NBPA Camp: Day Two, Afternoon, Part B

Cliff Alexander

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Andrew Harrison's passing stood out during the first session of NBPA Camp on Friday, as did Cliff Alexander's effort on the glass.

Andrew Harrison, PG/SG – After a so-so start to the day yesterday, Harrison had it working on day two. In fact, Harrison put together the perfect mix of scoring and passing ability. In the second half of his morning session game, Harrison tossed out the rock and created easy scoring opportunities in the paint for his teammates. He's a tremendous passer with great vision.

Harrison, of Richmond (Tex.) Travis, is such a talented scorer that he often times draws a second defender, which can lead to scores for players on his team. He finished with 11 points and seven rebounds during the first game of the day. He's averaging nine points and six assists game through three sessions.

Markel Crawford, SG – The native of Tennessee was able to shake free for jump shots during the morning session. Crawford, a 6-foot-3 guard, buried a few clean looks from behind the three-point stripe and also tossed in a three-ball off the dribble. In all, Crawford finished with 16 points during the morning session.

Tyler Roberson, PF – Roberson's effort Friday morning stood out. The 6-foot-7 active power forward was active on the glass, ran the floor and contested shots. On top of that he scored in the paint and made a mid-range jump shot. Roberson has good instincts and is quick off his feet, both of which help him from a rebounding standpoint. Roberson finished with 14 points and six rebounds during his third camp game of the weekend.

Roddy Peters, PG – The emergence of Peters, a 6-foot-4 lead guard, continues. His morning session game was among the best performances I've seen from him. He's a big, physical lead guard that sees the court quite well. Always in attack mode, Peters has good speed and can play through contact when he's attempting to get to the rim. His vision is pretty good and in a selfish atmosphere, Peters looked great as a distributor tossing out six assists.

Kuran Iverson, SF – In the past, Iverson, a 6-foot-8 versatile forward, has been given a hard time about his effort level on the court. Friday morning he stepped on the floor and played with energy. Iverson ran the court, showed his ball skills in transition and actively pursued rebounds. His best move of the day was a coast-to-coast finish were he glided past a defender in the lane for a score. He finished with 10 points and five rebounds.

Kyle Washington, C – The southpaw out of Lakeville (Conn.) Hotchkiss School played with energy and passion Friday morning. In a class in need of bigs to step up, Washington has a chance to fit that billing. The 6-foot-9 big man has added weight to his frame, has become more confident in his scoring and ran the floor with purpose. Washington hit a three off the catch, tossed in a right jump hook and scored through contact in the paint. Washington finished with 15 points and seven rebounds during a morning session game.

Sterling Brown, SF – In a competitive morning game, Brown, a 6-foot-5 wing out of Illinois, showed his all around game. Brown defended well, hit the glass and scored the ball in transition. He finished with 11 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Brown doesn't force shots, but if there's an opportunity to attack the rim, he'll do so.

Keith Pinckney, PG – One of the surprises of camp is this 6-foot lead guard out of Summerville (S.C.) Pinewood Prep standout. Pinckney has very good speed, that he has knows how to control in both transition and in the half court set. Pinckey buried a three-pointer during the morning session, but was more concerned with making good decisions with the ball and finding teammates. He's certainly one to watch in the 2014 class.

Cliff Alexander, C – Picking up where he left off at Pangos All-American Camp, Alexander was a monster in the lane during the second half of his morning game. Alexander used his strength and athleticism in that paint to reel in 11 rebounds. Half of his rebounders were of the offensive variety and nearly all of them turned into dunks or lay ups. His effort and energy is always high and his aggressiveness in the paint in unmatched by his peers.
