Last night Minnesota Prep Academy returned home to the Twin Cities with a game against North Metro Blazers! These are my observations on all nine MPA players who played, as well as one standout from the Blazers!

Puoch DobuolPuochDobuol6'7" | PFSt. Cloud Apollo | 2020StateMN (6’8 2021 F)- After a standout season at St. Cloud Apollo last year, Pouch is now showcasing his game on the Grind Session with Minnesota Prep. Loaded with an intriguing blend of length, explosiveness, and the ability to handle the ball, Pouch was dominant around the rim. He slashed from the wing off the dribble for multiple dunks, was forcing turnovers to get out in transition for easy scores, and created some opportunities for dunks with his off-ball movement. Though normally a shooting threat, his shot wasn’t falling last night so he adjusted and started to focus on getting to the rim. Although the shot wasn’t falling, I still liked what I saw with his ability to create space in isolation off the dribble, or use his handle to get by his defender and attack. He also used his length to block two shots on the night.
