Prep Hoops Missouri was in attendance for the final day of the IAABO Fall League at Parkway North. Here is a look at the top teams in action at Parkway North.
Troy: The Trojans will field a solid unit this season after winning 17 games a year ago. Troy will be led by 6’6: Jim King, who has the ability to dominate games in the post with his athletic ability. The Trojans also return talented 6’3″ 2020 wing Braden Nett and 6’1″ 2021 point guard Brendan Deters, giving Troy a strong trio to build around. Point guard Tyson Ludwig is a 5’8″ 2020 who will also help.
Parkway South: The Patriots won a conference championship and played for a district title as well. They will build around 6’3″ 2020 guard Adam Sommer, who can score and facilitate. Guard Josh Skidmore is a solid 2019 player who brings experience as does 6’1″ 2019 forward wing Greg Rollins. There is size on hand in 6’5″ 2019 Mitchell Englebrecht and improving 6’8″ 2020 Isaac Esker.
St. Mary’s: The Dragons will have a new look after graduating a strong senior class that won a lot of games. The top returning player is point guard Yuri Collins. The SLU commit is still on the mend from off-season shoulder surgery. Looking to step into bigger roles are 6’3″ 2020 wing Sofara Rasas, 6’6″ 2019 forward Donovan Parker, 6’6″ 2020 forward Cole Miller and 2021 point guard Wunya Brown.
Parkway North: The Vikings will be led by 5’10” 2019 guard Tayari Goodwin, who is a four-year starter who can get buckets and run the offense. He will be joined in the backcourt by talented 5’8″ 2021 point guard Deashon Petty, who has excellent quickness and ball skills. Xavier Drummond is a 6’4″ 2020 wing who has been playing regularly since his freshman year while 6’5″ 2021 forward Brandon Lightfoot has a lot of potential.
Timberland: Top player Blake Busateri missed the final two weeks with a shoulder strain. The 6’3″ 2019 guard can really put points on the board. He will lead a supporting cast that includes 6’2″ 2020 guard Jonathan Davidson, 6’1″ 2020 guard Amari Johnson and 6’2″ freshman wing Luke Busateri.
MICDS: The Rams will be young, but have some talented players to build around. Brandon Mitchell, a 6’4″ 2022 guard is a talented youngster with an excellent skill set. The Rams were without 6’5″ 2021 wing Jack Pronger, who was at the Pangos Camp in Chicago. He is an excellent 3-point shooter with improving skills. Forward Aaron Hendricks is a 6’5″ 2021 forward who rebounds the ball well while 2021 guards Hasani Spann and Nick Roper can knock down 3-pointers.
