Hunter Dean 6’8 F Lakeshore

This season was my first time really seeing Dean play, and I have come away mighty impressed. Dean has the size to play down in the low post, as well as the touch and post moves to be an effective player down there. However, where he impresses me the most is out on the perimeter. He is capable of taking defenders off the dribble, and finishing high above the rim, and he also has deep range and looks really good using his step back jumper to the left.

Corey Madison 6’1 G Lusher

Madison is half of a very dynamic duo in the backcourt for Lusher that has Lusher right on pace to be making a trip to the top 28, as a 3 seed in Div. II. Madison is an excellent shooter from deep, and is capable of playing both guard positions at a high level. He plays with a high energy and a high motor on both ends of the floor.

Jaron Davis 5’10 G Jehovah-Jireh

Despite being a little undersized for either guard position for the next level, Davis has a lion’s heart, and is capable of getting a bucket anytime that he wants. He and Donald “Trey” Johnson have both done a great job of leading Jehovah-Jireh this season, and once again are the top seeded team heading into the playoffs.

Ian Kirsh 6’5 F Lusher

Kirsh is another member of a very successful Lusher team, and he is tasked with playing the big especially on the defensive side of the ball. On offense, he is a versatile player that is capable of playing on the wing getting to the goal off the dribble as well as knocking down shots from the outside at an impressive rate for someone of his size.

Daelon Murdock 5’10 G Helen Cox

Despite his slim frame, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better finisher around the rim, especially for his size. Murdock has a number of different finishes around the paint, and finishes better than you would expect around size. He is an above average shooter from deep, but can still get better in that area of his game. He is also a very good distributor especially when attacking the goal.
