A guard to be very familiar with moving forward in Wisconsin’s 2026 class is Lamont Hamilton. In his freshman season he already made a massive impact averaging in double figures scoring and was one of the top players regardless of age division at the recent NY2LA Swish N’ Dish Tournament this spring. 

This past season at Racine St. Catherine’s High School he averaged 13.5 points per game along with 3 assists, 2 rebounds, and 1.9 steals. He did so very efficiently as well by shooting over 60% from the field and over 40% from three. Hamilton was a big reason that his team went 25-2 on the season.  

To start of the grassroots season with Power 5, Hamilton was able to lead them to the championship of the 15U platinum division at Swish N’ Dish. He was one of the top scorers of the entire tournament, including going for twenty points in the second half alone of the victory in the championship game.

Hamilton is one of the more skilled and electric playmaking point guards in the regions 2026 class. He can score the ball at a high level and take over games but is also a skilled passer with good vision. While not the biggest of guards, he has great strength for his size playing through contact as well to having great moves off the dribble and burst of quickness. Not only can he get all the way to the basket with ease with all tools but also has a good ability to create his own shot from the outside. There are few freshman players with his combination of abilities with the ball in his hands.
