Top Performers: Wheaton Academy vs Bartlett
In this article:
What a great game on night one of the high school basketball season as Wheaton Academy and Bartlett played a very evenly matched game that saw some big performances and emerging prospects! Wheaton Academy won on their home court in the end 74-67. Here are the Top Performers: Wheaton Academy vs Bartlett!
Wandy Munoz (Wheaton Academy – 2024)
We had heard some buzz about Munoz and wanted to see what he was all about on opening night. The 5’10” point guard has a strong and compact build. Very shifty ball handler that displays good court vision, passing, and leadership on the floor. Effective finding teammates in the drive and kick along with dishing inside. As a scorer he uses his burst off the bounce to get to the rack, pushes with speed in the open floor, and can hit an open shot nailing one triple in this game. Scrappy on ball defender that was always putting pressure on the opposing lead guard. He had 19 points.

Moncau is a sleeper that we have been fans of for a while. The 6’7” combo forward is a lefty that can really shoot it from three as shown on a jab step into a wing three. Also active on the offensive glass for put backs and can deck it a little too on sweeping layups. Missed a few bunnies. Has some potential defensively. Went for 10 points.
(Wheaton Academy – 2025)
Smith lit up the Prep Hoops Top 250 in the fall and has carried that momentum into the season. The 6’3” shooting guard is such a creative scorer off the bounce. Won off the dribble over and over again with straight line takes and weaving his way through the defense. Transition finishes at the rim on coast to coast drives were regular plays in this one for Smith. Slicked up the defense along with connecting on a pair of threes for 25 points.
Griffin Schlenbecker (Wheaton Academy – 2026)
Thin and rangy two guard that has a frame to fill out. Can make an open shot and was good in transition netting 9 points.
(Wheaton Academy – 2027)
The 6’7” Schroeder might have the most long term potential of anyone on the court. In the freshman’s debut he had 7 points on a rim run, right handed hook, and a step back three from the corner late to give his team some breathing room. Like how he competed against a quality big man and rebounded well in his area. A lot of tools to like here!
Nate Scearce (Bartlett – 2024)
What a show Scearce put on. Without question will see his name in our next 2024 update after the 25 point outing he had in this one. The 6’4” small forward isn’t the most explosive athlete, but was so skilled. I loved how he was always moving, cutting, and made shots off both. Scored from all three levels in this game including five triples from beyond the arc. Kid is a bucket!
Dimitre Petrasiunas (Bartlett – 2025)
Inside this 6’5” power forward got it going as the game went on. Crafty left handed post that has good strength. Nice hook shot, finished through contact, got on the glass, and knew how to use body positioning down low to score. Very skilled post that went for 16 points.
Joey Cwik (Bartlett – 2027)
Cwik was another freshman making his debut. He didn’t look rattled at all! The 6’1” 2027 shooting guard made some big shots throughout the night including crisp pull up twos and a corner three. One to watch down the line!
