Number 51 – Malcolm Grant, PG, Sr., Miami

Grant is the ironman. He rarely stepped off the floor for the Canes last year for good reason. He’s one of the best players in the country that rarely gets talked about. How’s that for a reason? Continue reading

Number 52 – Durand Scott, SG, Jr., Miami

The Hurricanes are a popular sleeper pick coming out of the ACC in large part because the bulk of those that matter are back. Scott is one of them. The New York tough guyis the glue for a team that should be better than a sleeper this season. Continue reading

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

Canty connecting with A-10 school

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
