Antonio Curro — NATIONAL RECRUITING DIRECTOR - NY2LASPORTS.COM
The final week of the annual Breakfast of Champions fall basketball league saw some exciting performances once again by players like 2012 PG C.J. Malone. Here’s a recap of some of the Eastern Conference from this past weekend which featured a majority of the upperclassmen.
BUCKS – CHAMPIONS
MARQUISE CARTER – 2013 – G – WAUWATOSA EAST
Struggled in the opener but rebounded to turn in arguably his best performance of the fall in terms of impact and efficiency to help push his team to the championship. In the first game scored 5 points, grabbed 3 rebounds, and kicked out 1 assist but was only 2 of 7 from the field. The championship was a completely different story as Carter dropped 17 points on 6 of 10 shooting including a 4 of 7 performance from long range and added 2 rebounds as well. Showed range, made better decisions, and wrapped with a solid effort in the final game.
JAMON JACKSON-WILSON – 2012 – F – BROWN DEER
One of the most powerful athletes on the board in the 2012 class, Jackson-Wilson has freakish leaping ability but this fall he also showed improved ability to attack the glass and make things happen on both ends. Last weekend he wrapped his fall efforts with a couple of solid efforts and once again put everyone on notice that he’s on the rise right now. In the first game he scored 11 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, collected 2 steals, blocked 1 shot, and kicked out 1 assist. The championship saw him finish with 4 points, 10 rebounds, and 1 assist.
CARRINGTON LOVE – 2012 – G – MILWAUKEE PIUS XI
Was huge in the opening game before taking on more of a complimentary role in the championship game but showed flashes of promise on both ends and looks the part of one to watch this season in the 2012 class. In the opener he finished with 17 points on 6 of 8 shooting while also grabbing a rebound and a steal. The championship saw him struggle from the field and he finished with 5 points but added a couple of rebounds, 2 steals, 1 blocked shot, and 1 assist. Efficiency and consistency game in and game out will be important for him this upcoming season.
C.J. MALONE – 2012 – PG – MENOMONEE FALLS
Took the court as a pure SG this fall and by the end of the BOC he was taking nice strides forward as a PG in terms of his decision making and efficiency. Came up with some huge plays in key situations in both games to help his team to the championship last weekend. In the first game he scored 9 points on 4 of 8 shooting, grabbed 2 rebounds, and collected 2 steals. The championship he stepped it up a bit with 17 points on 6 of 8 shooting including 3 of 4 from long range, 3 assists, and 2 rebounds. Solid effort this past weekend.
RAVONN POSEY – 2013 – C – MILWAUKE RIVERSIDE
Served as a consistent force week in and week out this fall and last weekend was no exception as he found ways to grab key rebounds and score in the paint. In the first game Posey finished with 7 points on 3 of 6 shooting, 4 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 1 steal. The championship saw him finish with 13 points on 6 of 11 shooting, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists. Was efficient, showed nice touch, and made an impact on both ends last weekend. Solid effort.
HEAT – 2ND PLACE
NICK ALLEN – 2013 – PG – MONTESSORI H.S.
Was solid this past weekend and finished off on a strong note heading into the high school season with one of his top efforts. Opened with 10 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals on 5 of 11 shooting and wrapped in the championship game with 16 points on 4 of 11 shooting, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 steal. Was solid across the board and made an impact on both ends. Solid overall efforts in both games in the final week.
CHRIS GOLDEN – 2012 – G – WISCONSIN LUTHERAN
Really impressed on a number of levels this fall with his ability to score the basketball and a lethal mid range stroke that wet the nets with a high level of consistency week in and week out. The final week saw more of the same and he showed flashes of creating at a high level too which was a nice improvement. In the first game he scored 12 points on 6 of 11 shooting, kicked out 5 assists, grabbed 3 rebounds, and collected 2 steals. The final game saw him finish with 8 points on 4 of 8 shooting, 2 rebounds, and 1 assists. Solid effort this past weekend.
JIM MAROSE – 2011 – PF – WISCONSIN LUTHERAN
One of the quiet contributors this fall as he didn’t score a lot but he always found a way to make an impact in other areas with his hustle and instincts. The opening game for him last weekend saw Marose finish with 2 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks, and 1 steal. In the finale he wrapped with 2 points, 7 rebounds, and 1 blocked shot. Always brings a solid floor game to the table and with increased aggressiveness on the offensive end he could slid into the double double area with some consistency as he’s already an excellent rebounder.
ALEX OLSON – 2011 – G – BROOKFIELD CENTRAL
With football wrapped we finally got a chance to catch Alex for the first time and while a bit rusty he still showed some solid game at times as he started to get ready for the upcoming season. The first game saw him finish with 9 points on 4 of 8 shooting, 3 rebounds, 2 steals, and 1 assist. He wrapped up his weekend efforts with 3 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds, and 1 steal. Has solid instincts, nice range, a good feel for the game, and a nice skill package. Decent effort.
