What prospects at the #GritSZNKickoff stood above the rest on the defensive end of the floor?  Here are some of the top players on that end in #GritSZNKickoff: Top Defenders!

 

Andre Holden & Mason King (Tri-State Knicks 15U)

For a 15U frontline these two were extremely imposing on the defensive end with their strength and the way they protected the rim.  Both swatted a handful of shots in the game we saw.

 

Quinn Kusgen (Mid-Mo Elite 17U)

Kusgen is a scrappy guard that consistently got steals for his Mid-Mo Elite squad and took them the other way for scores.

 

Luke Northweather (Mid-Mo Elite 17U)

Northweather anchored in the paint for Mid-Mo Elite as a rim protector swatting guards shots and walling up against fellow post players.

 

Jaqualon Roberts (IE Blaze Select 17U)

Strong and athletic 2023 power forward that was playing up a year.  He was a force on the interior being able to block shots and playing tough defense being able to switch.

 

Jalen Brown (RISE 17U)

Brown was one of the premier perimeter defenders at the event.  Physical point guard that was in the grill of opposing guards in Louisville.
