The Prep Hoops Circuit was back in town this weekend for the Hustle in the Sun at Inspire Court in Gilbert, AZ. There were 65 teams from the 15-17U levels. 


I am focusing a lot on the 2024 class this week, since it is obviously the class I know the least about due to COVID, and many didn’t play varsity yet or even have a season. 


Here were some of the top 2024 guards who stood out:

Gabe Pickens Gabe Pickens 5'10" | PG Millennium | 2024 State AZ (AZ Select 2024-1)

-The MOP of 15U did seemingly everything for his undefeated team. He was one of the top defensive guards at the event which normally led to scores. What impressed me was his passing skills. He is a rare pure PG keeping his head up looking to make a play. He is one of the stronger guards of his age and uses it to get into the lane. His 3pt shot was on this weekend as well during stretches. 

Braeden Speed Braeden Speed 6'3" | CG Brophy Prep | 2024 State AZ (AZ Select 2024-1)

-Arguably the top defensive freshman guard at the event. He has great size, good length and quick hands and feet. He changes speeds to get into the lane and finishes off
