Three-point marksmen

Troy Brady (14 three-pointers, 58 points in two games), Braxton Bertolette (32 points in one game), and Kolton Peterson (7 three-pointers, 32 points in one game) all proved their worth as top-5 shooters in our rankings. Bertolette was our player of the week for his performance last week, Brady had an excellent July for the Colorado Chaos, and Peterson dominated in front of several Division I coaches at the Sunflower Showcase in Kansas.

Smooth wing

Hunter Maldonado, a 6-foot-5 talent for the Colorado Miners, poured in 29 points in an 83-70 victory at the Las Vegas Fab 48. They dropped their second round game to the No. 1 overall seeded Indy Hoosiers in the 16U Invite Championship bracket, but what a performance by Maldonado on a big-time stage to open the play.

Another Miner shines against the best:

Breon Harper, a 2018 player for the 15's Elite team, dazzled with 24 points in a loss to the No. 3 ranked squad in the nation by Indivisible Hoops, Team
