Prep Hoops Missouri was in attendance at Cardinal Ritter College Prep on Sunday for the final day of the Rameybasketball Fall League. K-State defeated Illinois 54-51 in an exciting championship game. K-State defeated Michigan State 59-48 in the first semifinal game while Illinois defeated Mizzou 64-61 in the other semifinal.
Here is look at the top five players from the final day of the Ramey Fall League.
Jason Montgomery 6’4″ Marquette (’19)
The Maryville commit scored 46 points in the two games to lead K-State to the tournament championship. He displayed his versatile skill set throughout the day. He handled the ball well and made good decisions passing the ball and he also scored from inside and on the perimeter. His stroke from 3-point range was on the money. He also showcased his excellent rebounding. Montgomery scored 25 points in the semifinals against Michigan State in the semifinals and 21 points in the championship game against Illinois.
Jordan Nesbitt 6’5″ St. Louis Christian (’21)
The physical wing player put up a total of 43 points in the two games in leading his team to the championship game. He is a solid perimeter player with good handles and an effective mid-range jumper. However, when he is attacking the basket, he is almost unstoppable with his size and physical strength. When he gets the ball in the low post, he can just overpower smaller defenders, plus he is a beast on the offensive boards. You can tell he has been in the weight room because he is bigger and he has put the strength to good use.
Ilyaas Harris 5’10” Marquette (’21)
The young man known as “Biscuit” is emerging as one of the top young point guards in the state. He has already displayed his chops as a good floor leader who can facilitate and play defense, but he showcased scoring ability from all three levels on Sunday. He displayed a much improved stroke from 3-point range to go along with his mid-range jumpers and float game. Although small, he was strong with the dribble and played through contact to get into the lane.
Mario Fleming 6’3″ Cardinal Ritter (’21)
A physical wing player, Fleming scored a game-high 30 points in his team’s semifinals loss to Illinois. He is a tough matchup problem because of his strength and ability to score around the rim. He is virtually automatic from inside of 10 feet of the basket. He can post up to get buckets and he is very good off the drive where he can finish and still get his share of conventional three-point plays.
Courtland Sol 6’2″ St. Louis Christian (’19)
An aggressive combo guard who scored 20 points in the team’s semifinal loss to K-State. He was tough on the downhill drive where he was able to draw contact and get to the free throw line. He also finished his share to get three-point plays. He is a good ball handler who can change directions and knock down pull-up jumpers on the move.
