POSTERIZED: Four-star guard Bryant Crawford dunks on defender at NBPA Top 100 Camp (VIDEO)

Leave a comment

The NBPA Top 100 Camp is currently wrapping up in Charlottesville, Virginia and class of 2015 guard Bryant Crawford might have the top dunk of the event. It doesn’t hurt that Crawford’s dunk came on the top 2015 player in the camp in LSU commit Ben Simmons.

The 6-foot-2 guard is currently regarded as a four-star prospect according to Rivals and he’s the No. 52 player overall in the class of 2015.

Crawford is still open in the recruiting process and had 17 points in a morning session game. The point guard has scholarship offers from Connecticut, Georgetown, Indiana, Louisville, Maryland, Nebraska, Penn State, Rutgers, Seton Hall, South Florida, Texas, Villanova, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

London Perrantes out for Virginia against Ohio State

Virginia guard London Perrantes will miss Tuesday night’s game against Ohio State after having an appendectomy on Sunday (Nov. 29).

In a release from the school, it isn’t known if Perrantes will be able to play on Saturday against William & Mary.

The point guard was averaging 10 points, 5.3 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game this season. Without an experienced guard like Perrantes in the lineup, Virginia could see their better-looking offense slow down a bit. Malcolm Brogdon will probably carry more of the burden on offense and it will be interesting to see who head coach Tony Bennett asks to step up in place of Perrantes.


Purdue’s Rapheal Davis doubtful against Pitt

Purdue senior guard Rapheal Davis will likely miss his second consecutive game on Tuesday night as he recovers from a sprained MCL that he suffered in practice last week.

The Boilermakers travel to unbeaten Pitt tonight to play in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge and Purdue associate SID Chris Forman said on Twitter that Davis is doubtful and couldn’t make it through practice the last few days.

While it will hurt Purdue to be without the reigning Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, Davis is apart of a pretty deep Purdue team that should still be very competitive without him. The senior also missed Purdue’s win over Lehigh on Saturday and it’s probably best to make sure he’s healthy for the Big Ten conference season as the Boilers have big aspirations.
