Strong guard play highlights Saturday action

IndiHoops Tip-Off provided some good match-ups on Saturday and guard play really stood out. AC Georgia pulled off the upset of Showtime Ballers behind the play of 2018 6-0 CG Kyler Jenkins and tough team defense. Jenkins has deep range and pull-up game to match. He was very effective with the handle and was solid defensively. He is one for D1 college coaches to get on their radar. He was going against two of the better guards at IndiHoops, freshman Naseem Khalid and unsigned senior Sylvain Francisco.

Khalid is a tough hard nosed guard with good passing instincts and ability to get into the lane and finish. He was very effective off the ball screen and has solid decision making ability. Francisco may be the best guard at IndiHoops. He has great speed and quickness and range on his jumper. On attacks to the basket he has the strength and athleticism to finish through contact and above the rim. 

Other guards who shined.

Jordan Walker 2017 5-9 PG (Stampede) He continued his tough play, using a very effective change of pace and quicks to get into the lane. He has been excellent on pick-n-roll action.

Sharife Cooper 2020 5-10 (AOT) The game ended in controversy but Cooper was the catalyst in their win over E1T1. He is currently slight of body but his craftiness and smarts keeps him out of trouble. 

Anfernee Simons 2018 6-3 (Breakdown) The Louisville commit plays at a great pace and when his team was down he turned up the volume to turn the tide against the Atlanta Celtics. The biggest I love about his game his ability to defend. He was key in slowing Celtic SG Rashod Bateman who has had a very good weekend.
