videoCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – When USA Basketball calls, high school players listen. The USA Basketball Fall Developmental National Team Mini-Camp was a must-attend event. A two day, four-sessions event with 46 players in attendance allowed observers to catch a glimpse of not only what Team USA’s U16 roster will look like next summer, but also a chance to evaluate players in a setting conducive to assessing talent.

A multitude of players showcased their talents for the coaches. There were scorers like 2015 SG Charles Matthews (Chicago, Ill./St. Rita) and 2015 SG Eric Davis (Saginaw, Mich./Arthur Hill). There were also big bodies in 2015 PF Stephen Zimmerman (Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman) and 2015 C Jessie Govan (Queens Village, N.Y./St. Mary’s). 2015 SG Isaiah Briscoe (Union, N.J./St. Benedict’s) and 2015 F Malachi Richardson (Hamilton, N.J./Roselle Catholic) are versatile players. Sophomore bigs Daniel Giddens (Mableton, Ga./Wheeler) and PF Thomas Bryant (Rochester, N.Y./Bishop Kearney) each had their moments and distinguished themselves.

After 48 hours at altitude, here are the takeaways.
