The first was Eugene Harvey, a 6’0 point guard who has yet to decide what school he will attend. He has narrowed his choices down to Rutgers, Maryland, Illinois, Cincinnati, USC, and Florida. Harvey was the most highly touted prospect in the game, and for the most part he played to those expectations. He played the game carelessly, making some nonchalant underhand passes, but showed that he has great talent and a well-developed skillset for the point guard position. He was at his best in the open court, either scoring himself or making the dish to the open man. On one play in transition he got into the lane and dumped the ball behind him for a trailing teammate without even looking. In the halfcourt, Harvey had some problems forcing the issue with the passing, and also committed a few turnovers by taking it to the basket. He gets to the basket extremely well with his quick first step, though, and can finish with either hand, switching hands in mid air on a few occasions in the game. He has a quick first step, knows how to use the glass, and can maintain balance after drawing contact. If he can put all his tools together, develop an outside shot (which he didn’t show), and calm himself down with the ball, he could be a good point guard for any of the schools he is considering.

Harvey did a great job running the show for the East team, not backing down to the more heralded Mike Conley Jr. in the slightest bit. He showed great court vision throughout the game, but is still a bit on the small side and is not a good outside shooter. He is currently holding offers from Rutgers, USC, Maryland, and Illinois, but has said that he will attend Rutgers if high school teammate Lance Thomas goes there as well. Rutgers would be a great move for the duo, considering that they would receive a great deal of playing time while getting plenty of exposure in front of scouts in the Big East.
