Prep Hoops takes a look at some of the top performers on Tuesday.

Tate Busse, 6’2, G, 2018, St. Francis

Tate Busse of St. Francis, who went over 1,000 career points last year as a junior, breaks school record for points tonight. The previous school record at St. Francis was 1,312 and he’s now at 1,325 points. Also a football standout, Busse also has 10 dunks this year. He helped the Indians advance all the way to the Class 1A state semifinals last season.

Tyon Gant, 6’6, F/G, 2018, Schlage

Wing player has a versatile, well-rounded skill set with the ability to do a lot of different things. Gant has good size and athleticism and the ability to play above the rim at both ends of the court. He most recently went for 22 points in a win over rival Washington and has helped Schlagle open the season 7-2.

Larry White, 6’5, F, 2018, Topeka

White put back his own miss for a game winning bucket as Topeka High knocked off cross town rival Topeka Hayden 64-63 on Tuesday. He scored a game-high 24 points in the win. An athletic 6’5 wing player, White is a capable shot blocker, 3-point shooter and an intriguing 3 and ‘D’ type player.

Shawn Warrior, 6’4, G, 2020, Southeast

A talented guard, Warrior went for 20 points to help Wichita Southeast run away from Northwest with a 92-67 win. Warrior entered the game averaging 7.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game as part of a deep and talented Southeast team, but is one of several players capable of putting together big performances on any given day.

Tyler Brown, 6’1, G, 2018, Derby

The Valley Center transfer helped Derby run away from Newton and improve to 5-2 this season as he poured in 30 points. Even playing for a talented team that features four players averaging in double figures, Brown has brought with him his high scoring ways that he became known for last season at Valley Center where he averaged nearly 30 points per game. This season, Brown is averaging 19.7 points through the team’s first seven games.
