Ryan Murphy(Dream Vision) highlighted a talented Class 0f 2016 field. The 6’3 Guard appears to have the total package as he can shoot from long range and broke down his defender at will. Later that day Murphy was also selected to participate with the USA U17 Developmental team.
5’10 G Ikenna Ndugba(Expressions) showed up later in the day as he earned himself an all star spot while playing up with the sophomore group.
6’3 Guard Ian Sistare(RI Hawks) and 6’6 F Tyrique Jones(CBC) also established themselves ahead of the pack of talented players. Here is a list of other standout Class of 2016 players.

6’3 G Saul Phiri(VBC) Phiri showed an improved skill set as he was able to beat his opponent off the dribble. Phiri also was able to use his size and strength to bully himself to the basket.
6’2 G Mike Nelson(Sbooting Stars) Nelson was one of the top offensive players throughout the day. Nelson is smooth with the ball in hands as he is able to hit the outside and drive to the basket.
6’6 F Terrell Brown(RI Hawks) Brown continues to improve his skill set. Brown looked more comfortable then ever with the ball in his hands on the low block. Look for Brown to begin playing to his potential this up and coming season.
