The Platform in Birmingham produced some tremendous performances and elite level talent was on display across the massive arena. This list will look at some of the rock solid players from the weekend who took part in the event that I was able to catch.


Edwim Mercado, 6’ Point Guard, Florida Express Hoops, 2023: Mercado was a vocal leader and displayed a competitive edge all weekend. In the games I was able to catch he was consistently good in the pick and roll game getting downhill and finishing with some nifty finishes. Also was able to hit some pull up jumpers off of space from screens. Strong stocky body type in the back court with solid ability.


Fred Criqui Fred Criqui 6'7" | C St. Marys | 2022 State KS , 6’7 Forward, SSA Elite 2022 Black, 2022: Criqui continues to rise and garner much deserved attention. The big man had a big weekend posting one double double and finishing with averages in the 4 games hovering around a double double. The highlight game was a 16 and 10 performance against Team HIIT. He crashed the offensive glass in a big way, got to his jump hooks, guarded in the post, and hedged really well.
