Jordan Hall has made some serious noise to start the Under Armour Association and he continued his high-level play on Friday night. Hall has always had a lot of potential, but he is starting to produce. Hall nearly had a double-double with 11 points and 9 rebounds. He didn’t just produce on those two fronts as he also got his teammates involved with 4 assists. He stands 6’7” with the ability to play on the perimeter, which makes him a very tough matchup. Hall is one to keep an eye on for the rest of the AAU season.
The BMaze Elite guard Jaden Springer had a tough start to the game, but he certainly picked it up as he scored 30 points. The most impressive part of Springer’s game is how skilled he is. As the game went on, the five-star guard was able to pick his spots and got to wherever he wanted on the floor. He’s an excellent shot maker and is very crafty around the basket. He led his team to a 69-62 win over New Heights.
New Heights guard Ryan Myers had a solid performance from start to finish in a tough loss to BMaze Elite. Myers dropped 21 points and shot 3-5 from the three. He plays off the ball at Christ the King, but he’s running point guard for New Heights and is making an easy transition. Myers is receiving a decent amount of attention on the recruiting front but is deserving of more.
Canada Elite took a 58-50 loss to Team Rio, but Karim Mane was a bright spot. Mane dropped 24 points as he got to the basket at will at certain points and made three from beyond on the arc. His stock has taken off this AAU season and it’s easy to see why. Mane uses his speed and his well-rounded skill set to score in a variety of ways. From a scoring standpoint, he is one of the best I saw on Friday night.
Class of 2022 guard Jalen Hood-Schifino took a loss to BMaze Elite, but he still shined with 16 points. He is 6’4” and has the poise to run the point guard position and also can score at a very high level. He is as dynamic of a guard as I’ve seen and showed why with his play on Friday night.
Tyler Brelsford, a class of 2020 PG playing for New World (DC), just committed to George Washington.
