For the second time in as many weekends, Prep Hoops Louisiana brought together some of the upcoming and established talent from around the Boot. The PH Louisiana Top 250 Expo brought talent from the classes of 2023 through 2025 to Baton Rouge to showcase their abilities in defending, shooting, and passing. There were some players who made plays above and beyond the norm that were considered GameChangers on the weekend. In this look back at the PH Louisiana Top 250, we will take a look at some of the players we feel that fit the bill of being GameChangers.

Ferguson was a key figure on one of the best teams on the Prep Hoops Circuit in the LA Broncos. At the PH Louisiana Top 250, he showed that he can be a dominating force with another team. He came out the gates in the first game scoring 8 of his teams’ first 14 by using everything in his arsenal. He finished in transition on two occasions, nailed a three, and hit another short jumper. Ferguson also made defensive plays that aided in the success of his team. His offensive display is advanced for someone entering his sophomore season. His ability to score at all three levels and defend is what made him one of the top GameChangers in Baton Rouge.

Briggs placed as much pressure on the defense as Ferguson did during the day. Briggs was one of the more active defenders on the day as he used his defensive principles to play high level defense. He knew where to position himself between the ball and his man, when to help his teammates, and did this while playing great on the ball defense. On offense he used the dribble to break defenders down and score or used cuts and back doors. The basketball IQ he displayed on both ends of the floor made him one of the GameChangers on the day. He is very good on both ends.
(6’2″ | Port Allen)
McQuillan showed off his shooting prowess in Baton Rouge that helped him win the Most Outstanding Player for Port Allen. His catch-and-shoot ability sets him apart from a lot of shooters in Louisiana. At the PH Louisiana Top 250, McQuillan showed that he was more than a shooter. He was also a willing passer and very good at it. His outside shooting opened up his ability to drive to the rack and find others in scoring positions. McQuillan was deemed a GameChanger because of his ability to drive, shoot, and pass at a high level on the day. He definitely performed on a high level.
(6’1″ | Ponchatoula)
Jackson has a well-rounded offensive game and he displayed it during his time at the Prep Hoops Top 250. He was very good at attacking defenses with an assortment of shots and finishes at the rim. Jackson is very good at the free throw line/mid-range pull-up either off the drive or in transition. He also has a strong upper body which allowed him to finish at the rim through contact on occasion. Jackson proved to be a GameChanger by the variety of things he can do offensively. He can threaten a defense with his variety of shot-making, his ability to pass, and as an offensive rebounder. Jackson is a threat anywhere on the floor and performed that way over the weekend.
(6’1″ | Wossman)
The guard out of northeast Louisiana saw his first action in months due to injuries from a car wreck and needless to say it looked as if he had played all summer. Lewis placed a tone of pressure on the defense by getting to the rim either by driving to the cup or finishing in transition. He is from Wossman so he has embraced their aggressive man-to-man style of defense which helped his team garner some turnovers. Lewis is still working his way back but he was definitely a GameChanger that helped his team in multiple ways on Saturday.
The Prep Hoops Louisiana Top 250 Expo also hadin the building. He has been a GameChanger all summer helping his teams win with his scoring and defensive ability. Green is one of the top recruits in the country in football and basketball. So him being a GameChanger goes without saying. These other players who were recognized may be lesser known; however, they do multiple things that help their teams win. That is exactly what they did during their time at the Top 250.
