    Was it a scrimmage or not? Was that pointed out in the original post?

    scrimmage or not, Washington can shoot and thats a valuable skill. still haven't seen much in the way of answering whether he can play the point. I hope he develops that part of his game, but I assume since the staff has continued to pursue pgs that they feel we still need one.

    If I were you, thankfully I am not, I might try reading an article before posting about something.

    Its a writers issue, not a reader issue. sierra canyons first basketball game is more than a month away. you didn't notice that both teams were wearing practice jerseys in the video?

    My son played in the "super bowl" this past weekend. No, it wasn't the actual super bowl, but the sponsor of the event called it as such, so by your logic it must have really been the super bowl.

    you really think two of the top 20 teams in the country are going to play and only 100 people are going to show up to watch? again, hs basketball in the state of california doesn't begin for another month. the event isn't even listed on the athletic/basketball site for either Mater dei or sierra canyon. Both teams records are, you guessed it, 0-0 at the moment.

    again, scrimmage or not, washington can shoot.

    I think we all can agree that Washington can shoot. My question is whether Holt2 can keep him now that he's out west and poised to open lots of eyes.

    247 rank 255? :rofl:

    I will actually agree that video looked like an more of an open gym type environment and the score seems to indicate that as well. However, looking in a vacuum at the skill set and shooting form, I feel very fine evaluating Duane's immense talent. Again, check out the plays I called out at 1:05 and I think 2:50.

    Also, going back in this thread I realize I have complimented him on both his ability to get to the rim/finish in contact and now his insane shooting. That's...good.

    The ball handling out top where the defender got into him and he dribbled it oob, was not so good, but there is a lot to work with here. He'll be a scoring star.

    Oh, yeah, I agree and wasn't suggesting looking at this video had no value. But coaches are going to coach a real game different than a scrimmage, trying different lineups, different defenses, etc and thats why its relevant to point it out. as has been said, he's a really good shooter. Not sure I've seen anything that shows he's going to be able to play pg at this level and we really need someone that can.

    He showed plenty enough handles to run the point. He doesn't have to be a starter right off, just get the offense going. Don't know what he did in that clip that looks weak? You saw nothing in PG skills? :rofl: The single play alone where he drives with his left hand and dishes it out to the wing for a three is enough to show you where he's at. But, you probably thought Mike Conley looked like a good athlete who couldn't play point, also.

    Congrats, to D-Washington. :boogie:

    IDK, there has to be a reason the staff has been banging on the door of just about every unsigned top 100 PG.

    Washington is a great shooter with average athleticism (for a power 6 recruit). His ball handling is OK, but he's not a facilitator, he's a shooter. Muhammed is probably more of a combo guard than Washington, but the staff has been scrambling for a PG, so I trust their take on what positions they still need to fill.

    Because even counting Washington, we're really thin, maybe? One injury, and you're done next year.
