The second annual April Bash kicks off this weekend. Presented by Chosen Few, the event features teams from around the Southwest and the West Coast. The event is the unofficial kick-off to the Spring Live period, as it takes place the week before college coaches are eligible to come out and lay eyes on players. The tournament-style event features both boys’ and girls’ teams ranging from 8U – 17U. This exposure event will feature heavy media coverage, including PrepHoops PrephoopsNext, and highlight company Balldawgs. The event had several talented players including some big time future prospects. The class of 2028 featured some promising PG play. Here’s a look at some of the top 2028 Floor Generals from the event.
Meija was one of the best overall players I saw this weekend. The guard combined positional size, with good skill and a solid IQ on both sides of the ball. He was able to jump passing lanes to get steals, showing off his athleticism, seperating from defenders for easy layups at the other end. Has an advanced handle, which fits pefectly with his long armed frame.
Ross is a heady PG with some wiggle. He showed that he can shoot the ball acurately from behind the high school three point line already. More than a catch and shoot guy, the jitterbug PG showed that he can bang home a few off the bounce as well.
Williams was a lot of fun to watch. The crafty PG showed an advanced wiggle, freezing defenders time after time with hesitation moves. He played with good mental toughness, seemingly looking to take and make plays the tighter the game got. He’s a confident shooter that hit a three out past pro range in the game I saw.
Schilder put together a nice game for himself when I was watching. He scored in a variety of ways, getting out ahead of the pack for transition buckets as well as knocking down some jumpers. He has good shooting fundamentals, displaying a strong and consistent follow thru on his shot.
I didn’t see a ton of Johnson, however I saw enough to know that I liked him. He’s a tough hard nosed driver, that was able to finish his share of plays around the basket. The 5’7 wing showed an explosive first step, getting by his defender en route to attacking the rim.
Carter served notice this weekend, that he’s a player to keep an eye on. An efficent bucket getter he was able to get to the rack seemingly at will. I only saw one full game of his, however after almost everyone of his games, the scorekeeper was reminding me to take a picture of him as the high scorer of the game. This was even true in the game I watched as he finished with a quiet 30. The 5’7 guard is a smooth combo with stockrising potential.
I can promise you this in a few years Townsend will be one of the most beloved HS players in the city. The two way PG is an ubber competitive player that impacts the game on both ends. He is a pesky on ball defender with quick hands and a good base. Offensively he’s a pass first PG that makes others around him better. He was one of the best overall passers I saw at the event, as he has the ability to hit teammates with on time and on target passes consistently.
There’s a saying in basketball, you are what you repeatedly do. I saw Guzman play several times this weekend, and he consistently annoyed his opponents with his defensive effort. He was one of the better on ball defenders, I saw showing the ability to move laterally and a willingness to invade the space of the offensive player.
