The final day of the NY2LA Sports Invitational wrapped up play on Sunday at Homestead High School in Mequon, Wisc. and several players stood out as they helped lead their team to championship games in various brackets. Ben Canady and Dylan Ingebrigtsen proved to be a tough inside-outside combination and helped lead All In Athletics to the 17U Gold division title

TOP PERFORMERS
Quincy Anderson — 2018 — SG — Playground Elite

One day after Anderson impressed with a slew of 3-pointers, he impressed on Sunday with his all-around game, showcasing the ability to be creative off the dribble, get all the way to the bucket and finish in traffic and even got on the boards a little. His play helped lead Playground Elite all the way to the title game. 

Ben Canady — 2018 — PG — All In Athletics
A solid ball handler who handles pressure well and helps get All In Athletics into its offense, Canady had a game-high 21 points against MBA Select in Sunday’s Gold bracket championship game. He shoots a set shot from 3, but has a quick release and is knocked down four 3s against MBA Select in Sunday’s Gold bracket championship game.

Sam Ferris — 2018 — G — Wisconsin Blizzard
Kid just outworks his opponents. He backdoor cut Wisconsin Playground early in a 17U semifinal contest, and also showed off a nice floater in the lane, a smooth outside shooting stroke and the ability to take his man off the bounce and finish in traffic. The Blizzard play terrific team basketball and Ferris helped lead them deep into the 17U Platinum bracket. He had a game-high 18 points as they were eliminated in the semifinals by a talented Playground Elite team on Sunday.

Rylen Grundy — 2018 — F — MBA Select
Grundy is an athletic forward with terrific mobility and a good all-around skill set. Listed at 6’4, Grundy plays much bigger. He does a terrific job of rebounding outside of his area, defending the paint and runs the floor extremely well. Had several eye-opening slam dunks, finishing plays in traffic with authority.

Cole Kleiver — SG — 2018 — Michigan Titans
Kleiver led the Michigan Titans with four 3-pointers and 19 points in a hard-fought loss to Playground Elite in the 17U Platinum bracket quarterfinals Sunday morning. A 6’0 guard, Kleiver takes and makes tough pull-up jumpers, something of a lost art in today’s game. He has a strong build and is good at creating jumpers off the bounce. 

Zachary Lattimer — 2018 — SG — MBA Select
Came off the bench to have a big game in the Gold bracket on Sunday against Illinois Wolverines. 
Kid can really shoot it and was easily among the top outside shooters we saw over the weekend. Has good size and a quick trigger and shoots it from well beyond the arc.

Quincy Miner — 2018 — SG — Milwaukee RS Elite
Miner is an athletic and versatile 6’1 guard that is tough to contain off the bounce, especially in the open court. Is an explosive athlete that attacks the rim and finishes in a crowd. Also showed the ability to get in the post a little bit against the Minnesota Knights in Sunday’s Silver bracket championship game. He was leading both teams with 11 points before exiting the game due to injury with five minutes remaining.

Abe Scruggs IV — 2020 — SG — Wisconsin Shooters
Continues to impress this spring with his shooting ability and all-around play. Had 22 points in a semifinal win over Gallo on Sunday, including five 3-pointers. Scruggs has a smooth game, plays under control and has the ability to turn it up a notch and take over a game at any time. He can handle the ball, shoot with range and plays the game with confidence.

Luke Toliver — 2018 — SG — MBA Select
The Paw Paw, Michigan native helped lead MBA Select all the way to the Gold bracket championship game. At 6’3, Toliver is a terrific perimeter shooter who can light up the scoreboard from the perimeter. He has terrific size and athleticism for a shooting guard, can handle the ball a little and defends his position well. 

STOCK BOOSTERS 
Isiah Dodel — 2020 — PG — Gallo Sports

A dynamic point guard with a strong, stocky frame who plays bigger than his 5’7 height. He has elite end-to-end speed and the ability to get to the bucket and finish acrobatic chances in traffic. But what makes him special is his court vision and playmaking ability. He is an elite level passer who has the rare ability to dominate a game with his passing skills.

Ben Fuhrmann — 2018 — SG — Wisconsin Swing Janusek
A 5’11 guard, Furhmann helped lead the Swing to the Bronze championship with a win over All In Athletics on Sunday. He finished with 11 points to lead both teams in scoring.

Marquez Gordon — 2018 — F — Michigan Titans
High energy player along the baseline, Gordon came off the bench to lead the Titans with six rebounds and add 12 points in a hard-fought loss to Playground Elite in the 17U Platinum bracket quarterfinals Sunday morning. An athletic 6’7 forward, Gordon did a good job of freeing himself up for easy buckets in the paint and getting on the defensive glass.

Dylan Ingebrigtsen — 2018 — PF — All In Athletics
At 6’5, Ingebrigtsen is an inside-outside big man with a nose for the ball on the boards and the ability to step out and hit perimeter shots. A left hander, Ingebrigtsen knocked down a pair of 3-pointers and scored 14 of his 16 points in the first half as All In Athletics knocked off MBA Select in Sunday’s Gold bracket championship game.  

Andre Jenkins — 2019 — PG — Minnesota Knights
Playing up an age level, Jenkins helped lead the Minnesota Knights to the 17U Silver championship game where they fell to Milwaukee RS Elite. Jenkins is a 5’11 point guard with a soft outside shooting touch who has the ability to create off the bounce and get to the bucket. He led the Knights against Milwaukee RS with 18 points, including three 3-pointers.

Troy Jordan — 2018 — SG — Michigan Titans
Jordan came off the bench to have a huge game for the Titans in a Sunday morning loss to Playground in the quarterfinals of the 17U Platinum bracket. A 5’11 shooting guard, Jordan brings speed, quickness and unlimited energy to the court. He got buckets in transition, got to the rim off the bounce and stuck a pair of 3-pointers in the second half and finished with 17 points.

Dylan Korey — 2018 — PF/C — Wisconsin Blizzard
Big man with an athletic frame and build and a well-rounded big man game. Korey helped lead the Blizzard all the way to the semifinals of the 17U Platinum bracket where they fell in a hard fought game to Playground Elite. Korey has a good feel for post play, a soft shooting touch and does an excellent job of protecting the ball when help comes and finding the open man.
