ABCD Camp report


Player news and scouting


July 11, 2001
By: BoilerBob


    Augustine was by far the standout I saw. Hunter looked second best although Gaines had better stats for the tourney.

    Augustine: Augustine was by far the most impressive in the games I saw. He scored 14 points and had 12 rebounds. That was his high output for both points and rebounds for the camp, but he did average 7.7 pts and 6.7 rbs (top 10 at the camp). He was solid but not flashy with lots of putbacks, a three-point fg, 4/6 shooting and 5/6 from the line. We could use this guy!

    Hunter: Lived up to his reputation. He showed flashes of excellence (a nice slam, bringing the ball up on the break, six blocks, etc.). Many of the blocks were from guys pushing the ball into the lane too much for one one on play. Overall he was not very active but did have six rebounds. He only had three points. He did not start and played behind a 7'1 Chinese guy (well built too). There was also a Chinese guard on the team that apparently is a junior (a little slow against quick guards but hustled on defense).

    Gaines: Active but did not seem to be around the ball at the right time. He is very solidly built. He had only two points at half in the game I watched. He did average over 10 pts/gm for the camp. He looked a little tired to tell you the truth. He played most of the game.

    Novak: Did not start and only played limited minutes. He looks a lot like Keifer as far as build. He worked hard but was not impressive (2 pts / 3 rbs).

    Buckley: Played on the same team as Novak. They were not on the floor at the same time. He did not start either. He had two points and one rebound. I sat next to Izzo and his assitant for this game and they did not pay Buckley much attention. In fact Izzo chatted with one of the Adidas camp workers almost the entire time. Then John Feinstein invited Izzo to a annual charity tourney featuring Maryland and GW.

    Also I was surprised to see Brandon Cameron on the MSU assistants list of players to watch. I got the impression from another of Izzo comments that they lost a point guard recruit and may be looking for a point guard.
