MBCA Top Performers Part 5

We spent June 17th-18th evaluating the talent at the Midwest Showcase hosted by the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association. This was an evaluation weekend for college coaches, including the D1 coaches. Here are some players that had a good weekend.

Xavier Wilson, 2025, 6’7 Forward

One of our favorite prospects in the building, Wilson is a longer wing/forward. His upside is through the roof as he moves his feet well on the defensive end and is an advanced passer on offense. It’s rare to see players of this age and size displaying those two qualities. 

Nicholas Randall, 2025, 6’9 Forward

Another Vashon product. Randall has the size of a center but the game of a faceup four man. He’s good at attacking the rim, using fakes, and shows touch both at the line and from 15 feet. Has power 5 offers. 

Curtis Stinson, 2025, 6’4 Guard

Big PG with feel and a top notch skillset. Stinson looks to be one of the better prospects in the state of Iowa right now, and in the future. There’s a lot to like from this young floor general. 

Clayton Parker, 2025, 6’6 Forward

Stretch forward from Montgomery County, MO. Fundamentally sound player who makes an impact through his floor spacing and off-ball movement. Scored it in a variety of ways.

Kennard Davis Jr., 2023, 6’6 Wing

Quite possibly one of the top prospects in Missouri, Davis is a hard nosed and athletic wing. He’s got the ability to shut down the opposing team’s top player. Evolving offensive skill set. Holds mid-major offers currently. 

Nassir Binion, 2024, 6’3 Guard (pictured)

EXPLOSIVE. Binion gets to the front of the rim in a blur and can jump with anybody at this showcase. Good perimeter defender who applies serious ball pressure. Tons of upside with Nassir Binion and he’s been trending in the right direction this summer. 

Josiah Dotzler, 2023, 6’2 Guard

Lefty floor general with a smooth stroke from three. Creates using great change of pace. Confident with the ball and looks to make plays for others. High level prospect out of Nebraska.

MBCA Top Performers Part 4

We spent June 17th-18th evaluating the talent at the Midwest Showcase hosted by the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association. This was an evaluation weekend for college coaches, including the D1 coaches. Here are some players that had a good weekend.

Kyle Pock, 2023, 6’7 Wing

Pock is one of the more well-rounded players at the MBCA showcase. He’s got good size for his position, shoots the ball well, and understands the game beyond his years. Division 1 caliber prospect.

Ramzi Salem, 2024, 6’3 Guard

Salem is a smooth operator with good size at the PG position. He operates well and creates shots in the mid-range. His size and offensive creativity are hard not to notice.

Jayden Renfrow, 2024, 6’7 Wing

Blessed with great length, Renfrow has a ton of upside as a college small forward. He’s versatile on the defensive end switching onto multiple positions and is a smooth slasher with the ball. Shows flashes often.

Dillon Duff, 2025, 6’2 Guard

An aggressive, tough-minded scoring guard. Duff is a great shooter off the bounce who also uses the glass well around the rim. He commands the floor and guards with good strength on the perimeter for his age. 

Corbin Allen, 2025, 6’4 Guard (pictured)

Allen has been playing up 17u in our circuit and it showed at this event. He’s mature beyond his years and knows how to play the game the right way. He’s a guard with a quick first step who can also stop on a dime. Great long-term prospect that earned his first D1 offer this spring. 

Isaiah Atwater, 2023, 5’10 Guard

Atwater is an elite passer and somebody who’s really running the show this morning. He organizes his team and brings a level of confidence to the floor. Smaller guard, but plays with a big heart. A prospect who’s very fun to watch.

Landon Braun, 2023, 6’6 Wing

Athletic wing prospect who explodes to the rim on straight-line drives and passes well. Braun is versatile on the defensive end and has plus size for his position.

2022 Edwardsville Live Showcase Top Performers

The opening day of the Edwardsville Live Showcase did not disappoint. Here are a few standouts from the opening day:

Kennard Davis, 2023, Vashon – Player of the day on Friday!

The most impressive performer of the day! Kennard’s full game was on display over the weekend. He scored from inside, outside, beyond 3, and had some thunderous dunks. He also showed the capacity to bring the ball down the floor and make plays for his team. He is dynamic in the post where he can finish through contact and displays several post moves.

BJ Ward, 2023, Chaminade

The strong point guard had his full game on display during the 1st day. He scored from inside and beyond the 3. He is a true floor general who can get everyone involved and is a disruptive defensive player. After the day’s performance, BJ picked up an offer from SIUE. Great matchup to start the day going up against Jordan Pickett.

Jordan Pickett, 2023, Belleville East

Pickett picked up where he left off from a good weekend in Chicago. He was scoring at the rim, getting to the free throw line, and was deadly on ball screens.

