RYZE Tip Off Classic 17U Top Performers Pt. 1



Sage Tolentino, TSF mack 2022 (Pictured)


The Hawaiian-born Auburn commit has so much promise and makes a huge impact on both ends of the floor. Defensively, he contested everything in the paint and nothing came easy for opposing teams. He also showed a well-rounded skill set on offense, with good footwork on the block and the ability to knock down shots from the perimeter.


Julian Phillips, Upward Stars


One word comes to mind when I think of Julian Phillips: smooth. His movement on the floor is so fluid and quick, and he seems to always find himself right where he needs to be. He showed a high level of athleticism finishing around the rim and was very useful in the pick-and-pop shooting the ball. His status among some of the top players in the country is well-warranted.


Jordan Riley, Tri City Elite


Sniper. Riley shot the lights out this weekend, and was the most prolific three-point shooter in the entire field, making over 4 per game. His scoring did not just include making threes, however. He saw a lot of success attacking closeouts and getting into the paint. Overall, he had a great weekend scoring the ball and was among the top scorers in the 17U division.


Scoot Henderson, Game Elite Big Five


Scoot brought the electricity. As always, when he hit the floor it was all eyes on him. He just has an ability to wow you every time out, whether it's with a play that no one else would be able to make or a new wrinkle in his game that is very noticeable. He saw a lot of success getting to the rim and his emphatic finishes created a lot of buzz among the people in attendance.


Keith Robbins, Team Dickerson


Expect a pretty solid blow up from Robbins, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard that is just an all out bucket-getter. He has a really diverse offensive skill set and is a true three level-scorer. After missing the high school season at Saint Francis, he should quickly cement himself among the better guards in Georgia's 2022 class.


Tre Chatman, SBT


Chatman put up some insane numbers, leading the 17U division in scoring at 34 points per game. He has a physicality and strength to him that allow him to finish at the rim with contact. His motor is also always running on high and he seemingly gets to every loose ball and creates a lot of deflections that end up turning into offense on the other end. Did we mention he was also able to lead SBT to a 4-0 record?


Robert Dix, Georgia Legacy


Dix was a lot to handle on the perimeter with his size, strength, and athleticism. He is always in attack mode, looking to make his way to the rim, where he can bully his way to finishes. He also seems to draw a lot of contact and converts at a high rate at the free throw line. Another aspect where he tends to excel is on the glass, where he can rebound the ball at a high level.
