Reps on rise at NBPA Camp
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The NBPA Top 100 Camp is loaded with talent. Several prospects, including T.J. Warren, enhanced their national reputations with their strong play on day one.
T.J. Warren (2012 combo forward)- With a combination of size, craftiness and a sweet shooting stroke, Warren is a major scoring threat. After the first two rounds of games, Warren is the No. 5 scorer at 14 ppg.
Codi Miller-McIntyre (2012 point guard)- Wake Forest has a good one in Miller-McIntyre. The heady and talented point guard has made a major impact on the camp. Not only is he a good penetrate and pitch player, Miller-McIntyre is the top scorer in the camp after day one at 21 ppg. Three of those points were a game winning three-pointer in overtime.
Sam Dekker (2012 small forward)- The Wisconsin commitment was pivotal in his team's come from behind buzzer-beater win. Not only does he have a feathery jump shot, he is a high motor player who rebounds and defends.
Danuel House (2012 small forward)- House came into this event with a lot of buzz, and he backed it up to the fullest. A high-level athlete, House does it all from the small forward position. He is making a strong case to shoot further up the rankings.
Tyler Lewis (2012 point guard)- Lewis had a strong outing against L.J. Rose in his first game with a 19-point outing. He repeatedly worked his way into the midrange and hit his floater. On top of his scoring, Lewis and Kyle Anderson are by far the top two passers in the class.
Jerome Hairston (2012 point guard)- Hairston has size for the position at 6-foot-3 and deep shooting range. Once in the midrange, he has a feel for passing the ball. He went for 17 points in his opener.
Daniel Ochefu (2012 center)- He isn't a big-time athlete, but Ochefu has length and a feel for scoring around the basket. One of his best traits is that he doesn't try to play too fast and recognizes what is there for the taking. He held his own in matchups against Andre Drummond and Tony Parker.
Jordan Price (2012 wing)- Price has given up on the point guard experiment and played to his strength recently as a power scorer. The new focus has paid big dividends. He made a big splash at the Under Armour Camp and is the third-leading scorer here with 17.5 ppg.
Jordan Burgess (2012 wing)- Burgess doesn't have a big reputation, but he has made a big impression on day one. If Thursday is any indication of his ability, then VCU has a quality wing scorer on the way. Burgess is averaging 14.5 ppg as the No. 4 scorer in the camp.
Amile Jefferson (2012 combo forward)- Jefferson does his best work on the baseline and was effective throughout the day with slashing drives and offensive rebounding. He had a big scoring day, averaging 18 ppg to be the No. 2 scorer in the camp.
Adam Woodbury (2012 center)- Woodbury is a technician with soft touch in the low post. If he isn't double-teamed down low, it is generally going to be a bucket. He comes out of the first day as the No. 9 scorer in the camp at 11.5 ppg.
Katin Reinhardt (2012 shooting guard)- A big, physical shooting guard, Reinhardt was impressive on day one. He hit shots from behind the arc and in the midrange while also defending and rebounding his position. At 11.5 ppg, he is tied as the No. 9 scorer in the camp.
Savon Goodman ( 2012 combo forward)- This high-level athlete has an insatiable motor and will be a tremendous fit at Villanova playing off their guard oriented scoring offense. He finishes day one as the No. 6 scorer in the camp.
Glenn Robinson III (2012 small forward)- The Michigan commitment continues to improve. He has the potential to be a high-level wing scorer who can score points off moves and also grind out points around the basket.
Anthony Bennett (2012 combo forward)- It never fails that Bennett is one of the top players at an event. He is solidifying himself as a knock down three-point shooter to go along with his athletic/effort game. At the end of day one, he is the No. 12 scorer in camp.
