On July 3rd-4th I attended the Brawl for the Ball Prep Hoops Circuit at Inspire Courts in Gilbert. AZ. The event featured 40 teams from the 15U-17U divisions. 

Players shine at different times during these events and we can only comment on what we saw when they played in front of us. 


Here were some of top 2023 forwards from the Brawl for the Ball:

Andreas Engholm PF 6’7 Olympia/WA (Roots Academy) 

-A face-up four-man who can score it from inside and out. He can shoot it from elbow and in plus extend out to the 3pt line. He can post up his man with power moves plus fade away and shoot it. He rebounds well with his length and strength. 

Carter Gittens Carter Gittens 6'5" | SF Sunrise Mountain | 2023 State AZ Sunrise Mountain (Factory 2023) (Pictured) 

-A long forward keeps impressing each event. He has athleticism, length and improving skill. He attacked the basket and got on the glass for extra possessions and put backs. He is one of those instant eye catchers when he plays well. He plays hard on both ends of the floor and is becoming a valuable asset for the Mustangs.
