2024 Isaiah Sutherland (UFCA): It was a balanced attack overall for this team, but I liked what I saw from Sutherland. I believe he could be a great steal for a program, as he is embracing well being a force around the basket, continuing to flourish as an athletic forward, and bringing a nice presence on both sides of the ball.

High IQ creator and scorer.

2026 Cameron Newman (Gaston): Newman flourishes once again on the big stage, as the young point guard knows how to perform in the bright lights.
