Las Vegas Day 2 recap

LAS VEGAS -- There were a number of intriguing matchups on the second day of action and a bevy of outstanding performances. Michigan-bound shooting guard Zak Irvin (Fishers, Ind./Hamilton Southeastern) got the day started off strong with his deep shooting and athletic prowess at the adidas Super 64, while ESPN 100 PF Austin Nichols (Collierville, Tenn./Briarcrest) wowed coaches and scouts with his high-level footwork and scoring savvy at the Fab 48.

Standout players

Zak Irvin

2013, SG/WF, 6-foot-6, 185 pounds

College: Michigan

Irvin has the quintessential frame for the wing position at the next level. He did most of his work off the dribble as he converted a number of pull-up jump shots, getting great lift on his shot. He floats effortlessly while letting his shot go, and it's always soft. Defensively, he did a nice job of keeping ESPN 100 PG Kasey Hill (Eustis, Fla./Montverde) out of the lane.

Isaac Hamilton (Bellflower, Calif./St. John Bosco)

2013, SG, 6-4, 170 pounds

After a lackluster performance on the first day of the adidas Super 64, Hamilton had his offensive arsenal on full throttle against Garner Elite. Runners, pull-ups, slashing drives and deep 3s were part of the onslaught he laid on the team from Raleigh, N.C. Hamilton is a gifted scorer, but his passing and overall IQ for the game are highly underrated. Hamilton has had UConn, UCLA, USC, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and San Diego State, among others, at each of his games.

Roschon Prince (Long Beach, Calif./Poly)

2013, WF, 6-5, 200 pounds

There are a few things you can always count on with Prince: He will play with great energy at both ends (rebounding/defending) and will get to the free throw line. Prince attacks the rim with a vengeance, is a solid passer, defends at a high level and can score through contact. USC, Oregon, San Diego State and Washington are hot on his trail with Gonzaga becoming intrigued.

Jahlil Okafor (Chicago/Whitney Young)

2014, C, 6-10, 270 pounds

Okafor is a massive center prospect with nimble feet, long arms and magnetic hands. Once he catches the ball on the low block, he will score or get fouled. Despite having a huge frame, he is quite elusive in the paint area and can finish with either hand or drop off the ball for a nifty assist.

Austin Nichols

2013, PF, 6-8, 215 pounds

Nichols is one of the most skilled big men in the country. He has great feet, pterodactyl-type length and quite the offensive arsenal at his disposal. He tossed in shots over both shoulders and caught a few high-level lobs in transition as well. He has great timing around the rim and blocked a number of shots due to his length. North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Memphis and Tennessee have been quite visible at his games.

Isaac Copeland (Raleigh, N.C./The Miller School)

2013, WF, 6-9, 190 pounds

Copeland was a scoring machine in the first half against Dream Vision. He dropped in smooth jump shots out to 20 feet and converted floaters in the paint area. He runs effortlessly in transition and is bouncy, but he needs to get significantly stronger to finish through contact at the next level.
