Today we are taking a look across both sides of the Kansas/Missouri border in Kansas City at some intriguing backcourt players who are great compliments to a successful backcourt duo. These are guards that may provide the scoring punch, the playmaking, the on ball defense, or a little bit of everything that help create and energetic and effective backcourt tandem for their teams.

 

Jeremy Paige, 5’11 Guard, Van Horn, 2022: The running mate with future Washburn University point guard Jaden MondayJadenMonday6'0" | PGVan Horn | 2021StateMO, Paige is quite the competitor in the back court and is one of the big time spark plugs for a dangerous Falcons team. He brings a lot of toughness and grit in his 5’11 frame and is not afraid of big spots in games or to help handle pressure up the floor. He has a good burst with the ball, nice pull up game, and has gotten better at kicking out or making the extra pass for better looks as he has played in more games. The defensive aggressiveness and rebounding he brings are added bonuses as well. Currently he is putting together a 11.8 point, 3.8 rebound, 4.2 assists, and blistering 3.7 steals per game
