This is the first of several Prep Hoops events in the Midwest as we converge onto the Grit Region Finals in Indianapolis at the end of the month. There were a ton of very intriguing games over the weekend, and now, let’s take a look at some of the Standouts from the state of Minnesota.

Bettis is a smaller power forward, but he plays very physically and has a pretty high basketball IQ. On the inside, he works hard to get into a good post position, and he has good touch in the paint and around the rim. Bettis also showed off a nice little stop and pop from the mid-range to know down the mid-range. He’s not going to be the biggest player, but he works hard which allows him to make up for some of his lack of size. Look for Bettis to be a stock riser during his junior season.
