This week DeLaSalle defeated Hibbing 92-72 in the first round of the state tournament.  What level of prospects did we see?  Prep Hoops gives you the intel now!

Evan Boyd Evan Boyd 6'2" | SG DeLaSalle | 2021 State MN of DeLaSalle.  At 6-foot-2 Boyd stretched the defense scoring 17 points on 6 of 10 shooting.  The Islanders passed the ball in a way that led to constant holes in the Hibbing defense and Boyd was a big part of that (five assists).  I was also really impressed by his defense.  Boyd would make for a great player in the local D3 divisions right now and the way he’s played the second half of his senior year, I see some potential for maybe a D2 roster spot in the future if he keeps improving. 

Casmir Chavis of DeLaSalle.  Chavis is a freshman but the early views have been very positive.  He’s earned himself a role with the Islanders state semi-final rotation learning how to defend early and getting to the cup constantly.  Had a dozen points in the Hibbing win. This is a scholarship player someday, it’s too early to say what that level may be but Chavis is a top freshman in Minnesota.
