Angel Nunez (6-10 FG 2-5 3FG 2-2 FT, 16 points, 5 rebounds)White Team MVP. Nunez was very impressive last night en route to winning the MVP. He showed he can knock down the 3, pass the ball crisply, and rebound in traffic. He needs to add weight, but that’s something he can do in the off-season. He confirmed to LSL that he will be on campus in June. That is crucial for building team chemistry as they build for a special 2011-12 season.
Chane Behanan (5-11 FG 0-3 3FG 1-2 FT, 11 points, 11 rebounds) I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more double-doubles from Chane. He is an animal in the paint and has the quickness to score in the post and create space for jumpers. He is exactly what next year’s team needs-a fierce rebounder. This kid is a lock to start at the 4 as he will be creating havoc on both sides of the court.
Zach Price (3-4 FG 0-0 3FG 0-0 FT, 6 points, 11 rebounds) Price was a pleasant surprise. He has high-energy, good hands, and is not afraid to scrap for rebounds. His plays reminds me a lot of Van Tresse, except Price has a better offensive game, although his still needs polishing. It will be fun to watch him play in the Kentucky All-Star series as he is healed from a deep thigh bruise that hampered him a lot of this season. However, it will be hard for him to crack the rotation at the 5 with Jennings, Dieng, and potentially Woods.
