I thought Casto was on that team as well?

Casto is on the Legends team as well. My bad.

Brendon Lavender does not have to score for his Mesa Mountain View High School team, but the AAU format gives him a little more freedom than usual. Lavender took advantage of this freedom, knocking down numerous three-pointers and displaying an impressive shooting touch.

Lavender seems to do everything with little effort, as the game simply comes to him. He will remind Arizona fans of Luke Walton in that he has a high basketball I.Q. and is a well-rounded player.

Team Texas may have been the most exciting team on Friday due in large part to its guard play. Rotnei Clarke had an average first game but had people standing and cheering in the second. After missing his first attempt, Clarke made his next six three-pointers, finishing with eight of ten made.

Looks like the Portland Legends team dropped their 1st game 61-57. They played at 9:10 today, but no update on the site yet. Anyone know where we can finds games stats for these games?

Really would like to know some stat lines for these games. It has been known that Brock had some pretty bad guard play at Flathead this year. Would like to know how he is doing with some of the best prospects at the guard.

Brock Osweiler is averaging a double-double. He had 20 boards in a game Saturday. He had 19 points in a loss to Team Texas. I'd say, roughly, he is averaging 15 and 11. That's about it.

Anything else worthwhile to report from the past weekend of games?

From Greg Hicks--

Brad Tinsley, 6-3 JR SG/PG Oregon City (Ore.) High. Tinsley played point guard for Team Jones (club team started by Freddie Jones) and he did a good job of it. Hes got an excellent stroke and hes very good at coming off screens and knocking down shots. The question we have on Tinsley is whether hell be able to play the one in college. He appears to have a nice understanding of the game and he made several good passes in the one game we saw. But were not sure about his quickness and ability to defend the one at a high level. Tinsley might struggle athletically at the high major level. Right now, hes being recruited by many mid and high majors. With his size and stroke, its not surprising that the high majors are intrigued. We want to see him play some more this month before we reach any conclusions on an appropriate level.

Victor Rudd, 6-6 SO SF Sylmar (Calif.) High. Rudd is a good-looking young prospect. Hes got long arms and above average athleticism. His shot is accurate to the three-point range and hes a good finisher in transition. Rudd shows unusually good instincts for a young player with his talent. Most kids with his ability want to jack up shots as quickly as possible, but Rudd made consistently good decisions and played well within a team concept. Its still early, but Rudd had a chance to be an elite high major.

Xavier Thames, 6-1 SO SG Pleasant Grove (Calif.) High. We only saw part of one game, but Thames looked good in that portion of the game. Hes got a nice bball body, with some length and good quickness. Weve got him listed as a two for now, but he may be able to play some point guard down the road. One to keep an eye on in the future.

Avery Bradley, 6-2 SO SG Tacoma (Wash.) Bellarmine Prep. This was our first look at Bradley and hes an interesting prospect. Hes got a nice frame, with good lateral quickness. He didnt shoot it much, but appears to have a decent stroke. We only saw him play one game, so we really dont know what kind of feel he has for the game. But he competed well and looks like he may be a guard to watch in 2009.
