The 2013 NY2LASPORTS Under Armour Summer Jam came to a close on Sunday. As titles were awarded in the 15, 16, and 17U divisions, Sunday featured some memorable performances. One of those efforts belonged to Romelo Trimble and DC Assault, who walked away with the 17U championship. We finish our coverage from the Summer Jam with a recap of day five..

Top Performers
Ahmad Rorie – 2014 – PG – Q6 All-Stars
6-0 – Lincoln HS – Tacoma Washington
Rorie scored a game-high 22 points for the Q6 All-Stars in a tight win over DTA. The 6-0 guard is quick with the ball and scores in a variety of ways. The California commit was a jet in the open floor, scoring time after time in transition, and also has great ball handling skills, which he uses to get around defenders and clear room for himself to get a shot off.

Byron Hawkins – 2015 – PG – DC Assault
6-1 – Good Counsel HS – Fort Washington, MD
Hawkins stepped up in the 17U title game for DC Assault, scoring a team-high 22 points. With his team struggling offensively in the first half, Hawkins hit some 3-pointers to help keep his team in the game. As the game got closer and turned into a grind, Hawkins was able to get to the free throw line and help DC Assault grab the lead and then keep it in the second half.

Jaekwon Carlisle – 2016 – G – Philly Pride
5-10 – Imohtep Charter – Philadelphia, PA
Carlisle scored a game-high 25 points for Philly Pride in a two-point loss the Houston Defenders. The sophomore guard was dynamic in isolation settings, getting to the rim and also pulling up for mid-range jumpers. Carlisle also showed his range, knocking in a couple of 3-pointers Sunday morning as well.

Jarvis Garrett – 2014 – PG – TP Elite
5-11 – Notre Dame Prep (MA) – Milwaukee, WI
Garrett and TP Elite got off to a slow start Sunday against Q6 All-Starts, but towards the finish, the 5-11 guard elevated his game. Garrett led a late rally and hit the game-winning lay-up with just two seconds left to give TP Elite a two-point win. The senior guard finished with a team-high 15 points.

Riley LaChance – 2014 – SG – Ray Allen Select
6-1 – Central HS – Brookfield, WI
Lachance had a game-high 14 points to lift Ray Allen Select over the Wisconsin Swing in the 17U semifinals. After a slow start, Lachance picked it up with a nice second half, hitting a couple of 3-pointers and mid-range jumpers in a tough defensive battle. The 6-1 guard wasn’t done there. Lachance erupted for 39 points in the 17U title game against DC Assault, doing all he could. However Lachance and Ray Allen Select would fall to Assault by five points.

Romelo Trimble – 2014 – G – DC Assault
6-3 – Bishop O’Connell HS – Upper Marlboro, MD
Trimble didn’t have his best shooting performance in the 17U championship game, but the 6-3 combo guard made some big plays down the stretch to lead DC Assault to the win over Ray Allen Select. Trimble hit some deep 3-point shots against the 2-3 zone and carried the load down the stretch, icing the game at the foul line. Although DC Assault trailed for the majority of the game, the Maryland commit had ice in his veins throughout.

Stock Boosters
Deshawn Corprew – 2016 – G/F – Team Loaded
6-6 – Frank Cox HS – Virginia Beach, VA
Corprew is a strong, athletic forward that powers through defenders and finishes well at the rim. The 6-6 swing man gets out in the open floor and attacks the hoop hard. In a blowout win over Quad City Elite in 16U play, Corprew scored a team-high 13 points in limited duty.

Joshua Stamps – 2015 – SG – D-Rose All-Stars
6-5 – Curie HS – Chicago, IL
Stamps dominated a Protect This House semifinal game against Team Thad in 16U play. The 6-5 junior scored 31-points in the win. Stamps is a long wing that can play in transition as well as spot up from beyond the arc.

Mongo Cornett – 2016 – F/C – Houston Defenders
6-7 – Westfield HS – Houston, TX
Cornett led the Houston Defenders to a 2-point win over a deep Philly Pride team Sunday morning. The 6-7 big man scored a team-high 19 points and controlled the middle throughout the game. His presence inside often forced the opposition to take shots from beyond the arc as he was able to block or alter shots when he was challenged inside.

Shanorie Ponds – 2016 – G – Juice All-Stars
5-11 – Thomas Jefferson HS – Brooklyn, NY
Despite his team struggling for much of the game in the 15U semifinals against Team Thad, Ponds’ offense was not lacking. The 5-11 combo guard scored a game-high 17 points in a losing effort. The lefty loves to execute in the mid-range and can make some difficult shots.
