Over the past several months, James Seagreaves has been one of the breakout stars in Wisconsin’s 2024 class. After a strong grassroots season with the Wisconsin Swing last year, Seagreaves has continued that level of play into this year at Monroe High School. 

After Monroe High School graduated all five starters from last season’s team, Seagreaves has been able to fill a major void in the lineup leading them in both scoring and rebounds this season. Last season as a sophomore, the 6’5” wing forward averaged only 2.8 points per game but has greatly increased that number. Right now, the junior is all the way up to 16.4 points per game. This is in addition to 10.5 rebounds a game. “Taking opportunities given to you with confidence,” he expressed as the reason for his breakout season. 

“An above the rim slasher,” is how Seagreaves describes his own game. The tough attacking wing has continued to round out his game to be an impactful player on both ends of the floor. His offensive game has continued to expand with his jump shot and being able to his shots from the outside. As well to his bounce, he has good length and plays with plenty of energy.  Not only a standout on the hardwood but also on the football field as well. 

To finish off his high school season, Seagreaves is looking to make a run in the playoffs as well to earning first team all-conference. Following that, he will team up with Brock Massey, Gavin Wie, Eli Podoll, and others as a part of a talented 17U Wisconsin Swing squad.
