Prep Hoops Missouri concludes its team evaluations from the recent Top 250 Expo with a look at the members from Team No. 10.
(Hickman): The 6’2″ 2024 point guard was very good throughout the event with his smooth offensive game and ability to make his teammates better. He was one of the best I saw at breaking down defenders off the dribble and getting to his spots, which ended up in layups and pull up jumpers. He did an excellent job of setting up his teammates for easy looks. Whether he was getting buckets or not, he could impact the game in a variety of ways.
(Marquette): A 6’0″ 2026 point guard who displayed a calm and cool demeanor the the court. He was very confident in his skill set and he showed a little swag. His handles were very smooth and he did a nice job of setting up defenders before making his move., whether it was a downhill drive or a step-back 3-pointer. He also delivered some very nifty passes on the move.
(Ladue): A 6’2″ 2025 guard who was very aggressive and in constant motion, whether he was driving to the basket or moving without the basketball. His overall energy and effort were excellent at both ends. When he wasn’t attacking the basket, he was also hitting open 3-pointers.
(Lutheran North): A 5’9″ 2023 guard who has a solid build who plays a very aggressive game that makes up for his lack of height. Despite being only 5’9″ he does a lot of damage in the paint where he could get buckets on drives and offensive rebounds. He is also a lock-down defender with his quickness and ball-hawking ability.
(St. James): A 6’2″ 2023 guard who was very active and always seemed to be around the ball. He is a very nice passer who can also handle the ball and make plays. He is also a good offensive rebounder who finds the openings in the lane to get putbacks. He is a sound all-purpose player.
(STEAM Academy at McCluer South-Berkeley): A 5’10” 2025 point guard who has excellent quickness and good feel for the game. He used his speed to penetrate well and he could also hit the open 3-pointer. He also had good reactions of defense with his ability to play the passing lanes.
(St. Dominic): A 6’9″ 2024 forward who was much more comfortable facing the basket on offense. He could step out and shoot the 3-pointer off the catch when he was open with confidence. He has good length and mobility and he is still developing as a player.
(East Carter): A 6’2″ 2023 guard who was a high energy player. He hustled well for loose balls and he found his way to the offensive boards for putbacks. He was able to maneuver well inside and get buckets in the lane. I also liked how he moved without the basketball.
(Union): A 5’10” 2026 guard who played off the ball for most of the event and he did a good job of running in transition to the open spot to shoot the 3-pointer. When he got to the basket, he made good use of the pump fake inside to score a bucket.
(Windsor): A 6’0″ 2025 guard who was aggressive and attacking the basket with confidence. When he go the ball in his dominant right hand, he was good at turning the corner and getting downhill.
