  1. I’m not seeing my man Andrew name on the players list missing a key name !!!

  2. TW says:

    Tomley has grown, he is now 6’3****

  3. Canada Basketball Ace says:

    Not familiar with most of these names, but Dort and possibly, Kirkwood and Moncreiffe are really the only players with a hot or an NBA chance.

    I am sure to missing another person or two as I don’t know the class of 2019 or 2019 that well beyond the top 5 on those classes.

    Goodluck guys,
