Quick Take: There has never been a ton of doubt about his talent level, and Russell showed all of his natural ability during the event. Russell was shooting the ball very well and also got to the rim and used his athleticism. Still growing and maturing, Russell is one of the premier players in the 2014 class, and he did nothing to hurt his stock during this impressive weekend.

Quick Take:This was a huge weekend for Wilson. He had the home court advantage playing in Milwaukee and showed a very improved game. He is more athletic than ever, and is showing signs of being a better shooter as well as someone who is more advanced at getting to the rim. Wilson went against the best guards in the tournament and more than held his own and really improved his stock.

Quick Take: This is another top player in the 2014 class. He has grown in the last year physically and with his game. Looney is at his best breaking his man down off the dribble, and with his size and athleticism there just aren't many people in high school basketball who can guard him one-on-one. Also his jump shot is starting to look better, it was a big time weekend for Looney.

Quick Take:There are very few better scorers in the 2013 class than Rathan-Mayes. He isn't a great athlete, is slightly undersized for his position, and isn't very quick, but the bottom line is he just gets buckets. A big time shot maker, Rathan-Mayes put on a show all weekend and showed why so many colleges are vying for his services.

Quick Take: There aren't many better shooters on the wing than Stephens. With his length and quick release he is able to get his shot off against virtually any defense, and all weekend long he was pure with his stroke. Also Stephens showed improved ability to rebound the basketball and got to the rim some off the dribble.

Quick Take: This is one of the most skilled players in the 2013 class on the interior. Not a great athlete, Berry makes up for it with a ton of intelligence and a great feel for how to play. On the post his footwork is second to none, and then also he does a good job of passing and can set up an entire offense. Overall Berry was very productive and showed his unique game and why he can be so difficult to defend.

Recruiting: Committed to Butler

Size: 7-9/260 |
Quick Take: There are very few more athletically and physically gifted post players in high school basketball. Alexander has great hands, a nice touch around the rim, and is a beast rebounding the basketball. Add in that he plays hard and loves to dominate, and Alexander was one of the most consistent and best players around all weekend long.
