French guard Killian Hayes
led all scores with 13 points to go along with 2 blocks and a steal. Measured at 6'4.75 in shoes with a 6'7.25 wingspan, Hayes is a 15-year-old combo guard with terrific size, a strong frame, and nice all-around athleticism. Adept at attacking the rim with quickness and making an impact with his competitiveness defending multiple positions, Hayes already earned minutes in the French junior league this season for Cholet competing alongside players as many as five years his senior. Still developing as a passer and jump shooter, Hayes, whose father, DeRon, was a tremendous scorer in the A10 in the early 90's for Penn State and spent almost 20 years as a pro in Europe, is a player to keep tabs on in the coming years given his tools, competitiveness, and pedigree. His ability to lock down up to three positions gives him tremendous versatility to build off, as its rare to see a player his age be able to make such a significant impact on the defensive end with his intensity, instints and focus.
