This past weekend the NIBC Invitational tipped off at the St. James Sports Complex in Springfield, Virginia. The event in ongoing this week into next weekend and features the top talent from around the country. The Prep Hoops Maryland trio was in attendance for the slate of games this weekend and tackle three questions surrounding the contests.

1. Which player from MD/DC/VA boosted his stock the most this weekend in your eyes?

Giacubeno: I was impressed with Travis Roberts Travis Roberts 6'4" | SF Bishop Walsh | 2022 State MD of Bishop Walsh. His team struggled overall against the stout competition, but it’s clear that Roberts continues to add to his game. The 6-foot-5 guard is always a threat from three, but is getting more confidence operating off the dribble and finishing around the basket in a variety of ways.

Ayalew: I’d have to go with  Malik Bowman Malik Bowman 6'7" | PF Bishop Walsh | 2023 State MD  from Bishop Walsh. The 6-foot-7+ forward showcased his versatility offensively with his ability to shoot from the perimeter but also attack the paint off the bounce and finish in traffic. Bowman exhibited toughness at the rim defensively as well. He protected the rim quite admirably, was aggressive on the glass, and battled effectively in the paint against bigger foes.
