The Rumble Up North included several prominent Minnesota players and programs.  What five players had the best showing?  Here is our group of Five Best from what we observed. 

Jake Braaten

Jake Braaten of Minnesota Rise (6’1 PG of Byrton; 2021).  We are back for our weekly informative to all of you college coaches and high school basketball fans that Jake Braaten is tough, he is a coach’s dream in terms of decision making and execution, and Jake is as consistent as they come.  This weekend Jake went at the Illinois T’Wolves and put 22 points on them in a 61-56 loss.  His team needed him to score and Jake put points on the board regularly. Later in the event Braaten faced another solid Illinois team (H.I.T.) and scored 18 with four assists leading his squad to a 57-41 win.  Braaten is physical leader who is outstanding reading and executing off ball screens plus he made 43 percent of his threes as a junior, and has shot well this 17u season.
