Eli Hoelz- 5'10" guard- Central MN Cougars/Brainerd

Eli did a great job of playing his role for the Cougars. His team made a deep run in the tournament and he was a big reason as to how they did it. He has a solid pull-up jumper and he knocked down multiple threes. On defense, he did a good job of rotating over for charges and he played very actively with his hands to get plenty of steals. I liked how simple he kept the game and how he never got too high or too low. He never tried to force anything or do too much with the ball in his hands, and he never got down on himself if he made a mistake. I want him to work on his handle so that he can be more confident as a point guard or as the ball-handler in pick-and-roll.
