Last week I attended The Show Justin Vargas 2023 PlayAz Only showcase.

33 players were invited to the event with everyone playing 3 games each with 4 teams (East, West, North and South). 

7 were brand new for myself with four of them from AZ and the three others may land at a local prep. 


Team North

Mathiang Maker Mathiang Maker 6'7" | SF Dream City Christian | 2023 State AZ Dream City Christian 

-A fluid forward earned the MVP of the event. He is one of the more naturally talented players in the state. He is wildly athletic on the break way above the rim. He can score from all 3 levels and does it with style. He takes long strides into the lane and will flush it down with good body control around traffic. He is a decent 3pt shooter considering how well he does all the other things. He blocks shots in bunches and makes it tough to score on inside. His range on his shooting and his ability to take the ball off the glass and go coast to coast is impressive. Stock up!
