NY2LA Swish N Dish: Breakout Performers

Headed by Nick Noskowiak, here is a look at six guys who really emerged on the radar at the NY2LA Swish N Dish.

Size: 6-2/170 |
Quick Take: Noskowiak will be someone who could be in contention to crack the rankings when they are updated and expanded for the class of 2015. He is a heady guard who can really score and also knows how to make others better. His understanding of the game is impressive, and he makes tough plays at big times. His basketball IQ and scoring acumen helped his team go far in the event.

Size: 7-8/190 |
Quick Take: A skilled power forward with size and the ability to make shots, Schwartz really opened up eyes with his play. He can put the ball on the ground a little bit, but it is shooting stroke and size with it that is so impressive. If he shows a greater desire to rebound the ball his stock will absolutely take off.

Size: 6-2/170 |
Quick Take: Buzz had been building in the Windy City over McCloud during the high school and he proved to be someone more than worthy of the praise. McCould is athletic, can score, and knows how to get to the rim. He needs to be a better decision maker at times, but with some refinement to his game there is no doubt he will be on the mid-major radar and with his play it is possible some high-majors could step up and offer.

Size: 7-6/185 |
Quick Take: In the class of 2016 there aren't going to be many wings who come close to matching what Beck can do with his size and athleticism. Beck was impossible to guard and simply played volleyball on the glass if he missed a shot. The upside is huge here for Beck as he continues to grow as a player it should be fun to watch his development.

Recruiting: Dayton, Ohio State, Xavier

Size: 7-8/205 |
Quick Take: Odiase has legit size to play down low, can score a little bit, and is a good rebounder. Add in solid hands, and it is surprising that he was so far under the radar before this event. He is still raw and has a ways to go, but with a lack of bigs in the Midwest in the 2014 class it won't be too long before offers start coming in.

Recruiting: Loyola Chicago, Tennessee, Valparaiso, Western Illinois, Northern Kentucky

Size: 6-1/165 |
Quick Take: The point guard of a team that dominated the state of Wisconsin at the high school level, Bearden was great in the event. He can really score it, and has the ball on a string with his handle. His ability to read and use ball screens is impressive, and then he has a good understanding of what to do when he gets into the lane. An improvement on defense is needed, but Bearden definitely can play.
