Lewis had a good run over the summer with BDH Elite, meshing well with the mix of guards and bigs they threw out on the floor. He played incredibly poised as the main ballhandler or off the ball and letting one ofor run the show. His pull-up jumper from deep is one of his go-to moves, but he has a lot of other ways he can impact the game as a 6’2 combo guard. He’s one of those players who has a knack for sparking runs with his scoring, sound playmaking ability, and simply being in the right place at the right time.
At a long and lanky 6-foot-5, Evanson’s frame awards him a lot of clearance on the offensive end. He can scoot into the lane whenever he wants to and takes a lot of contact when driving to the rim. He can rise and score when he gets inside, floating it over defenses with a soft touch. He really came on during last season’s state tournament for King’s Way Christian. He’s a flat out bucket getter and might even grow into the 6’6-6’7 range.
It’s going to be an interesting year for new Curtis Viking. After a breakout junior year with Central Kitsap (22 ppg, 8 rpg, 5 apg), the Swiss Army Knife had a great all-around summer playing with a Team Stuck roster full of Division-1 level teammates. It seemed like a necessary experience after he transferred to Curtis, where he’ll be playing alongside budding star (2024) and sharpshooter (2023). He’ll most likely be slotted into the 3-spot as the Viks look to capture back-to-back 4A state titles, where he has the size to compete on both ends and be the ultimate glue guy for his squad.
After a summer of turnover in the Rainer Beach backcourt that saw multiple transfers over that stretch, Gurske ended up being one of the last guards standing as school started back up. With(23′) and (25′) making the switch to Skyline, along with 26′ swingman moving over to Lincoln, the door is wide open for him to become Beach’s premier ballhandler. Miles is quick with the rock and has excellent ball control. He can skate by defenders and it opens up a lot for him on offense. He’ll do what’s necessary for his squad to win, and that could be shouldering more of a scoring load than originally anticipated. After sitting out most of the summer recovering from injury, he’ll be out to prove his worth.
has one of the biggest upsides from any guard in his class in my opinion. His physical tools are about as good as it gets for a player with his skillset. He’s a beast when driving the lane and can out-muscle plenty of players his size or bigger at the cup. He sits at 6-foot-6 and has wirey strength to back it up. This will be his second season as a Bullpup and it should include a lot of opportunity with 6-foot-7 forward Jayden Stevens (22′) off to Oregon State.
