Although it’s already been a week and a half since the Oregon Top 250 Expo, our coverage of the event here on Prep Hoops is not done yet. For the rest of this week, we will take a look at each individual roster, breaking down this huge crop of talent from around the Pacific Northwest, player-by-player.
Here’s a look at Team Eleven:
At 6-foot-5, Stassens was a notable presence on the boards for Team Eleven, using his length to outreach other players inside. Additionally, the Summit senior knocked down quite few catch-and-shoot threes throughout the day, proving himself as a legitimate threat from outside.
Manigo possesses good size for a guard at 6-foot-2, and his ball-handling was smooth and solid at the expo. Furthermore, the junior was one of the most engaged perimeter defenders on his team.
Jordan Smisek (2023 Willamette)
Smisek plays much larger than his listed 6-foot-2 as an effective paint protector and a high-motor guy defensively. The senior also rebounds well for his size and can guard multiple positions, making him an impact player on that defensive end.
(2025 Pleasant Hill)
For a sophomore, Inglish possesses a strong physique and good size at 6-foot-2. With two years left to grow as a player, Inglish can already get to the rim and finish tough shots inside effectively.
Already featured on our “Top Freshman” list, Baker is a very complete player for his age, clearly ahead of the curve in terms of both scoring ability and physicality. Although the shots weren’t falling at the normal rate, Baker still impressed with his ball-handling and offensive creativity.
At 6-foot-4, Rolle was a consistent offensive contributor at the expo, converting buckets from both three-point range and inside the arc to display his versatility as a scorer. In addition, the Westview senior worked hard on the glass throughout the day.
(2024 Oregon City)
Westermeyer is an intriguing prospect due to his ability to guard multiple positions and handle the rock at 6-foot-6. Although it wasn’t the junior’s best day scoring the ball, he was still a presence inside on the boards.
At 6-foot-7, Wright is a terrific jump-shooter, with a very repeatable shot motion that can find the net from practically any range. In the mid-post, Wright’s turn-and-face game is effective, and his length as a makes him quite an intriguing prospect.
As one of the most impressive offensive players of the day, White was already featured on our “All-Event Team” due to his ability to score flurries of points. With elite quickness and straight-line speed, the junior gets to the basket at will and can also get hot off-the-dribble from outside, making him quite the tall task for opposing defenses.
While Pippa-White wasn’t a complete offensive juggernaut like he can be at times, it was still clear why he is such a highly-touted prospect at the event. The senior point-guard is an elite facilitator with obvious basketball intelligence and standout athleticism. At the expo, Pippa-White’s jumper was falling from outside.
