Height is usually a players best asset when playing basketball.  Fans love to see the dunks and exciting plays from the players who can play above the rim. However, there are always ballers who are short in stature that blow fans away as well. During the Grind SZN Kickoff, a group of guards below six foot stood out amongst the trees. We will take a look at five of the better guards from the weekend who stood below the six foot mark.

Zander Baker Zander Baker 5'7" | PG OKC Storm | 2023 State OK (5’10″ / RSE Basketball 2022 / 2023)

Baker was the floor general for the team that competed in the 17U portion of the tournament and was not out of place one bit.  He is not swift but uses his handle to probe the defense effectively.  Baker is a very good passer and found teammates spotting up for corner threes or on dives to the basket.  He can let if fly from three himself and made several from 24 feet.  Baker is a heady guard who controls the game with a strong sense of maturity.  He is a definite asset at the one and makes teammates around him better.
