It's been a spring and summer of growth for Jace Chatman. Last season as a sophomore at Skyview High School, the lanky 6-foot-3, 165-pound wing was able to settle into a supporting role, deferring to older teammates. This spring with his Northwest Prospects AAU team and especially in June with the Storm in school ball, Chatman has needed to step up his game - and it's gone well.

"We've had a lot of injuries so a lot of JV players have moved up but we just need to improve and get better," Chatman said. "Since the ball is now more in my hands, I've become more of a scorer and a leader. I want to be a good playmaker, rebounder, scorer, push the ball and get my teammates open."

Chatman has been a key player on the Northwest Prospects AAU team, which is coached by his father Jeff Chatman, who played at BYU in the 1980's. The Prospects had a successful spring that included winning a tournament at the 16U level, and this June Chatman has been back playing with Skyview who is missing a number of players, notably returning starters Squeeky Johnson and Kyle Gruhler due to injury.
