I thought there was good depth at every age group and adequate competition on every court. 

 

Here are some more 2023 standouts:

Derek Stanley Derek Stanley 6'4" | PF Cibola | 2023 AZ Cibola (Pictured)

A junior forward who scores it primarily inside with efficiency. He has sneaky bounce and stays active to rebound the ball. He will score on put backs off of a rebound plus block shots in his area. He should help the Raiders in the paint. 

Memphis James Memphis James 6'2" | SF Coconino | 2023 AZ Coconino

Vincent Parise Vincent Parise 5'10" | CG Desert Mountain | 2023 State AZ Desert Mountain

Parise shot the ball a little better from the 3pt line with range this event. He is best shooting off the catch and can drive
