Although this is the first year for 2006 shooting guard prospect P’Allen Stinnett to play AAU ball, he has played very well for the Las Vegas Prospects. Stinnett, 6-foot-2, 170-pounds, out of Palo Verde High School in Las Vegas, has already caught the attention of several college coaching staffs.
“Iowa State, BYU, Western Illinois, Utah State, and UNLV are all interested in P’Allen,” said his AAU coach Anthony Brown.
The athletic Stinnett specializes in scoring the ball, but he can defend as well.
“He runs the wing unbelievably well,” said Coach Brown. “He can finish and he is real long and athletic. He runs through a lot of passes and is a helluva defender. He can really shoot it and get in the lane also.”
The one weakness in Stinnett’s game stems from his strength in that sometimes he is too focused on scoring the ball and loses a feel for the team game.
“He really likes to shoot it, and sometimes he needs to have a better understanding of when to give the ball up and not force the issue,” said Coach Brown. “He also needs to get stronger with the ball when he gets contact.”
