Action at the annual NY2LA Sports Spring Extravaganza tipped got underway bright and early Saturday morning and the action in the 16U NY2LA Basketball Association featured a host of thrilling match-ups and performances.


Marcus Domask — 2019 — SG — Ray Allen Select

Showed why he is such a tough match-up on Saturday against Martin Brothers and he displayed the ability to score on the perimeter, but also got in the post and made plays against smaller players as well. He is a really good passer, making the match-up in the post even tougher when opponents come to double him. Defensively, he spent much of Saturday afternoon’s contest guarding a bigger Owen Coburn, a talented 6’10 post player from Iowa and used his strength to push the larger player out of the paint.

Jacob Beenings — 2019 — SG — Minnesota Select
He had a nice game offensively Saturday afternoon against All In Athletics, but it was his performance at the defensive end that really stood out. Offensively, Beenings is quick off the dribble and able to get by his man and into the lane where he uses a runner to finish over bigger players, or looks for the open man. Defensively, he is a nightmare and showcased his those abilities against All In Athletics Saturday afternoon, a team that features a terrific set of guards.

Fillip Bulatovic — 2019 — SG —  All In Athletics
Had a terrific game for All In Athletics and finished with 17 points, including 12 in the second half. Long, rangy 6’4 guard that can handle it, put it on the floor and showcased the ability to get to the bucket and finish. Threw down a power one-handed slam late in the second half that helped give xx some much needed momentum.

DJ Carton — 2019 — SG — Quad City Elite
Drake, Loyal and Wisconsin were in the gym at Minnetonka HS late Saturday to watch one of the highest risers in the NY2LA Basketball Association this spring. After a slow start, Carton warmed up midway through the first half, putting on a show as he drove to the bucket for basket after basket. Has the ability to finish in traffic, shoot the 3 and plays with poise.

Jahiem Holden — 2019 — PG — All In Athletics
Kid is big time off the bounce with the ability to create separation off the bounce. He is super-quick with the ball, has nice handles and can get to the bucket at will. He’s seemingly everywhere defensively and quickly turns opposing turnovers in the backcourt into easy buckets. Holden finished with game-high 21 in a Saturday morning contest against Colorado Premier, then went for 10 Saturday afternoon against the Minnesota Comets. 

Chombi Lambert — 2019 — G — Wisconsin Blizzard
Might have had the best single individual performance on Saturday as he poured in 28 points in a win over Example Sports.  A solid skilled guard with instincts and feel, Lambert was exceptional on Saturday as he finished from multiple levels in dominant fashion.

Donavan Moore — 2019 — G — Illinois Irish
A 6’3 left handed guard, Moore is a terrific athlete that brings a versatile skill set to the court. He is especially good in transition, can handle the ball and has a nice floater in the lane. A left hander, Moore does much of his offensive damage in the lane as he is tough to contain off the bounce and keep out of the lane. Can play above the rim and is a nightmare in transition. He went for 24 in Saturday’s nightcap against the Colorado Titans Gold.

Derek Techam — 2019 — PG — Minnesota Select
After a quiet first half, Teacham put together a big second half in a win Saturday afternoon over All In Williams. He finished with 20 points, 18 coming in the second half as he knocked down four 3-pointers. The performance comes on the heels of a big second half on Friday. He’s one of the premier shooters in the Association and has put together a solid weekend.

Zach Toussaint — 2019 — PG — Kessel Heat Black
The more you watch Toussaint, the more you appreciate his game. Not only does he put up big numbers, but he does it within a small frame and build and does it with flair. He held his own on Saturday against REACH Legend standout Harold Beverly as the two were often matched up against each other.

Malik Willingham — 2019 — G — Minnesota Select
Poured in 23 points in a win over Blue Chip Nation on Saturday and later knocked down four 3-pointers in a loss to Quad City Elite. Willingham showcased the ability to shoot the ball, as well as compete at the defensive end of the court.

Tanner Baird — 2019 — SG — Colorado Titans

Can shoot the 3, moves really well without the ball and is an active player. Showcased a tough mid-range game on Saturday as he hit several pull-up jumpers. Was an honorable mention all-state selection as a sophomore last year in Colorado at Holy Family.

Karsten Broadley — 2019 — F — Minnesota Comets
Kid that has a physical 6’6 frame and is blessed with good size and brings activity to the court. Scored in a variety of ways in a Saturday afternoon game against All In Athletics, finishing the first half with 11 points, then added four more in the second half.

Stevie Creole — 2019 — SG — Colorado Titans Gold
A 6’2 left handed guard, Creoll has an assortment of runners and floaters that he gets off quickly in the paint and around the basket, often catching opponents off guard. Can also shoot the 3 and handles the ball well in the backcourt. He went for a game-high 23 points in Saturday’s night cap against the Illinois Irish

Caden Phillips — 2019 — F — Mercury Elite
Phillips has terrific size with a strong, physical 6’6 frame. He’s listed as a 4, but can also play the 3 and is a versatile defender. Can step out on the wing and handle the ball a little, and can also get in the paint and score around the rim.

Avery Rembrao — 2019 — SG — Colorado Premier
Like this kid. Has some size and length as a 6’4 shooting guard. Moves well without the ball. Can handle it a little, is good in transition and at attacking the bucket. Kind of has a nose for the ball as well. Finished with 19 points in a contest against the Minnesota Comets on Saturday.

David Skogman — 2019 — PF — Ray Allen Select
Skogman is an active 6’8 big man who showcased the ability to step out and knock 3-pointers, and competed against a big Martin Brothers squad at both ends of the floor. He was often matched up with Cole Henry Saturday afternoon, a talented 6’8 forward from Iowa and the two had a terrific individual battle. Skogman finished with a game-high 20 points and ended the game due to the mercy rule with an emphatic two handed slam.

Zachary Weber — 2019 — SF — Mercury Elite
A 6’4 small forward, Weber brings competitiveness and ability to put the ball on the floor and take it to the bucket. He is a versatile player that can attack the bucket off the bounce, or get in the post.

 Andre White Jr, — 2019 — G — All In Athletics
Terrific ball handler and playmaker with an explosive first step, White is almost impossible to stop when he gets the 3 ball working. He had 11 points including a 3 Saturday morning against Colorado Premier, then went off from 3 Saturday afternoon against the Minnesota Comets. He knocked down five 3-pointers and scored 17 points in the first half, setting up many of the 3s off the dribble with a nice crossover that he used to create separation. He finished that contest with a game-high 25.

Christian Wilbourn — 2019 — F/C Quad City Elite
Has good size and is a mobile big guy. Listed at 6’6, Wilburn plays bigger than his listed height. Had some nice finishes around the basket and provided a defensive presence in the paint for Quad City.

Jaeden Zackary — 2019 — G — Kessel Heat Black
A 6’1 guard, Zackary showcased a versatile game at the guard position. Shot 3s, and has a nice pull-up game from the mid-range. Although he is listed as a point guard, Zackary is a very versatile player that can do a little bit of everything well. Gets on the boards, handles the ball, and defends all positions well.
