Seven more prospects on the Wisconsin side who impressed during the 2023 Border Battle!
Dallas has the look of one of the more versatile players in the 2024 class. At around 6’5 he has good size with a solid frame allowing him to defend on the block while also being able to move his feet on the perimeter. With that he was able to guard just about anywhere on the floor against Concordia Academy. Spent time bringing the ball up as more of a point-forward, with the ability to make the simple pass to his wings, or drive and kick to open shooters. Whenever he got a look around the basket Dallas rarely missed, and he also showed touch on his jumper to stretch the floor out and force defenders to guard him on the perimeter. Just went about his business doing whatever was needed of him to win, finishing with an impressive 20 points, 13 rebounds, and 8 assists in the win.
One of the most consistently productive guards in the state over the past couple years has been. The senior guard is lighting quick and I think a bit more explosive attacking the basket than people give him credit for. His jumper and quickness getting to his spots on the floor really set him apart from the pack. Concordia Academy had a difficult time containing him off the dribble as he got into his mid-range shot off the dribble, while also constantly moved off the ball resulting in some catch-and-shoot threes. Jordan does all of this while constantly scanning the floor to keep his options open, knowing where an open teammate is at all times. Put up 21 points and 7 assists in a win for the host school.
It may not have been the prettiest 22 points, but you can’t deny the production that TJ had against Minneapolis North. At 6’5 he was running the point a lot for his team, and although just a sophomore he has a mature frame that allowed him to get into the paint just about any time he wanted to. Once there the defense was left with no choice but to foul as he’s such a gifted finisher. TJ did struggle at the line, but he still has a few years to improve on those percentages. Stuttley impressed with his ability to handle and calmly make decisions under heavy pressure at 6’5, as well as creating high percentage scoring opportunities.
Evan has been one of the most exciting players to watch in Wisconsin this season, as he’s a high flyer who looks to throw it down any time he gets a lane to the basket. Made some really nice cuts off the ball leading to easy finishes, including a backdoor cut into a two hand slam at the end of the first half to send his team into the break with momentum. Evan has the speed to attack off the dribble, but can also stop on a dime if his man commits to the drive too much and hit a pull-up jumper. Put up some massive numbers as a sophomore at Black River Falls, and now showing he can still score at a high level within the offense for a talented Onalaska program.
had an off shooting night when I saw him in La Crosse the weekend prior, but on Saturday he found his stride again and really opened things up in the first half for Onalaska. I remember him draining a couple of early threes to get things going for his team. He has a high arching shot and showcased range well beyond the arc on his way to 5-7 shooting from deep for his 15 points. Offers good positional size on the wing as well at 6’5.
The freshman made some nice plays for Aquinas on Saturday. He already stands at 6’2 with a solid frame, and looks like he has the potential to play either guard spot moving forward. Handled the ball well throughout the game, and although he was unselfish with the ball, he wasn’t afraid to shoot when the opportunity arose. Showcased touch beyond the arc with a pair of 3’s while also being able to use his size to score in the paint. Finished with 13 points against a very good Lake City team.
Jaren was keeping Regis in it until the very end in what ended up being a back-and-forth matchup with Lyle-Pacelli. Used his quickness off the dribble to get into dangerous spots on the floor, particularly in the paint where he found success finishing or getting to the free throw line. With the defense collapsing in on him he was able to dish it out to open teammates, picking up a handful of assists in the process. Finished the game with a team high 15 points for Regis.
