One of the more popular holiday tournament attractions each year has been the Bethel University Invitational. This year’s structure includes four teams, preset matchups and plenty of prospects to keep an eye on. Here are eight of the best displaying their game in Arden Hills on Thursday and Friday:
Isaiah Watts (6-3, Sr., SG/SF, Bloomington Jefferson) – Watts had a fantastic summer with Fury and is one of the more aggressive perimeter defenders in Minnesota. A top 50 prospect in the 2019 class.
Ricky Eason (6-0, Sr., PG, Centennial) – One of the more explosive scoring guards around, Eason averages 14.5 PPG for the Cougars in a balanced scoring quartet. Eason is a top 65 prospect in the senior class.
Carter Anderson (6-4, Jr., F, Centennial) – A bruising combo forward that rebounds and scores inside efficiently. Scoring 18.5 PPG to lead his team. Carter is a top 50 prospect in MN’s 2020 class.
Matthew Wyffels (6-5, Sr., PF, Centennial) – Wyffels is a stretch 4 committed to Carleton thanks to his toughness on the boards and defense guarding bigger guys along with a reliable three-point shot. Scoring 14 a game for Centennial and ranked in the top 160 for Minnesota seniors.
Mario Dukes (6-2, Sr., SF, Roseville) – The Jamestown commit is a solidly built wing who missed a couple games due to a concussion but is easing his way back into game shape and contributing 6 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists per contest. Mario is a top 205 prospect in the senior class.
Camryn Walker (6-3, Sr., SF, Roseville) – A bouncy wing with confidence in his shot and a knack for slashing to the bucket, Walker is leading Roseville with 11 points per game this season.
Jake Breitbach (6-2, Jr., PG, Armstrong) – Strong floor general with few holes in his game. Good driver and competent shooter but an even better distributor; he’s scoring 13 a game alongside two more double figure teammates.
