We take a look at the showcase held in Indy this month at the Crossroads Invitational where some of the most highly touted players showed up and showed out. With some familiar faces there, we want to highlight the ones that put people on notice with their efficient shooting and tenacity style of play.
2026- Williams has a very high IQ and he plays the game the right way. Boden scores well at the rim and uses his jumper efficiently as well. William is a playmaker on the offense and the defensive side. He seems to always be making the winning plays for his team. Boden attended the camp and really showed he could guard the basketball against some of the most talented players in the world.
2025- Jyson really showed he could score wherever he wanted to on the court. He’s always been a crafty finisher but what’s best impressive is his ability to finish through contact this summer. He created shots off the dribble for himself allowing him to get just enough space to shoot over the defense. Most players scoring aren’t always efficient but Kim he went 6/13 from the 3 shooting (46%) and shot 15/27 from the field shooting (56%). Jyson rebounded well as a big guard against everyone you could think of and defended well. Don’t expect him to be quiet because when he’s on that court he’s as vocal as they come defensively. Kim captured a lot of attention from scouts quickly putting them on notice.
2025- Deke shot the ball well going 14/28 overall at the camp shooting (50%) from the field. With his size and frame, he cleaned the glass extremely well limiting the opponents to one-shot attempts on most trips. Zone or man-to-man defense he uses his length on the defensive side to get deflections and steals in the passing lane. Thompson played excellent on-ball defense using his wingspan to contest most of the jumpers.
– Kobe has raised his stock this summer and has been nothing short of impressive. Freeman shot 58% from the field with a mixture of his pull-ups, floaters, and finishes amongst the trees. Kobe kept his teammates involved averaging 5 assists per game and in a showcase like this where most players keep the ball for themselves that is almost unheard of. He made plays on both ends of the floor, has great patience as a point guard, scored in a variety of different ways, and took pride on the defensive end.
