Session I of the Sweet 16 was loaded with talent across the board, Bledsoe Ice was no exception. From their first game Friday night until their last on Sunday, coaches filled the baseline to see this team and watch these college prospects play together.
Fuller was one of the best players on the court every game. His combination of quick moves and quick midrange jumper was tough for guards to handle all weekend. He led the break and read the defenses to make the right plays consistently, either finding teammates or finishing the play himself.
Chambers had the biggest weekend of any player in attendance. Chambers, at 6’3, has good size for a combo guard and the skill set to play either guard position at the next level. His ability to drive and finish in traffic was the bright spot in his game, knocking down the 3 ball all weekend was just a plus. Chambers was a tough cover for smaller guards and even tougher for bigger slower guards, he constantly put pressure on the defense in the lane and made the right plays for teammates.
Getting in the lane and being a hound on the defensive end was the calling card of Pettway. Almost like a Tony Allen type player with a better jumper. He was big for Bledsoe all weekend with his ability to put pressure on guards and read defenses. Pettway got into the lane and finished efficiently, and showed his athleticism in transition finishing above the rim.
He is one of the best finishers I’ve seen at the highschool level under 6 feet. The quick guard gets into the lane and finishes through contact over bigger defenders. He is nearly unstoppable in transition with his dominant hand and made it hard for bigs to get a hand on his shot. He completed several old fashion 3 point plays in the paint, somehow maintaining focus to finish in the lane.
