OUTLOOK: Team Rush is returning many of the same players they had on their roster last season, but are adding a few notable faces, including Park Hill South (Mo.) 2019 Lamel Robinson, one of the KC area’s top returning point guards. Robinson can handle it and create for himself and others off the bounce and is a hard nosed, tough defender and all-around player. Also new to the squad is 6’7 wing Tyon Foster, who brings length, athleticism and a good all-around skill set to the court. After a standout career at Schlagle (Kan.), he has committed to play at Link Year Prep in Branson (Mo.). Also new to the team is Lee’s Summit West (Mo.) 2019 guard Rich Johnson, who is coming off a breakout season with the Titans. He is quick-on-quick and can get to the bucket.

Among the returners is Shawnee Mission East (Kan.) 6’8 Zane Meeks is a rising stretch 4 who currently holds a pair of Division I offers, while Elijah Williams, a 6’3 guard from Olathe North (Kan.) is a tough defender, rebounder and all-around performer. Rockhurst (Mo.) 2019 guard Glen McClintock is a standout shooter, ball handler and shot creator and is coming off a big season, as is 2019 Rockhurst (Mo.) forward Darrius Hughes. An athletic forward, Hughes is tough on the boards, can finish high above the rim and is a capable and versatile defender. Also in the mix is Kamto Eze, a rim-running big man from Grandview (Mo.) and Stone Jefferies, a standout shooter from Bishop Miege (Kan.)
