The Chi-Town Tip-Off took place Friday, April 16th through Sunday, April 18th. The event, which featured over 250 teams and some of the top programs in the Midwest, was one of the biggest events of the young grassroots season. My focus this weekend was on the 2023 division, which featured many talented players. It also featured several players that could flat-out shoot it. In this article, we take a look at some of the top 16U Snipers. 

Collin Wainscott Collin Wainscott 6'0" | PG Marmion Academy | 2023 State IL 5’11 PG Illinois Stars Gordon - The Illinois Stars PG got the action started right away on Friday. A shifty guard with a slick handle, he showed good form and a consistent release. Wainscott knocked down 4 trey’s in a 25 point effort against Breakaway. 

Braden Becker 6’0 PG Team Iowa - Becker was one of the better fundamental shooters I saw on the week. He did a terrific job of doing his work early. The 6’0 PG displayed great shot prep, getting his feet set and having his hands ready before receiving the ball. This simple fundamental allowed him to raise up and get his shot off quickly over closing defenders.
