ORLANDO – The Albany City Rocks team boasts one of the best rosters in the country with two top 15 players in Ricardo Ledo and DeJuan Coleman and talented 2012 forward Tyler Cavanaugh to back them up.

Isaiah Lewis is often forgotten when people think of City Rocks, but this week Ledo is in Puerto Rico trying out for the national team and Coleman is nowhere to be found.

Now it is up to Cavanaugh to be the primary scorer and Lewis to step up as the two man. In their first game at the AAU 17 and Under Nationals in Orlando, Canvanaugh and Lewis did just that. Cavanaugh scored when needed and Lewis was both a scorer and a distributor. Continue reading

After losing their opening game on Tuesday, CIA Bounce (Canada) has literally bounced back with two straight wins.  One possible reason for the slow start is the youth and inexperience of the Canadians.

One way to fix that is to have one of the best players in the country lead by example.  That’s exactly what Class of 2012 forward Anthony Bennett is doing right now. Continue reading

Kareem Canty is the latest talented New York City area point guards, and like the great ones before him, he just wants to win.

Canty can both score and pass at an elite level and his ability to get into the lane is unparalleled. He is also a capable shot maker, especially off the dribble.

One of the knocks on Canty is that his competitive side can mess him up at times, but if that’s one of the things he has to work on, that’s a good problem to have. Continue reading
