As is the case every year, Ty Kish’s MSHTV Camp attracted a great deal of talent in grades 5th-9th. Over 4oo campers made the trek to the Pacers Athletic Center near Indianapolis, Indiana and were treated to a high level of competition and an impressive amount of media. Below is a complete list of standout performers we identified. However, there were several players who we beleive deserve special mention.
It’s certainly no surprise that the Pughsley boys are a dominate duo, as they routinly excel at every event they attend. Deloni Pughsley (5’4″/PG/2029/Gahanna, OH) and Zander Pughsley (4’4″/PG/2031/Gahanna, OH) both created a buzz in Indianapolis and proved difficult to guard. Not only can the brothers score the rock at an elite level, they both defend at a high rate. In case you wonder why the Pughsley are so good, because no one works harder that theses 2 kids!
While we are talking about elite guard play, we have to mention guys like Kam Potts (4’9″/PG/2031/Oakland, CA), Eric “EJ” Blount (4’8″/PG/2030/Memphis, TN), Tanner Morgan (5’2″/PG/2030/Atlanta, GA), Jordan McDaniel (5’4″/PG/2029/Detroit, MI) and Desmond Douglas (5’3″/CG/2030/Houston, TX), all of whom are shifty, change speed and direction well; are aggressive, with elite ball skills and scoring ability.
A special shout out to goes Deo Dixon (5’5″/PG/2030/London Ontario, CN), who was a force! This kid was strong, fast and almost unstoppable getting to the basket. In addition, he is an elite 3-level scorer who is difficult to guard. Although he’s not a super shifty guard, his package of combo moves make him effective. Oh yea, Dixon is an elite defend with complete shut down ability!
We also really liked Trace Lopez (6’8’/PF/2028/Gilbert, AZ), who was seen dunking everything on day 1 of the camp. Lopez has great size, has a solid frame and he plays above the rim. Floy Kuminga (6’6″/SG/2028/Charlotte, NC) is another one to watch going forward, as the explosive combo guard is a walking bucket. David Whitaker (6’0″/SG/2029/Atlanta, GA) was a monster as well, as he used his size, strength and athleticism to put up big numbers. Moreover, his on-ball defense is a impressive, as is his ability to handle the rock, knock down catch and shoot treys, and finish at the rim at a high rate.
Finally, Rashon Robinson (6’1″/PG/2029/Toronto, CN) was also impressive with his ball skills and ability to shoot off the bounce at a high rate. Robinson has a polished game and he has a good feel for the game. Surely by now, you have seen the numerous highlight video generated by the event, which sets them apart from like events! Congratulations to Ty Kish and his staff for putting together another quality event!
