The Great Western Winter Classic took place at Nets on Fire in St George, UT. The event ran from December 19th through December 22nd. It featured over 70 teams, including numerous local programs. Several players took advantage of this event to improve their rankings, gain exposure, and generate scholarship opportunities. In this article, we take a look at the 5 local prospects that boost their stock the most during the event. 

  1. Alex Tews 6’10 C Cooper Institute 2021 - Tews is a traditional back to the basket post, while some schools are trending away from this type of 5 man, there is always room for talented bigs. Tews is a big, powerful kid with good footwork and multiple post moves. He proved to be a fierce competitor that plays with aggression and intensity, he was able to score around the rim and showed decent R&J ability.
  2. Marqui WorthyMarquiWorthy6'3" | SFSonora | 2022State 6’4 SG Veritas 2022 (featured image) - This dude was an absolute monster. Plays the game with a bully mentality, simply forcing defenders to make business decisions. Worthy was the perfect example of a player playing to his strength as he committed himself to playing downhill, and getting paint touches.
