The Prep Hoops Live SZN Kickoff concluded on Sunday in Lincoln, Nebraska.  What were my takeaways from the day?  Here they are in #LiveSZNKickoff: Scotty B’s Sunday Notebook!


Hoopstars 17U Fall to Nebraska Supreme

The morning began with the Illinois Hoopstars suffering their only loss in their 4-1 weekend as they fell to Nebraska Supreme 72-62.  It was another strong performance for new Illinois commit AJ Storr.  The 2022 6’6” wing continued his monster productive weekend by hitting deep threes, throwing down transition dunks, and getting to the rim finishing and-1s.  Has a knack for finishing through and absorbing contact at the rim.  He really excels in the open floor as a finisher.  The stock with Normal Community 6’7” forward Zach Cleveland continues to go up.  Overall skill set is impressive at his size being able to score inside and out.  Plus passer for a four man and is a solid rebounder.  Low-majors and mid-majors should be keeping tabs.


Buddy Buckets 17U Trio Lead Way

Nice weekend for Team Buddy Buckets 17U in Lincoln.  Their trio of stars stepped up in their 84-64 win on Sunday morning.  They have two fire throwers in the backcourt with JV Seat
