Rocky Mountain (ID) at Bishop Kelly (ID)
by Transition Hoops Report
Bishop Kelly’s defensive pressure was the deciding factor in beating Rocky Mountain. Bishop Kelly’s sophomore guard Max Rice (6’3 SG 2018), son of Boise State head coach Leon Rice, knocked down a handful of 3’s. He has a really high basketball IQ, jumps passing lanes, reads screens and finding the open man. Rice consistently makes the right play throughout a game.
Kobe Terashima (6’1 PG 2017) led the way for Rocky Mountain, who was without knock down 3 point shooter Jacob Erickson (6’1 SG 2017) and D1 prospect Kolby Lee (6'9 C 2017). Terashima was able to break pressure and find open teammates for open looks. He also knocked down several 3’s and got to his mid-range jumpshot off the dribble. Terashima is a great leader.
Blair Moore (6’9 PF 2016) is also an intriguing prospect for Rocky Mountain. His size is impressive and he can knock down perimeter jumpshots but struggles with his interior footwork and rebounding out of his range.
