CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - It was another day at the NBPA Top 100 Camp, and there were another set of standouts. One of the top performers of the day was elite post player Mitch McGary.
Mitch McGary (2012 post)- Disappointed with his play in an early session loss, McGary came out strong out of the gate in an evening matchup with Robert Carter. He had a series of nifty, yet physical drives, where he finished tough shots and set the tone for his team. The big men in the camp have struggled to set themselves apart offensively, but McGary did just that on Friday night.
Chicken Knowles (2012 forward)- Knowles brings an unassuming attitude onto the court but doesn't back down to his more physical opponents. He relies on his length and his feel for the game to free him up for scoring and rebounding opportunities. A future four-star prospect, Knowles was one of the most pleasant surprises of the camp.
Adam Woodbury (2012 center)- It is pretty simple with Woodbury. If you don't double team him, he is usually going to score with his reliable jump hook to either shoulder. If you double team him, Woodbury will find the open man.
Cameron Biedscheid (2012 wing)- A long wing with slinky athleticism, Beidsheid should be an impact player when he reaches Notre Dame. He is a natural scorer who produces buckets at all three levels.
NBPA top scorers
Here's a look at the top scorers through four games on Friday:
Alex Caruso (2012 guard)- Make no mistake about it, Caruso is a legit talent. If he didn't have a family connection to Texas A&M his recruitment would blow up in July. He impacts the game over the entire court with his combination of athleticism, skill and savvy.
Rasheed Sulaimon (2012 shooting guard)- Sulaimon has rejuvenated his stock at this event. He is a shot maker who appears destined to produce at Duke.
Kevin Ferrell (2012 point guard)- Ferrell is as shifty and quick a point guard as there is in the 2012 class. On top of that he knocks down jumpers. His turnovers might cause concern, but when he tones down his game in college, they will be less of a concern.
Ronnie Johnson (2012 point guard)- Cut out of a similar mold as Ferrell, Johnson finds the crevices in the defense. Although not as naturally gifted as Ferrell, Johnson is a lower risk point guard who will knock down jumpers like Ferrell.
Shaquille Cleare (2012 post)- Cleare's game is all about strength. He controls space and produces in traffic. A sure-handed rebounder, Cleare is also a great finisher through contact.
Tony Parker (2012 post)- Parker made a statement against Andre Drummond that he can score against anyone in the country. He has been active and has a knack for creating space with his spin moves and pivots.
Anton Gill (2013 shooting guard)- The camp is short on 2013 talent, but Gill has stood out with his ability to make contested jumpers and also attack the basket for buckets.
