BELTSVILLE, Md. - The 2013 Rock Summer League kicked off on Thursday night with High Point, Sherwood, Paint Branch, Maret, McNamara, Churchill, O’Connell, Eleanor Roosevelt, Wise, and Bishop Ireton all taking the court.
The first day of action featured plenty of tight games, comeback victories, and a couple of standout performers. Thankfully, none of the games went into overtime as the temperature of the High Point gym seemed to exceed 100 degrees.
Here are some of the players that played well and caught our eye:
2014 6’7 F John King (High Point) - King made his impact felt on the defensive end the entire game with non-stop energy. He never subbed out of the game and picked up a number of steals, blocks, and assists. He also was able to attack the rim off the dribble, score in transition, and looked good rolling off of screens. He’s a long, athletic forward who finished the game with 18 points.
