6’5 ’22 Mikhail Pocknett (WBC Elite)
It’s difficult to say anything that hasn’t already been mentioned, as Pocknett continues to dominate as a primary option for this squad. He’s a strong, mobile forward who thrives at securing rebounds, pushing the break, and consistently finishing around the basket. Pocknett can knock down the occasional jumper and understands how to set up others at a useful rate.
6’5 ’23 Wyatt Harbaugh (NC Spartans)
Although they are extremely balanced as a group, Harbaugh always seems to stand out with his rugged, blue-collar approach. He shows minimal interest in trying to apply scoring pressure, as he thrives from playing hard, collecting rebounds, and finishing as needed. Harbaugh runs the floor hard, alters shots defensively, and simply outworks opponents for extra opportunities on both ends of the floor.
6’2 ’23 Parker Hodgson (DB Elite)
Given his production, one can certainly appreciate everything Hodgson did to establish himself as a leader for this group. He’s a wiry, well-rounded guard with a great feel for the game on either end of the floor. Hodgson is a smooth shooter from the perimeter, but also actively touches the paint and finishes or sets up others. Hodgson displays useful defensive instincts and does a great job of stepping up whenever necessary.
6’1 ’23 Jake Hart (Strong Center)
While his value might not necessarily be reflected in the box score, Hart is incredibly important to this squad. He shines as a natural glue-guy, consistently affecting all facets of the game and making hustle plays whenever possible. Hart is a smart overall player who can reliably pass, score, defend, and handle the ball. He shows a willingness to do whatever possible to provide his team with an edge.
6’1 ’24 Liam Gates (BSA Supreme)
It’s so easy to be impressed with BSA Supreme, especially when Gates is shooting the ball at such a high level from beyond the arc. He’s a steady, disciplined guard who thrives as a spot-up threat. Gates is a knockdown shooter, but also attacks closeouts and makes unselfish decisions with the ball in his hands. He’s a useful defender and rebounder who knows how to get to his spots in transition.
