Belleville Tigers Pre-season Scrimmage Recap

29 Nov

Ann Arbor Huron– The River Rats will run through 6’4″ senior guard Xavier Cochran, but it helps to have additional role players.  Fellow seniors Brian Walker and Dave Wren also displayed their own individual abilities.  Edwards in a 6’5″ stretch-four forward type of player, he hit a few mid-range jump shots and the day, but also faced and took defenders off the dribble to the basket.  His classmate Dave Wren is a do it all guard that finds ways to impact a game.  He can rebound, push the ball on the break, come away with steals, finish some acrobatic moves at the basket, and shoot the three pointer, a type of player all coaches would want on their team.

Belleville– 6’3″ junior point guard Mike Bruce is the leader of a promising Belleville Tiger squad.  Bruce isn’t the most athletic/explosive of guards, but he’s a high IQ player who more often than not is going to make the right play offensively or defensively.  He can serve as Belleville’s primary scorer, and distribute the ball to teammates.  Bruce’s backcourt mate, 6’1″ freshman Davian Williams, is going to be a name in Michigan to be remember for years to come.  Williams first made a name for himself in the AAU circuit with Michigan United playing up in the ninth grade division.  His jump shot has drastically improved since the Summer time, to the point where now he can hit three pointers with regularity, but he still knows his strength to attack the rim.  He also has developed the ball skills needed to excel at the next level and can serve as a playmaker at times for his teammates. Davian’s athleticism should give him the potential to guard both point guards, and shooting guards at a high level.

New Haven– Anytime you have two 6’8″ players, your most likely going to win the rebounding differential on a team.  New Haven juniors Jerry Ben and Innocent Nwyoko both made their presence made in the paint on the day.  The Central Michigan commit Nwyoko is long and active, who can defend the rim with regularity to go with a solid touch around the basket offensively.
