Nykolas Lewis || Gonzaga (DC) || C/O 2025 || SG 6'4

He was very efficient from the field, going 7-12, primarily getting into the lane and finishing around the rim. He was hyperactive on the defensive end, containing the ball handler, getting on-ball steals, and playing the passing lane.

Airious "Ace" Bailey || McEachern (GA) || C/O 2024 || 6’9 F

He liked to get to the mid-post in a triple threat to set up a face-up or turn-around mid-range jumper primarily from the elbow or short corner area. He rebounded the ball well on the defensive end, pushing it in transition and not allowing the defense to get set up. He was also active on the defensive end, containing his man as well as protecting the rim as a help-side defender.

Christian Anderson || Lovett School (GA) || C/O 2024 || 5’11 PG

He shot the ball well from the 3pt knocking down several deep pull-ups. He did a good job passing the ball with either hand and threw a nice full-court pass on target off the dribble for an easy layup. He was able to create for himself for 3's, mid-range jumpers, and floaters in the lane.

Jaeden Mustaf || Carmel Christian (FL) || C/O 2024 || 6'6 F

He also did a good job finishing through contact in the lane.

AJ Johnson || Southern California (CA) || C/O 2023 || 6'6 SG

He showed off his athletic ability, finishing above the rim in transition. He knocked down a few C&S 3's, hitting two big ones down the stretch to seal the game. He also showed off the ability to create for himself off the dribble to set up his jumper and get downhill into the lane.

Aden Holloway || Prolific Prep (CA) || C/O 2023 || 6'0 PG

He was quick and crafty with the ball in his hands, getting into the lane finishing with runners and floaters. Operated in PnR action making the correct reads to the roll-man, the shooter lifting from the corner. Shot the ball well off the dribble and, in C&S opportunities.
