There aren’t many things more exciting than the Kansas high school basketball playoffs. But it’s always sad to see your team knocked out, and players you care about sent home. Here are some players making ‘too early’ exits (in alphabetical order):

Trey Abasolo Trey Abasolo 6'1" | CG Mulvane | 2021 State KS , senior, Mulvane:

The Wildcats fell victim to perhaps the biggest upset so far this year. The #1 seed in their sub-state, Mulvane was upended by Clearwater 54-45. But that shouldn’t diminish the incredible season of the 6-foot-1 combo guard. He did it all for the Wildcats, scoring 20.4 points and pulling down 7.4 rebounds per game to finish as Mulvane’s all-time leader in both categories. He also averaged 3.5 assists and 3.0 steals per contest.

Jaxon Brakeen, senior, Newton:

Newton gave Topeka West a valiant fight before going down 71-60. Brakeen led the charge with 5-11 from behind the ark and 7-7 from the line for 24 points. Brakeen showed some incredible range and competitiveness against one of the most athletic groups of guards you’ll find. It’s no surprise. He showed fight against the best opponents, like when he lit up Maize for 35 earlier this season.

Owen Braxmeyer Owen Braxmeyer 6'1" | CG Manhattan | 2021 State KS , senior, Manhattan:
