On June 9th-11th I attended the 15th annual Best in Basketball Summer Invitational at Mesquite HS. 24 teams from around the state competed for the three days. There were 22 AIA teams with two prep teams. 

 

In this article we look at the 5th team All-Invitational from the weekend.

Demarion Anderson Demarion Anderson 5'9" | PG Phhoenix Prep | 2023 State AZ Phhoenix Prep

A scoring lead guard with a flashy handle and speed. He can hit the catch and shoot three with deeper range then last year. He made multiple difficult shots for and-1’s including a 4-point play over the three days. He sees plays developing quickly and can throw the pass. He transferred over from Agua Fria and should have a big year.  

Zane Gaul Zane Gaul 6'9" | C Prescott | 2025 State AZ Prescott 

The big man from up North is a load inside to deal with. He rebounds and blocks shots in the paint. He can score it around the hoop but is slowly started to face-up to the three point line and expanding his game. He keeps the ball high and can find an open teammate after the double. He runs the court well and defends best closest to the basket.
