6’10 Francis Howell: Big Sam had a huge week at the Francis Howell/O’Fallon Christian Round-Robin where he averaged 29 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks a game. The big performance of course, was the 55-point, 18-rebound, five block masterpiece in the 71-63 victory over O’Fallon-Christian. He was dominant in the low post at both ends of the court while showcasing his 3-point shooting stroke. Now, playing at a robust 260-pounds, he was looking like a baby Luka Garza last week. His recruiting is still wide open folks.
6’6 Fort Zumwalt North: The smooth 2021 shooting guard averaged 20 points, seven rebounds and four assists in leading the Panthers to the championship of the Lafayette Round Robin. KJ has made his bones as a 3-point shooter throughout his career, but he done an excellent job of diversifying his game in the past year. He has gotten stronger so now he can beat defenders off the drive and score in traffic. He is also a very good playmaker who can create for his teammates. He is still an unsigned senior.
6’7 MICDS: The 2022 wing averaged 14 points, seven rebounds and four assists in leading a balanced Rams team to the championship of the MICDS Round-Robin. He is an excellent all-purpose player who can wear many hats to help his team win. He can play the facilitating point guard role or he can attack the offensive boards with his size, and everything in between. He attacks the basket in a smooth manner and he can be very disruptive on the defensive end with his size and length.
6’4 St. Dominic: The burly 245-pound 2021 forward averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds a game in leading the Crusaders to a repeat championship in the St. Dominic Tournament. He is such a match-up problem with his ability to play bully-ball in the paint with his size and strength while also stepping outside to knock down 3-pointers at a nice clip. He set the tone early with 29 points and 16 rebounds in the Crusaders’ first-round victory over Timberland.
6’2 Confluence: The talented 2021 guard averaged 16 points in leading the Titans to three victories and the championship of the Francis Howell/O’Fallon Christian Round Robin. He is a creative scoring threat who has a quick first step to get to the basket and the ability to knock down jumpers off the dribble and stretch it out to 3-point range. He is capable of putting up a lot of points in a hurry when he is really feeling it.
