The Best of the Best from the Prep Hoops Circuit Cream City Collision. The 17U All Tournament Team.
Quentin Bolton Quentin Bolton 6'5" | SF Shoreland Lutheran | 2021 State WI Sr of Wisconsin Playground PH (WI). Bolton had an outstanding weekend as a 6’6 versatile forward leading PGC PH to a 3-1 record. Multiple double-doubles, a buzzer beating incredible make that was maybe the highlight of the event, and constant production that has us thinking that we will hear more about this 2021 in the near future. Finished his weekend with 26 and 12 versus Playmakers South. Strong, skilled, and explosive, Bolton was one of the toughest players to match-up with at the event.
Nick Burke Nick Burke 6'5" | PF Southwest Christian | 2022 State MN of WOTN (MN). WOTN went 4-1 on the weekend with consistent team basketball that few teams could match. Burke’s consistency as a scorer and ability to make a key basket when his team needed it really stood out. Burke, a 6’5 2022 forward, twice hit four threes in a game this weekend and he produced double figure numbers four times (high of 22). Scored in the clutch against PGC and was consistent with the touch for three straight days.
Mike Erbeck of Illinois Stars (IL). Erbeck, a 6-foot-1 2021 guard, has had an excellent spring leading the Stars to 20 wins overall and a 3-1 record at the Cream City Collision. Erbeck’s gift is his shooting touch and few players in the Prep Hoops Circuit are shooting it at the same level. Erbeck’s headliner was the eight three point make game that totaled into a 32 point outing (plus seven boards). What made Erbeck so tough to guard was the range on that touch. He forced players multiple steps above the arc and sometimes that wasn’t enough.
Noah Fedderson of Wisconsin Playmakers (WI). The Playmakers this weekend, undefeated. Noah Fedderson, nearly unstoppable. That right there is grounds for an All Tournament Team selection. Fedderson is a 6-foot-9 2022 post from Menomonie, Wisconsin that combines skill with agility and constant effort. His ability to spin to an angle, or move without the ball, catch, and find a spot to complete was eye-opening. A very difficult big to defend.
Joseph Fitch Joseph Fitch 6'8" | PF Christian Homeschool Assn. | 2022 State IL of Illini Magic (IL). Joseph Fitch Joseph Fitch 6'8" | PF Christian Homeschool Assn. | 2022 State IL had to be one of the top couple prospects that was at the Milwaukee event this weekend. His 6’8 size (2022 forward) was already tough enough to deal with but the way Fitch ran the floor ahead of the pack to make plays on both ends has us thinking bigger things. In addition to the regular pow lost numbers, Fitch stepped out and hit jumpers at times, and that face-up elbow attack to the cup late in a close game is a play that I won’t soon forget.
Noah Howard of Wisconsin Focus (WI). The Focus went 4-0 for the weekend led by Noah Howard, a 2022 point guard. The Focus hasn’t lost a game all month (14-0 in May) and Howard secured that record when he took the game over against Old Gold putting a good chunk of his 25 points in the book down the stretch. The 5’11 guard from Lake County Lutheran is a 40% Club card carrying member (hit 41.5 percent of his threes this winter) and was the team MVP after a great weekend.
