Matt Mayock 6’5 Wing 2023 (Westtown School): Mayock spaced the floor effectively with Little as well in Westtown’s win over Friends’ Central. Has good form with a very quick release on his shot making it difficult for opponents to contest. Mayock had a trio of three-pointers on drive and kicks from the wing and near the top of key. Puts opponents in an extremely difficult position deciding to help on a teammate of his in the lane or staying at home against him. Also hit another trey on the move when getting the ball on a hand-off that was well beyond the arc. Mayock was very efficient making four of his five threes to finish with 12 points total for the game. Defensively, Mayock is consistently in the correct spots on his rotations when one pass away or when coming over from the help side. While he needs to work on his strength and athleticism, it will be interesting to continue following his growth over these next few years being in Westtown’s well respected player development program.
Darius Isaac 5’10 Point Guard 2022 (Springside Chestnut Hill Academy): Isaac ran the show effectively in Springside Chestnut Hill Academy’s win against Episcopal Academy. Creates shots at a very good rate for others with his playmaking ability. Isaac was especially effective getting into the paint to find teammates for good looks throughout the game.

Had four steals in the game to go with his 16 points.
Ron Brown III 5’10 Combo Guard 2024 (Springside Chestnut Hill Academy): Brown showed why he should be a freshman to keep an eye on playing a key role in Springside Chestnut Hill Academy’s victory over Episcopal Academy. Brown has solid form on his shot helping the ball to come smoothly off his hands. Did a good job opening up driving lanes for Isaac in the second half, hitting a pair of spot up treys from the corner and wing.

He also showed some playmaking off the dribble after breaking Epsicopal’s press, finding a teammate for an and-1 when an opponent collapsed on him in the lane. Brown had his ups and downs defensively not giving consistent intensity or being out of position, but those are things he should be able to improve as he gains more experience at the high school level.

Parks is also a good ball handler who had a pair of nice plays pushing the ball in transition using a step through move to draw a shooting foul, as well as getting by an opponent near half court playing tight defense to hit a runner as the clock was winding down in the first quarter. He was effective when posting up on the block as well. Got good position on an opponent in the first half to hit a jump hook off the glass with his right hand, in addition to using a nice drop-step in the second half to draw a shooting foul. Showed his athleticism when he out jumped an opponent who was in very good position defending an alley-oop play against him to come down with the ball for a layup.
