With Jay Wright in attendance at Philadelphia University, many of country's elite talent not involved at the Nike Peach Jam was put on display Wednesday night. While Wright himself, or some of his assistants will likely head to the Peach Jam over the weekend, they at least saw a little bit of two recruits who would fit in well with Villanova.
The WE-R-1 big man, who Alex Kline said may not be considering Villanova anymore (though I don't accept Bridges' commitment as a logical reason as to why), finished with 5 points on 2-5 shooting (1-2 3FG) to go along with 7 rebounds and 3 steals.
2014 big man Ben Bentil playing hard in the post, rebounding and passing well. Even put the ball on the floor in transition. #Breakout— Breakout Classic (@BreakoutClassic) July 10, 2013
Moore logged 17 minutes and went 2-4 from the field (0-1 3FG, 1-2 FT) and finished with 5 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist and one block. He's getting decent reviews from the scouts in attendance and is hearing from both Seton Hall and Rutgers in recent weeks.
Very impressed with Quadri Moore's skill level. Looks like a brute but has the skill level of a stretch power forward. Intriguing player.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) July 11, 2013
Jones was efficient playing alongside Maryland commit Romelo Trimble. He finished 4-6 from the field (0-1 3 FG, 1-2 FT) for 9 points to go with 2 assists, 2 rebounds and a block.
Matched up against Moore's team, Clover struggled from the field with a 1-5 performance (0-2 3FG, 2-2 FT) for 4 points, but otherwise filled up the stat sheet nicely with 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals in 18 minutes.
