McCullough Makes Mark at CenturyLink
by Transition Hoops Report
Here is a list of stand out performers from the New Year's Basketball Bash at Centurylink Arena in Boise, ID
Class of 2015
Riley Leavitt (6’3 PG Eagle HS, ID) – had another nice game for Eagle. He is really good using ball screens and off the dribble because he can knock down the 3, mid range pull up jumper, and finish at the rim. Leavitt is long and athletic. He will be a nice piece for a small school when he returns from an LDS mission.
Jack Millsap (6’4 PF Post Falls HS, ID) – was strong and tough interior presence. Millsap has great hands and can really finish inside. He would be an asset for a small college because he can make game winning plays even though he is a shorter interior player.
Dalton Thompson (6’4 SG Post Falls HS, ID) – knocked down some perimeter jumpshots and got to the line multiple times by slashing to the rim or beating guys off the dribble. Thompson is a great athlete which makes him a versatile defender. He would be a solid player in the NWAC because he is a big wing that can shoot it.
Class of 2016
Talmage Clark (6’5 PF Eagle HS, ID) – showed a nice stroke from 3 knocking down a couple 3’s and was really active on the boards on both ends.
Zac Furgerson (6’4 PF Eagle HS, ID) – made some really nice interior moves in the first half. Furgerson also knocked down a couple 3’s and got to the line multiple times.
Max McCullough (5’10 PG Post Falls HS, ID) – was the most impressive prospect at the tournament. McCullough is really smart with a great feel for the game. He can get separation off the bounce because he is quick and really shifty. He can score it from 3, mid range pull up, or finish at the rim and he is excellent at setting up his teammates for easy buckets. He is a no brainer to play college basketball and his level will be determined by how much stronger he gets.
Kendall Williams (6’3 PF Centennial HS, ID) – did a nice job on the glass and has a nice mid range game. When he is engaged and playing hard Williams is a factor on both ends.
Class of 2017
Brooks King (6’2 SG Centennial HS, ID) – his 3 ball was falling on this night. King can really get it going which opens things up for his whole team. If he can continue to grow and get stronger he has a chance to play at a high level.
