Phenom Hoops continues its trip around the country, taking in games across the country as we went up to Wisconsin lately to check out an intense battle between Hamilton and Wauwatosa West, with Wauwatosa West winning 71-63. While watching the game, we had a great opportunity to watch 2025 6’11 Kai Rogers, a dominant big that holds a host of offers, as well as 2025 6’1 Jake Hansen, a true shot-maker that has a great feel for the game and can change the game in filling it up.

We break down a bit of what we saw from that game and learn more about them. In that game, Hansen finished with 24 points while Rogers finished with a triple-double.

Rogers was incredible on both sides of the court, as he was a dominant force offensively and was terrific defensively in controlling the paint when we watched him. He ultimately finished the night with a triple-double with 13 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 blocks. Rogers has a terrific balance of size, height, and mobility at his position. Rogers showcased his impact defensively, altering shots well with good timing and being a force on the boards. He moves his feet well to provide tremendous help-side defense. Offensively, he has the touch and post presence down in the paint, is comfortable in stretching the court, and what impressed me was his ability to rebound and immediately push in transition. He moves well and is quick for his size, which is why so many schools are looking his way.

Hansen was another player who quickly grabbed my attention, as the 6’1 guard was an extremely confident and consistent shot-maker from all levels of the court. He has a high IQ for the game and can hurt you off the dribble or in catch-and-shoot situations. Hansen was quite impressive on his way to 24 points, knocking down shots with range consistently, displaying a quick release, and being deadly from behind the arc. But also is strong in knocking down shots off the dribble, getting to his spots, and hitting mid-range shots. When talking more about his game, he described it like this: “I would say I’m a volume scorer who can get hot quick, an underrated defender and a capable playmaker.” Hansen holds four offers right now, but also mentioned schools like Buffalo and Princeton have been the two schools expressing strong interest, as they could be next to join the party when it comes to offers. Hansen though certainly proved why he is a deadly option as a true shot-maker.
