Country School in a loss to Monsignor Scanlan. At 6-foot-6,  he has some versatility to spare, especially with his wingspan. While he took a lot of shots, he still went 10-of-20 from the field and showed he's much more than just a rim runner. He hasn't gotten a whole lot of looks just yet but his performance is something to grow on as he finds his way on the recruiting trail.

6. 2022 Guard Christian Winborne, Gilman

There's something special about 2022 guard Christian Winborne over at Gilman School (MD). He was without 2021 wing Malik Missouri, who is out with a knee injury, but it didn't slow him down from getting a comeback victory. Winborne had just one point at halftime with his team trailing by eight points before exploding for 18 points and finishing with 19 points in a comeback victory over Linden 58-54. Winborne is a combo guard that makes things happen passing and scoring the ball and already holds offers from Loyola (MD) and Kansas State. He'll be a young prospect to track in the early going.

7. 2020 Point Guard Curtis Houston, Beckley Prep IJN

2020 point guard Curtis Houston is one of the more underappreciated guards in his class. Houston is a natural floor general that lets the game come to him and it was no different against Rock Creek Christian as he finished with 15 points and three assists to pace his squad. When things looked gloomy for them on offense, Houston found a way to keep them in the game. Granted, they're only three deep on the bench, it doesn't help that a few players battled through foul trouble in their frontcourt. Houston holds offers from Alderson Broadus and UMES.

8. 2020 Guard/Wing Jalen Joiner, Piedmont Classical

Jalen Joiner had a solid outing in Piedmont Classical's debut in the Governor's Challenge. Joiner finished their final game of the event with 15 points, three rebounds and two assists in a 74-57 victory over Virginia Academy. He didn't force things in their final contest as coach also gave other players on the team to get playing time, finishing 6-of-9 from the field and 3-of-5 from the free-throw line. He's a prospect that knows how to adjust to each playing style the Bobcats face.

9. 2021 Guard Ryan Cornish, Sidwell Friends

Sidwell Friends School guard Ryan Cornish is slowly learning how to impact the all-around game on the floor. He put up 13 points in their 57-48 victory over St. Vincent Pallotti and showed poise at the point guard position. His 3-point shot wasn't falling, as he went 1-of-8 from the field but he still managed to dish out a team-high six assists and snag three rebounds. As he learns to do more than score the basketball, he's a prospect with a very high ceiling. So far, he holds offers from James Madison and Bryant.

10. 2021 Guard Jamarii Thomas, Piedmont Classical

2021 guard Jamarii Thomas was another top performer in Piedmont Classical's final contest of the 2019 Governor's Challenge. Thomas filled up the stat sheet against Virginia Academy with 15 points, four assists, two steals and two rebounds in their big win. Thomas was another player who adjusted well to the minutes' restriction to allow his teammates to play. He shot 5-of-9 from the field, 1-of-3 from 3-point land and 4-of-7 from the free-throw line. As a downhill threat, not many opposing guards want to get in his way. He holds offers from Catawba, Mars Hill and Lees-McRae.
