Area Codes Basketball 10th Annual Easter Classic Day 2 recap
It was once again another great showing of talent for this year’s Area Codes Basketball’s 10th Annual Easter Classic with 26 of the top programs coming in from all over the Southwest. A lot of kids were able to showcase their skills in a very competitive event in front of a handful of scouts and college coaches.
Here are a few of the standouts I was able to see in action:
Bobacar Diallo 6’2 2019 – Powerhouse Hoops
Bobacar displayed his toughness and hustle throughout the day. Bobacar excels on the defensive end where he is up to the challenge of guarding any position on the court. He plays with a mean streak that flows from the defensive end and usually leads to easy buckets for him or his teammates. With his motor, I can see Diallo making a name for himself this summer.
Jonathan Jackson 6’5 2019- Arizona Dream Team
Johnathan proved to be a tough guard for any one today using his length and ball handling skills to score and distribute. His superb ball handling kept defenders of balance all day & his athleticism allowed him to finish in traffic.
Emari Jones 5’11 2019- Arizona Dream Team
Emari was the best long-range shooter I was able to see on Day Two. Emari displayed a high level of floor generalship by dishing and scoring at will. Emari was able to score from all three levels using an array of crossovers to lose his defender.
Kron Bailey 6’5 2018- AZ Firestorm
Kron was one of the most athletic players I was able to see on Day Two. He dominated with his length, exceling in end to end plays. Kron was able to use his exceptional first step to get to the rim where he finished with his athletic abilities.
Seth Dawson 6’7 2019 – AZ Firestorm
Seth impressed me with his size and play-making ability. He was able to control the boards and push the ball on the break. Seth’s mobility was key for his team as it constantly created mismatches that he was able to take advantage of.
Alejandro Monreal 5’11 2019- Titans
Alejandro was a dead eye shooter. Throughout the day he proved to be a knockdown shooter rather than off the catch or the dribble. His shiftiness allowed him to create enough space to get off his jump shot. When the three was taken away he was able to knockdown easy midrange floaters.
