2018 Pearl River CC All-Star Game Report

2018 Pearl River CC All-Star Game Report

M.R. White Coliseum

Pearl River CC

Poplarville, MS

Tuesday April 10, 2018

This was my first time to visit PRCC campus and my it’s a nice one. I ventured around checking things out and the dorms, educational buildings and athletic facilities are top notch. PRCC also stepped outside of the box with their all-star game by inviting and adding MAIS and MHSAA players together. Thanks to the PRCC Coaching staff for having Magnolia Hoops down to cover this event.

Underclassmen Game Rosters and Notes

The underclass game had the all-star game feel that seemed like more of a dunk contest at times. Defense was lacking but there wasn’t a shortage of talent.

East Team

Jaryion Wilkens 6-3 ’19 G St. Martin HS: The twins show so much potential and I keep looking for them to break into that next level at any time. They will be dangerous when the lights come on.

Jaronn Wilkens 6-4 ’19 G St. Martin HS

Elijah Newsome 6-1 ’19 G East Central HS: He looked really good in the early part of the game. The lefty got to the rack with ease.

Jordan Montgomery 6-2 ’19 G Biloxi HS

Colston Daniels 6-1 ’20 G/F Jefferson Davis County HS

Jace Johnson Hancock HS

Elijah Law 5-9 ’19 PG Hancock HS

Luke Ladner 6-2 ’19 G St. Stanislaus HS

Calvin “CJ” Johnson 6-3 ’19 F Long Beach

Roland O’Banner 5-10 ’20 F Lumberton HS

Daylan Young 6-0 ’19 G Lumberton HS

Damon Morgan 6-4 ’19 F Purvis HS

Oren Thompson 5-10 ’19 SF Purvis HS

Cameron McDonald 6-2 ’19 G Stone HS

Caleb McGill 6-5 ’20 F Petal HS: Not much defense played in this game but he showed that he can be a highlight reel player.

Jaywill Thornton ’20 Forrest County AHS

West Team

Dontavius Proby 5-8 ’19 SG Biloxi HS

Michael Carraway 5-10 ’20 G/F Jefferson Davis County HS

Deaundre Price 5-9 ’19 G Purvis HS

Jalone McLaughlin 5-9 ’19 G Stone HS

Treylan “Trey” Smith 6-4 ’20 G Petal HS: The Game MVP showed exactly why he is a D1 prospect in the making. He played well above the rim and displayed a nice shooting touch at times. His handles were on point and he proved that he is hard to hold one-on-one.

Keegan Odum 5-11 ’19 Forrest County AHS

Jayden McCorvey 6-6 ’19 G Pascagoula HS

D’Yasmond “Dee” Booker 6-3 ’19 G/F Pascagoula HS: Dee had a solid showing in the all-star environment. He mostly played his game.

Kyren Galloway ’20 G Bay HS

Kobe Jones 5-11 ’20 G Picayune HS

Jalen Hall ’20 G Picayune HS

Willie Reece 6-0 ’19 G Pearl River Central HS

Caden Thompson 5-7 ’20 G Pearl River Central HS

Jonathan Covan 6-0 ’19 G/F Moss Point HS

Keandre Booker 6-3 ’19 F Moss Point HS: He was very impressive in this outing. The strong bodied, football star build rebounded hard and showed a nice touch on his shot. He played solid defense and proved that he will be one to keep an eye on next season.

Cole Needham 5-7 ’19 PG Lamar Christian HS

Pearl River CC Underclass Game MVP

Treylan “Trey” Smith

6-3 ’19 F

Moss Point

Senior Game Rosters and Notes

This game had the feel of a regular season game with the defensive intensity picked up a notch. It was so good that it ended with a game winning three that was created on a drive and kick play.

East Team

Preston Walker 6-1 SG East Central HS

James Patton 6-3 G/F East Central HS

Dillyn Neely 5-11 SG Biloxi HS

Robert Finklea 6-9 F/C Biloxi HS

DreShun “Dre” Barnes 6-0 G Jefferson Davis County HS

Anthony Jones 6-3 SF Hancock HS

Ahmad Hawthorne 6-3 F Long Beach HS: One of the Game MVP’s had the best play of the night by catching a body on the break. His poster wasn’t the only thing he did though. He had a nice stroke from outside and from mid range. The high athletic, strong bodied forward needs to be looked at by JUCO Coaches.

Caleb Chandler 5-10 G Stone HS

T.J. Henley 6-4 F Petal HS

Jason Morgan 5-9 Forrest County AHS

Kimari Sledge Forrest County AHS

Terrence James 5-10 G Moss Point HS

Matias Pruitt F Hattiesburg HS

Juan Irias 5-9 PG Gulfport HS: I’m not sure if he plays all out when I’m around or if it’s all of the time. He played very hard on the defensive end. He got into the paint and helped set his teammates up for open looks. He scored around the basket when given the opportunity.

Drelon Pittman 6-4 G/F West Harrison HS

Dajon Whitworth 5-10 PG Harrison Central HS: Another possible favorite for the Game MVP. Dub displayed his speed and ball handling by getting by anyone that tried to guard him. He scored from outside and around the basket around contact.

Hamin Purdy 6-3 F Harrison Central HS

West Team

Trez Kennedy 6-1 PG St. Martin: One of my favorite players in the state never stops hustling. One of the best plays of the day for me was when TK jumped an inbounds pass and knocked it towards out-of-bounds. He dove out-of-bounds saving the ball with a behind-the-back pass to one of his open teammates under the basket.

Sedrick White 6-5 F/C Jefferson Davis County HS: Nice size post that had a solid showing on both ends of the court.

Curtis Navis 5-8 PG Purvis HS

Mykah Brown 6-3 PG Petal HS: The other Game MVP played extremely well. He scored with ease around and above the basket. He defended very well one-on-one which lead to several open dunks and lay-ups.

Jonas Burley 6-0 G Pascagoula HS: He has to be mentioned for the defense he played. His on-ball defense was the most annoying in the building as he was a pesky force all game.

Dequan Weatherspoon 6-3 G/F Pascagoula HS

Eric Smith 5-11 G Pascagoula HS

Jaylan Wilson 6-0 G Bay HS

Traylon Lewis 5-11 SG Bay HS

Jordan Griffith G Picayune HS

Delrae Smith 6-0 G Picayune HS

A.J. Banks 6-0 G Pearl River Central HS: The fan-favorite played his normal game. He shot the ball well and scored around the basket. He played solid defense and created the open look on the game winning three.

Jason Long 6-0 G Pearl River Central HS

Clint Hawkins 6-2 F/C D’Iberville HS

Lazarius Ratcliff 6-2 SF D’Iberville HS

Daylyn Croom 5-8 G North Forrest HS
