Nothing breaks a defense down as effectively as a pass. Crisp and clean ball movement puts the defense at your mercy. It forces them to react to what you are doing, and forces more opportunities for them to make mistakes. There were a number of elite passers at the Battle at the Lakes tournament. Take a look at some of the best passers in St. Louis Park below.

You can't make a list highlighting the best passers and leave Kendall Martin off of it. Martin was the best passer in St. Louis Park all weekend. His ability to manipulate defenders with his eyes allowed him to take advantage of defenses with relative ease. He also had great vision to recognize when the defense had overloaded one side or if players were playing lax defense. The featured clip highlights Martin recognizing the defense overloading his side of the floor. Martin then fires the ball cross-court to the open man which sends the defense scrambling.

Avyn Hayes-

One of the passes of the tournament was thrown by Avyn Hayes. Off the tip, Hayes got the ball and recognized a diving cutter to the hoop.
