Alphebictly here are the TopTriple Shooters:
Damon Glasser Damon Glasser 6'4" | SG Dickinson | 2024 State ND |6-0 G| Dickinson/ND Attack – A sharpshooter from beyond the arc. Damon can get hot and in a hurry and stay that way. He understands how to get open. Glasser will be one of the best in the West. Damon is a smart kid that understands what is a good shot. Glasser has put on a few impressive shooting performances this summer at team camps. He has a bright future in Dickinson when it comes to knocking down treys.
Bode Hoeg Bode Hoeg 6'2" | PG Fargo North | 2024 State ND |6-0 G| Fargo North – He is a leader and floor general. When his team needs a 3, Hoeg will be there to hit it. Bode can consistently hit the 3-ball off the catch. He has solid footwork. Hoeg can also drill the three if his defender goes under the ball screen. For ECI this spring he had many big and timely shots for his squad. He is a very solid player with a promising future in hoops.
Carter Vrchota Carter Vrchota 6'0" | SG Central Cass | 2024 State ND |6-0 G| Central Cass/Master Basketball Academy – A marksmen from 3-point land. Carter can also slash and penetrate, so defenders need to play him straight up. I like his confidence and willingness to take big shots. Carter has an amazing “court sense”. He always seems to move into the right spot on the floor before the defense reacts. Vrchota spaces the floor well. Carter squares up nicely and shoots it smoothly and without any wasted movement. Check out this shooter from CC.
Isaiah Schafer Isaiah Schafer 6'1" | CG Bismarck Century | 2024 State #246 Nation ND |6-1 G| Bismarck Century/ECI – This young and talented combo-guard hit 40 triples in the WDA last season, which is very rare for a freshman to do. On top of that, he shot 40% from beyond the arc! Isaiah shoots it extremely well in catch-and-shoot situations. He has a high IQ which enables him to read the defense and move to open spaces for shots. I like the rhythm and timing he shoots with. Schafer’s range extends well beyond the high school arc. He is absolutely a top-tier shooter from deep.
Jace Jochim Jace Jochim 6'1" | SG Linton/HMB | 2024 State ND |5-11 G| Linton-HMB/ECI – He lit it up on JV this year for the Lions. Jace had a great spring shooting the ball in AAU games. He was one of the best and most consistent shooters for the ECI teams. Next season on varsity Jochim will have the green light from downtown. I expect him to put up impressive numbers. Jace has a quick release and good flow with his jumper. He shoots it confidently and accurately. Expect Jace to finish out his summer hot from the arc.
Jake Shobe Jake Shobe 6'0" | SG Dickinson Trinity | 2024 State ND |6-0 G| Dickinson Trinity/ND Attack – This young buck has already played in a Region Championship and a State Tournament. It is fair to say that Jake knows what it is like to take big shots in big games. Shobe shoots left-handed. He is an excellent shooter from beyond the arc. Jake has an extremely soft shot with great shooting mechanics. He plays calm and never seems to rush his shot. Jake will be one of the best 3-point shooting artists in Class B next year.
Javin Friesz Javin Friesz 6'2" | CG Flasher | 2024 State ND |6-1 G| Flasher – His game-high for 3-pointers made is 8! Young Friesz was an All-Region selection this past year. Javin is crack-shot. He can make it rain for the promise-land. Friesz is a quick guard that plays and moves smartly. I am expecting him to improve this offseason and come into next season ready to tear it up. Keep your eyes open for Flasher and Friesz
Jeremiah Sem Jeremiah Sem 6'3" | SG Fargo North | 2024 State #212 Nation ND |6-3 G| Fargo North/ECI – He shot 40% from 3-point land as a freshman in the EDC. That alone is astounding. Sem is an elite athlete that can create separation to get his shot off whenever he pleases. He has a quick step back and an array of other moves that he uses to keep defenders off-balance. Jeremiah can elevate above defenders to get his shot off. Sem shoots the triple with great balance. He is unbelievable at slashing and getting to the rim, so defenders are not able to close out hard on him. Sem has been opening eyes all spring/summer in the AAU game. He also looked good at the MBCA Showcase these last couple of days. If you have not watched Sem play yet, you are missing out.
Preston Lemar Preston Lemar 6'2" | SG Bismarck | 2024 State ND (2024) |6-2 G| Bismarck/ND Attack – Lemar is a quality athlete with good length. His motor never stops and he never seems to slow down. Preston has been shooting it will this summer when playing with the Demons in summer hoops. He has the potential to be one of the top shooters for BHS outside of Eaglestaff. His jumper going to the left has looked great. He can be a lethal catch-and-shoot player from the 3-point arc.
Ryan Larson Ryan Larson 6'3" | SG Jamestown | 2024 State ND (2024) |6-3 G| Jamestown/Pentagon Schoolers – He is looking good and producing for the Schoolers in AAU ball. Larson has been consistently shooting well from long-range. Larson is a long guard and he is athletic. Being a bigger guard he can shoot over smaller defenders. Larson has a high-release point on his shot. This also helps him get his shot off. Expect him to have a nice year shooting for the Blue Jays in the upcoming year.
Tyson Wick Tyson Wick 6'2" | PG Hazen | 2024 State ND |6-1 G| Hazen – He had a solid freshman season for the Bison. He works hard to get open for his shots. Wick has good hands and feet. His jump shot never seems to be rushed. Wick has a good head on his shoulders and knows how to make the right play. He shoots it soft and confident. Look for Tyson to have a breakout season next year.
