PH Live in Kansas City lived up to the hype and lived up to the excitement that we expected from it. Take a look at the Prep Hoops Live: All 17U Team!
Taison Chatman Taison Chatman 6'3" | SG Totino-Grace | 2023 State #22 Nation MN (D1 Minnesota), 2023.
D1 Minnesota bounced back from a tough weekend in Chicago and went 4-1 in Kansas City beating a tough slate of opponents. Chatman teamed with Iowa State committed guard Tamin Lipsey (first weekend of play for Lipsey) and defeated shoe teams from Texas Impact, Dallas Showtyme, and Team Lavine. Chatman’s beautiful level of skill led D1 Minnesota with 17 points to the win over Impact securing a good win. Chatman handled, scored, and late in games made some big defensive plays completing victories.
Conwell led EG10 to a 4-5 weekend and then immediately the phone started ringing. Virginia Tech, Belmont, and Toledo were among the schools that called and rightfully so. His lefty attack was often unstoppable including the 17 he had against D1 Minnesota and 26 against the Tulsa Hawks. Few controlled the game like Cornwell this week. One of the top up and coming 2022 guards in the country.
Kevin Overton (Buddy Buckets), 2022.
The term “three level scorer” is often used recklessly but this weekend Kevin Overton scored at the arc, off the bounce from mid-range, and at the cup leading Buddy Buckets to four victories. Overton has a pretty lefty touch but more impressive is his efficiency. Rarely does Overton take a bad shot and he commonly sets up his attempts with the perfect off ball movement. Had 23 points in a big win over Team Lavine.
AJ Storr (Illinois Hoop Stars), 2022.
We may as well call AJ Storr “The Mainstay” when it comes to this article because every weekend he brings game in bulk. A 26 point per game average going against a full slate of talented shoe teams. The Storr combination of power, handles, and soft touch after the lift looks to have top 50 in the nation level potential.
Jason Thirdkill Jr (Dallas Showtyme), 2022
One of the elite performances of the weekend was the 25 points and 12 rebounds that Thirdkill had shooting 10 of 12 from the field against the Hoopstars in a battle to the end. Thirdkill produced with the jumper, with a massive putback, and some great defense in that victory, as well as several others. Showtyme played four close games and won three of them in KC. At 6-foot-8 Thirdkill did everything that both a top small forward and a top power forward would do. So versatile and always active.
Leland Walker Leland Walker 5'11" | PG North Central | 2022 State #145 Nation IN (Team Teague), 2022.
If you attacked the cup this weekend you had success and this weekend nobody went to the rim like Leland Walker Leland Walker 5'11" | PG North Central | 2022 State #145 Nation IN of Team Teague. Walker exploded for 31 points to get the final win of the event highlighting the weekend but that shifty basket attack was just as crucial going to the rim scoring five times in half one against D1 Minnesota. Pound for pound they didn’t get any better than Walker at PH Live.