His defensive intensity was ramped up in a matchup with BJ Ward. He is dynamic in the open floor and has range well beyond the 3. 

Trey Williams, 2025, Vashon

Trey continues to show why he is one of the best 2025 kids not only in the area but in the country. He is automatic from 3 with a quick release and has range. Trey plays very efficiently and doesn’t take bad shots. He is a dynamite defender and is continuing to grow. He makes the right decision with the ball in his hands and can finish at the rim.

Kyan Evans, 2023, Staley

Kyan was very impressive today running his team. He is smooth with the ball, can shoot from deep, and also is a playmaker for his team. Kyan is dynamic in the open court and his basketball IQ is off the charts. This kid oozes with talent. 

Cooper Koch, 2024, Peoria Notre Dame

Smooth 6’8 forward has range from the 3, can put the ball on the floor, and is skilled in the post. Long arms and good feet allow him to be a good defender and be disruptive. 

MBCA Top Performers Part 3

We spent June 17th-18th evaluating the talent at the Midwest Showcase hosted by the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association. This was an evaluation weekend for college coaches, including the D1 coaches. Here are some players that had a good weekend.

Dayton Forsythe, 2024, 6’2 Guard

SHOOTER. Forsythe has a quick release and good lift on his jump shot. He possesses good leadership qualities as well. A winning player who makes winning plays. 

Drew Kingery, 2023, 6’5 Wing

Mr. Versatility. Kingery is a player who does a little bit of everything on the floor. He makes open shots, rebounds well, and can create for others. One of the most productive players in Iowa. He made a big impact in front of a lot of coaches. 

Bo Aldridge, 2023, 6’4 Guard

Aldridge is an explosive athlete who attacks the rim nonstop. The lefty can hang in the air and works angles as well as anybody here. High upside and a major motor for this prospect out of Topeka. 

Colby Lancaster, 2023, 6’7 Forward

Strong post player with good hands and the ability to finish on either side. Solid area rebounder. Lancaster does a good job of protecting the rim and making it difficult for the opposition to get a clean look. 

Avian Webb, 2025, 5’10 Guard

A crafty young playmaker and marksman from deep. He’s hit a couple of long-range shots to start the day. His size doesn’t limit him and he’s got a warrior type of mentality. An exciting young prospect who had a major freshman year in the Metro Kansas City area. 

Stephen Bonner, 2023, 6’3 Guard (pictured)

Confident guard with serious scoring instincts. Bonner plays through contact and attacks his opponent at all times. His game and mentality really stand out in this environment. 

Jadis Jones, 2024, 6’6 Forward

One of the most rugged players in the early session. He’s a lot to deal with around the rim and has a quick second jump. Jones’ game is slowly but surely expanding out to the three point line as of late too. One of the best prospects in Missouri. 

MBCA Top Performer Part 2

We spent June 17th-18th evaluating the talent at the Midwest Showcase hosted by the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association. This was an evaluation weekend for college coaches, including the D1 coaches. Here are some players that had a good weekend.

Cameron Manyawu, 2023, 6’9 Forward (pictured)

Manyawu has been a major stock riser. He’s an agile athlete for his size and can guard multiple positions. Offensively, he can stretch the floor and attacks smaller defenders around the rim. Great long-term potential. 

Collin Perry, 2025, 6’0 Guard

Perry is a strong guard who can really defend and play at a fast tempo. He’s great at finding the gaps with the defense to make plays. Defensively he can really pressure the ball and makes the opposition uncomfortable. Talented 2025.

BJ Ward, 2023, 6’0 Guard

One of the best floor generals in Missouri. Today he showcased an improved jump shot to go along with his intangibles. Overall, he’s a well-rounded prospect who recently received a Division 1 offer from Lindenwood. 

Trey Williams, 2025, 6’0 Guard

Williams was on our radar before he started his HS career and for good reason. He plays with great pace and can shoot the cover off the ball. He’s got a chance to be a star for Tony Irons at Vashon. Recently picked up a Mizzou offer.

Terry McMorris, 2023, 6’7 Wing

McMorris is an elite athlete with a 7+ foot wingspan. He’s an anchor on the defensive end and has great instincts. Offensively he’s raw but works hard while looking to take the rim down. One of the higher potential prospects in the building over the weekend. 

Dylan Golighty, 2023, 6’4 Guard

SCORER. He’s explosive heading toward the rim and is a confident shooter. Takes and makes tough shots in a good way. Talented prospect who excels in this type of showcase setting. 

Anthony Gause, 2024, 6’2 Guard

Scoring guard with a variety of moves and corresponding counters. He’s good at all 3 levels. Gause has been one of the major stock risers in Missouri this summer.
