The 2019 Generation Next Tip-Off had 11U-14U teams from around the Midwest competing against one another for some early winter championship glory.

Allen-Hernandez played a key role in helping his team advance to the tournament finale by being a threat to score from all over.  He was able to score some buckets when driving by defenders with good handles, but was most effective with his shooting and keeping the defense on its heels as he went off for 15 points in a game Sunday, which included 3 treys.

He consistently led his team scoring including a big 19-point effort.

Bryce Bolio – 2024 – G/F – Iowa Elite
Bolio was a constant threat to score for his team anytime he had the ball in his hands. He showed he can score off the catch out on the perimeter or off the pull-up with his handle getting himself to spots on the floor where he could get by the defender or get them off balance and score scoring over them. He hit 6 three’s Saturday night in a game and tallied 24 points. 

Tayshawn Bridges – 2024 – G – Team Takeover
