The Apple's Best Ballaz

Daon Merritt 5'9 PG St. Raymond

Written By Keith Mason

Merritt has adjusted his game from the summer time to the high school season. In the summer he played the way he has played his entire life and that is to score first, but throughout the season he has been a pass first point guard. This style of play has been somewhat affective as he has posted a couple of double doubles, but with Allan Ray out, the team needed him to look to score a little more for them to have been successful with Ray sidelined. Although he stands at just 5'9 he is able to use his strength and athleticism to get to the basket and shoot over taller defenders. He can knock down the 3 but he has to get a more consistent outside jumper to succeed at the next level. He is a pretty good defender but he has trouble with quicker guards that have crafty handles, but so do a lot of players.
