Under Armour Elite 24 Recap

Edrice Adebayo was very efficient all game long and showed off his tremendous athleticism and power. A dunking machine, Adebayo converted around the rim and showed off a nice ability to run the floor. One of the big guys who doesn’t get a ton of attention, but probably should is Dewan Huell. Long, athletic, and possessing a solid touch, Huell finished with 18 points and seven rebounds on 9-11 shooting from the floor. (Scout.com)
