The camp would conclude with an exciting finals match-up between the Spurs and the Thunder. The stars came out to play and matched the intensity of their coaches who could be heard leading their teams from all the way across campus. Many expected a game that would be decided by a buzzer beater as both teams were evenly matched on paper.  And for a half it was, but the Spurs took complete command of the contest midway through the third quarter.  In the end, the Spurs would walk away with a resounding victory.  Coming away with Playoff MVP honors was Ian Schupp who did it all on both ends of the court for Coach Tony Jackson and company.

In the NCAA, the undefeated Duke team, coached by Jason Mittelman, would keep their pristine record in tact by winning the finals matchup behind the stellar play of Thornton Scott.  Scott is definitely a player to watch as he enters high school next year.  Despite a strong effort by Kansas’ dynamic backcourt, Steve Lai and Brandon Allen, the Kansas team was unable to overcome the talented Duke team.

Congratulations to all our award winners!  The coaches deliberated long and carefully into the final evening to decide the winners of the camp awards.   There were quite a few splits amongst the coaching staff, which meant there were players who were in the conversation for a camp award to the very end but ultimately did not get that final nod.  Credit certainly goes out to all the players who made the decisions tough for the coaching staff.

The highlight game of the day was definitely the Orange and White Classic with many of the camp’s top draft picks performing as they were expected to by their coaches and their peers. There were few surprises as to who made the team.  And then the spotlight was on the players.  The NCAA All-Star game would set the tone for the evening as the stars came out to put on a good show for everyone.  Much to the delight of everyone in the gym, Brandon Allen, who became a favorite of all coaches and players with his tenacious play on both ends of the floor and his unselfish game, had the entire audience going crazy.  His slick dribbling and ability to dice through an entire All-Star roster it seemed at times had the crowd on its feet often.  Not to be outdone was Thornton Scott who used the game as a platform to showcase his ridiculous range.  Scott bombed several threes from well past the NBA 3-point line.  The two definitely stole the show.   As for the NBA, they were not to be outdone.  The Hawaiian contingent (Chris Dillard, Zachary Reeves, and Curtis Tavares) gave the east coast a good show but many of the locals starred as well.  Some of the All-Star standouts included Josh Oliver, Markel Gray and Thai Scott.  Taking All-Star Game MVP honors were Keith Braxton of the NBA and Brandon Allen of the NCAA.

As for the day’s playoff games, the results mirrored that of the opening night draft.  The playoff seeding was almost a complete reversal of the draft order.  The games would play out similarly.  In each match-up the team who had a higher draft pick to begin camp would go on to lose the quarterfinal match-up.  The semifinal matchup yielded similar results.  After two intense rounds of playoff action, the two teams left standing were the Spurs and Thunder. The finals match-up figures to be a good one with both teams winning their regular season games in rather convincing fashion.

And let’s not forget about the younger stars as well.  Led by the phenomenal play of do-it-all guard, Brandon Allen (an absolute steal in the second round the of the NCAA draft), Kansas would coast to the finals where they will meet an undefeated Duke team that features a balanced attack by MOP candidate Thornton Scott.  Brandon Allen did it all this day.  He was able to lock down some of the better offensive weapons in all of camp and did so convincingly.  He was also far from being a one-trick pony.  Easily the frontrunner for camp MOP, he used his playmaking ability, court vision and unselfish attitude to set up teammates all day long.  And yes, he did his fair share of scoring as well.
