Summer gives Western Kansas players an opportunity to match up with those they don’t get a chance to see during the high school season.

Here are a few players from the farthest western part of the state who are showing what they can do against elite competition (in alphabetical order):

Jaden Boone Jaden Boone 6'3" | SG Quinter | 2022 State KS 6-foot-3 forward, 2022, Quinter, Team Buddy Buckets Kansas:

Boone is a solidly-built and powerful player who is also smooth and athletic enough to move out of the lane and make plays. He runs well and moves on the perimeter, and can handle the ball well enough to push it up-tempo. He’s well established, having earned second-team 1A Div. 1 as a junior. He averaged 18.9 points per game last season.

Servando Gonzalez Servando Gonzalez 5'10" | CG Lakin | 2022 State KS , 5-foot-10 guard, 2022, Lakin, Western Kansas Elite:

Gonzalez brings a lot to the table for Lakin, one of the top 3A programs in the state, where he earned honorable mention last year. He can pop from distance, but is equally willing to drive into the lane to create shots or kick the ball out. He’s athletic, aggressive and tough, which stands out in the high-intensity battles with Western Kansas Elite.
