The Chicago Summer Challenge was my first weekend exclusively covering the 2024 division. When the weekend began I did not intend to do a 2025 All Tournament team. However the play of these players forced my hand. 

PG- Jake Hansen 5-11 Wauwatosa West (WI) Unlike most of the players on this list. Hansen actually looks his age. But then the ball tips and his advanced backcourt game becomes readily apparent. An excellent outside shot appears to be the strength of his game. But also possesses good ball handling and passing ability. Prospect who played with the Wisconsin Playground Club has a bright future ahead of him. 

SG- Bryce Heard 6-4 Kenwood (IL) Widely considered the top incoming player in the city. Heard lived up to this billing. There really wasn’t much he couldn’t do. Shot it well from deep. Penetrated with both ease and force. When drives were cut off was good at dishing off to open teammates. All on an impressive 6-4 frame. Played with a Mac Irvin Fire unit that was basically all 2025’s. Standout game was a Sunday victory over a good Team Ten Jabari Parker squad. A special prospect to monitor. 

SF Leo Gamez 6-3 Cedar
