Dayton, Ohio — Basketball was back in the Dayton area on a Sunday afternoon, as Coach Render hosted his second “rec” held at the Flyght Academy. The event lasted around 3 hours and had some of the best talent in the Dayton City League and surrounding conferences.
Some new and old faces stuck out. Thurgood Marshall guard Anthony McComb who will be a senior next year showed that he’s been working over the quarantine as his dribble moves and shot are both still very smooth.
Incoming freshman, Mason Shrout from Preble Shawnee was also in attendance. Shrout will be one of the top incoming freshman in the Dayton area, his shot and dribble moves are very smooth and he should be able to dominate the SWBL early on.
Belmont’s trio of talent was there as well. Big man Shawn Phillips, and twins Antaune and Antone Allen. Phillips showed some improvement from last season as he continues to develop as a finisher. He was recently ranked as a top 50 player in the country by 247 Sports. Antaune Allen was one of the top freshman last year in the area. He had a couple of nice dunks and some good transition layups, but his brother Antone stole the spotlight. He hit shot after shot and was one of the top performers at the event.
Another player that played well at the rec was former Beavercreek guard Isaiah Moore. Moore moved to North Carolina this past summer, but would have been a big part of the Beavers’ team had he stayed. Moore dominated the rec scoring and driving with ease. It’s unclear where he will play next season but if a team in the Miami Valley lands him they would be very lucky.
The next rec is scheduled for next Sunday and we will have coverage for that as well.
