Day one of the National Prep Showcase is complete, as Adam Finkelstein has brought in some of the best prep schools around the country. Here are 12 prospects who shined and gave it their all on the court.
Jules Moor – Class of 2018 (Hargrave Military Academy)
Signed with Stony Brook, Moor was tremendous in the afternoon game against Woodstock Academy as he scored 24 points (10-16FG). As the 6-foot-6 guard was doing a bit of everything on the floor, he flourished in transition where he finished through contact or drew fouls. Although he forced plays at times, Moor’s defensive efforts caused multiple deflections.
Aboubacar Camara – Class of 2018 (The Academy Spain)
Camara, a Mali native, used his body and overall strength to get positioning inside as he dominated the paint against South Kent finishing off with 18 points. At 6-foot-9, Camara took advantage of his touch down low as he scored off of second chance points while using his post moves effectively. He also used his length to grab rebounds on both ends over smaller defenders.
Keshawn Curry – Class of 2018 (Fork Union Military Academy)
The VCU signee scored at will during the first half against St. Thomas More as he recorded 17 points. Aside from his scoring, Curry has a good feel for the game, which led to his vision and passing ability. The 6-foot-4 prospect boxed out well inside as he finished the game with 11 rebounds.
Noah Kirkwood – Class of 2018 (Northfield Mount Hermon)
Kirkwood showed versatility against Sunrise Christian as he showed his ability to score on all three levels. The Harvard signee created for himself and was not afraid to make the extra pass to his teammates on multiple plays. Kirkwood finished the game with 18 points and four rebounds.
Jaylen Sebree – Class of 2018 (IMG Academy)
Sebree was very impressive from the start against Notre Dame Prep. Not only did he show his bounce and athleticism play after play, he displayed his ability to score from mid-range and out as he ended with 23 points. Besides his scoring, the 6-foot-6 wing also made smart decisions while getting others involved.
Oumar Ballo – Class of 2020 (The Academy Spain)
Hassan Diarra – Class of 2020 (Putnam Science)
Nate Leszewski – Class of 2018 (Northfield Mount Hermon)
Diego Willis – Class of 2018 (The Academy Spain)
Tavin Lovan – Class of 2018 (Hargrave Military Academy)
