Josh Benson Update: AAU State Tournament
Josh's activity is something which has been unmatched this weekend in Cincinnati. When fresh, especially early in games, Josh seems to control the flow of the game and make his presence know. Josh plays nearly every minute and carries the load for Dayton Metro which takes a toll on him but he has still found ways to dig in and make plays when the game is on the line.
The most impressive aspect of his game has been his timing on the offensive glass. His timing is exhibited in the fact he has caught 6-8 offensive rebounds off the rim and finished them forcefully.
