13U Top Scoring Guard Performances
Conner Morguson | 6’0” | Ky Future Elite 2028 | Powell County (Kentucky)
Morguson showcased his full repertoire of assets this weekend. He can put the ball on the deck and make the teardrop floater. His perimeter skill set is definitely the strength of his game. He can knock them down off the catch or off the dribble. Morguson also displayed the ability to consistently post up a smaller defender and use his elite footwork to maneuver for an easy lay-in. There is a lot to like about Morguson’s game.
Kristian Oliver | 5’6” | Tennessee Travelers 2028 | Hardin Valley Middle (Tennessee)
Oliver is as steady as they come. He routinely makes the right play and seems to always be in the right spot on the court. He has a great feel for the game when the ball is in his hands. Oliver was invaluable in leading his team to a Silver Bracket Championship.
Jhanyae Johnson | 4’9” | Dixon Stars Basketball Club 2028 | Urbana Middle School
Johnson plays to his size which gives him a sneaky advantage anywhere on the court. He isn’t shy about bombing in 3s but found success driving to the paint too. He is a steady guard that doesn’t over dribble and isn’t a ball-stopper. Johnson should have no problem averaging in double-digits for Dixon Stars. If he can get hot, expect him to have a few games where he puts up 20+.
Sayge Wallace | Full Package 2028
Wallace is a drive-first guard that uses ball fakes to manipulate the defenders. Although he is comfortable shooting from deep, he can penetrate the paint and slither around the defense better than most. Full Package relies on Wallace to be the primary playmaker and he showed that he can make all the plays.
Ty’Eir Petty | 5’7” | Team Teague Johnson 2028 | Eastwood (Indiana)
Mr. Beat-Your-Press-Break, Petty can dissect all your defensive schemes. He pushes the ball downhill and makes athletic and crafty plays around the rim. The defense will believe they can guard him up tight but Petty uses his elusiveness to get separation and then drop in the floater. Once the defense starts to back up on their heels, he has a quick pull-up jump shot that is very effective.
Chase Smith | 5’8” | Royalty Hoops Etc 2028 | Kingsley Jr (Illinois)
Smith was another multifaceted guard for Royalty Hoops. We see this type of player a lot… Skilled with tons of potential that is continuing to find ways to make an impact on every game. If Smith can evolve into a knockdown shooter and a serviceable playmaker, look for Royalty Hoops to start winning pools and advancing to the Championship Brackets.
Amileo Norvell | Team Flyght Ohio 2028 (Ohio)
