Halftime Score- Fargo North 49 Bismarck Legacy 17
Final Score- Fargo North 78 Bismarck Legacy 49
Isaac Cody Isaac Cody 6'3" | SG Fargo North | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-4 G|
14 points, 4 three-pointers. He started the game with a 3-pointer to take the early lead. Isaac made multiple college-range 3-pointers. He also had multiple made 3-pointers in transition. Cody showed a smooth running floater in traffic. I like how quickly he sets his feet before his shot. He can put up points in a hurry.
Carter Zeller Carter Zeller 6'6" | PF Fargo North | 2024 State ND (2024) |6-6 PF|
15 points, 5-6 FT’s. He fights for every rebound. I loved his patience in the post, his shot fakes, and how he sealed deep in the paint. Carter has a soft finishing touch and he is a solid FT-shooter. I like how he absorbs contact and finishes physically. Carter moves very well without the ball, after his man helps he finds the open spot for a shot. Carter was great at putting back offensive rebounds. Nobody from the Sabers could match his strength around the basket.
Jeremiah Sem Jeremiah Sem 6'3" | SG Fargo North | 2024 State #212 Nation ND (2024) |6-3 G|
22 points, 4 three-pointers, 8-8 FT’s. He was sensational from the charity stripe. He was great at shooting triples off the dribble, with a step-back, and off the pass. Sem stood out with his hesitation-move. Jeremiah has amazing hang-time. On defense, he blocked shots and deflected passes. He dropped many dimes when he was attacking the basket, the help side would step up and Sem found the open man. Jeremiah had multiple fullcourt finishes, he is a superior athlete. He can go coast to coast in the blink of an eye. Sem is going to have a special season for the Spartans.
Luke Loberg Luke Loberg 6'4" | SF Fargo North | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-3 F|
10 points, 2 three-pointers. He is a very serious scoring threat. His 3-point shot looked good in the first half. Loberg scored off pull-up jumpers and by spacing the floor and hitting in catch-and-shoot situations. Luke has great footwork and hands.
Nathaniel Kallod Nathaniel Kallod 6'0" | SG Fargo North | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-1 G|
5 points, 1-2 FT’s. He had an impressive steal which led to a physical finish in transition. I liked the way Kallod jumped stopped and gathered himself. From there he used a shot fake to draw a foul and get to the line.
Peder Haugo Peder Haugo 6'3" | PF Fargo North | 2024 State ND (2024) |6-3 F|
He is a physical defender and hard worker. Haugo is a gifted athlete.
Jaxon Kellogg Jaxon Kellogg 6'3" | PG Bismarck Legacy | 2023 State ND (2023) |6-1 G/F|
11 points, 1 three-pointer, 2-4 FT’s. This lefty is an impressive and very strong athlete. He battled all game on the boards and Kellogg snagged many O-boards. On defense, Jaxon had an impressive pass deflection on an in-bounds play. In transition, Kellogg had a huge tomahawk block that sent the ball flying out of bounds. He showcased multiple physical finishes where he kissed the shot off the glass. Jaxon had a nice basket cut bucket. Kellogg was the best player for the Sabers on Saturday.
Kiefer Glenn (2022) |6-2 F|
6 points, 2-4 FT’s. He showed a quality 15-foot jumper. Glenn had an impressive physical spin move that led to a bucket.
Zander Albers Zander Albers 6'5" | PF Bismarck Legacy | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-4 F|
2 points. His basket came from a steal and a fullcourt finish. Despite not shooting well, Albers has a very nice jump shot with excellent elevation. He showed off his athleticism with a blocked shot. Zander is a quick leaper with a great vertical.
Joey Buzalsky Joey Buzalsky 6'0" | PG Bismarck Legacy | 2022 State ND (2022) |6-0 G|
10 points, 1 three-pointer, 5-8 FT’s. He showed a very impressive euro-step finger roll finish in traffic. Joey nailed a 3-pointer to start the second half. He got to the free-throw line a ton. Buzalsky battled all game no matter the score. He also took an impressive charge.
Brayden Weidner (2023) |5-9 G|
3 points, 1 three-pointer. Brayden has a good-looking shot and he drilled a corner 3-ball.
