Wisconsin Guards Shine At Super Soph Camp
The Wisconsin Badgers run to this years NCAA Championship game still has the state buzzing. For those that don’t know, yes they do play a good brand of basketball in Wisconsin producing good college players such as Brian Butch(Wisconsin), J.P. Tokoto(UNC), and current NBA stock riser Sam Decker(Wisconsin). During last weekends Super Sophomore camp a pair of Wisconsin guards stood tall as they both displayed an advanced skill set, flare, and a boatload of confidence. Wisconsin Playground Warrior AAU teammates Tyler Herro(Whitnall HS) and Jordan McCabe(Kaukauna HS) left the camp with quite a bit of buzz.
Saturday morning it was Herro who had it going from the outside in his first game of the day as he ran off consecutive mid range jumpers at the games start. He then grabbed a rebound, walked it up the floor and broke down his defender to score at the rim. For the rest of the game Herro showed that he had a pretty polished all around game. The 6’2 shooting guard is not quick off the dribble, but he finds ways to get by his defenders. His decision making was on point, and surprisingly he rebounded the ball well for his size. It was more his instincts than his athleticism which kept him a few steps ahead of his opponents.
McCabe, a flashy point guard reminiscent of former Florida and NBA guard Jason Williams had the camp buzzing with his crafty ball handling skills and open court vision. McCabe’s game isn’t just flash, he proved with no problem that he could lead a group of unfamiliar players both vocally and by example. Throughout the weekend McCabe used his globetrotter handle to cut up defenders and score in the lane or throw an over the head or behind the back pass that reached a teammate for an easy look. From the perimeter the 5’10 guard looks to be a decent spot up shooter and understands how to create space and use his quick release.
Look for these two class of 2018 guards to grow together as they continue to compete in the same back court. They both are cerebral players coupled with some good fundamentals. McCabe has already begun to attract the attention of college coaches, Herro won’t be far behind.
