Friday afternoon BFL knocked off Minnesota Prep Academy as a part of the Grind Session in Arizona 79-67.  Who were the top prospects/performers on the day?  Prep Hoops looked on closely to give you the rundown. 

One.  Paolo BancheroPaoloBanchero6'10" | PFO'Dea | 2021State#3NationWA of BFL.  We detailed his game in the linked story below:

Two.  Tavion Banks of MPA (6’8 2022 Forward).  My first live game viewing (after seeing the highlight clips) of Tavion Banks was a positive one.  Coming in I noticed Banks with a 15 point game, an 11 point/8 rebound game, and a 20 point/11 rebound performance recently.  The build up was there and facing a five-star, top 2-3 player in the nation Banks produced with 14 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists (my postgame stats included a three from a different player on accident).  Banks has the look of the modern day power forward.  He’s 6-foot-8, long, and agile meaning he can move his feet off a ball screen getting his feet and length in the air to stop the turn.  He’s also got the face-up agility to play away from the basket.  I was most impressed by the ability of Banks to pass the ball
