Minneapolis, Minnesota – June 2nd – June 4th, programs across the great state of Minnesota and surrounding states faced off at Shakopee High School, and competed for championship honors!
Which team would get bragging rights for the year? Each game had highlight worthy plays, and players looking to prove their team was worthy of a Championship Title. Although there can only be one champion, there was no shortage of intensity and talent throughout the entire weekend in each division.
Below, I highlighted the “Stock Risers” that I was able to watch at the NHR State Tournament.
Jayden Anunda – Minnesota Select
Anunda had a two way impact over the weekend for Minnesota Select. He provided a balanced attack by hitting shots off the catch and ripping to the paint and finishing at the rim. His high level athleticism allows him to not only score above defenders but dunk the ball with ease. Anunda is a versatile defender as well and able to guard the other team’s best player regardless of position.
Jake Lis- Crossfire
Jack Lis is a jack of all trades that provided a balanced attack and was a reliable source of scoring for Minnesota Crossfire. The three level scorer played with great pace on and off the ball. He was a knockdown shooter off the catch and reliable facilitator when putting the ball on the ground. Most impressive was his mid range pull up off the dribble.
Ty Schlegel – PJ Hoops
Schlegel was a mismatch nightmare at the wing position. He scored the ball in various ways and had to be accounted for each time down the floor. He has a knack for getting downhill and rising up in the mid range area. He was most impressive when making plays out of the mid-post.
Kyle Hart – Illinois Warriors Elite
Illinois Warriors benefited greatly when Hart was on the floor at NHR State. The point forward has next level decision making with the ball in his hands. When snatching boards he is capable of taking it coast to coast. Most impressive was his defensive versatility, guarding posts and guards with ease.
