Parkway South played host to Mehlville in a key Suburban West Conference game on Tuesday night. South fields a solid team while Mehlville is a much improved team with two tournament championships on its resume. On this evening, it was all Parkway South as it got out of the gate early and never relented to take a 64-31 victory. Here is a look at the 10 Best from the Parkway South-Mehlville game.
Most Valuable Player: Jordan Doyle (Parkway South) – The 6’1″ 2018 guard finished with a game-high 13 points to lead the Patriots’ balanced attack. He is an excellent 3-point shooter, but he did a lot of damage on the drive and in transition.
Best Offensive Player: Jordan Doyle (Parkway South) – Doyle made a 3-pointer early in the game to get the Patriots going, then scored on a variety of cuts, drives and transition buckets en route to his game-high 13 points.
Best Shooter: Carson Ulrich (Mehlville) – There wasn’t a whole lot of successful long range shooting going on, but the 6’0″ 2019 guard knocked down a couple of 3-pointers while displaying a confident stroke.
Best Passer: Dylan Branson (Mehlville) – The 6’5″ 2020 guard was playing in his second game since transferring from Chaminade. Although he had an off night shooting the ball, he displayed some dazzling passing ability to set up his teammates. He has excellent court vision and seems to have eyeballs all around his head.
Best Defensive Player: Josh Adams (Mehlville) – The 5’11” 2019 guard was a very good on-ball defender with his quickness and tenacity. He stayed in a stance and moved his feet well. He also shot the passing lanes for a few steals and picked a pocket as well.
Key Part of the Game: It was the beginning of the game, plain and simple. Parkway South scored the first 10 points of the game and Mehlville was never able to recover.
Most Versatile Player: A.J. Sommer (Parkway South) – The 6’5″ 2018 forward scored 11 points and did a little of everything for the Patriots. He displayed the ability to drive the ball, plus he could also score in the low post. He is a solid rebounder and very good passer as well.
Best Player of the Bench: Isaiah Winston-Johnson (Parkway South) – The 6’1″ 2018 forward provided 11 points off the bench and could have easily been the Most Valuable Player of the game. He brought energy, hustle and a good motor to change the tenor of the game when he entered.
Mr. Hustle Award: Isaiah Winston-Johnson (Parkway South) – See above. All offensive rebounds and loose balls seemed to have his name on them.
Best Young Prospect(s): Dylan Branson (Mehlville) and Adam Sommer (Parkway South): These two 2020 prospects have a nice future ahead of them. The 6’5″ Branson is a skilled guard with a big body who can shoot, handle the ball and drop some nice dimes. The 6’3″ Sommer is a tough combo guard who is strong with the dribble with the ability to drive and knock down jumpers.
