The JD Lewis Center is one of the best places to find hidden basketball talent – so much so that several big name recruits in recent years have emerged and committed to top universities such as UNC, NC State and West Virginia. We scouted the JD Lewis Fall League this year and saw several promising players – William Walker and Quinton Ray to name a couple. Here’s some highlights from the 2011 championship game.

You can also read our scouting reports from the game here.

Every summer across the country, basketball players who are in their offseason play in Pro-Am events and tournaments across the country, getting a chance to work on specific skills that they want to improve for the coming season. The Triad Pro-Am is one such event, with past seasons featuring Chris Paul, James Johnson, Rusty Larue and this year’s lottery pick Al-Farouq Aminu.

Here’s some video of a few highlight from the 2010 playoffs, specifically the final four, in games which featured former UNC star Rayshawn Terry, several current Wake Forest players including Tony Woods, JT Terrell, Travis McKie and C.J. Harris, former Wake players such as Craig Dawson and L.D. Williams, and several other college and pro players.

Impressive play from Jahron Giddings, Rashaun Davis, Justin Manns and several others. A.J. Highsmith, Reyshawn Terry and Craig Dawson were impressive outside shooters.

Also, any players who are in this video and are not mentioned by name, hit me up and I’ll make sure you get credited. You can find me on Twitter, or email me directly.
