A whole lot of 16Us made big impressions on the first day of the Grind Region Memorial Classic in Kansas City.

Here are a handful of players who stood out on Day One (in alphabetical order):

Aadhi Ayyappan Aadhi Ayyappan 6'0" | SG Bartlesville High School | 2023 OK , 6-foot guard, Tulsa Hawks Blue (pictured):

Incredibly fundamental and efficient, Ayyappan was great on Day One. He led the Tulsa club with his brilliant driving and playmaking. He knifes through traffic with a smooth ease, always under control but finding openings to shoot a high percentage. He can also bury the three, but he’s not a ball hog. He keeps his teammates well-supplied with quality dishes for open shots. Ayyappan is a crafty and athletic defender, intercepting passes and knocking balls away from dribblers.

Jaravis Moye, 6-foot-4 guard, Gateway Knights, Kirkwood HS:

A really interesting player, Moye does not seem 6-foot-4 when he’s flashing great ball handling in the open court. He slithers through the lane for scores from a variety of angles. He’s not a big guy, but he’s tough, taking the ball fearlessly into the trees and finishing at the rim. Moye can shoot, makes a lot of nice passes, and has a fiercely competitive spirit.
