NBPA Top 100 camp all-star teams
PG/SG: Josh Selby PG/SG (6-3, 185) |
School: 2010, Baltimore, Md./Lake Clifton, committed to Tennessee
Breakdown: Selby is a super athletic guard with deep 3-point range. He plays in attack mode at all times and is a good passer with excellent court vision. A highlight waiting to happen!
PG: Kendall Marshall PG (6-4, 180)
School: 2010, Arlington, Va./Bishop O'Connell, committed to North Carolina
Breakdown: Marshall controls and dominates the game by passing the ball. He has big-time handle, feel and court vision. Marshall makes others better and keeps everybody happy. It is amazing that he is in sync with players he has played with for only three days. He must improve his shooting but Marshall is the best pure point guard and passer in the Class of 2010.
SG: Will Barton (6-6, 170)
School: 2010, Baltimore, Md./Lake Clifton, committed to Memphis
Breakdown: Barton is very athletic and can score in a variety of ways. He hits the 3 and has a solid midrange game, which includes the step-back jumper. He is an above-the-rim finisher in transition.
PF/C: Jared Sullinger PF/C (6-9, 270)
School: 2010, Columbus, Ohio/Northland, committed to Ohio State
Breakdown: Sullinger's strong, tough and physical. He's a low-post scoring and rebounding machine with an underrated skill package. When he maintains contact with the defender in the post, Sullinger puts two or three points in the book.< br>
C: Fabricio Melo C (7-0, 265)
PG: Joe Jackson (6-0, 160) |
School: 2010, Memphis/White Station
Breakdown: Jackson is super athletic, gets to the rim at will and is always in attack mode. He dunks on all clear paths to the rim. Jackson isn't afraid of anyone; he competes and challenges defenders of all sizes. He's a streaky shooter but is good enough to keep the defense honest.
SG/SF: Justin Coleman (6-4, 205)
School: 2010, Richmond, Va./Henrico County
Breakdown: Coleman has great size and athletic ability. He knocks down deep 3s and finishes above the rim in traffic. This super talented wing competes and plays with toughness.
SF: Stacey Poole (6-4, 190)
School 2010, Jacksonville, Fla./Andrew Jackson
Breakdown Poole excels in transition and slashes to the rim. A streaky shooter, he is good enough to keep the defense honest. On defense, he's capable of guarding both wing positions.
SF: Harrison Barnes (6-6, 205)
School: 2010, Ames, Iowa
Breakdown: This athletic wing is a triple threat (pass, dribble and shoot). He slashes to the rim, rebounds on both ends and makes it look easy. Barnes can score in a variety of ways and is a tough competitor.
PF: Nate Lubick (6-8, 230)
School: 2010, Southborough, Mass./St. Mark's, committed to Georgetown
Breakdown: Lubick's a strong, physical post who plays with great energy. He runs the floor, rebounds on both ends and can hit the open 3 off the catch with time and space. His passing ability should be well-utilized at Georgetown.
PG: Derrick Wilson (6-0, 210)
School: 2011, Lakeville, Conn./Hotchkiss
Breakdown: Wilson is a very strong and physical lead guard who can get to the rim, run the team and score when needed.
SG/SF: Michael Gbinije (6-6, 185)
School: 2011, Richmond, Va./Benedictine
Breakdown: Gbinije has a nice midrange game and can knock down the 3 off the catch or dribble. He finishes in transition and is capable of scoring in bunches. Gbinije has great size and talent with tremendous upside
SF/PF: Michael Gilchrist (6-7, 220)
School: 2011, Elizabeth, N.J./St. Patrick
Breakdown: Gilchrist is a big-time competitor who can dominate the game without scoring at times. He's a tremendous rebounder and defender who has continued to improve his perimeter skills. His off-the-charts upside makes him the nation's top junior.
SF/PF: Le'Bryan Nash (6-7, 225)
School: 2011, Dallas/ Lincoln
Breakdown: Nash is a strong forward who excels in transition. He rebounds and gets to the rim where he is a dynamic finisher.
PF/C: Rakeem Christmas (6-9, 230)
School: 2011, Philadelphia/Northeast Catholic
Breakdown: This confident post can face up and attack the rim. He also has an excellent jump hook and turn shot over his right shoulder. He rebounds and blocks shots with great length.
