I woke up to a tree blocking my only exit off the street, so I arrived a bit late to the Field House on Saturday. I was glad to get out of the house and into some air conditioning and have lighting and WiFi at my disposal. I hope everyone stayed safe last night, and the worst we all have to deal with is a few days without power. I spent the day watching the 16U and 17U divisions, and saw some much improved offensive play from yesterday. Here are the 16U standouts:

Ethan Wiley | Sal Elite

Wiley set the tone for Sal Elite with his energy on the defensive end. He made ball-handlers uneasy, causing them to dribble it off their own foot or force an ill-advised pass. He was active off ball, too, causing deflections and denying the ball. The Omaha South junior has a smooth jumper too. He was almost automatic shooting off the catch, but also showed some nice footwork on his stepbacks.

The first play I saw from Hamilton today was a 3/4 court dime in transition through traffic to a streaking teammate. That was
