#2 Three sophs from Brophy Prep stood out in the JV game. 

Malcolm Smith Malcolm Smith 6'5" | SF Brophy Prep | 2023 State AZ Brophy Prep

-A versatile forward can handle it and he plays hard. He plays the game with a high IQ and rebounds well, makes plays for others and can score it from inside and out. Likes slashing to the basket and getting on the glass.  

Conner Ivy Conner Ivy 6'4" | SF Brophy Prep | 2023 State AZ Brophy Prep 

-A long and lean face-up forward. He handles it decently and can shoot it from mid to the 3. He can pull-up off the dribble and shows upside.

#3 One junior and two freshman from Desert Mountain stood out in the JV game.
