Prep Showcase: Saturday & Sunday

Noah Vonleh

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Noah Vonleh, Chris McCullough and Deandre Burnett were among the top performers over the course of Saturday and Sunday at the National Prep Showcase.

Duane Notice, SG, St. Thomas More – A strongly built guard out of Canada, Notice put together a strong effort in an overtime win over St. Thomas More. Notice is a tough guard that can handle some in a pinch and rebounds well from his position. Notice was an efficient 8-for-11 from the field, including 2-for-3 from behind the three-point stripe. He finished with 21 points.

Terry Rozier, PG, Hargrave – For the second day in a row, Rozier impressed onlookers at Albertus Magnus college. An explosive athlete, Rozier has a tremendous body control and finishes well at the basket. Rozier is at his best in transition, but in the half court he's able to get into the paint when he wants. Rozier could stand to spruce up his shot selection at times, but he is certainly Hargrave's biggest weapon. He finished with 25 point and seven rebounds.

Noah Vonleh, PF, New Hampton – In the first half against Hargrave on Saturday, Vonleh was visibly frustrated by some misses at the rim. Despite the misses, Vonleh imposed his will on the backboard doing what he does best – pursue the ball off the rim. In the second half, Vonleh was even more impressive attacking the backboard, finishing through contact and even mixing in a three-pointer. In all, Vonleh finished with 27 points and 18 rebounds and put together an elite performance.

Deandre Burnett, SG, Massanutten – Burnett's Saturday outburst was among the best performances of the weekend. A 6-foot-2 guard, Burnett got hot and pumped in 40 points on an extremely efficient 16-for-19 from the field. Burnett scored it pretty much when and how he wanted to. He worked in four threes, scored in transition, from mid-range and at the rim. Burnett is a Miami signee.

Rashad Richardson, SF, Kiski Prep – It was one of those days for Richardson, a 6-foot-5 originally out of Lafayette (Ind.). The southpaw seemingly couldn't miss against Brewster, as he pumped in a half dozen threes. The IPFW commit hit shots off the bounce, off the catch and showed range on his shot. His scoring performance was a major reason Kiski was able to knock off Brewster.

Travis Jorgenson, PG, New Hampton Prep – With the lack of available lead guards in the 2013 class, Jorgenson is bound to get high major looks. The 5-foot-10 guard doesn't attempt to do too much and knows how to run a team. Jorgenson made the appropriate play with the basketball, created opportunities for his teammates and mixed in drives and jump shots during his two games at the Prep Showcase.

Roger Moute a Bidias, SF/PF, Notre Dame Prep – One of the more intriguing prospects of the weekend, Mouta a Bidias, who is the brother of Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, is an athletic and bouncy 6-foot-7 forward. His athleticism is impressive, but he also has some skill and is capable of shooting jump shots out to 21-feet. His ball handling could be spruced up, but he's talented and certainly someone college coaches will pay close attention to this year.

Kuran Iverson, SF, Fishburne – Iverson had an up and down game on Sunday. Late in regulation he stepped up and hit a pair of off the dribble jump shots to help force overtime with St. Thomas More. But in overtime he failed to score and Fishburne took a loss.

Iverson is a heck of a talent. At 6-foot-9, he's skilled, has tremendous physical tools and a lot of raw ability. He's a good one-on-one player, as he's tough to defend because of his skill level and size. With that said, he still needs to learn to not take plays off. He finished 8-for-17 from the field for 24 points, including five three-pointers.

Jerron Wilbut, SG, St. John's NWMA – An accomplished scorer, Wilbut, a native of Illinois, can put up points in a hurry. He's comfortable taking shots from mid-range and he's consistent from that part of the floor. Wilbut is strong enough to finish through contact at the rim and is a good shooter off the catch at the three-point stripe. Coaches in need of a scorer should certainly give Wilbut a strong look.

Kyle Washington, PF, Brewster Academy – After an average day on Saturday, Washington brought his effort and energy on Sunday. The N.C. State signee rebounded his area, contested shots and played with a chip on his shoulder. Offensively, Washington worked in a couple of left jump hooks and even stepped out and drilled a three-pointer. Washington will need to get stronger and develop his off hand (right), but he's certainly a top 100 prospect and someone that can help Mark Gottfried's bunch.

Chris McCullough, PF, Brewster Academy – One of the more athletic post players in the 2014 class, McCullough showed off his immense talent in two games for Brewster. He's learning how to play hard and it shows on the court. Using his supreme athleticism, McCullough raced up and down the floor looking to score and had a handful of highlight reel slams and put backs. Defensively he was active and attempted to swat everything that entered his area. He appears to be making the appropriate improvements and was among the revelations at the Prep Showcase.

Jared Terrell, SG, Brewster – One of the better pure scorers in the class of 2014, Terrell certainly had his moments this weekend at the National Prep Showcase. He's a powerfully built guard that likes to play physical and finishes well through contact. His mid-range jump shot is one of his best weapons and he's also a pretty good shooter off the catch from three-point line.

Josh Sharma, C, Northfield Mount Hermon – Physically he's not quite ready, but Sharma, a 6-foot-11, 200-pounder, has plenty of potential. He didn't get a ton of minutes, but when he was in on Sunday, Sharma flashed a good set of hands, nice touch around the basket and good mobility. As he gets stronger, Sharma is sure to be more effective and confident with his moves inside. High major schools are already showing interest and for good reason.

*Anton Gill scored 24 points in Hargrave's loss to New Hampton Prep on Saturday. He was 7-for-17 from the field and worked in a pair of three-pointers. Gill's mid-range shot wasn't going down so he found ways to get to the free throw line, where he nailed all eight of his attempts.

*Jaylen Brantley got hot against for Notre Dame Prep. Brantley scored 21 points on 9-for-13 shooting and handled the ball well tossing out five assists to just one turnover.

*Josh Hearlihy had a solid weekend for Northfield Mount Hermon. A 6-foot-7 forward, Hearlihy plays with energy, rebounds the ball well and is a capable finisher inside.

*Former Morehead state commit Charles Foster did some nice things for Lee Academy this weekend. He's an improved scorer that shot the ball with confidence and made plays at the rim.

*Lincoln Davis had a nice two games for New Hampton Prep. The 6-foot-3 guard is a pretty good athlete that shoots the ball well when his feet are set. Fairfield, who stopped by the event, scored a nice pick up in Davis.

*Vermont Academy had a pair of guards that caught our eye. Florida International signee Daquein McNeil took pride in his defense and did a good job defending the ball, while Richard Williams showed off his athleticism and scoring ability.

*Duane Notice said he's heard from Big East and A-10 schools. He said Santa Clara has offered and is also regularly hearing from Auburn, New Mexico and Rhode Island.
