Orlando, Florida – The On3 national basketball team is back at the NBPA Top 100 camp this morning for another day full of basketball. Stay tuned to the live blog with game notes from throughout the day.

Game 1, 10:00 AM

4-star PG George Washington, III starts game one with two threes, one off the catch and one off the dribble, both from the left-wing. When he shoots it, it looks like it’s going in. – Senior National Recruiting Analyst Gerry Hamilton

4-star C JP Estrella is incredibly fluid in his movements at 6-11, moves like a small forward. Has scored it on all three levels and is a threat on the floor. Jon Scheyer (Duke) is among the coaches watching. – National Recruiting Expert Joe Tipton

3-star F Ashton Hardaway has as smooth a stroke from three as anyone in the camp. Has the look of a future 40-percent 3-point shooter in college. Mike Boynton (Oklahoma State) has been at all his games, UConn as well. – Gerry Hamilton

NR PG Caden Boozer does ll the things you want a point guard to do, take care of the ball, defend the point of attack, and plays with poise. Only 14 years old, impressive demeanor. – National Recruiting Analyst Jamie Shaw

4-star C Blake Buchanan makes the correct play on both ends of the court. Intelligent team defender, broad shoulders with enough length to compete on the glass. Easy to see why Virginia has offered. – Gerry Hamilton

4-star F Devin Royal knows his game and plays within himself. His efficiency and ability to make plays within the flow of the offense is at a high level. – Jamie Shaw

4-star CG Jared McCain is getting to his spots and seeing the floor. The Duke commit is shooting that ball at a high percentage and exhibits a high IQ. Future head coach Jon Scheyer is courtside. – Joe Tipton

4-star CG Simeon Wilcher is having another good morning showing. Making plays on both ends of the floor and understands how to use his length on defense. – Gerry Hamilton

NR C Flory Bidunga has a high level motor. Is a menace around the rim, rebounds, blocks shots, and finishes around the rim. His eyes are always on the ball and guy who never stops playing hard. – Joe Tipton

Game 2, 11:30 AM

4-star C Somto Cyril is an impressive physical specimen. A force on the offensive glass, tries to dunk everything around the basket, and is a presence in the paint/at the rim. – Jamie Shaw

4-star SG Blue Cain quietly goes about his business, making plays. He just finished a nice reverse lay-up at the rim, and knocked down a catch-and-shoot three from the left wing. Great pace. – Jamie Shaw

5-star PF Omaha Biliew is a junkyard dog. He’s so scrappy on the defensive end, challenging the ball handler, and forces turnovers. – Joe Tipton

4-star PG Elmarko Jackson has proven to be as fast and explosive with the ball as other big guards here, Chris Johnson and AJ Johnson. – Gerry Hamilton

4-star PG Silas Demary is playing with a great pace, showing comfort on the ball at the point of attack. He has always been top of the line defender, but his development on the ball has been impressive. – Jamie Shaw

5-star PF GG Jackson has made a few consecutive crowd-pleasing plays. Dunks in traffic, touch passes on the break, and attacking the rim from the wing. UNC is four deep and Jackson has been the best player on the floor, again. – Jamie Shaw

3-star PF Arrinten Page has been incredibly efficient. Has made strong post moves and connected on the majority of his shots. Playing hard defensively as well. – Joe Tipton

Game 3, 3:00 PM

OTE guard Bryson Warren has consistently knocked down shots. The lengthy guard has stepped into his shots off the bounce or the catch with confidence and knocked them down. – Jamie Shaw

4-star SG Blue Cain another steady camp against top flight competition. Has feel for creating space to get clean looks on the perimeter. Has flashed ability to finish in the path against taller and longer defenders. Welcomes physical play, and will deliver a bump when needed. – Gerry Hamilton

5-star PF Omaha Biliew has taken this matchup with G.G. Jackson personal. Extremly focused on the defensive end, guarding the perimeter and pushing ht break off the bounce. Showing a skilled and decisive handle in the half court. – Jamie Shaw

4-star SF Stephon Castle makes the correct read, and does so without pitting defenders on skates. Finished in traffic, converted in the paint, through contact, and knocked down enough perimeter shots to force defenders to fight over ball screens. – Gerry Hamilton

3-star SG Jaydon Young is holding his own in this setting. Solid secondary ball handler and knocking down shots with confidence and range. – Jamie Shaw

Game 4, 4:30 PM

4-star C Brandon Garrison has had a steady camp to this point. Great frame, with length and broad shoulders, he does the things you want from a big, seals hard, rebounds his area, finishes at the rim. A lot of positive takeaways for Garrison. – Jamie Shaw

4-star PG Trey Parker gets to his spots as well as anyone in this camp. The EYBL’s leading scorer is also showing he can run a team and make reads in the half-court. – Jamie Shaw

4-star C Somto Cyril dunks everything. An absolute man-child and his motor stays running high. Talks on D, communicates with his teammates, and keps them engaged. Blocks and alters shots defensively. His offensive arsenal is still a work in progress. – Joe Tipton

I love how 2025 Caden Boozer defends the ball. – Gerry Hamilton

4-star SG Cam Scott has been a nice secondary initiator in this one. Knocked down a couple elbow jumpers, and the athleticism in the passing lanes has been impressive. South Carolina head coach Lamont Paris has been courtside at all of Scott’s games here. – Jamie Shaw

4-star PG Layden Blocker is quick as a flash. While he didn’t look to score, he was able to get his teammates involved, and got after it on the defensive end. Gets up into his opponent and plays with 100-percent effort, even in the final game of the day – Joe Tipton

5-star C Baye Fall has been consistently good all weekend. The motor runs hot and he crashes the boards. – Gerry Hamilton

3-star F Mouhamed Dioubate’s motor has played a consistent factor in his production. Always seems to find his way around the ball to make a positive play. – Jamie Shaw

4-star PG Elmarko Jackson is a blur, and has some sneaky bounce. A stock-riser in 2023, he makes the right read and has a high IQ. Jackson knows how to score the basketball efficiently. – Joe Tipton
