16U All-GymRat CHALLENGE TEAM

Issck Egueh (5-11 guard) Ottawa Phoenix/Ottawa Hillcrest School: “He was part of a standout backcourt that controlled games here. Shoots well off the dribble. A real scorer who was also quick to the hoop and finished there, often with nifty reverse layups. Showed a nice long-range shooting ability, particularly from the corner.” (Brock University)

Jamal Aden (5-11 point guard) Ottawa Phoenix/Ottawa Sir Robert Borden School: “The other half of Ottawa’s stellar backcourt. A talented ball-handler with a very good handle. Variety of dribble moves from cross-over, to hesitation to inside hand changes. Consistently beat defenders off the dribble to distribute. Sees court and makes others better. Also very active defender.” (Flemming college)
