Boy’s basketball games will be getting underway throughout Minnesota this week, and NHR takes a look ahead at some of the top individual player matchups to keep an eye on!

Jamal Ambrose Jamal Ambrose 6'10" | C Eastview | 2022 State MN (Eastview) vs Brady Nicholson Brady Nicholson 6'9" | C Chaska | 2022 State MN (Chaska)

Plenty of talent on the floor for this one, and it’s also a chance to see two of the top senior post players in the state face off! Jamal will have a bigger role this season after Eastview graduated some talented seniors, and his size and scoring touch will be key for his team. At about 6’10 he can step out and hit threes, score with his back to the basket, and this fall he also showed he can elevate and throw down in traffic. Brady Nicholson Brady Nicholson 6'9" | C Chaska | 2022 State MN is a polished big for Chaska who can do a bit of everything. Like Jamal he can stretch the floor from deep, and he also has the physicality to back defenders into deep position and score over the top using his length. An exciting way to get things kicked off for these two teams on Friday night!
