Around the rim, Coleman is an absolute beast. He has great touch that goes along with great power. At one point he dunked after getting a hard rebound and nearly displaced the whole basket setting.
The great thing about Coleman is that he is very determined to be successful in the paint. Every time he gets the ball he makes a great move and explodes to the rim. Coleman has good feet and great hands.
Rebounding is an interesting point for Coleman as he does not box out but good luck getting a rebound over the 6-foot-8, 280-pound center.
There have been several standouts so far in the EYBL session number 3 but Bennett is doing some good things out on the court. After a solid first day, Bennett followed it up with another good day.
Bennett has a good stroke and was hitting, but did lose his legs just a bit near the end of the night. The athleticism that Bennett possesses is amazing and he often spent time above the rim.
One aspect that was important for Bennett to show on Sunday was getting rebounds in traffic. The competition level was raised and it was important for players like Bennett to step up. The 6-foot-7, 230-pound forward was active all night on both the offensive and defensive boards.
The physically gifted forward had another solid day after he realized how he was going to be successful against his opponents. Gathers is fast and strong and when he gets to the rim he is going to score the basketball. Sometimes he tends to drift away from the basket and it hurts his game. In an early game Sunday against the Oakland Soldiers, Gathers tried to shoot jump shots that were not falling and it hurt the teams scoring chances.
Louisiana Select found themselves in a hole early and Gathers just took the ball to the basket, scoring 20 points in the second half. He wants to expand his game but as of now his game is limited. However, Gathers is really good at punishing his opponents down low.
In the first game of the day Reinhardt did not find his shot early but kept his head in the game and helped bring California Supreme back with a big second half. He was able to score from inside and out but started to get it going with a few steals.
Reinhardt sprained his ankle in that game and in his second game started off well by shooting two straight threes but then was bothered by the ankle and sat for most of the game. Hitting the two threes is a good sign from the shooting guard who has not shot the ball particularly well from the floor this weekend.
