The spring AAU season is in full swing as teams are gearing up for the upcoming live period. The Hoop Group April Showdown was filled with talent as players made a big impact throughout the day. Here are the Hoop Group April Showdown standouts.
, 6’3 PG Montgomery 2026
Lin made plays all day for the Shoreshots Rio UAA 15’s as he was dynamic with the ball in his hands. The 6’3 guard was able to blow by his defender off the bounce and finished nicely around the basket. Lin was never rattled by on-ball pressure as he consistently got to his spot on the floor and rose up nicely on his jumper. He showed the ability to play off the ball as well and was able to get deflections on the defensive end. Lin is a talented point guard prospect whose stock is on the verge of taking off over the next couple of months.
, 6’5 CG 2024
Bicic had a monster day for the Shoreshots HGSL team as he made his mark felt throughout the day. The 6’5 guard was comfortable pushing the ball on the break and fired passes to open teammates. Bicic shot the ball with confidence from behind the arc and finished strong around the basket. He skied for rebounds on both ends of the floor and used his length to create problems on the defensive end. Bicic is doing a postgrad season in 2023-24, which he will announce sometime in the near future where his versatility should be on full display.
, 6’5 W Don Bosco Prep 2025
Loughlin had a strong day as he put his complete offensive game on display. The 6’5 wing has a smooth release on his jumper and was comfortable shooting the basketball multiple feet behind the three-point line. Loughlin did more than just shoot as he also put the ball on the floor and finished at the rim. He moved well without the ball in his hands and showed the ability to run the offense at times. Loughlin’s ability to knock down jumpers from behind the arc is something that will help his stock in a big way this spring.
, 6’2 PG St. Thomas Aquinas 2024
Jones was electric with the ball in his hands as he made plays all over the court. The 6’2 guard used his lighting quick first step to blow by his defender off the bounce and elevated for dunks. Jones was unafraid of drawing contact on his way to basket and was able to knock down jumpers off the bounce with ease. He ripped down rebounds to start the break and got back on defense to prevent open layups. Jones is a dynamic floor general who will be lighting up the scoreboards during the spring and summer.
, 5’10 PG Holmdel 2024
Seeloch had a solid day as he showed his ability to run the offense smoothly. The 5’10 guard was not rattled by on-ball pressure and was able to get to the rim and finish. Seeloch got his teammates involved in the half court and rarely forced any shots in the half court. He moved well without the ball in his hands and was able to secure offensive rebounds for his team. Seeloch’s ability to run the offense is something that will help his game in a big way over the next couple of months.
