Prep Hoops NEXT Havoc In The Heartland was a balanced event with teams from Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, Ohio, Georgia, and Kentucky. Havoc In The Heartland was hosted on the campus of Triton Central in Fairland, Indiana.
13U Top Shooters
Chase Sennett | 5’8” | Royalty Hoops Etc 2028 | Parkside Jr. High (Illinois)
Sennett is one of those players that the ball finds him. Coaches love players that have a knack for being in the right place at the right time and Sennett is definitely one of those types of players. Which caught our scout’s eyes and earned a spot on the All-Tournament Team as an Honorable Mention. Sennett is a bonafide scorer. Point blank period. Whether the ball is in his hands or he is slashing through the paint, Sennett is a true finisher. He showed the ability to stay hot and cook up a scoring run all by himself. Because he is always around the ball, he seems to always be in rhythm with the flow of the game. He is scoring minded that uses his constant energy, movement, and activity to set up scoring opportunities.
Jaxen Bennett | 5’7” | WE ACADEMY NATIONAL 2026 | Carmel Middle School (Indiana)
Another Honorable Mention member, Bennett was an all-around scorer this weekend but particularly special from beyond the arc. He showcased he can be a 3-level scorer. His ability to create space off the bounce and then ease up for the soft touch around the paint was impeccable. The guard play for WE ACADEMY NATIONAL was a thing of beauty all weekend.
Parker Sanders | 5’8” | Ky Future Elite 2028 | Royal Springs (Kentucky)
Sanders is a smooth operator with the ball in his hands. He showcased scoring abilities at all three levels but found most of his success along the perimeter. Sanders has the “shooter’s mentality” as soon as he walks on the court. He had opposing coaches and fans grit their teeth when he got an open look at the basket because they assumed it would be all net. Sanders had a great weekend all around.
Chase Ellis | Full Package 2028
Ellis is a southpaw with a smooth shot rotation. He plays with pace and looks for shots with his hands ready to fire at any time. You can tell Ellis has been a knockdown shooter for a few years because he has already developed the ability to slither in the paint and work the mid-game angles. Ellis has a soft touch around the rim and is consistent at the free-throw line.
Brennan Johnson | 5’4” | Team Teague 2028 Johnson | Eastwood (Indiana)
Johnson is a quick, elusive guard that seems to always beat his defender with ease. Johnson showcased an array of shots including the runner, floater, and 1-2 dribble pull-up. When he gets a sliver of space, he has an unmatched burst.
