Help Is On The Way: Isaac Copeland and L.J. Peak Continue to Impress


Georgetown Class of '14 commits Isaac Copeland and L.J. Peak had stellar weekends showcasing their talent.

Copeland won the dunk contest and was named the MVP of the Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic. 

Per Slam:

Isaac Copeland, 6-9 power forward, Brewster Academy (NH)

Copeland capped off his week of stellar play by taking home with dunk contest crown with a slap-the-glass reverse 360, a la Jonathan Bender back in '01. Now any time you can make a Jonathan Bender reference, you know you've done something good because after all, how many 7-foot shooting guards have there actually been in the League, but you hope that his injuries don't follow Copeland. This face-up power forward was named team MVP with the inside-outside game that has drawn comparisons to another Georgetown recruit: Jeff Green. He hit open Js, changed the game with his athleticism, and threw down a number of sick dunks in transition. He finished with 13 points and showed the crazy long-term potential that he offers.

Copeland is #35 on the green team in the below.

Meanwhile, L.J. Peak did this in the Jordan Brand Classic.
