15u: Kingdom Hoops Navy 83 vs United Sports Academy 30

This was an absolute rout from  start to finish as the guys from Kingdom Hoops moved to 2-0 on the weekend with an emphatic 43 point win. Hoover’s Kir Diew, a 6’5 forward, showed that he can be a dominant presence in the paint, and scored in a multitude of ways during the convincing win. Other standouts for Kingdom Hoops were Steven Kramer, Jacob Runyan and Jackson Snyder. They might win this whole thing. 

 

              Caden Stoffer

16u: Iowa Mavs-Fisher 59 vs Iowa Flight 55

It appears the Iowa Mavs have combined their top two 16u squads for the weekend, and the roster is stacked. Caden Stoffer and Kyle Kelley have now been paired with Mekhi Jacobs and Alec Brown, and the four of them make up a nucleus of guys that could spur this team to a deep run in the tourney. Stoffer was exceptional in this game, the Cedar Rapids Prairie guard was showing off his athleticism with a baseline jam through traffic, it was the play of the night. Kelley was good, especially late, while scoring a team-high 14 points. For Iowa Flight, it was Kole Wehde showing off his beautiful stroke, keeping his team in the game with dive 3s and game-high 17 points. 

 

              Antwon French

16u: Iowa Dynasty 56 vs Kingdom Hoops Red 42 

Iowa City High has a new big-man coming in next season. A big and tough 6’5 power forward, Antwon French recently transferred to Iowa City High from Marshall High School in Missouri. He scored Iowa Dynasty’s first 10 points, setting the tone early and spurring what would be a wire-to-wire win for the eastern Iowa team. French finished with a game-high 15 points in the 14-point win. Guard combo of Christian Withrow and Andrew Tauchen was very good in the win for Dynasty, they combined for 22 points. This a good Dynasty unit that could make run tomorrow during Championship Sunday,
