Mike Beasley, Sr. Notre Dame Prep (Kansas St.) – The 6-8 forward who many consider the #1 player in the country, didn’t disappoint. Beasley finished with 26 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks in 22 minutes of action versus Laurinburg.
Jeremy Tyler, Fr. San Diego (Louisville ’10) – AWESOME! Tyler, a 6-10 freshman had possibly the most dominant performance of the weekend. The 15 year old put up a remarkable 25 points, 16 rebounds and five blocks versus CHSAA Holy Cross, then followed that up with another good showing on Monday versus Wings (PSAL-Bronx). Some observers believe he could turn out to be be the best player in the country for 2010.
Alexis Wangmene, Sr. Blair (Texas) – Wangmene had the best showing of all players on Sunday at Baruch. The strong and athletic 6’8 forward punished St. Thomas More with 28 points and 12 rebounds in 26 minutes. Longhorn fans will be happy next year.
Jonny Flynn, Sr. Niagara Falls (Syracuse) – Struggled on Monday (by his standards) versus a tough group of Rice guards, but still managed 22 points. Dominated on Saturday versus Cardozo, scoring 23 points and set a BAB Invitational assist record with 11 and grabbed seven rebounds.
Sylven Landesburg, Jr. Holy Cross (Virginia) – Did what he does…score points. Impressive stat line in blowout victory over San Diego – 24 points and 11 rebounds in 25 minutes.
Isaiah Thomas, Jr. South Kent (Washington) – Phenomenal point guard who played well enough to earn first team honors. Can get anywhere on the court he wants with the ball and unselfish player. Posted 29 points and five assists in overtime loss to a scrappy St. Benedict’s team.
Nathaniel Lester, Sr. Canarsie (Hofstra) – Looked extremely impressive offensively and defensively versus Rutgers-bound Corey Chandler of Newark Eastside. Lester totaled 24 points, eight rebounds and four steals, while holding Chandler to 14 points.
Corey Chandler, Sr. Newark East Side (Rutgers) – After a sub-par performance on Saturday versus Brooklyn’s Canarsie, Chandler bounced back with a strong 26 point effort, including five steals, in an easy win over St. Dominic’s.
Jamelle Horne, Sr. San Diego (Arizona) – Not good on Saturday versus Holy Cross. The Arizona-bound forward struggled in his first game in the Big Apple, but showed signs of dominance versus Wings on Monday. Horne made big offensive and defensive plays in the fourth quarter and overtime to lead his team to a comeback victory and took home MVP honors.
Rashad Bishop, Sr. St. Benedict’s Prep (Cincinnati) – Came out sizzling in game versus South Kent knocking down three 3-pointers to start the game.

Jamine Peterson, PG Notre Dame Prep (Providence) – “Greedy” Peterson looked good in homecoming to New York City. Brooklyn product had several thunderous dunks totaling 25 points in 28 minutes.

Jahmar Young, Sr. Laurinburg (New Mexico St.) – One of the best individual talents in three-day showcase. Silky smooth guard who can score in a variety of ways and has the ball “on a string”. Doesn’t look the part, but could be a sleeper beyond college. Posted 22 points and four steals versus Winchendon.
Keith Spellman, So. Jefferson – Young guard looked very good against a perimeter oriented Our Saviour Lutheran squad. Scored 25 points in 67-46 blowout victory.
