He plays with savvy and a little bit of flare to his game and can score it from every level of the floor as well as make plays for teammates with his craftiness and creativity. He definitely stood out as one of the better playmaking guard in the 16U division.
Jake Taylor, OTP National
Taylor can make an impact as both a primary playmaker/distributor and a primary scorer, and he had games this weekend doing both of those. He has the ability to make reads out of ball screens, getting the ball where it needs to go with a some sauce and flash in it.. On a team with good lead guards, he spent some time this weekend playing both on and off the ball and showed that he can be a threat from the perimeter with the ability to consistently knock down threes.

Glover was one of the better passers and playmakers in the field and he consistently was able to make his mark on games by putting the ball on the floor, making reads, and distributing the ball very well. He has great size at the point and has a savvy and court vision beyond his years. He was very good beating defenders off the dribble and making reads on secondary defenders and either scoring or making the right play and getting teammates opportunities.
