BUCKS (3 – 0)
KEVON LOONEY – 2014 – SF – MILWAUKEE HAMILTON
One of the premiere young prospects in the state, Looney continues to impress with his court instincts, fundamental skills, and ability to make an impact. This past weekend he was at it once again with 10 points on 5 of 12 shooting, 6 rebounds, and 1 steal.
NATHANIEL MOORE – 2013 – PG – WAUWATOSA EAST
Rebounded from a bit of a subpar effort during the second week to finish with 4 points on 2 of 7 shooting but added 4 assists, grabbed 3 rebounds, and blocked 2 shots. More importantly his turnovers were down and he was a solid facilitator offensively in helping his team to victory. Decent effort this weekend despite struggling a bit from the field.
TERRANCE SALTER – 2011 – PG – NICOLET
Much like Moore, Salter also served as a solid role player this past weekend as he finished with 6 points on 3 of 5 shooting, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists without any turnovers. Salter has solid instincts, sees the floor well, and was efficient and productive at the same time in a nice contributing effort this weekend.
ZAK SHOWALTER – 2012 – G – GERMANTOWN
Turned in an extremely impressive floor performance that was dominant on a number of levels. Finished with 15 points on 7 of 15 shooting, grabbed 6 rebounds, collected 6 steals, kicked out 5 assists, and blocked a shot. Add to the mix the fact that he didn’t have one turnover. Exceptional all around performance that set the tone early for his team’s victory.
DAN STUDER – 2012 – PF – GERMANTOWN
Captured POY honors with an excellent performance that was efficient and dominant in terms of both production and overall impact. Scored 21 points on 10 of 16 shooting, grabbed 10 rebounds, kicked out 1 assist and collected 1 steal. Made huge baskets at key points in the game to help stall potential rallies by the opposition and served as a dominant interior force on both ends in one of his best performances to date. Strong effort this past weekend.
MAGIC (1 – 2)
AUSTIN ARIANS – 2012 – SF – MADISON EDGEWOOD
Struggled significantly in the first half but rebounded in the second half to make a huge contribution and it was a direct result of being more active and aggressive on both ends. Finished with 10 points on 4 of 11 shooting, grabbed 5 rebounds, collected 4 steals, and kicked out 2 assists. If he can take his second half performance to the entire game in the coming weeks then Arians is bound to have some very productive and dominant weeks ahead.
DAVID BURRELL – 2014 – F – MILWAUKEE HAMILTON
Started off slowly but turned it up in the second half to help mount a huge second half rally that eventually fell a couple points short. Finished with 15 points on 7 of 15 shooting, grabbed 4 rebounds, collected 2 steals, and blocked 1 shot. With improved activity on both ends he could really see his production grow significantly.
C.J. MALONE – 2012 – PG – MENOMONEE FALLS
Served as a major factor in the second half rally as well as Malone operated as both a facilitator and scorer at key points during the run. Finished with 13 points on 5 of 14 shooting but he was 3 of 6 from long range. Added 7 assists, 3 steals, and 1 rebound while only committing one turnover. Was efficient in terms of his decision making and outside of the fact that he struggled from the field, Malone’s overall performance was his best so far this fall. With continued efforts like his second half performance this past weekend, Malone stands to have a strong season this year.
MARQUISE CARTER – 2013 – G – WAUWATOSA EAST
Serves as more of a scoring guard and this past weekend it was evident once again as he finished with 14 points on 6 of 13 shooting while also collecting 2 rebounds. Knocked down some key baskets in the comeback attempt and showed solid range as well. The key for him to elevate his play is to be more active on both ends in terms of his overall floor production. If he does that his game will really start to take off.
HEAT (1 – 2)
T.J. SCHLUNDT – 2014 – G/F – OCONOMOWOC
Overall his team struggled but Schlundt was solid, efficient, and effective to the tune of 7 points on 3 of 4 shooting, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals. Did what he could when he had the ball and showed range, awareness, and an ability to contribute on both ends. Would like to see him be more active and assertive on both ends in the coming weeks.
DUANE WILSON JR. – 2013 – PG – DOMINICAN
Finished this past weekend with 21 points on 8 of 15 shooting including 3 of 8 from long range. Added 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block, and 1 steal. Struggled early with turnovers but rebounded to turn in a solid floor effort and an improved shooting performance on the first couple of weeks.
CELTICS (1 – 2)
GIOVANNI BRAY – 2011 – G – MILWAUKEE HAMILTON
Didn’t produce the same numbers as the previous couple of weeks but to prove once again that numbers don’t mean everything, Bray led his team to victory this past weekend instead. Scored a number of key baskets to help fend off a huge second half rally and finished with 16 points on 8 of 17 shooting, grabbed 7 rebounds, kicked out 2 assists, blocked 1 shot, and collected 1 steal. Turnovers were high so his decision making still has room to grow but he made good decisions in the second half and scored huge baskets time and time again to seal the victory.
IAN RAY – 2012 – SG – WHITNALL
Continues to impress with his perimeter shooting ability and this past weekend was no exception as he scored 19 points on 7 of 12 shooting including a 5 of 10 performance from long range. Added 5 rebounds, collected 2 steals, kicked out 2 assists, and blocked 1 shot. Was efficient, effective, and made a number of huge baskets during the first half to break the game wide open including 4 consecutive trey balls during one period of time.
KYLE RIEDER – 2011 – C – BRILLION
Continues to take steps forward in terms of his development and this past weekend was no exception as the raw big finished with 6 points on 3 of 5 shooting, 11 rebounds, and 1 blocked shot. Showed solid instincts on both ends, served as a dominant rebounding force, and took some solid steps forward in the process. Nice effort.
MATT VAN SCYOC – 2012 – SF – GREEN LAKE
Was more active at times this past weekend and the result was a better overall floor performance. Finished with 12 points on 4 of 11 shooting including a 2 of 5 effort from long range. Also collected 11 rebounds and kicked out 4 assists. Wasn’t as active defensively this past weekend and struggled with some unforced turnovers so those are areas to improve in the coming weeks. Overall a solid effort across the board that he build on.
