The Prep Hoops Expo was a coming out party for some players. In this article we are checking out some players that we believe could be in line for a breakout high school season in Arizona High School Basketball.
Ryan Calcaterra Ryan Calcaterra 6'2" | PG Thunderbird | 2024 State AZ Thunderbird
The crafty guard played at a nice pace on Saturday and showed a very good shooting touch. He also showed good floor instincts. He should have a very good season for Thunderbird.
Noah Sowunmi Noah Sowunmi 6'4" | SG Paradise Valley | 2024 State AZ Paradise Valley
This wing had a very nice showing and he has been bubbling under the radar for some time. I believe with the coaching change Noah is due to have an increased role for the Trojans. Don’t be surprised if he’s among the leading scorers in the AIA this upcoming season.
Jake Centner Jake Centner 6'5" | SF Flagstaff | 2024 State AZ Flagstaff (Featured Image)
The NoAZ resident was easily one of the better shooters at the event if not the best. Even his misses looked good. If this was any indication of his potential Jake will most certainly increase his numbers from last season.
Isaiah Berg Isaiah Berg 6'7" | PF Mica Mountain | 2024 State AZ Mica Mountain
This was my first time seeing Isaiah and I became a fan. He not only played with energy on offense but he matched it on the defensive end. While he was attacking the rim on the offensive end he contested everything near the rim. Should have a big season for the Thunderbolts.
TJ Harris TJ Harris 5'11" | PG Paradise Honors | 2026 State AZ Paradise Honors
This youngster played well above his age during his games. By the look of TJ he will be the next big standout at Paradise Honors. He does a little bit of everything on the court with big confidence. I will not be surprised if he leads PHHS in a few categories as a freshman.
Braden Moore Braden Moore 6'1" | PG Phhoenix Prep | 2025 State AZ Yuma Catholic
If his performance during the EXPO was any indication, Braden should be in for a very good season. A strong three level scorer he was a handful on Saturday and will be hard for defenders during the season.
