The Prime Time Shootout was held at East Orange High School in East Orange, New Jersey this year. It had its fair share of talent to say the least. Here are our Big Shots top performers from Day 2.

Note: We were only in attendance for the 11:30 a.m.-4:45 p.m. games for Day 2

Class of 2019 Seton Hall Prep (NJ) CG Ashton Miller

Miller is a long rangy guard who handles the bell well enough to play the lead guard spot when needed. In his matchup against Hackettstown (NJ), he utilized his size and length well. Miller showed that can he penetrate the seams of the defense effectively. He shot the ball from beyond the arc at a consistent clip at the Prime Time Shootout. Miller’s length showed up with his tough on-ball defense as well.

Class of 2020 Seton Hall Prep (NJ) W Jabri Abdur-Rahim

This is a young player who already is extremely versatile. Abdur-Rahim is essentially a tall long guard with a good looking stroke from all over the floor. We enjoyed his activity on the offensive glass. He already has arsenal of moves from the perimeter. He handles the ball well and has the potential to be considered as a true shooting guard as time goes on. We believe his potential and upside is endless. 

Class of 2018 Nottingham (NJ) G Cliff Joseph

Joseph did a great job of setting his teammates up in their matchup against East Orange (NJ). He has very active hands in the passing lanes that lead to steals and easy points in transition. Joseph likes to get out and run where he finishes well at the rim. He even finished one drive with a big time dunk showing off his athleticism. Joseph has the ability to stretch the floor from the three-point line as well. 


Class of 2019 Gill St. Bernard (NJ) CG Paul Mulcahy

Mulcahy displayed that he is great three-point shooter in this one. He knows how to get his feet set to get shots off quickly, even when stepping into them in transition. He always seems to be under control and make the right play. He has the ball in his hands at a high rate and makes minimal turnovers. Mulcahy arguably was the highest IQ player at the Prime Time Shootout for either Day 1 or Day 2. He was able to show off his exceptional passing ability in their matchup against Newark East Side (NJ). One of the things we enjoyed most was how well he utilized his body. He did a great job of creating contact to not let defenders rise up and affect his shot. One intangible that Mulcahy carries is he is a verbal leader who can explain the game at a high level. 

Class of 2018 Immaculate Conception (NJ) PG Jalen Carey

Carey is as poised of a point guard as they come at the high school level. He always seems to be under control and make the right play. He is a guy with a high usage rate, but with minimal turnovers. Carey is a great athlete at the point guard that is able to finish above the rim. He can score from all three levels effectively. He is another guy who penetrates with a purpose for himself or to set up a teammate. He is a guy who will make a difference at Syracuse next year right away in our opinion.

Class of 2019 Immaculate Conception (NJ) F Justin Winston

Winston is another combo forward who has the capability of playing the small forward or power forward with his frame. Winston does a good job offensively mixing it up from the inside and out. He has a consistent enough three-point shot that you have to honor it and can’t leave him open. Winston has a great motor on the glass. He makes great cuts off the ball to get himself easy shots around the rim. Winston is also a great on-ball defender who can guard multiple positions.

Class of 2019 St. Patrick’s (NJ) CG Al-Amir Dawes

Dawes does a great job playing the lead guard spot as well as off the ball. He displayed his lethal three-point shooting ability knocking down multiple in their matchup against Camden (NJ). Dawes does a great job pushing the tempo to get out in transition for easy buckets either for himself or his teammates. He is a quick guard who uses that ability as a good on-ball defender. Dawes has no problem applying ball pressure the second the opposing point guard takes a step across half-court.
