Mading has strong showing
One of the most talented players at the John Lucas Midwest Invitational was 2017 forward Daniel Mading. What stood out about Mading’s game? At 6-foot-9, Mading raced end-to-end and showed impressive athleticism. But he also made plays around the basket and showed good touch. “I just try to be a mismatch on the court with the bigs,” Mading told Scout.com. “I try to stretch the floor a lot and just help my team.” Mading, who played his summer ball with Team Believe out of Washington, D.C., said the next step in his development is getting stronger and adding consistency to his jump shot. At this stage, Mading holds scholarship offers from LSU, Kansas State, Boise State, Texas Tech and James Madison. Florida, Ohio and a handful of others have also shown interest.
