Without a doubt the most entertaining match up of the weekend took place when guards Tyree Crump and Markelle Fultz clashed Saturday afternoon as Showtime Hoops took on DC Blue Devils during the Super 6 Showcase. Division I coaches crammed the baseline as they took in this back and forth dual between two of the most entertaining guards in the country. University of Georgia had their three assistants and Head Coach Mark Fox on hand to watch the Crump who committed to the Bulldogs back in the fall. Fultz, who has played his way onto the
top of the national scene, had coaches from Arizona, Kentucky, Xavier, Maryland, Virginia Tech, and Louisville front and center to watch him perform.
These two guards couldn’t possess more different types of games, but the one thing they have in common is that they both can absolutely put
the ball in the hole. Throughout the game Crump and Fultz found themselves guarding one another, with Fultz having to often take it upon himself to step up and pick up Crump at half court just to slow his penetration down a bit. In the first half Crump put his usual stamp on the game by doing what he is known for which is bombing away from deep and his shot was right on the money as he canned five three pointers during the half. The 6’2 guard is a joy to watch, his confidence builds and builds every time he watches that ball leave his hands and goes through the net.
In the second half, Fultz turned his smooth game up a notch. One of the most effortless scorers in the country, Sometimes what goes unnoticed is the way he can disrupt things on defense. Fultz used his long reach to come up with steals that led to some easy finishes at the rim. He’s always done damage in the midrange area, now the Dematha High School guard has started to become more willing to shoot the three ball which in turn is opening up opportunities for him to create off the bounce.

Next up for Showtime Hoops
2017 forward David Nickelberry – Windermere, Fla – One of the most underrated prospects in the 2017 class. Nickelberry was recently on campus at UCLA and USC during the month of August. Expect Nickelberry to continue to attract the attention of big time programs around the country.
2018 forward Nassir Little – Oakleaf, Fla – Little was one of the most talked about players this summer after a strong showing at the Elite 32 Session I & II. This 6-foot-6 forward has the ability to play multiple positions where he is most effective attacking the basket with one or two dribbles. Florida recently offered Little at their elite camp. Look for more SEC programs to offer Little this season.
2018 point guard Ronaldo Segu – Olympia, Fla – Regarded as the best lead guard in Florida’s 2018 class, Segu is crafty with good quickness and uses his speed to get to the paint or create separation for his jump shot. He was one of the most consistent player on his team, scoring in transition, off the dribble, and hitting open 3’s as well as creating opportunities for his teammates.
