Plenty of intriguing players of note at the 15U level of the tournament. Here are five talented players that all stood out for their strong play during session two. 

Niko Abusara – IL Jaguars – G
Even though he always had plenty of defensive attention around him, Abusara proved to be a lethal shooter from deep. The 6’0” guard does a great job moving without the ball to create some space and spot up for shots out on the wing. When the defense keyed in on him, Abusara simply moved further back and continued to hit them. 

Quincy Cole – Cream City Chosen – F
Cole is a highly intriguing and lanky 6’7” wing forward. He has good size at his age but still is very agile and moves well. With this he defended nearly anyone on the court very well on the interior as well as out on the perimeter. While he made his biggest impact on the defensive side of the ball, he was able to chip in a few baskets around the paint. 

Caden Kirkman – Midwest Prospect Academy East – C
A big strong 6’7” post that proved to be very difficult to stop on the block. Uses his strength to overpower other posts inside but also has good touch to score at a high percentage. Moves well around the post with nice mobility and footwork, additionally can hit shots in the mid-range.  

Danny Kniep – JH1 Elite – F
The strong 6’6” power forward could not be stopped inside at times. Has some good post moves with nice footwork including an impressive turnaround jumper that proved very tricky to defend. Did not get a ton of post touches, but took advantage of it when he did. 

Alex Sherwood – Wisconsin Blizzard – F
Sherwood continues to impress with a great skill set for a young 6’6” forward. Very tough matchup with his size but has the ability to score in a variety of ways which includes spotting up from three, posting up, and driving to the basket.
