The list for the 2021 Direnna All Star game is loaded with talent across the board. We will check out some of the forwards from the Kansas side we would love to see go toe to toe with forwards from the Missouri side. With COVID precautions taking affect with the playing of the game,  some of these matchups will just have to stay as a wish.

 

Joey Schultz Joey Schultz 6'6" | SF Platte County | 2021 State MO (Platte County) vs. Nate Barnhart Nate Barnhart 6'9" | PF DeSoto | 2021 State KS (De Soto)

Schultz is a long, rangy, and athletic forward that covers a ton of ground blocks a lot of shots, and finishes very efficiently attacking the rim. He has some perimeter ability as well and can catch on the move and make things happen. The 6’6 athletic Schultz going against the future 7’ Wyoming start Barnhart and his athletic prowess and perimeter ability would be a blast. The rim protection, ability to score against length, and athleticism from both guys would clash.

 

Kyren Spiller (Center) vs. Will Townsend Will Townsend 6'8" | PF Shawnee Mission East | 2021 State KS (SM East) (Pictured)

Spiller is a big bodied point forward who I would love to see matchup with the big Townsend, making him come play out on the perimeter some
