The All-Academic Basketball Derby presented by West Coast Elite made its stop in Sin City. The event, which takes place at the Tarkanian Basketball Academy, runs from Friday, May 28th and concludes on Saturday, May 29th. In this article, we take a look at some of the standouts from Day 1. 

Jake Pike 6’7 SF Houston, TX 2023 - Pike is an athletic lefty with fluid lateral movement and good ball skills. He attacked the rim all day, while simultaneously showing the ability to create plays for teammates. Pike impressed all the coaches in attendance, including Carrol College which is quoted as being "extremely interested" in the c/o 2023 prospect. Pike is a 4.0 student that has already scored 1390 on his SAT’s. 

Angel Sonnier 5’11 PG Houston, TX 2023 - Sonnier was one of the top PG’s at the event. He was a terror on the defensive end, getting deflections and steals, and turning them into easy baskets. On the offensive side of the ball, he showed good quickness and blow-by ability, getting to the rim off the bounce, and using his float game when he couldn’t get all the way to the rim. The jitterbug PG is 3.6
