Elite 24 Notebook Day 2: Thon Maker Draws Durant, Garnett Comparisons; Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Indiana Working Hardest
NEW YORK — After missing Day 1 of the Under Armour Elite 24 practices, Thon Maker more than made up for it on Day 2.
The 7-foot 2016 big man from the Carlisle (Va.) School put on a show in the scrimmage, draining 3-pointers, handling the ball in transition and flushing one dunk after another.
In a game that also featured likely future pros Jaylen Brown, Malik Newman and Stephen Zimmerman, among others, Maker stood out in terms of his raw talent.
“He’s KD on offense and KG on defense,” ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla, who watched from courtside along with a throng of other enthralled basketball junkies, told SNY.tv.
