The annual Kings of the Court Classic in Des Moines took place over the weekend of May 14-16. While we weren’t able to attend in person, we will be checking out a majority of the 16U and 17U teams over the next few weeks via Baller TV. Below is a look at the 16U Play4Him Academy White team. We watched their game against Beyond Ball 24K.


Will Orness (Humboldt)

A 5-10 scoring guard who can play with or without the ball in his hands, Orness led P4H with 22 points, showing he can score from all three levels. He moves well off the ball, using off-ball screens to create space, and he has a quick release on his jumper off the catch. 


Brody Poppen (Manson Northwest Webster)

Poppen is a 6-4, physical interior presence on both ends of the floor. He sets good, hard screens and rolls to the paint. He showed good hands, and he rebounds fairly well on both ends of the floor. I'd like to see him become more assertive on both ends of the floor because it looks like there is some talent here.
