6′ 7″ Leon Sayers has the potential to be a force in the GSL. You would think he would be spending most of his time in the paint but instead he is a force on the wing. There was a time when that would be a mistake but not in 2016. Tall players that shoot from the perimeter and can handle the ball are what college coaches want. In the GSL he is a matchup problem for most teams. When he wants to he can put the ball on the floor and get to the rim as well as knock down the open shot.
North Central couldn’t get anything going against Mt Spokane for 3 quarters and fell behind by 18. In the 4th quarter Sayers caught fire hitting 3 threes and 3 free throws in about a two minute span. And with a little help from his friends cut the lead to 6. NC ran out of time ultimately losing by 5. Sayers finished with a game high 22 points showing what he is capable of.
Sayers has a soft touch from behind the arc and doesn’t look like a sophomore with a handful of varsity games shooting the ball. He has a nice go to spin move in the paint that’s hard to stop. Multiple times he went hard to the basket finishing with a soft touch. Also came away with more than one rebound where he was above everyone on the floor. If he wants it bad enough he could do some amazing things in the years to come.
Leon has all the necessary tools in his tool box to be all league if he puts in the time and effort to hone his God given talent.
