AMC Report- Part 1

I have tons of notes on players. It will probably be a 3 or 4 part series to get it all posted.

Marcus Crider & Branden Dawson SYF-Both are very good. Both are D-1 guys. I like Crider just a little bit more right now. Crider is a little bit more athletic and looked better shooting the ball. Dawson is no slouch but has work to do on his shooting I believe. Both are great athletes especially getting off the floor.

Zac VanDeWater Spiece Select- Zac has not had the spring so far that I expected him to have. I expect most of that is due to injuries both during the start of AAU season and also the injuries he was fighting during the school year. I believe he will get back into the flow and have a very big July when he is completely healthy.

Brent Calhoun Eric Gordon All-Stars- Calhoun switched teams from Spiece Indy Stars to EG10. I do not know the complete story but he played with EG10 last weekend for State because the Indy Stars did not play in the event and appears he liked it. I'm not sure what I think of the whole situation but something doesn't sit right with me somewhere in the situation.

Nic Moore > Travis Trice-They are very similar players. Trice has a height advantage and Moore is stronger. I like Moore better because he is stronger with the ball and makes better decisions.

Mitch McGary SYF-McGary made his spring debut this weekend. He was the point man in SYF's press and 1-3-1 zone. He played those spots well. He also showed a few good right hand finishes in the lane...he is left-handed.


That is the first night recap. Not too much happened as there were only 3 sets of games and match-ups in pool play were for the most part pretty bad. I would like more tournaments to have super pools and more super pools in those type of tournaments.
