Film Study: Nov. 28, 2022

The second week of the regular season was in full force on Monday night with a plethora of games across the state of Florida.

I took in two games via live stream on the evening, one in North Florida and another down in South Florida.


  • Orange Park 57, Raines 55
  • South Plantation 57, Stranahan 47

Here is a look at the top performers on Monday.

2024 6-1 G Archieve Triggs III – Orange Park

Orange Park won its season opener over a speedy Raines group. It was 2024 6-foot-1 guard Archieve Triggs that who found his groove with 13 points and a huge block with just around 50 seconds left in the game. He connected on some corner 3’s, ran the floor well and finished inside when needed.

—2024 5-foot-11 guard Bryan Falcon (16 points) caught fire in the second half with four important 3’s. He was electric when the Raiders needed a bucket the most. 2023 6-foot-5 forward Avorie Grayson (10 points) crashed the boards and created havoc down low. 2023 6-foot guard Deandre Dickerson (7 points) had some bright moments as a distributor and attacker.

2023 6-1 G Navonte Ivey – Raines

Raines led for much of the night, trailed in the fourth quarter by nine points late but never stopped fighting cutting the deficit to two points and nearly tying the game in the final seconds. 2023 6-foot-1 guard Navonte Ivey shined all game long with his jumper and cutting ability to finish at the cup, tacking on team-high 16 points. He is a very explosive player who can flat out fly up and down the court.

—2023 5-foot-11 guard Trevon Nevarez (9 points) did a very good job at handling the ball and working the tempo. He hit a deep two-pointer to beat the halftime buzzer as Raines led 31-28 at the break. 2024 5-foot-10 guard Ja’Zon Taylor (9 points) hit three 3’s in this one and flashed his shooting touch late.

2024 6-3 G Harry Gelin – South Plantation

It was a really impressive outing from Harry Gelin. The 2024 6-foot-3 guard is a fluid ballhandler, strong at the point of attack and a good decision maker. He dropped 18 points as he connected from long range and got to the rack often. Gelin is a smooth athlete in the junior class.

—It is hard to contain size and for 2023 6-foot-8 Omarri Wallace, he was a true mismatch in this one. He added 14 points and 11 rebounds, while he made the most of his inside presence. 2024 6-foot-1 guard Kaiden Francis (11 points) is a consistent threat on both ends of the floor with his wheels and handles.

2025 6-2 G Justin Snell – Stranahan

Stranahan fought back throughout the second half in its season opening loss to South Plantation. It was 2025 6-foot-2 combo guard Justin Snell that displayed a ton of grit, craftiness and scoring prowess with 12 points. I like his upside and all-around game.

—2023 6-foot-4 guard Joshua Verdine (12 points) is a bigger framed player with very good handles and speed. He rebounded hard and is active on both ends of the floor. 2024 6-foot-4 forward Mekhi Murray flashed his ability with a corner 3 late in the game and a ferocious one-handed slam over a defender in the third quarter.
