The Great American Shootout Midwest wrapped up play on Sunday at Wichita Hoops Facility in Bel Aire, Kan. with several standout performances taking place in the final stages of bracket play.
Here, Prep Hoops Kansas takes a look at several of the top stock risers from Kansas who stood out throughout the weekend.
1 — Dakari Middleton, 6’3, G/F, 2020, Free State, Primetime Ballerz 16U (pictured)
Middleton is an athletic wing player that plays much bigger than his listed 6’3 height. He can handle it a little on the perimeter, battles bigger players in the paint at the defensive end and at the offensive end of the floor, Middleton loves to shoot out of the corners.
45 — Noah Cubit, 6’8, PF/C, 2020, Liberty, Primetime Ballerz 16U
His offensive game is still a work in progress, but Cubit showed a lot of promise at the defensive end of the court throughout the weekend. He is long, athletic and challenges shots around the basket. He runs the floor well, is active at both ends of the floor and did a good job protecting the basket and got on the defensive boards as well.
1 — Samuel Fisher, 5’10, PG, 2020, Skyline, WKE Eddy
Fisher is a strong ball handler and a high basketball IQ player who doesn’t turn the ball over or make many mistakes. He played up an age level with the 17U squad and helped WKE Eddy get into its offensive sets, played tough, hard nosed defense and can create a little off the dribble. Fisher also knocked down several outside shots and showcased a smooth, consistent outside shooting stroke.
42 — Chandler Marks, 6’6, F, 2020, Manhattan, SSA ELite 16U Black
Marks was a standout for Manhattan during June team camp as he is one of the few returning players with varsity experience from last year’s squad. This weekend Marks showed some diversity, able to score in the paint as well as on the perimeter. He has the ability to knock down shots, and features an athletic frame with broad shoulders and had several bright moments as a shot blocking holding his ground in the paint defensively.
22 — Alyus Wisdom, 6’3, G, 2020, Free State, Primetime Ballerz 16U
Wisdom and helped 16U Primetime Ballerz give KC Team Rush 17U a tough battle in the NBA championship bracket before falling in a hard fought contest while playing up an age level throughout the weekend. Wisdom is an athletic guard with a good feel for the game who can handle it, shoots well from the outside and has a smooth mid-range game.
