Another week of action at the annual Breakfast of Champions Fall League featured some high profile names and others like 2014 G Ayinde Starling of Catholic Memorial (WI) turning in breakout performances. We continue our recap of week 3 of the 2011 BOC with our Western Conference Report…
LAMONTE BEARDEN – 2014 – PG – HOMESTEAD
Stat Line – 16 points (8-13 FG), 3 assists, 3 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 turnovers
A solid efficient performance from the field where he showed an ability to score off the bounce and knock down the mid-range jumper off the dribble. Made some solid passes and was active on the glass at times as well. Would like to see him put everything together in the final week across the board and bring energy and activity to both ends.
TONNIE COLLIER – 2012 – PF – WEST ALLIS CENTRAL
Stat Line – 20 points (9-15 FG), 11 rebounds, 1 block, 3 turnovers
Another solid efficient performance from the field and nice rebounding on both ends. Needs to reduce his turnovers and improve his decision making but he continued to impress once again this past weekend.
DAMONTRAE JEFFERSON – 2014 – PG – MILWAUKEE HAMILTON
Stat Line – 15 points (7-11 FG), 6 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, 5 turnovers
Delivered an improved floor performance filled with good decisions in terms of his shot selection, solid activity on the defensive end, and nice playmaking as well. Needs to reduce the unforced turnovers.
AYINDE STARLING – 2014 – G – CATHOLIC MEMORIAL
Stat Line – 13 points (6-12 FG), 11 rebounds, 4 blocks, 3 assists, 2 steals, 0 turnovers
A strong efficient floor effort on both ends that was active and dominant in the same sense. Slashed to the rim, attacked the glass, made things happen defensively, and distributed the rock as well. Excellent performance.
TOBY HEGNER – 2012 – PF – BERLIN
Stat Line – 12 points (4-8 FG), 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block, 1 steal, 2 turnovers
Activity was down around the basket but still managed a double-double and showed nice range once again. Would like to see him make a concerted effort to be a dominant interior talent on the blocks moving forward.
RILEY LACHANCE – 2014 – G – BROOKFIELD CENTRAL
Stat Line – 12 points (5-11 FG), 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks, 1 steal, 3 turnovers
A decent performance that showed his range and ability to shoot the basketball as well as some nice activity at times on the defensive end. Has had a number of solid performances but would really like to see him be more aggressive and active on both ends in the final week.
KEVON LOONEY – 2014 – SF – MILWAUKEE HAMILTON
Stat Line – 19 points (9-15 FG), 9 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 turnovers
Another smooth and efficient performance from the field combined with solid rebounding once again. Would like to see him be more active on the defensive end and really take his energy and aggressiveness to another level in the final week.
ABE TANEL – 2013 – G/F – HERITAGE CHRISTIAN
Stat Line – 22 points (10-12 FG), 4 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 blocks, 2 turnovers
Brought instant energy to the court on both ends and combined it with excellent hustle and intangibles to turn in an exceptionally efficient performance from the field and a solid overall floor effort. Perhaps his best performance to date.
TURNER BOTZ – 2013 – F – LITTLE CHUTE
Stat Line – 14 points (6-13 FG), 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, 1 turnover
His best effort so far this fall as he played with confidence, he showed nice range, had solid activity on the glass, and made some nice decisions with the basketball. Look for him to have a big week on the final weekend if he comes out aggressive and active on both ends of the floor.
NATHANIEL MOORE – 2013 – PG – WAUWATOSA EAST
Stat Line – 6 points (2-4 FG), 5 assists, 4 rebounds, 1 steal, 4 turnovers

T.J. SCHLUNDT – 2014 – G/F – OCONOMOWOC
Stat Line – 13 points (6-17 FG), 6 rebounds, 1 block, 1 steal, 1 turnover
Struggled from the field but was more active on the glass. Needs to generate more consistency in terms of his efficiency from the field and continue to elevate his overall floor game in the final week.
DUANE WILSON JR. – 2013 – PG – DOMINICAN
Stat Line – 30 points (11-20 FG), 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, 6 turnovers
Outside of a handful of turnovers due to constantly attacking the paint off the bounce, Wilson turned in arguably his best performance in his BOC career. He knocked down 6 of 8 from long range, attacked the glass, scored off the bounce, showed excellent in and out dribble penetration, finished strong of each leg in transition, and hit the mid-range pull up off the bounce as well. Grabbed an offer from Tennessee on Sunday so it was an all-around nice weekend for him on the hardwood.
DAVID JESPERSON – 2013 – F – MERRILL
Stat Line – 10 points (4-9 FG), 10 rebounds, 2 blocks, 1 assist, 2 turnovers
Was solid on the glass and showed range from the field. Still battling back from an illness, Jesperson gave a decent overall performance that should improve in the final week as he continues to get back to 100%.
BRANDON KEY – 2015 – PG – WEST ALLIS CENTRAL
Stat Line – 14 points (6-19 FG), 5 assists, 4 rebounds, 4 turnovers
Made some solid passes and showed nice dribble penetration skills and playmaking skills in transition. His shot selection and activity on the defensive end needs to improve along with his decision making to improve his efficiency and productivity in the final week.
CEDRIC POLK – 2014 – G – WISCONSIN LUTHERAN
Stat Line – 13 points (5-14 FG), 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks, 2 turnovers
Was active at times and aggressive off the bounce but needs to improve his shot selection and efficiency along with his overall activity on the defensive end in the final week to take his floor production to the next level.
REED TIMMER – 2014 – PG – NEW BERLIN EISENHOWER
Stat Line – 22 points (9-17 FG), 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, 2 turnovers
Was solid from the field, knocked down perimeter shots once again, made some nice decisions, and was active on the glass and defensively. Would like to see him increase his assists to turnover ratio moving forward while staying active and aggressive on the offensive end in the final week.
