Top players at Hoophall Classic

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- The 2014 Spalding Hoophall Classic, one of the best events of the year, began its Hall of Fame Showcase of games at Springfield College with matchups involving elite players and programs.

Mr. Productive: J.C Washington (Houston/Yates)

Washington doesn't need a ton of shots to be happy. When his hands touch the ball, something good usually happens. He can score on putbacks and short jumpers in the lane. On defense, he takes charges and rebounds with consistency. But perhaps the most impressive part about Washington is the energy and effort he shows on every possession. A local product, he wants to stay home and be a Cougar.
