Posted On: 04/2/18 8:00 AM

With the end of the high school season fast approaching, we began our AAU previews at the start of March and now we have begun the look at rosters. Rosters and teams are starting to take shape and we are getting more and more everyday. This one, is a look at Southwest Rebels 2019 coached by Kaleb Oldham.

Number Prospect HT POS Class High School
3 Grant Niehaus 6’2 SG 2020 Washington
7 Tad Kapak 6’7 PF 2019 Bloomfield
23 Cole Niehaus 6’1 SG 2019 Evansville Memorial
21 Quentin Steele 5’10 PG 2019 Greenwood Christian
11 Carter Shaw 5’11 PG 2019 North Knox
35 Silas Robbins 6’4 SF 2019 Linton Stockton
33 Sammie Robbins 6’5 PF 2019 Linton Stockton

Roster Breakdown: This is one of the more interesting AAU rosters from the South as it’s a collection of talent from the area. You have the Robbins boys and Tad Kapak to hold down the inside. Kapak is improving every game and the Robbins’ looked really good this past season for Linton. Overall, they will compete because they are going to be really solid defensively and they can score the ball in many different ways.

Guy You Have To Watch: Tad Kapek (Bloomfield)

Kapek is a foreign exchange student from the Czech and he knows how to play the game of basketball at a high level. Most of the time he is reserved but there are other times where he is almost unstoppable. Kapek is a solid defender using his length to block shots and his offense is coming along. This summer will be instrumental in his development of the offensive side.

Best Bet To End Up Breaking Out: Silas Robbins (Linton Stockton)

Robbins is a tough wing who isn’t afraid of anyone. He is able to score the ball at all three levels and is still refining his jumper. He’s an avid rebounder who crashes the board hard on both the offensive and defensive ends. He is getting a little bit of college interest but this summer he should break out. He runs the floor well and should shine in AAU.

Who Should Be Watching: D3

All of these guys are capable of playing at the next level in some capacity. Some of these guys have interest already this year and others will start to climb onto the radar of college coaches. This is a group with a lot of potential, they just have to capitalize on that because potential only gets you so far.
