He looked to score frequently or was either stifled or simply missed his shot. He is obviously a physically gifted athlete, but his strength wasn't used to his advantage.
Robert Upshaw: Upshaw had an up and down first game offensively as his squad relied mostly on Shabazz Muhammad – who had 39 points in the contest – and Upshaw found it difficult to keep going. He also got himself into early foul trouble and was held to only 8 points for the game.
Against Indiana Elite in the second game we watched involving Upshaw, he was much more assertive on offense> He only finished with two more points – 10 total - but he played within his game and used his power inside to out-muscle those that guarded him.
Bell showed a ton of athleticism - which is to be expected – and ended the first game for the Compton Magic with 12 points. In a close game, Bell's assertiveness served him well and he was able to make an impact on both ends of the floor.
Emmanuel Mudiay: A 2014 guard, Mudiay has a lot of talent and potential, but his youth was on display in his first contest, finishing with seven points.
He ran both the point and shooting guard positions, and showed flashes early on. There were times where he disappeared throughout stretches of the game, but he will learn to be more assertive and aggressive with more experience.
Stephen Zimmerman: In the first game we observed, Zimmerman was used sparingly and didn't see much of the floor.
For a kid who will just now be entering his freshman year of high school, Zimmerman's size is something to keep an eye on. He had a significant height advantage over everyone on the floor.
