FIVE TAKEAWAYS: Sumner (Kan.) vs. Hogan Prep (Mo.)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The first of ten boys’ games this weekend at the Cable Dahmer Shootout featured Hogan Prep running away from Sumner Academy on Friday.
Held at Avila University, the event (formerly the Hy-Vee Shootout) will feature several of the Kansas City area’s top teams from both sides of the Missouri-Kansas border squaring off on Friday and Saturday.
Hogan Prep (4-2) showed they are still a force in Missouri Class 3 one year after advancing to the Missouri Class 3 Final Four in Columbia. Led by Abilene Christian signee Damien Daniels, Hogan Prep built a 22-10 lead at the end of the first quarter, led 45-20 at the half, then outscored Sumner 23-3 in the third quarter before both teams pulled the plug and entered their subs.
Here, Prep Hoops takes a look at several standouts in the contest.
Rashaad Daniels was in attack mode throughout much of the contest, getting to the basket off the dribble and making plays. He is a good passer and a good creator and showed the ability to knock down mid-range shots as well.
Damien Daniels, a 5’7 2018 point guard, is a night mare in the open court and as an on-ball defender for Hogan Prep. He created numerous turnovers in the Rams’ press when he was on the court and scored 11 points despite not getting a lot of run the blow out. He finished with 11 points, eight assists and five steals for the Rams.
Marty Jackson continues to shine for Hogan Prep. On Friday he went for a game-high 14 points on 7 of 10 shooting, added four rebounds and two blocked shots. He is an undersized 6’5 2018 forward who does a lot of good things at both ends of the floor — he can block shots, is an active player on the boards and around the basket at the offensive end and can step out and shoot from the outside.
Donnell Bagley was strong off the bench for Sumner and provided a rare bight spot for the team. A 5’11 2019 guard, Bagley went for 14 points, tied for game-high, added a team-high four rebounds and was 5 for 6 from the field.
