With the basketball season set to begin in a few weeks, Prep Hoops Kansas is taking a look at some of the top players across the state in a wide range of categories.
Today, we take a look at several players who were nominated as the state’s most underrated wing players.
Nathan Dalby, 6’4, G/F, 2019, Leavenworth
Dalby is a wing player with good size at 6’4 and is coming off a strong summer running with the KC Spurs Grey 17U squad. He brings toughness, the ability to rebound and make shots to the floor. He still needs to refine his game a little but is poised for a big season for Leavenworth.
Conner Havlas, 6’4, F, 2019, Quinter @ConnerHavlas
Havlas is a long, lanky wing player with a soft left handed touch from behind the 3-point arc. He can handle the ball a little, has some bounce and has an improved all-around skill set. He still needs to get stronger and add some weight to his frame, but has some upside due to his size and length.
Easton Jones, 6’4, F, 2019, Spring Hill
A terrific athlete with good size, jumping ability and the ability to run the floor, Jones mostly played a reserve role off the bench for Spring Hill. He brought energy to the floor for Spring Hill last season and has the ability to rebound, get garbage baskets off put backs or running the floor in transition and can defend multiple positions well.
Tyler Kahmann, 6’3, G/F, 2019, Campus
A strong, athletic wing player, Kahmann is also a standout football prospect. He averaged 12.1 points, a team-high 5.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.5 steals per game last season and shot 38 percent from 3-point range. Kahmann is a terrific outside shooter with good form and balance, but also brings the ability to rebound and defend multiple positions to the court. Was a second-team all-state selection last year.
Ian Liechti, 6’4, F, 2019, Rose Hill
Liechti is an active forward with good length who brings activity to the floor. He is most comfortable at the offensive end of the floor operating along the baseline and gets on the offensive glass and blocks shots.
