Prep Hoops Series — Kansas City: Stock Risers (Shooting Guards)
LAWRENCE, Kan. — Prep Hoops Kansas takes a look at several guards who raised their profile throughout the weekend at the Prep Hoops Series in Kansas City.
23 — Braden Belt, 6’0, G, 2019, Andover Central, SSA Elite Black
Belt is instant offense for SSA Elite as he showed he can come off the bench and immediately put points on the board. He is a smooth outside shooter, but can put the ball on the floor and create a little as well off the bounce. He was one of several SSA Elite players on the 17U squad that had a good showing in Lawrence.
20-Dillon Bynne, 6’1, G, 2019, Silver Lake, SSA Elite White
Bynne is a talented athlete who comes up big around the basket on hustle plays and behind the 3-point line. A quick passer with good court awareness. He’s a “team first” baller who is also willing to roll the dice and make plays for himself. He can rebound, defend and hit timely baskets when the clock is running down.
8-Jacob Coleman, 6’5, G, 2019, Basehor High, Mokan Select 17U
Coleman is a long guard/forward who runs the floor and finishes around the rim. He’s quick in open space and can weave his way through defenders on his way to the basket. He has good size at 6’5, and raw athleticism that can give him an edge when the ball goes up or he needs to create space. Coleman finds ways to get on the board and draw a lot of attention from opponents.
6-TJ Williams-Bey, 6’0, G, Piper High, Mokan Select 17U, 2019
Another impressive player who can keep things rolling offensively. Williams-Bey is dynamic with the ball who has a collection of moves on the fly. He has solid handles and the ability to finish through the air with opponents in his face. He’s shifty when he needs to be, someone who is almost always bringing his best to the floor.
2-Kobe Sifford, 6’2, G, 2019, Basehor High, Mokan Select 17U
A left handed sniper who can hurt teams from deep. Sifford has a smooth shot, great mechanics and the confidence to let it fly from anywhere on the floor. He can get it off with little space and does so frequently. He can also bring the ball up the floor and fill in for a point guard if he needs too, someone who can handle himself when the defensive pressure kicks up a notch.
