The following All-Tournament team consists of players from the eight teams that made the semifinals. Two players from the first place and second place teams were selected and one players was selected from the other six teams.

Harrison Barnes of the All-Iowa Attack Red and K.C. Pump N Run standouts Ricky Kreklow and Trevor Releford deserved mention for their strong play this weekend. Barnes was the leading scorer of the event. Kreklow showed off his strong outside shooting touch and underrated passing skills, while teammate Releford was nearly unstoppable with his penetration and passing abilities.
