Court 1 Day 1 Superlatives

Here are my Day 1 Superlatives from Court 1.


Best Performance: DJ Daniels (6'7/F|C/Max Levels)

IG: dj.hoops9


DJ was virtually unstoppable and dominated in his team's

day-one match-up. He has size and length, and the

Midwest Renegades just did not have the size to offer

much resistance. DJ is still developing on both ends of the

floor, and he is still growing into his body, which we may

not see the fullness of anytime soon because he is still

growing. However, as of right now, he showed his ability to

rebound at a high rate and score in the paint and at the

rim. With his size, he had to fight contact, which he did

well, as the opponents were trying to play him physically.

He finished with the following stat line: 19pts (8-9),



Best Scorer: Dylan Steffe (CG/Max Levels)

IG: dylansteffe_


Dylan was one of, if not the best, iso scorer I saw on day

one. He is a downhill attacking guard who kept defenders

on their heels. He is shifty off the bounce and crafty at

finishing at the rim. He is a smooth athlete with body

control and does a good job changing speeds and

direction. He does a good job getting to the rim and

finishing while he also showed his ability to find


teammates with on-time and on-target passes while on the

move. He has end-to-end speed and was putting pressure

on the rim all night. He finished with the following stat

line: 14pts (6-14 [0-2 3ptr]), 8rebs.  


Best 3-Pt Shooter: King Johnson (6'1/CG/Elev8)

IG: chooworld


King must have been inspired by the performance of

Oakland's dynamic shooter Jack Gohike as he was on fire

from behind the arc. He has ok size at this level as a

backcourt talent and showed he could handle the rock and

create offense off the bounce. As much potential as he

showed as a scorer off the bounce, his calling card on day

one was from range. Not only did he shoot it well from

distance but he was very efficient as he shot 80% from

behind the arc. He finished with the following stat line:

36pts (12-20 [8-10 3-ptr]), 7rebs


Best Floor General: Logan Pride (Memphis War Eagles)



Logan is a small PG who showed his ability to run the

show. He is a really intriguing lead guard talent who has a

good feel for the game, gets his teammates involved, has a

really good change of speed dribble, and slick ball handling

skills that help him get to wherever he desires on the court.

FOE Louisiana had no answer for him as he was a

masterful creator the entire game. He is reliable and

trustworthy at the floor general spot.  



Best Rebounder: Leo Pomianek (6'3/SG/Elev8) 22


Leo has good positional size and showed versatility on

both ends of the floor. Although he is listed as a shooting

guard in his profile, he had to spend most of the time

playing on the inside due to his size. He is a skilled

prospect who really sees the floor well and can make good

passes off the bounce and out of his low-block post-ups.

He is a solid athlete with a nice all-around game. He

finished with 11 boards on the night.   



Best Shot-Blocker: Zimauri McGowan (F|C/Max



Zimauri has size and length, and even though he is still

really raw, he plays with a lot of energy and effort. He is

active on the glass and did a good job on the defensive end,

being a shot-blocking presence. He challenged and altered

many shots even when he could not block them.
