OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Hosted by Shawnee Mission East, the annual KaMo Shootout has earned a reputation as one of the midwest’s premier summer events for high school teams.
This event tipped off on Friday and will wrap up on Sunday with championship brackets being played. Here, Prep Hoops takes a look at some of the events top performers on Saturday.
11 — Byron Alexander, 6’4, G, 2020, Staley
Alexander can do a little bit of everything at the high school level — shoot it, handle it, get on the boards and can defend. He was a man among boys at times on Saturday. Alexander combines a terrific all-around skill set with high basketball IQ and a big, athletic frame for a guard and impressed over the weekend with his willingness to move without the ball and score from all three levels.
31- Glen McClintock, PG, Rockhurst
A quick point guard who can get a step on defenders if they aren’t looking. McClintock is a talented player who can dribble his way out of any problem area. He keeps his head up and enjoys passing ahead to his teammates. A good team player who listens to his coach and can score if nothing else is working. He has an accurate step-back and a way of scoring around the basket.
12-Liashwuon Boston, Grandview
Boston is a guard opposing teams have to pay attention to. When he finds his rhythm, he can light it up wherever he has space. From behind the 3-point line or anywhere around the free throw line. He can also handle the ball and take defenders off his dribble. Boston is also a good passer and a can kick it out when he drives and the defense collapses on him. He brings a lot to the table.
1-Alan Watson, PG, 5’9, Bonner Springs
Watson is a creative point guard who always finds a basket. He plays well off the ball but does his best when he’s running the show. He can shake off defenders and take the ball to the basket. He gets his floater off before defenses have time to react and he can pass it out for an easy assist. Watson is also a great 3-point shooter, someone comfortable in letting it fly several feet behind the line. A player t keep your eyes on.
