WAYNE BLACKSHEAR – 2011 – SG – MORGAN PARK (IL)
Rebounded from a sluggish first half to score 19 of a game high 30 points and helped lead Morgan Park to a 66-64 victory over Milwaukee Hamilton Saturday night. Took the game over when it mattered the most with a number of key baskets down the stretch to help seal the victory.
GIOVANNI BRAY – 2011 – G – MILWAUKEE HAMILTON
Was spectacular on Saturday night to the tune of 28 points and knocked down four trey balls in the process. Hit the mid range shot, knocked down a number of shots from beyond the arc, and showed solid dribble penetration skills, etc. Was virtually unstoppable at times and did everything he could for Hamilton in a loss on Saturday night.
MITCHELL FARR – 2011 – G – RACINE CASE’
Was the driving force in Case winning both games over the weekend as Farr scored 20 on Friday and followed that up with a 21 points effort on Saturday. Hit 8 trey balls over the course of both games and showed an ability to score off the bounce as well.
JAMEEL MCKAY – 2012 – F – MILWAUKEE PULASKI
Served as a dominant interior force in a 20 points 15 rebound effort on Friday as Milwaukee Pulaski defeated Brookfield Academy in the opening game. Was active around the glass on both ends and finished with consistency in the paint.
MATT KRUEGER – 2011 – G/F – FRANKLIN
Really came up big in both victories for Franklin this past weekend as he scored 19 points in the opening game and followed that up with a 25 point effort on Saturday. Showed an ability to score off the bounce, hit the mid range jumper, and knocked down six trey balls over the course of two days with three in each game. Excellent two day effort.
NICK ROMANOWSKI – 2011 – F/C – FRANKLIN
Struggled a bit on Friday with a 10 point effort but bounced back in a huge way on Saturday to score a game high 33 points including 18 of those during a pivotal second half. He served as a dominant interior force on both ends in a solid two day effort.
COREY SMITH – 2012 – PG – NICOLET
Really opened some eyes this past weekend with a couple of quality efforts that helped fuel two victories for Nicolet. Scored 10 points in the opening game and followed that up with a 17 point effort on Saturday. Handled the ball well, made some solid passes, and showed an ability to hit the mid range jumper as well.
JAMALL TAYLOR – 2012 – G – DOMINICAN
Served as a huge factor in both of Dominican’s victories over the weekend as his perimeter shooting was the catalyst in a number of key baskets over the weekend. Looked to be back to 100 percent after a season ending knee injury cut his season short as Taylor hit his mid range shot with consistency and knocked down the trey ball as well. Scored 16 points on Friday and followed that up with a game high 18 points on Saturday in an excellent two day performance.
CHRISTIAN WILLIAMS – 2011 – F/C – NICOLET
The big wide body interior talent was too much to handle over the weekend as Williams went for 19 points in the opening game and followed it up with 22 points on Saturday as Nicolet ran their record to 2-0. He finished in the paint, knocked down his free throws, and was active on the glass in a couple of high quality efforts this past weekend.
DUANE WILSON JR. – 2013 – PG – DOMINICAN
Showed improved explosion and athleticism over the course of both days and paired with Jamall Taylor to serve as a lethal 1-2 punch for opposing teams. Scored a game high 19 points on Friday in the victory and followed that up with a solid 16 point effort on Saturday. Attacked the rim off the dribble, made a number of solid passes in transition, and hit the trey ball as well.
