2020 6’9 Josh Hall (Moravian Prep): It can be a gift for fans to watch with what Hall is able to do on the floor. He glides around the floor with ease, working incredibly well in finding his space to spot up and knock down shots inside and out. Hall’s ability to play off the ball but also break down defenders and use his length is absolutely tough to stop. He was incredibly efficient and made it look effortless, scoring 51 points on Day 3 on 16-for-23 shooting.
2021 6’4 AJ Smith (Hickory Grove): Continue to say that Smith is one of the most physical prospects in his class and he showed it today on his way to 34 points in the win. Smith’s ability to create and put the ball on the floor, attacking the rim and taking hit after hit is what he does best. But he also showed confident stroke from outside, something he continues to work on every day. It was an impressive showing today.
2022 6’1 Waymond Jernette (South Pointe): A sophomore to keep tabs on, you have to like his cat-like quickness and energy, never giving up on plays and creating wining, extra opportunities for his team. On multiple occasions, he read the passing lanes and used his defense to score in transition.
2020 6’0 Creighton Lebo (Greenfield): Lebo’s feel for the game continues to impress every time he steps on the floor. His decision-making, jump shot, and vision on the floor shined in the victory, on his way to 23 points. Lebo’s smooth stroke from mid-range and outside was strong today but that is nothing unusual.
2022 6’3 Kheni Briggs (AL Brown): Briggs continues to play his bully ball with his frame and strength but he also doesn’t try to force anything the court as well. He gets his teammates involved and attacks when he needs to, finishing with power and strength through contact. What was also impressive was his instincts today on defense, creating five steals as well.
