Like many kids in today’s game, it took Anthony Bennett (Brampton, Ontario/Findlay Prep) a while to settle into a comfort zone, but once he did, he never looked back.

Last summer, Bennett played in a pair of events -- The Pangos All-American Camp and NBA Top 100 -- that set the tone for his ascension up the charts.

“I started pushing the rock more,” Bennett said. “When I did that everyone was looking at me as a 6-8 forward that could dribble and shoot it too.”
