Nike Skills U. update
Briscoe, Robinson stand out
The inaugural NIKE Skills U tipped off on Wednesday. The first evening was led by camp instructor and former Wake Forest head coach, Dino Guadio. The 80 camp participants were put through various skill development drills to enhance their games on the floor.
The first set of games took place Thursday. With college coaches from North Carolina, Arizona, Indiana, Syracuse, Butler and many more on site, several prospects stood out.
The most dominant backcourt in the event so far has been future Indiana Hoosier, Stanford Robinson and 2015’s Isaiah Briscoe. The two proved to be a dynamic duo in their two games on Thursday. While Robinson displayed his will to score in a variety of ways, Briscoe demonstrated a superb basketball IQ, dishing the ball with ease and scoring when necessary, including a step-back fade-away game-winner in overtime.
Several other standouts in the NIKE Skills U include: Josh Hart (Washington, D.C., 2013), Mike Young (Pittsburgh, Pa., 2013), Jamel Artis (Baltimore, Md., 2013), Austin Colbert (Lakeville, Conn., 2013) and Tyus Battle (Edison, N.J., 2016).
The campers will continue to participate in morning workouts Friday, Saturday and Sunday, while competing in games throughout the afternoon.
