EVENT RECAP: Missouri 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 Missouri that stood out at the event.
Jack Gillig, 6’2, G, 2018, Blue Springs South (Mo.)
Gilling is a really nice all-around player who hasn’t gotten a lot of attention through the early stages of the season. He is averaging 20 points per game and is a well-rounded player who shoots the ball well from the perimeter, rebounds and plays defense. At 6’2, Gilling has good size for a guard and brings terrific leadership to the court for BSS.
Rich Johnson, 6’0, G, 2019, Lee’s Summit West (Mo.)
Kid gets buckets. From everywhere. There hasn’t been a lot of hype about Johnson up to this point, but if he keeps playing like he did Saturday against Blue Valley Northwest, he is going to get a lot of attention going forward. Johnson isn’t very big and we’re not sure what level he projects out to in the future, but he is a talented offensive player who can score the basketball.
Mason Taylor, 6’4, F, 2018, Granview (Mo.)
How does a Division I recruit raise their profile you might ask? Well, Taylor has gone from a relative under-appreciated athlete to a Kansas City Player of the Year candidate. He is a talented player who can play either guard spot, is an improved outside shooter and can score in a variety of ways.
Daryl Wright, 6’4, G/F, 2018, Center (Mo.)
Wright brings a big, strong athletic frame to the court as well as a versatile skill set. He can play inside and on the perimeter as well and despite being listed as a forward, Wright feels equally comfortable on the perimeter as a ball handler and scorer.
Jhaidyn Richardson, 6’4, G/F, 2018, Oak Park (Mo.)
Richardson is a well-rounded, versatile player who brings good size to the court as well as the ability to do a little bit of everything. He can handle the ball a little, rebounds well and can also step out and shoot from the 3-point line. He put together a solid stat line in a win over Blue Valley on Saturday.
