Around Kansas, Mid Season tournaments are kicking up and great matchups are getting lined up. The players will have great opportunities to help their schools make a statement for the second half of the season. Let’s take a look around the state at some notable games from players on Tuesday.

 

Blake Rucker, 6 ft Guard, 2024, Eureka HS, Hillsboro Invitational: The freshman guard put on a show on Tuesday night, making an early statement in Eureka’s win over Clay Center. Stepping up big time, the freshman scored 22 points including 2 three balls and was aggressive on the attack getting to the foul line 12 times. Rucker will be a player that we will need to keep a major eye on not only this season, but for the next 4 years.

 

Gabe Valentine, 6’2 Wing, 2021, Eureka HS, Hillsboro Invitational: Valentine was a steady force throughout the game for Eureka in their win over Clay Center. He scored 14 points in the win, getting to the rim at will and played very efficiently.
