Florida commit and 2015 guard KeVaughn Allen put together a strong week at last week’s Nike Peach Jam. The 6-foot-2 guard scored in a variety of different ways, defended on the perimeter and showed some skill passing the ball as well.
Allen’s play is a big reason why Team Penny made it to the championship game before losing to the New Jersey Playaz. Here are some of his best highlights from the week at Peach Jam, courtesy of Courtside Films.
Marquette freshman forward Henry Ellenson won the Marquette Madness slam dunk contest on Friday night with a between the legs dunk.
The 6-foot-10 Ellenson, the top recruit in Steve Wojciechowski’s freshmen class, defeated sophomore Sandy Cohen, fellow freshman Sacar Anim and Wally Ellenson, his older brother.
Ellenson joins the Golden Eagles as the No. 11 overall recruit in the Class of 2015.
Late Night in the Phog is typically a night to remember for Kansas fans. For Kansas student Jerrod Martin Castro, Friday night’s event is one he won’t forget.
Castro, a sophomore, was selected as a contestant for a $10,000 giveaway. The only thing standing in the way of a big payday was a half-court shot. Brennan Bechard, the Kansas director of basketball operations, attempted the long-distance shot and hit nothing but net.
Kansas head coach Bill Self signed a $10,000 check on the spot.
