This past weekend I attended the Brawl for the Ball which is a part of the Prep Hoops Circuit.
I focused my attention to the local players and here are more of the 17U standouts:
Sean White SG 6’0 2023 Mesquite (Taylor Made Elite 17U)
Sean showed a good touch from the 3 and the toughness to be a willing defender. During one stretch he hit buckets on four consecutive trips down the court.
Ibrahim Souare Ibrahim Souare 6'10" | PF Dream City Christian International | 2024 State AZ Dream City Christian (AZ Unity 16U EYBL)
The athletic big man showed his versatility this weekend by being at the top of Unity defense quite often. He ran the floor exceptionally well and showed a good motor as a rebounder.
Iyon Brown Iyon Brown 6'5" | PF North | 2023 State AZ North (AZ Firestorm 17U) (Featured Image)
A strong wing forward is new on the scene and impressed with his speed and power. He had a sequence during one game where he went coast to coast three consecutive trips up court.
Erenzo Scroggins Erenzo Scroggins 6'4" | SF AZ Compass Prep Black | 2023 State AZ AZ Compass Prep (Team RHJ 17U)
It seemed like EJ was a highlight every other trip down court. His combination of speed and strength were hard to stop especially in the open court. He also showed his potential as a passer when his teammates were open.
Ethan Faas Ethan Faas 6'5" | PF Arcadia | 2023 State AZ Arcadia (AZ Firestorm 17U)
The lefty showed a nice face up game. While he is normally about the power game, he also showed that he has been expanding his range by hitting some deep 3’s off the catch. He even showed the confidence to get the rebound and initiate the offense when needed.
Cameron Holmes Cameron Holmes 6'5" | SF Millennium | 2026 State AZ Millennium (AZ Unity 16U EYBL)
Cam continues to make a name for himself and he has yet to play a high school game. He showed that he’s becoming more explosive when attacking the rim and contributing on the rebounding end.
