UA Select Super 16 Recap

The Cape Girardeau Sports Plex is a great venue to host tournaments. Plenty of parking and right of the I55 ramp. It has six courts under one roof with plenty of seating to contain the crowds. It has a restaurant with meals, including salads, so you never have to leave. Keep this place in mind when looking for future events.

Notes from 17U:

Tyreion Jackson (6-0 2017 PG Hammond Morton HS; East Chicago, IN) SYF Players (IN): Here is an unsigned player that needs to be picked up by a JUCO immediately. The fast, smooth and shifty guard can get to the rim and finish with ease. He has a nice stroke on his shot. He is a very smart defender that crashes the boards. An explosive player that lead his team all weekend.

Tyon Grant (6-5 2018 SG F.L. Schlagle HS; Kansas City, KS) Team KC (KS): He is a great one-on-one defender that contest shots. He has good fluid moves that allow him to score easily around the paint The hardest part of going against him is trying to stop him on the break. He does the most damage in the open court.

Daniel Portell (5-11 2018 G Festus HS; Festus, MO) 34 Hoops (MO): Really good ball handler that gets to the basket and can finish. He is a good shooter and defender. His best quality is his leadership. He was seen over the weekend coaching while on the court and cheering teammates from the bench.

Gavin Harris (6-2 2018 PG Jackson HS; Jackson, MO) SEMO Storm (MO): A smart player that runs and controls his team. He is a very good passer. He knocked down three’s when left open and punished other teams from the free-throw line. He plays with a bit of attitude and confidence that can seem unwarranted but he backs it up with his play.

Pete Lake (6-7 2018 G/F Jackson HS; Jackson, MO) SEMO Storm (MO): He has a very good looking outside shot. It looked as if he was not as athletic as the other players early on but then he started showing signs of explosion. His handles were very good and he can play well above the rim. Low majors need to take a look at the hidden gem in Missouri as he already sports a 25 ACT.

Logan Windeler (6-10 2018 F Detroit, MI) Example Sports (IL): The long lanky forward had a nice touch on his shot. He knocked down three’s from the corner, wing and top of the key. His handles were good enough to get him to the rack. He showed that he can exploded and throw some monster slams down. He holds a few low major offers right now and he should have plenty more coming in.

Jaylan Wilson (6-0 2018 G Bay HS; Bay St. Louis, MS) Team Elite Heat (MS): The silent leader. He plays behind the scenes and does all the small things right with his hustle. He was very consistent over the weekend. He has a nice shot. The quarterback has some really nice open court moves and is nice on the break.
