The first game included quality performances from three of the more unheralded players on this year's roster. Lebanese guard Wael Arakji
scored only 6 points on 3/3 shooting, but dished out 5 assists and pulled down 5 rebounds. The big point guard from Al Riyadi Beirut made an impact with his quickness and competitiveness, probing the paint and setting the table for others and coming up with a pair of steals defensively. One of the more unheralded players to declare for the 2015 NBA Draft, having played his entire career in his home country, Arakji is a player many scouts are keeping a close eye on here. At 6'4, 195-pounds, he has terrific size for his positions, and though he lacks great shooting ability, his athleticism and motor give him some intrigue. It will be worth monitoring whether the 94-born prospect leaves his name in the draft, as it could provide a clear indication of his confidence in being selected. His play today was a step in the right direction towards that end.
