Nebraska United took home the gold division championship crown, but individually here is the all-tourney team for the 2027 class.
Cooper Zachary (5’8/CG/Team Teague)
Cooper was one of the most dynamic guards in the entire tourney. He is a combo guard who can orchestrate the offense but is at his best when looking to put the ball in the hole. His burst in the open court helps him get easy transition opportunities. He is highly skilled at getting his shot off in tight spaces and has a unique ability to make shots from different angles once he gets below the arc. He is a ten-eye player, as all five defenders must always be conscious of him. He was sensational throughout the tourney.
Isaiah Carpenter (6’4/F/Clayway Elite)
Isaiah is a versatile guard who can play on or off the ball and is productive in both scenarios. His talent and potential were on full display throughout the weekend, even though he did not get much burn early as his team was steamrolling opponents. I loved his efficiency and productivity, as he is hard to guard as he has a true perimeter game and post-up game. He showed up big as his team got into bracket play, and he showed the tools in his toolkit. He shot the ball well from behind the arc, created and scored off the bounce, manufactured points off the offensive glass, and was sensational scoring in transition. He impacted the game in so many different ways and saw his stock rise with his performances during the latter part of the tourney.
Kellen Murphy (5’11/SG/Nebraska United)
Kellen is an efficient scorer from all three levels and has a beautiful jump shot with deep range. You can say he is cash money as he can fill it up from deep. He is also a shifty guard off the bounce with a quick first step who plays at different speeds. Kellen is a good passer and playmaker who moves the ball well and plays within the flow of the offense. Yet he has the ability to break down opponents and go get a bucket whenever it is needed. He scores in a variety of ways as he has pull-ups, side-steps, and step-backs all in his bag, which he was in throughout the entire tourney. He shoots with confidence, and his ability to score helped his squad get to the championship game and win it all.
Ty Schlagel (6’5/SF/PJ Hoops)
Ty was very consistent in his play throughout the weekend. He is a skilled playmaker and a gifted scorer. He is loaded with versatile tools, as he can score from all levels, and his overall play impacts the stat sheet in multiple ways. His ability to shoot the trey ball keeps defenses honest. As good of a scorer, as he is, he does a tremendous job making plays for others. He is a highly skilled athlete with a high IQ that plays with a competitive edge. I have already put ink on Ty from this tourney, so you can go back and read more of what I think about his game.
Jordan Castor (5’9/PG/Nebraska United)
Jordan is a talented player with a high IG, and his team operates at its best when the offense is running through him. He does a good job balancing, facilitating, and scoring, and at times, he has to focus on one a little more than the other. When he was scoring, he showed his natural ability to create his shot from anywhere on the floor. He was tough off the bounce, and it was very difficult for defenders to keep him out of the paint. Whether he was getting in the paint and finishing with runners or floaters or collapsing the defense and spraying to shooters, he stayed making plays in the heart of the defense. His skill set was on display, but his creativity off the bounce kept spectators holding their breath every time he had the rock in his hands. He is a solid PG that will be vital to his high school team’s success.
