Highlights of 2018 4* wing John Newman from EYBL Session 4 in LA after the jump.
John played really well against CIA Bounce, finishing with 13 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. Newman really thrived in the post, where he was able to consistently knock down turnaround jumpshots from the elbows. While he is certainly formidable on the block, John also has nice ballhandling skills. He broke his defender down with change of direction dribbles in isolation and converted at the rim through contact on multiple occasions. He also displayed nice vision out of the post, hitting teammates with nice passes once the double came on the block. Newman is one of the more versatile players we viewed this Spring, as he can punish smaller defenders in the post while having the ball skills and athletic ability to blow by bigger defenders and finish at the rim. See below for highlights.
