2023 6’6 Garwey Dual – George Hill All-Indy 17U 

Garwey Dual did a little bit of everything on Wednesday night at The Run to lead George Hill All-Indy to a big win over Team Trezz. Dual has high level wiggle to his game, plays with the ball on a string, and was impossible to keep out of the paint. When attacking the basket he has great body control to finish through contact and made good reads finding open shooters and making drop off passes for easy buckets. Defensively Dual was all over the place and has elite hands and instincts - getting steals, deflections, and blocking a couple shots at the rim. The Providence commit also showed nice touch from deep making a pair of catch and shoot threes. One of the top risers of the Spring nationally, Dual continues to put together big time performances. 

2023 6’3 Corey Hadnot – Team Temple 17U 

Corey Hadnot finished with 17 points to power Team Temple to a big win over Ohio C2K on opening night of the Live Period. Hadnot is a physical and athletic lead guard who is at his best attacking off the dribble getting downhill for paint touches. He put down an explosive highlight real dunk, finished at the rim and showed good vision on his drives finding shooters and cutting teammates for easy looks. Hadnot has great positional size and has continued to improve his point guard skills showing a tight handle to break down defenders along with his passing ability. He should see his recruitment continue to expand over the next month. 

2023 6’1 Brock Harding – MidPro Academy 17U 

Fresh off his commitment to Iowa, Brock Harding started July with a big matchup against Brandon Rechsteiner and Atlanta Allstars. Harding rose to the occasion, finishing with 16 points, lighting it up from deep making 4 threes, and running the show for MidPro. Harding is a true floor general who does a great job of getting his team into sets and making plays for himself and teammates off the bounce, and is especially effective operating in ball screens. Although he still needs to get stronger, Harding has become a more consistent as a shooter, competes defensively and Wednesday was further validation that he belongs at the high major level. 

2024 6’0 Niko Lucero – 3D Empire 16U

Niko Lucero has been one of the top shooters in the 16U division all year for 3D Empire and he started off his July on fire from deep. Lucero connected on 6 three pointers to finish with 18 points in 3D Empire’s win over MidPro Academy on Wednesday night at The Run. Lucero plays with an abundance of confidence on the perimeter with a pure jumper, got his team into their sets in the half court and did a good job defensively leading to transition opportunities for his team. 

2024 6’8 Sekou Konneh – Team Haliburton 17U 

Sekou Konneh is a prospect that may be on the verge of seeing his recruitment blow up. He picked up his first offer from UW-Milwaukee this week and backed that up with a strong performance playing up at the 17U level in his debut for Team Haliburton. At 6’8 Konneh is more of a 4 at this stage but has a nice perimeter skill set and should be able to develop into a pure wing. Konneh plays with physicality on both ends of the floor and was unfazed by the older competition finishing with 14 points in a win for Team Haliburton. 

2023 6’8 Treyvon Byrd – Team Trezz 17U 

Treyvon Byrd is a wing prospect with good size on the perimeter and some really intriguing upside. At 6’8 he is long and lean and was comfortable operating as a ball handler in PNR actions. Byrd is a fluid athlete, able to slash to the rim where he uses his length and coordination to finish through contact and get to the free throw line. Right now Byrd is at his best using his athleticism in the open court he put down a big time dunk that turned heads in the gym. Byrd needs to improves as a jump shooter but his physical tools and upside were on full display Wednesday night.
