There was some very impressive point guard play in Louisville, Kentucky at the Grit Region Kick Off last weekend. Let’s look at 5 floor leaders that stood out to me at the event.
Michael Abbey Jr. (Air Assault Athletics 2024)
There was a lot to like about what Abbey Jr. brought to the table. He was a smaller guard that utilized his speed and quickness. Abbey Jr. combined that foot speed with good handles, especially with his right hand. He showed the ability to put a defender on his hip on a straight line drive. He could create for himself and his teammates on the dribble drive.
If you’ve read my articles on the Grit Region Kick Off so far, you know how impressed I was with the way this young man played. He was the prototypical floor general for EG10 2025. Horvath was a leader by example, always knowing where his teammates should be and when they should be there. He was calm and collected, playing under control even in the biggest moments.
Jack Meier (INB Elite 2025)
Meier is probably best described as a facilitator. He prodded the defense looking for his teammates on the offensive end. Meier had solid straight line speed that he used to pressure the defense and create for his teammates. His speed also helped him beat the defense down the floor and make plays in transition.
Ben Slagley (D1 Indiana 2025)
Technically I’m not positive that he’s a true point at this moment, but his game had lead guard written all over it. He showed that he could play both over top and through the defense. Slagley showed off some very impressive court vision. He flaunted some excellent accuracy on his passes, especially when he drilled cutters in stride with a bounce pass.
(Team Mack 2025)
This young man could have a big future as a lead guard. He’s a facilitator in both the half court and in transition. Wright was dangerous in the open floor where he seemed to always know the best play for himself and his teammates. His speed and ability to play from baseline to baseline made him a very tough matchup.