NICK OLSON – 2012 – F – BROOKFIELD CENTRAL
Really liked how he finished with his best efforts this fall in the final week as he was active on both ends, attacked the glass, and found ways to make an impact on both ends with his hustle and skill package. The opening game saw him finish with 10 points on 4 of 11 shooting, 7 rebounds, and 1 assist. In the championship he turned in one of his best efforts of the fall with 6 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, and 1 steal. Has nice instincts, a solid mid range stroke, etc. Should have a solid upcoming high school season with hard work.
GIOVANNI BRAY – 2012 – G – MILWAUKEE HAMILTON
One of the most explosive athletes in the 2011 class without question, Bray is an ultra quick perimeter talent who can make an impact on both ends at his best. That was evident last weekend as Bray wrapped with his best overall performance this fall. The opening game efforts turned in were decent as he finished with 10 points on 4 of 10 shooting, 5 rebounds, and 1 steal. However, he struggled with a high number of turnovers in that particular game. The finale for him this fall was a completely different story as he was spectacular to the tune of 26 points on 11 of 20 shooting including 2 of 4 from long range, 4 assists, 4 rebounds, and 3 steals with only one turnover. His decision making in the final game was much improved and he was active, aggressive, but also very efficient in turning in an excellent floor effort. Efforts like the final game during the high school season will make him an immediate impact player for Hamilton.
KIWANE CROWDER – 2011 – G – MILWAUKEE HAMILTON
Really took his floor contributions up a couple levels in the final week and the end results were very positive. The opening game saw him score 4 points, kick out 6 assists, grab 4 rebounds, and collect 1 steal. He wrapped with 5 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 blocks in the final game making for a solid week in terms of his overall contributions. Showed nice vision, was efficient, made solid passes, and found ways to contribute with and without the basketball. Nice performance.
LUKE FISCHER – 2013 – F/C – GERMANTOWN
Not too much more can be said about Fischer that hasn’t already been said or written over the past couple months. Bottom line is he’s one of the top 2013 prospects in Wisconsin right now; it’s as simple as that. This past weekend Fischer captured Player of the Week honors with a huge showing. The first game saw him go for 15 points on 6 of 9 shooting, 5 rebounds, 2 blocks, and 1 steal. That was an appetizer to the finale as he closed his fall efforts with 21 points on 9 of 17 shooting, 15 rebounds, and 4 blocks in a dominant interior performance that showed skill, instincts, range, etc. Exceptional effort in the final week.
NATHANIEL MOORE – 2013 – PG – WAUWATOSA EAST
Opened things up with 6 points, 2 assists, and 2 rebounds in the first game and wrapped with a much better effort to the tune of 8 points, 5 assists, 6 rebounds, and 1 steal. Showed solid vision, make some excellent passes, and had a solid floor game in the finale. For him to reach his potential its games like his last game he needs to deliver with more consistency. Decent performance in the last week.
MATT VAN SCYOC – 2012 – F – GREEN LAKE
Delivered a consistent performance in both games in the final week as he opened with 13 points on 6 of 10 shooting and 6 rebounds and closed with 11 points on 5 of 9 shooting, 8 rebounds, and 2 assists. Scored off the bounce, was active on the glass, and found ways to contribute with and without the basketball.
JAMAAR MCKAY – 2013 – SF – MILWAUKEE WASHINGTON
Wasn’t at his best in the final week but found ways to make an impact nonetheless. The first game saw him finish with 11 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 steal while the finale saw him wrap with 8 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal. Showed an ability to attack the rim off the bounce, found ways to get to the free throw line, attacked the glass on both ends, and overall showed flashes of his nice potential. Decent effort this past weekend.
DAVID SHEPARD – 2012 – F – CEDARBURG
Gave a decent effort in the finale week to close out his fall efforts. The first game saw him finish with 9 points on 3 of 5 shooting from long range, 2 rebounds, and 1 steal and he wrapped with 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 1 blocked shot. Showed excellent range in the final week but wasn’t as active as he usually is and that has to be his calling card every time he takes the court to reach his potential.
HAKI STAMPLEY – 2011 – SG – MILWAUKEE HAMILTON
Finished off a solid fall campaign with some decent performances in the final week. The first game saw him score 19 points on 7 of 15 shooting, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block, and 1 steal in typical Stampley fashion where he found ways to contribute across the board. The finale saw him close with 13 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, and 1 steal. Showed range, instincts, an ability to contribute across the board, and overall gave a decent effort in the final week.
ABE TANEL – 2013 – G/F – HERITAGE CHRISTIAN
Hustle and intangibles are his calling card and that was front and center for him once again in the final week as the first game saw him finish with 8 points on 4 of 10 shooting, 9 rebounds, and 4 steals and he closed with 10 points on 4 of 8 shooting, 5 rebounds, 3 steals, and 1 assist. Plays as hard as anyone on the court and gives a great effort on both ends that results in solid floor production every time he takes the court. Nice overall hustle and effort this past weekend.
