WESTERN CONFERENCE TEAM REPORTS
ARROYO EDWARDS – 2012 – G – MILWAUKEE KING
Turned in an excellent first half performance and then slowed a bit in the second half but still managed to put together a decent weekend effort. Wrapped week 2 with 13 points on 6 of 12 shooting, 3 steals, 3 rebounds, and 1 assist. Struggled a bit with turnovers. For him to take his game to the next level in the coming weeks, he’ll need to take his activity, playmaking, and decision making up a notch. Solid effort this past weekend.
IMAN JOHNSON – 2012 – F – DOMINICAN
Turned in a solid floor effort this past weekend and his ability to contribute in a number of areas was a big factor in his team pulling out another victory. Finished with 6 points on 3 of 5 shooting, grabbed 3 rebounds, kicked out 4 assists, blocked 3 shots and had 1 steal. Could double those numbers with improved activity and effort on both ends in the coming weeks and look forward to seeing if he can meet that challenge. Brought a lot of intangibles to the table this past weekend.
JAMAAR MCKAY – 2013 – SF – MILWAUKEE WASHINGTON
Rebounded from a poor shooting performance during the opening week to turn in one of the best on week 2 and added some decent floor production as well. Scored 19 points on 9 of 11 shooting, grabbed 4 rebounds, blocked 3 shots, and had 2 assists. Struggled with a few unforced turnovers but overall played a big part in his team running their record to 2-0 on the season. Solid performance.
ALEX NAJIEB – 2013 – G – MILWAUKEE NORTHWEST
Bounced back from a sluggish week 1 effort to do some nice things this past weekend. Scored 9 points on 4 of 7 shooting, collected 3 steals, grabbed 2 rebounds, and kicked out 1 assist. Has a lot more he’s capable of doing and with improved hustle and activity on both ends his production should continue to grow in the coming weeks.
MITCHELL FARR – 2011 – G – RACINE CASE
Bounced back from a poor shooting performance the first week to turn in a solid effort this past weekend including some nice shooting from long range. Hit for 15 points on 6 of 10 shooting including 3 of 5 from long range, added 3 rebounds, blocked 2 shots, collected 2 steals, and kicked out 1 assist. Was efficient and smart with the ball as he did not have any turnovers. A solid performance this past weekend but he can improve on that by being more active and assertive on both ends in the coming weeks.
JARVIS GARRETT – 2013 – PG – WEST ALLIS CENTRAL
Made his BOC debut this past weekend and was extremely impressive at times in the process. A textbook PG at times with excellent decision making ability, Garrett dropped 12 points on 5 of 7 shooting, kicked out 4 assists, collected 3 rebounds, and grabbed 2 steals. He was efficient and smart with the basketball and played a huge role in terms of both production and floor leadership in his team’s victory. Quality effort this past weekend.
CHRIS GOLDEN – 2012 – G – WISCONSIN LUTHERAN
Wasn’t as assertive this past weekend but still turned in a quality overall effort to the tune of 13 points on 6 of 11 shooting, 3 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals. Consistency and improve activity on both ends are the keys for him to focus on each week. Solid effort.
RAVONN POSEY – 2013 – C – MILWAUKEE RIVERSIDE
Really came out strong with an excellent opening half effort and then conditioning got to him a bit and he slowed in the second half. Finished with 12 points on 6 of 13 shooting, grabbed 8 rebounds, and he kicked out 3 assists. Overall he made a number of very good contributions and those will stand to significantly improve as he gets into better shape with each passing week. Nice performance this past weekend.
ABE TANEL – 2013 – G/F – HERITAGE CHRISTIAN
There may not be a kid in the league who can match this young man’s effort and hustle each passing week and the numbers continue to prove that. An intangible talent on a number of levels, Tanel does so many little things across the board and makes an excellent contribute both in terms of numbers and just his overall play that doesn’t show up in the box score. Finished this past weekend with 8 points on 4 of 7 shooting, grabbed 7 rebounds, collected 4 steals, and kicked out 2 assists. Another nice performance this weekend.
BRIAN BEARDEN JR. – 2014 – G – HOMESTEAD
While his team did not pull out the victory this past weekend, Bearden still turned in a strong efficient performance to the tune of 12 points on 5 of 7 shooting, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 steal. Made solid decisions, showed range (i.e. 2 for 3 from long range), and continues to look the part of a solid young prospect on the rise.
NICK FULLER – 2013 – G - SUN PRAIRIE
Started off a bit sluggish but turned it up as the game went on and wound up with 20 points on 8 of 18 shooting including 2 of 5 from long range. Also added 7 rebounds and an assist. Has an excellent stroke with range that extends beyond the arc. Would like to see him become more assertive and active on both ends in the coming weeks as his production across the board could really take off. Solid BOC debut this fall after missing the opening week on an unofficial visit to Wisconsin.
DEVIN STEELE – 2013 – PG – MILWAUKEE KING
Was much better this past weekend in terms of his efficiency shooting the basketball as he scored 24 points on 12 of 14 shooting, kicked out 3 assists, grabbed 4 rebounds, and had 1 steal. Overall he had a nice effort but he struggled with turnovers and needs to take that next step as a floor leader in terms of his activity defensively and playmaking ability offensively to take his game to the next level in the coming weeks. Made some nice strides forward this weekend and with continued movement in that direction he could be in line for an excellent senior campaign.
DEVANTE CHARLES – 2014 – F – MT. CARMEL (IL)
A young forward with solid instincts, Charles was much more assertive this past weekend and his production evidenced that. Finished with 6 points on 3 of 7 shooting, grabbed 7 rebounds, kicked out 3 assists, and collected 1 steal. A solid effort to build on in the coming weeks.
RILEY LACHANCE – 2014 – G – BROOKFIELD CENTRAL
Wasn’t the marksman he was during the first week but still showed excellent range and a big time stroke as he finished with 17 points on 7 of 13 shooting including 3 of 7 from beyond the arc. Added 2 steals and 1 rebound as well. His biggest asset right now is his court awareness and his perimeter stroke and both are extremely good. For him to take his overall game to the next level in the coming weeks, he’ll need to keep those areas strong and improve his floor production, assertiveness, and activity on both ends. Another solid shooting performance for one of the top shooting talents in the state regardless of class.
JIM MAROSE – 2011 – F – WISCONSIN LUTHERAN
The type of talent that coaches and teammates love because he doesn’t need the ball every single time to produce. Finished week 2 with 4 points on 2 of 4 shooting, grabbed 7 rebounds, kicked out 4 assists, and blocked 1 shot. Made nice decisions with the ball, contributed on both ends of the floor, and continues to make solid contributions each week. Needs to be more assertive and active on both ends in the coming weeks to take his game up a level or two.
DIAMONTAE MCKINLEY – 2012 – PG – WAUWATOSA EAST
Thought his performance this past weekend was better than the first minus the fact that he struggled a bit with turnovers during week 2. Finished with 4 points on 2 of 7 shooting but had 5 assists, 5 rebounds, and 3 steals. Simply needs to continue to work hard and be as active and assertive as he can on both ends in the coming weeks as he’s shown some solid improvement the during the first couple performances this fall.
