Dayton Live-Stream

After the success of our first live-stream open run in Cincinnati back on July 3rd, we at Triple Double Prospects decided to take the show on up I-71 North, all the way to Dayton to Flyght Academy in Trotwood. For this session we teamed up with Miami Valley Hoop Vault to host the top talent in the Dayton area for a live-stream open run, with the help of Chatterbox Sports in the broadcast both. With college coaches checking out the action on YouTube, several of Dayton’s finest stood out…


Malcolm Curry – ’21 PG Huber Heights Wayne: Every college who recruits Ohio about the talent pipeline that is Wayne High School. On Wednesday night, Curry took the next step towards being the next college signee out of Wayne, as the hyper-athletic point guard attacked the basket, found teammates for assists and made some perimeter jumpers; finishing the evening as one of the event’s top scorers. Curry is an explosively bouncy point guard, but also has flair to his game, as he can pass and finish around the basket, especially in the transition game. A confident scorer with a competitive mindset, Curry will be one of Dayton’s most talked about point guards next year as a high school senior.

Anthony McComb – ’21 SG Dayton Thurgood Marshall: We’ve written on this site that we cannot for the life of us understand why McComb doesn’t hold any NCAA D1 scholarship offers; nothing changed regarding our opinion Wednesday night, as McComb created whatever shots he wanted off of the dribble to lead his team in scoring. A versatile guard with mobility and strength who can really break defenders down, McComb is a mid-range scorer who can also defend multiple positions effectively. A competitor with a terrific motor, McComb is the type of utility guard that college coaches love at the next level, and, we think he made enough perimeter shots tonight to justify more NCAA D1 recruiting attention.

Carter Mims – ’21 PG Trotwood-Madison: If ever there was a “stock riser” from an event such as this one, that player would be Mims. The unofficial leading scorer at the open run, and without question the most electrifying player from a highlight standpoint, Mims proved that heart matters more than height. He might only stand about 5’7, but Mims is a tough-minded point guard who can get to the rim with blazing speed and will shots into the basket. When he’s making jump-shots, as he was tonight, Mims is tough to guard, as opponents are forced to crowd him and he’s just too quick to guard when crowded. A perfect Trotwood-Madison guard with his style of play and mental demeanor, Mims will lead the Rams into the 2020-2021 season.

Alex Williams – ’21 SF/PF Cincinnati Moeller: One of the more heavily recruited 2021 prospects in attendance heading into the event, Williams recovered from a shooting slump at the Cincinnati open run, knocking down several long-range shots in Dayton on Wednesday night. A Dayton native who attends Cincinnati Moeller, Williams ability to attack bigger players with his perimeter skill-set and quick feet, matched with his versatility to bully and shoot over smaller defenders, all makes him one of the most difficult prospects to guard in all of Southwest Ohio. College coaches love Williams motor, strength and versatility; and, if he can continue to consistently shoot the ball well from three, he’ll only see more and more schools join his scholarship offer list.

Jacob Conner – ’22 SF Kettering Alter: Our top performer of the day, and arguably the prospect in the event with the most long-term upside, Conner was tremendous on Wednesday evening, showcase game-changing versatility as a 6’7 wing who can shoot it, pass it and drive it. A rangy and bouncy athlete for his size, Conner is a long and mobile wing who can play the point-forward role offensively, but also showed that he’s a deadly shooter from the outside as well; which, if he keeps that up, will make him one of the toughest matchups in Ohio. Add in the fact that Conner has a good feel for the offensive game and competes on the defensive end with a motor, and you have a prospect who is quickly climbing the ranks as one of Ohio’s most sought after 2022’s by NCAA D1 coaches. Already with multiple NCAA D1 offers, Conner received an offer from Youngstown State just a few days before today’s event.

Tom House – ’22 SF Centerville: A catch and shoot specialist with a fiery chip to his game, House was one of the most intense competitors at Wednesday’s run. While he started off slow with his three-point shooting, the confident 6’4 wing kept on firing, eventually leading to some serious hot-streaks, including a personal 8-0 run late in his second game where he hit two three-pointers with a transition dunk sandwiched in between. Having started last season on Centerville’s JV and then earning a larger varsity role as the season unfolded, House continued to show the size, athleticism, confidence, competiveness and shooting ability that makes him a legitimate college prospect and a key piece of Centerville’s loaded 2022 class.

Keon Wright – ’22 PG Kettering Fairmont: An athletic playmaker who really knows how to play, Wright brought a quiet style to the floor, but that style was extremely effective, making him one of our top performers. Both explosive and strong, Wright can be a blur with the ball in his hands, but also showcased the skill-set needed to be successful at the next level, as the 6’0 point guard was successful both as a passer and shooter in the half-court game. Part of a Kettering Fairmont 2022 class that also includes Dasan Doucet and Anthony Johnson, we expect to see college coaches make the trip to Trent Arena this coming winter for a closer look.

Honorable Mention: Jacob Reed (’21 Dayton Stebbins), Justin O’Neal (’21 Dayton Meadowdale), Allen Lattimore (’21 West Carrolton), Ben Knostman (’21 Tippecanoe), AJ Braun (’21 Middletown Bishop Fenwick), Tyler Montague (’21 Vandalia Butler), Maro Egodotaye (’21 Dayton Carroll), Rich Rolf (’22 Centerville), Adam Duvall (’22 Beavercreek), Lawrent Rice (’23 Huber Heights Wayne)
