TAVARES, FL — Day 2 of the Travel Team Jamboree did not disappoint, with just as much high-level action as Saturday! Here are some of the standout guys from the Sunday games:
1 Family 2024 6’2, Lorenzo Cason (Victory Christian) walked away with arguably the best performance of the weekend. The strong, powerful guard is able to light it up from anywhere on the floor. Cason has a dangerous combination of skill and strength, aided by a super tight handle and a killer’s mentality. His teammates also showed out. 2024 Isaac Celiscar (Winter Haven) was a relentless force around the basket and proved he plays with one of the best high-motors in the country. 2024 Isaiah Brown (Orlando Christian Prep) was an effective threat from the perimeter with the ability to dominate going to the basket as well. SOH Elite’s 2025 Shon Abaev (Calvary Christian Academy) is able to shoot the lights out from anywhere on the floor. The 6’6 guard can also run an offense efficiently, score going downhill, and is a reliable, switchable defender. Abaev walked away having cemented his spot as one of the players to watch in Florida this year. SOH Elite big man Ethan Lathan, Abaev’s teammate at Calvary Christian, also had some impressive flashes. The 6-10 big is a great athlete with solid instincts around the basket and great defensive anticipation. He can score in bunches around the basket and is a constant lob threat. Team Florida’s Julian Clarke (Lake Highland Prep) also turned heads with his impressive scoring ability and maturity. Not to mention his electric speed on both ends of the floor. BTI Elite’s Trey Murray (Wesley Chapel) made some noise with a big array of creative finishes and his ability to create for others.
Lake Worth High School teammates Calvin Sirmans and Marvin Golf showed their high IQ play for Florida Pro 17U, and reminded coaches that they are still available. Sirmans is a high-IQ point guard with a relentless motor and the ability to punish defenders around the rim. Golf is an intriguing guard with the ability to score downhill and finish well around the rim. Their FL Pro teammate Wesley Roark (Gulf Coast) had a great weekend. The 6-3 guard proved that he is much more than a pure shooter (which he is). He can body up to bigger defenders, hit tough shots off the dribble, and score going downhill with the best of them. A more under-the-radar talent, coaches should take note of Roark for the rest of the summer.
Wellington Wolves’ 6-6 point guard Elyjah Freeman (Wellington) showed that he can do a little bit of everything at his size. He’s a great distributor, finisher and has intriguing length for his position. The Wolves’ Reggie Reinhardt (Wellington) turned heads with his shooting confidence and constant attack on offense. And he is a tank. This team has a lot of really good talent. Showtime Ballers’ Jordin Bell (Brooks DeBartolo) showed his ability to attack defenses at a high level and make good reads for his teammates. STAT Academy’s EJ Horton (Bartow) showed his aggressive, attack-first mentality and ability to make the right play down the stretch. He is a good-framed guard who can shoot and play above the rim when necessary, often showing his leaping ability and ability to score in bunches.
1 Family had one of Sunday’s best young frontcourts, led by Edgewater’s Myles Mayfield and DME Academy Regional’s Gabe Stewart. Mayfield, a 6-8 forward, was an absolute menace around the rim. The athletic forward could not be stopped in transition and was able to generate the fast break with his developing ball handling. Stewart was a solid, big-bodied interior presence with the ability to move defenders on the block and finish with ease. With some quiet athleticism, Stewart was able to score effectively in the paint all weekend. 1 Family guard Tate Darner (Santa Fe Catholic) had some huge shots in some close games, turning heads towards the point guard’s high-level shooting stroke. Caleb Sanders (Bell Creek Academy) of XPC Elite was another name that kept popping up in the gym. He’s a well-developed player who can do a little bit of everything on the floor with a great frame. Alex Springs (Osceola) from TNBA South was a monster all weekend. The athletic, nonstop guard was an efficient inside scorer with the ability to finish against any sized interior defender. He’s a strong, disciplined guard with the ability to score in bunches.
