There were some impressive perimeter shooters on hand at the Tuesday session of the MICDS Holiday Tournament. Here are some of the expert marksmen who made it happen from long distance.

Jayce Catchings 6’3″ Wentzville Liberty: The 2020 guard made six 3-pointers in the Eagles’ 61-60 victory over Whitfield and none were bigger than the desperation 30 footer that he tossed in in the final second play to give his team the dramatic victory over the No. 2 seed in the quarterfinals.

Jerram Adams 6’3″ Westminster Christian: The 2019 sniper was spectacular in the Wildcats’ victory over Francis Howell Central as he scored 29 points and made nine of his 12 attempts from 3-point range. The youngster was on fire on Tuesday afternoon.

Trent Stiebler 6’3″ Ladue: The 2018 guard has been excellent during the first two games of the tournament from 3-point range. He scored 19 points and made five 3-pointers in the Rams’ loss to Ladue. Trent plays a steady, no-mistakes type of game in addition to his excellent perimeter shooter.

Darrion Hayes 6’2″ Miller Career Academy: The 2018 guard scored a team-high 22 points and made five 3-pointers in the Phoenix’ loss to MICDS in the consolation round. He was butter with his high-arching shots from the corner.

Devin Rice 6’0″ Parkway Central: The burly 2018 guard doesn’t shoot a lot of 3-pointers, but when he does, he makes them count. Rice knocked down three 3-pointers in the Colts’ victory over St. Charles in the quarterfinals and all of them came at a time that seemed to stop the Pirates’ momentum when they had something going.

Julian Cheaney 6’5″ MICDS: The long and lanky 2018 wing made three 3-pointers in the Rams’ victory over Miller Career Academy in the consolation round. Cheaney is a late bloomer who has grown from 5’9″ to 6’5″ during his career. He is excellent on the catch and shoot.
