Richmond, Va – Over the years at Big Shots we’ve been fortunate to have many tremendous media outlets on hand at the events. Right there courtside at many of them  has been elite national scout Mike Talbott of Star Hoopers. This weekend in Richmond it came to me that I wanted to start the ‘Talbott’s Ten’ after each event that he’s able to attend. Always appreciate Mike’s coverage and all media at Big Shots.

Talbott’s Ten

These ten players weren’t necessarily the ten best players, or the ten best prospects, that I saw at Big Shots Richmond on Saturday.
However, these ten players stood out to me for various reasons, with varying degrees of: Performance, Potential and their Abilities, as well how well they maximized those Abilities.
