Darrin Ames Darrin Ames 6'0" | PG Kenwood | 2023 State #71 Nation IL (Kenwood)

Ames had the best outing of anyone all day.  The Kenwood star point guard showed out with an array of high-major head coaches in the front row watching.  The lefty made a super strong case to take the top spot that was vacated by his former teammate.  Ames was straight money from three going 7-9 from distance in the game.  Known more as a volume scorer but he was extremely efficient in this game going 11-16 overall.  Mixed in his stellar shooting form deep with slick takes and playing off his defense in transition.  Looked the part of a #1 player in a 30 point performance where he also racked up 3 dimes and 4 steals.


Davius Loury Davius Loury 6'7" | PF Kenwood | 2023 State #145 Nation IL (Kenwood)

Loury was almost as good for Kenwood.  The top 5 2023 prospect drained 4-8 from distance.  When the face up four is shooting it that well he is about unstoppable to defend.  Shot it
