Day three of the adidas Invitational is in the books and there have been a couple of big upsets. Dream Vision lost to Kansas Play and Pray while Connecticut Basketball Club fell to MBA Select early in the day. Indiana Elite will face off against New Heights while Kansas Pray and Play will take on Florida Rams Black tomorrow in the semifinals. Here were some of the notable performances from day 3.
Gabe York (Compton Magic) - York was a man on a mission today and played as well as we have ever seen him play. Indiana Elite defenders couldn't stay in front of him as he got into the lane at will with an impressive crossover, but it was from three point land that he made his biggest impact. He was knocking down threes left and right and couldn't find a shot that he didn't like. Even though his team couldn't quite pull off an upset, his 44 points will leave a lasting impression on those in attendance.
Hanner Perea (Indiana Elite) - Perea has been making the adidas Invitational into his own personal highlight reel. No matter what kind of jaw-dropping dunk he has, he's kept fans on the edges of their seats all tournament and all of the Indiana fans in attendance make for an even more exciting atmosphere when he pulls off one of his highlight plays.
Andrew Harrison (Houston Defenders) - Andrew Harrison is a very impressive prospect. He already has phenomenal size for a point guard and it's difficult to find any real weaknesses in his game. When the 2013 rankings are updated he will certainly be in consideration for the number one spot.
Jeremy Hollowell (Indiana Elite) - Hollowell didn't get to the rim much, but he made a big impact for his team nonetheless. His three point shooting was impressive and he knocked down numerous shots while shooting a high percentage.
Marcus Marshall (43 Hoops) - Marcus Marshall is a skilled combo guard who can create his own shot and has deep range on his jumper. He is mostly being pursued by mid-majors, but high-majors in need of a scoring guard may want to take a look.
Perry Ellis (Kansas Pray and Play) - Ellis has been a beast for the Players. Whether it's dunking over the top of defenders or knocking down a three pointer, Ellis was having his way with opposing teams and putting up big numbers. Coach Calipari and Coach Self were among the coaches in attendance for his game against 43 Hoops.
