EVENT RECAP: Kansas Stock Risers at Cable Dahmer Shootout
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The two-day Cable Dahmer Shootout held on Friday and Saturday at Avila University in Kansas City featured some of the best teams from the Kansas and Missouri side of the border with several exciting games and players.
Here, Prep Hoops takes a look at several stock risers from Kansas that stood out at the event.
Spencer Jones, 6’5, G/F, 2019, Bishop Miege (Kan.)
Jones is mostly playing a behind-the-scenes role alongside several star players. He is an athletic wing player with a well-rounded skill set with good size. He can defend multiple positions, rebounds and is a terrific finisher around the basket, but can also handle the ball a little and shoot from the outside as well.
Ezekiel Lopes, 6’2, G, 2018, Bishop Miege (Kan.)
An athletic shooting guard, Lopes combines terrific athleticism with the ability to stroke the 3 and get to the basket. He threw down several highlight type dunks on Saturday and knocked down several long distance 3-pointers.
Zac Genilo, St. Thomas Aquinas (Kan.)
St. Thomas Aquinas got a much-needed boost from Zac Genilo who had eight rebounds in the first half for the Saints. A 6’5, 2019 forward, Genilo also showed the ability to knock down shots from the perimeter, moves well without the ball at the offensive end and played with a big motor throughout the contest.
Sam Ward, 6’2, G, 2018, Blue Valley Northwest (Kan.)
A talented point guard with good size and athleticism, Ward can really shoot it, all the way out to the NBA 3-point line. He is a creative player and can put points on the board. He scored 14 points on Saturday and knocked down a pair of 3-pointers.
Jack Moellers, 6’2, G, 2020, St. James Academy (Kan.)
A 6’2 2020 guard, Moellers is a terrific outside shooter who had some struggles wes just 2 for 11 from 3-point range, but those numbers bely his abilities as a shooter — he’s one of the better knock down shooters we’ve seen through the early going of the 2017-18 season.
Siler Tschirhart, 6’8, PF/C, 2019, Blue Valley
There aren’t many better old-school, low post scorers and players than Blue Valley 6’8 2019 Siler Tschirhart. He is a strong, physical post player with good size who likes to get after it on the block. Blue Valley struggled to get him the ball, but when they did Oak Park really struggled to contain him around the basket.
Tyon-Grant Foster, 6’5, F/G, 2018, Schlagle (Kan.)
Grant-Foster is among the more underrated wing players with the ability to do a lot of different things at both ends of the floor. He handles the ball well, has good size, length and athleticism, can shoot from the perimeter and is an excellent rebounder and shot blocker.
