I spent the early part of this morning once again
Dav” observing the 2009 Lobo Elite Camp. Of course last night we talked
some of the players that caught my eye, and since we can’t do pictures,
thought I would do the exact same thing again.
How old is this
picture of Scott Stiegler?
I was joined by KKOB talk
show radio host Scott Stiegler
today as we were taking a look at today’s campers. So some of the words
here might be his not just mine, but hey even a radio guy sometimes
with good lines!
Isaiah Rusher once again showed that he is a force to be
reckoned with. Today he not only showed his physical ability as he and
Alamos C Alex Kirk battled this morning. That was one of the epic
doubt of the morning no doubt. The play of Rusher’s day so far was him
high for a rebound and ripping it from both men and while he took one
did a behind the back bounce pass to the cutter to the hoop for the
was funny because Stigs and I were talking about how
Isaiah was going to need time to learn the college game, etc. etc. etc.
Stigs said after this trip down the court, “well there is something to
about natural ability as well.”
Austin Etherington Indiana Elite- Austin came to play today,
his outside shot was on today and all he needed was one step and he
one from behind the arc and he has no problem getting physical as he
drive to the hoop. His best play was a drive to the hoop where one of
men stepped in front as they collided Etherington made a wrap around
the cutting big man for the…FLUSH! On defense Etherington got away with
mugging as he and Lobo PG Jamal Fenton went for a loose ball, Austin
shoulder into Fenton knocking him off his feet and secured the ball.
Kirk Los Alamos- Like I said he and Isaiah Rusher had
some serious battles down low. Kirk gave as good as he got… Rusher
up the Hilltopper and Kirk would step back with his shot and knock them
Both played solid defense, but they also have some offensive game as
Garth- Nate was animated today and his game took off,
hitting open offensive players, while getting into everyone’s grill on
He did pick up a little bit of a “frustration foul” but settled down
and had a
nice session this morning.
Mardracus Wade- Stiegler and I were watching Wade play today
as he has just grown so much this last year. His body is that of a man
his game has really elevated. He has a good shot and really controls
of the game well today.
Obij Aget- The 7 footer showed some serious inside game
today making himself available to any guard that would hit him with a
also mopping up missed shots as well. Impressive day for Mr. Aget.
best play of the game was watching the 7’2” David Nyarsuk
go coast to coast. Unfortunately he got called for traveling but holy
when you are 7 foot plus one stride equals a ton of space!
