6’4 ’27 King Gibson (The Burlington School)

The noteworthy freshman continues to turn heads while getting steadily more comfortable and assertive. Gibson is a long, athletic wing with great size, feel, and a useful amount of skill. In this contest, he displayed an excellent understanding of when to defer versus when to take control. Gibson knocked down jumpers, attacked off the bounce, and made intelligent decisions with the ball in his hands. He also consistently made his presence felt as a defender and rebounder.

Final stats: 18 points, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block

6’4 ’25 Devin Sims (The Burlington School)

Although it might not show up in the stat sheet, Sims was undeniably important in the Spartans’ winning effort. He’s incredibly strong and explosive, but it’s his toughness and nonstop motor that seems to make him such a problem for opponents. Sims is a tremendous rebounder for his size/position, regularly defends bigger players, and poses a constant finishing threat in transition.

Final stats: 11 points, 7 rebounds, 2 steals

6’7 ’24 Maurio Hanson (Chambers)

Throughout his high school career, Hanson has been nothing less than a model of consistency. He’s a strong big man who thrives on the block but can also hit jumpers, attack off the bounce, and pass very well from the post. Hanson stands out as the go-to offensive option for this group, securing position on the block and reliably operating as the fulcrum of the offense. He also makes his presence felt defensively.

Final stats: 25 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals

6’4 ’24 Austin Swartz (Cannon)

Though he’s the only committed player listed, it would be impossible to ignore everything Swartz showcased in this contest. The future Hurricane continues to display an incredible amount of offensive polish as a focal point for this group. It’s easy to get entranced with Swartz’ effortless creation skills and overall scoring package, but his playmaking instinct remains one of his most impressive qualities.

Final stats: 25 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, 1 block

6’5 ’25 Isaiah Henry (Cannon)

It was easy to be impressed with Henry and his flashes of dominance throughout this contest. He’s so strong and physically overwhelming, but also possesses terrific IQ and skill. Henry looked very comfortable creating off the dribble and knocking down jumpers (both off the catch and bounce) while still offering his usual amount of defense, rebounding, and dirty work. He has all the tools to be a high-major player.

Final stats: 28 points, 10 rebounds, 2 steals

6’7 ’24 Kameron Taylor (Carmel Christian)

Quite easily the top performer in this event, Taylor continues to absolutely destroy everyone in his path. Whether it was scoring, rebounding, or his handful of highlight-reel plays, Taylor shined in every possible facet. He’s a long, skilled athlete with excellent size and versatility on both ends of the floor. It’s difficult to say anything about his ridiculous lack of recruitment without sounding redundant, but the kid is worthy of more offers.

Final stats: 39 points, 8 rebounds, 2 blocks, 1 steal
