TOP PERFORMERS
(Note – Listed in alphabetical order)

Andre Carroll – 2015 – G – B.G.C. Elite
(6-1/155 – Wauwatosa West H.S. – Wauwatosa, WI)

In a double overtime loss to Team BOLTT on Saturday Carroll was exceptional as he attacked the rim to the tune of 23 points.  He scored off the bounce, in the open court, he knocked down mid-range looks, and he showed range beyond the arc in a big time performance for the young sophomore to be.

Marquise Carter – 2013 – G – DTA Spartans
(6-0/160 – Wauwatosa East H.S. – Milwaukee, WI)

Carter continues to deliver consistent and solid performances this spring and day 2 was no exception as he showed a solid stroke from beyond the arc, found ways to attack the rim off the bounce with success, etc.  He continues to develop each time he hits the floor.  

Riley Lachance – 2014 – G – RAS
(6-2/160 – Brookfield Central H.S. – Brookfield, WI)

One of the top pure shooters in his class regionally and nationally, Lachance continues to show improved handles and breakdown skills and Saturday he delivered some quality performances once again with a variety of mid-range pull up jumpers, trey balls, and dribble drives to the rack.

Nick Noskowiak – 2015 – G – Wisconsin Playground Warriors
(6-3/170 – Sun Prairie H.S. – Sun Prairie, WI)

Blistered the nets for 25 including 5 from long range in a day 2 loss to Chicago Lockdown.  Noskowiak has had a stellar spring campaign already and Saturday he was at it again off the bounce, pulling up, and raining jumpers from long range.

Evan Wesenberg – 2014 – F – Wisconsin Swing
(6-6/195 – Germantown H.S. – Germantown, WI)

In a tough contest against IBA Muscle Milk the young junior to be stepped up with a tough 14 point effort while serving as a force on both ends in the paint.  He scored around the basket, attacked the glass, and delivered a solid overall performance on Saturday.

STOCK BOOSTERS

MJ Delmore – 2013 – PG – Wisconsin Playmakers
(5-11/155 – Wisconsin Dells H.S. – Wisconsin Dells, WI)

Tends to get lost in the shuffle at times with the likes of Thomas, Hegner, etc. collecting most of the attention but the young Dells lead guard was impressive on day 2 as he drained a number of perimeter shots, attacked the defense off the bounce, and delivered some solid floor performances.  He plays hard, has improved his stroke, and continues to bring solid performances to the court each time he takes it.
 
Devante Jackson – 2014 – F – RAS
(6-7/175 – Brown Deer H.S. – Milwaukee, WI)

Still raw in some areas, Jackson has nice length and athleticism and he showed flashes of his potential again on day 2.  He runs the floor well, has solid instincts on the glass, can finish in transition and half-court sets and uses his length and athleticism to showcase a versatile floor game that continues to improve.  Jackson opened some eyes again on Saturday.

STAR WATCH

Deonte Burton – 2013 – SF – TP Elite
(6-5/225 – Milwaukee Vincent H.S. – Milwaukee, WI)

Helped his team to two victories on day 2 as he attacked the rim when needed and came through with some big shots in the process.  When the situation called for it Burton was there to deliver.

Bronson Koenig – 2013 – PG – Wisconsin Swing
(6-2/170 – La Crosse Aquinas H.S. – La Crosse, WI)

Served as a facilitator for most of the day on Saturday as he delivered passes to Fuller, Fischer, etc. in helping lead the Swing to victory.  Mixed in a number of solid jumpers and produced two quality performances in wins on day 2.
