Monk did his normal thing this weekend, stuffing the stat sheet while consistently opening things up for his teammates. The numbers Monk put up in Houston have become somewhat of an expectation for Monk, as he’s set his individual performance bar very high. His passing seems to improve with every session, as he is becoming more and more comfortable dealing with constant defensive focus. He did everything he needed to do in order to keep his hat in the regular season MVP race.

Corprew picked a good time to start playing like he’s capable of. Boo Williams needed a huge session to retain any sort of Peach Jam contention, and Corprew delivered in a big way, averaging 18 points while proving why he’s on of the best rebounding guards on the circuit. The beauty of Corprew lies in his versatility, as his overall floor game allows him to be effective without scoring the ball. Teaming with Matt Coleman and Curtis Jones has helped take his game – and Boo Williams’ game - to another level

Shamorie Ponds was outstanding in the first two sessions, but he and his scoring prowess were on another level in Houston. The Lightning floor general averaged just under 24 points a game, scoring 26, 24 22 and 23 in four games. He played the best game of his grassroots career in a close loss against a talented MOKAN backcourt, tallying 26 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 7 steals.

Azubuike didn’t bring down any backboards this weekend, but with the efficiency he shoots and dunks the ball, we figure the next one is coming down soon. I n four games, the 6-foot-11 behemoth shot 79.4% from the field and blocked 2.3 shots per game, making a drastic impact on both ends of the floor. There may not be a player in America with the physical attributes on Azubuike, and he used that frame to the best of his ability in Houston.

Charlie Moore was snubbed from the all-tournament teams last session, and we definitely heard the boos. Moore came back with another stellar session, moving up to fourth in the EYBL assists after averaging 5.3 per game in Houston. His basketball IQ is extremely high and he prides himself on scoring within the scheme of the offense. He may be the most underrated point guard in the league, and should be the focal point of defensive gameplans.
