The second Cedar City showcase took place on February 20th and 21st in Cedar City Utah. The event featured over 17 Nevada-based programs and offered an opportunity for players to gain some long-overdue exposure. It also featured several lock-down defenders. In this article, we take a look at the top defensive players from the event. 

Naurese MenoNaureseMeno6'3" | SGLosee | 2021StateNV 6’3 SG OTTG 2021 (#77PHN 2021) - This is the second consecutive time that I’ve watched Meno and his defense jumped out at me. He played with great effort and energy when on ball, and showed good defensive IQ sliding over and helping on drives. 

Khaman MakerKhamanMaker7'1" | CDesert Valley Prep | 2024StateNV 7’1 C LV Shooters 2024 (#2PHN 2024) (featured image) - Easily the top defensive player at the event and one of the top defensive players in the country. His rim protection is worth at least 10 -15 points per game. His size is obvious, but it’s his ability to be rangy that makes him so tough. Maker doesn’t just block shots at the rim but is also able to contest jumpers outside the arc
