Prep Hoops Missouri takes a look at the top point/combo guards from last week’s SEMO Conference Tournament in Sikeston:
Payton Howard 6’0″ Sikeston: The talented 2020 combo guard has stepped into the role of go-to player from the Bulldogs that lost four top starters to graduation. He has proven to be ready for the new role as he averaged more than 20 points a game and led the Bulldogs to the championship game. He is a smooth performer off the dribble. Howard has a quick first step and can get to the basket easily with driving layups and effective floaters. If defenders back off of him, he can drill perimeter jumpers. Howard has signed with Saint Louis University on a baseball scholarship.
Tyrus Reddin 5’8″ Cape Girardeau Central: The super-quick 2020 point guard showcased his ability to impact the game at both ends throughout the week in leading the Tigers to the tournament championship. He was excellent in the championship game in scoring 19 points against Sikeston. His quickness and burst enabled him to get to the basket and finish at the rim. He also knocked down 3-pointers during the week, which will make him even more dangerous to defend. He was also as disruptive on the defensive end with his quick hands and ability to create turnovers.
Terridean Bogan 5’10” Charleston: A quick 2020 two-way point guard who is one of the best in the SEMO area. He is quick and strong and can get into the lane at almost any time. He scored 19 points in the Bluejays victory over Kennett in the third-place game. He can score on penetrating drives and has a nice float game to compliment it. He also hit his share of 3-pointers to keep defenders honest. He is also an impact player on defense, especially when the Bluejays turn over the full-court press, as he had several steals during the week.
Tyler Landewee 5’10” Cape Notre Dame: The 2020 point guard enjoyed a very productive weekend as helped the Bulldogs to three wins and a consolation championship. He scored 19 points in a victory over New Madrid in the consolation final. He is a strong, veteran guard who has good ball toughness on the dribble and knows where he want to go at all times. He also has the ability to change speeds and keep defenders off balance.
