In the last tournaments of the summer, a number of Colorado Grassroots players performed at a high level on Saturday. Here's a recap of which prospects have been finishing AAU in style:
Troy Brady (14 three-pointers, 58 points in two games), Braxton Bertolette (32 points in one game), and Kolton Peterson (7 three-pointers, 32 points in one game) all proved their worth as top-5 shooters in our rankings. Bertolette was our player of the week for his performance last week, Brady had an excellent July for the Colorado Chaos, and Peterson dominated in front of several Division I coaches at the Sunflower Showcase in Kansas.
Hunter Maldonado, a 6-foot-5 talent for the Colorado Miners, poured in 29 points in an 83-70 victory at the Las Vegas Fab 48. They dropped their second round game to the No. 1 overall seeded Indy Hoosiers in the 16U Invite Championship bracket, but what a performance by Maldonado on a big-time stage to open the play.
Another Miner shines against the best:
Breon Harper, a 2018 player for the 15's Elite team, dazzled with 24 points in a loss to the No. 3 ranked squad in the nation by Indivisible Hoops, Team Takeover (DC). The guard's performance came during the opening round of the Fab 48 Invitational Championship bracket. He is a top-10 prospect in his class by Prep Hoops Colorado.
Solomon Stark, a 2017 guard, drove the length of the court and cashed a beautiful little game-winning floater, giving his Elevation 16U Black team the Silver Championship at the Hardwood Classic in Kansas City. Stark will be a key player for a wildly improved Douglas County squad this winter.
More Chaos guards produce:
2017 backcourt mates Quinten Gutierrez and Emmanuel N’Tula (Kelly Walsh, Wyoming) each tallied 23 points for the Colorado Chaos D1 Ambassadors 2017 team in a victory. Gutierrez has hovered under-the-radar a touch, but he has some offensive abilities.
