The NYBA #PrimeTime Showcase was nothing short of amazing. Talent was wall to wall, and here are some of the standouts that were in action…
TiYeon Wilson (5’10/PG/’25/B2B Society)
One thing about TiYeon is that he has no problem scoring or making plays. He is very active on the offensive end of the floor and is intentional with what he is looking to do when the ball is in his hands. He is not into massaging the ball but prefers to make one move and attack the cup. He is a slasher and a playmaker that carries a huge part of the scoring load for his squad. He thrives in transition but can get his shot at any point in any possession, whether in the half-court or out in transition. Despite his 5’10 listed height, he finishes well in the paint and at the rim amongst the trees.
Kevin Wiggins (6’4/SF/’25/NYBA Stars Elite)
Kevin’s length helps in his play on both ends of the floor, particularly on the offensive end, where he looks to score in the paint and do so by rising above the defender and shooting over their contest. He is a young athletic talent who can garner some attention from the next level if he can continue to make strides. Kevin is a creative finisher and performed really well in transition. He showed his worth with his versatility as well as with his play on the defensive end of the floor.
Daniel Patton (6’5/G|F/’26/TN No Fear)
Daniel showed a lot of versatility throughout the weekend on both ends of the floor. He showed the tools in the toolbox as he was able to play with the rock in his and score off the bounce. He showed the ability to step out and knock down the perimeter jumper. He makes plays all over the floor on both ends and impacts the game by running the floor in transition. He has good positional size and is quick off the floor, which helped with his ability to be a rim protector. He is a freshman that showed a lot of promise and is a player we will keep our eyes on.

JaRohn showed a lot of potential as a freshman. He has good positional size and a lot of athleticism to go along with his size. He plays above the rim as he is quick off his feet when looking to score, rebound, and contest shots. He showed that he can knock down the trey ball, which is another part of his game that makes him so intriguing. There is still some offensive development needed with JaRohn but makes no mistake about it; the production is there.
Jayden Givens (6’0/PF/’25/Wildcat Elite)
Jayden is a 6’0 listed PF that brought a lot of energy and effort to the floor. He impacts the game across the stat sheet, and his energy and play are contagious. He was highly productive out in transition as he ran the floor hard and often finished at the rim. He plays tough, rebounds well, and is a willing defender in the paint and out in space. He even showed that he could step out and knock down the trey ball. He showed that he can score the rock and he can score it in bunches. He benefits from a fast-paced game because that is the style of play he showed to be comfortable playing.
Kobey Jones (6’1/PG/’25/Clarksville Crossovers )
This tourney was the second event I have seen KJ in within the last month. He has been impressive in both outings. His team is in the hands of a reliable floor general when he is on the floor, and the ball is in his hands. He is capable of getting his team in their sets, and he has a good balance between facilitating and scoring. One thing about his play that has stood out over the two events is his consistent play and production. He has good vision and ball-handling skills, along with a quick burst off the bounce that makes him a match-up problem on the perimeter.
