Several good players were at the 2nd Annual event but these were the top overseas prospects on this day based on evaluation from Free Agency Director of Scouting Michael Stinnett and Free Agency Regional Scouts John Tinsley and Brandon Lampley.
MVP - Devin Carter (Arkansas State 2017) 6-4 2/3 3/2 who can play point if needed - Carter has a pro body and is very long. He led his team to the championship and helped develop a good chemistry with his leadership and team play. He also scored the ball very well.

PG Andrew Finley 5-9 Mt. St. Joseph (2018) Finley is a solid PG who can flat run a team. We were impressed with his enthusiasm and passion the entire day. He can get the team in the offense and also really knows how to use the ball screen and make plays. He shot the ball with a lot of consistency from deep and also finished some very difficult shots in traffic. He also is a solid passer. He could really help an overseas team looking for a solid PG who can run a team and can really get after it defensively. Finley averaged 17 a game his senior year and shot 42% from three point land.
