Sunday, the The Best of 757 Basketball Showcase had some dynamic players attending, learning from some of the best coaches in the area. The All-Showcase Team was selected based on their performance in the combine testing, their work ethic, their display of skills, and their performance in the team games at the culmination of the event.
The stand out on Sunday was James Contreras, point guard from Ocean Lakes, whose footwork amazed the coaches. Chris Clarke of Cape Henry showed why he is one of the top players in the area. At both ends of the court Chris Clarke passed the ball well, rebounded, and slashed in the paint to make some very creative lay-ups. He was very quick on the break away and his vertical was astounding.
Deonta Knight showed that listening pays off by listening to instruction and making adjustments. His play improved through the day.
Over all the ten All-Showcase players represent the Best of the 757 well, giving the event a well rounded team of top players that truly showcases what Southeastern Virginia has to offer.
