Torrence Watson 6’5″ Whitfield: The 2018 Mizzou recruit continued his late-season offensive rampage with a 40-point performance in a victory over Pinckneyville (IL) at the Bank of O’Fallon Shootout. That followed up his career high 58 point night against DeSmet. Watson has averaged 41 points over his past five games. He has also surpassed the 2,500 point mark in his career.

CE Talton 6’3″ Monroe City: The 2019 guard scored 45 points in the Panthers’ 86-84 double-overtime victory over Blair Oaks at the Central Banks Shootout in Jefferson City. Talton made a 3-pointer at the buzzer at the end of the first overtime to cause the second extra session. He then made two free throws with less than a second left to give Monroe City the victory.

Sam Stichnote 6’2″ Southern Boone: The 2019 guard led the host Eagles to the championship of the Southern Boone Classic. He scored a game high 21 points to lead the Eagles to a 69-46 victory over Fulton in the semifinals.
