Carolina Phenoms- 17- U AAU
Keshun Sherrill (PG, 5’10”, 2012, West Rowan HS)
Explosive PG who can get to the basket at will and handle the ball effectively with either hand. Strong upper body strength and tremendous body control in air allows him to finish with contact. Uses his body to shield bigger defenders on drives to the hoop. Draws fouls at a high rate – great FT shooter. Changes speeds well and attacks the rim hard. Good shooter in general – high release, good ball rotation, and gets elevation, especially on his midrange pull-up. Most effective and dangerous in transition. High motor player, but plays under control and is calm and poised as PG. Makes good decisions. Solid, smart, and willing passer – always has eyes up to see floor. Quick and active. Athletic. Good rebounder and great finisher for size. Ability to score in bunches.
AAU coach said that NC A&T has offered and he also has Western Carolina heavily recruiting him. A 3 year starter at West Rowan HS. Averaged 17.5 ppg as a sophomore and was All-County as sophomore.
Moussa Doucara (PF, 6’9”, 2012, North Hills Christian)
Runs the floor and rebounds the ball well, especially on the defensive end. Keeps the ball high and throws good outlet passes. Great shooter with 3 point range. Picks his spots well and is deadly against the zone. Posses major matchup problems because of ability to shoot the basketball. Fades a little bit on jumper, but a solid shooter none the less. More of a finesse player than a power player. Long wingspan. Needs to continue to improve hands and get stronger- struggles against stronger and bigger players. Low motor. Smooth and highly skilled. Best player in the tournament in my opinion. Virtually unguardable by teams represented today.
UNCG, UNCC, Western Carolina, and Charleston are all recruiting him. Played for the Adidas Nations Tournament in 2010 for Team Africa. Family is originally from Mali, but he grew up in Paris.
