While this 13U group is just finishing up the seventh grade, there was still plenty of talent in the field. With teams in the group from all across the Midwest from Missouri to Michigan, there was tons of competition at the 13U level.

Max Chan – 2026 – F – WI Blizzard
As skilled wing forward with a good all-around game. He impressed most with his smooth jumper knocking down shots off the catch and dribble from all over. As well to scoring with his jumper he has a nice passing ability, plays with a good motor defensively, and is a tough and active rebounder. 

Damareay Davis – 2026 – F – Mac Irvin Fire
Davis is a strong and powerful forward. He was constantly using his strong build to overpowers defenders and score around the basket. Any time he got the ball near the basket, he used his physical tools and finished right through defenders. He also showed the ability to put the ball on the floor as well to having a big motor. 

Jack Janda – 2026 – F – Reach Legends
At 6’5”, Janda was a dominant force for his team throughout the weekend. He was just bigger and strong than the competition to take over the paint. He was one of the more productive rebounders that just grabbed everything near him. He is a strong finisher inside that scored posting up but can also handle the ball and showed good offensive skills. 

Kain McCaskill – 2026 – G – Yanders Law
A skilled two-way guard that was one of the top playmakers in the 13U field. He’s an efficient scorer, especially going to the basket but also distributed the ball well. McCaskill does a very good job defending the ball with the ability to apply good pressure on the ball. 

Jayden Paul – 2026 – G – Hoopstars 
A quality playmaking point guard that is tough to stick with off the dribble and showed a good scoring ability over the weekend. Paul is a highly elusive guard with his great handle and moves. He excels at getting into the paint and creating for himself and his teammates. 

AJ Perkins – 2026 – G – IL Flight
A long and athletic wing guard that was shooting the ball at a high level from three. Even with plenty of defensive attention on him he was knocking down threes extremely well but can also drive the ball to score in bunches. He is also a tough perimeter defender with all his tools and did a nice job forcing turnovers. 

Josiah Pouncy – 2026 – G/F – Kentucky Defenders
The wing played well on both ends of the floor. He is a tough perimeter defender that proved to be very tough to beat off the dribble with his quickness. Pouncy is very versatile with his size and skill. He has good handle plus a smooth jumper to knock down shots from the outside. 

Noah Rankin – 2026 – G – Mac Irvin Fire
Rankin is a skilled and athletic point guard that scored the ball at a very high level but can also distribute it out. With his good handle and moves he was getting into the paint often and finishing at a high rate there. Though he is an unselfish player that was always looking for the open man. 

Jon Roberts – 2026 – G – IL Flight
A smart point guard that plays with good energy and knows how to play. He’s a good downhill player that is strong with the ball and gets into the paint to finish inside or distribute it out. On the opposite end, he is a very good on ball defender that sticks with opposing guards well. 

Geno Seets – 2026 – F – Reach Legends
The 6’2” wing forward had one of the more impressive performances in the title game, knocking down four threes in the first half alone. He has great jumper, hitting tough contested shots with defenders all over him and can also handle the ball. Seets plays with a big motor and really works on the glass and defensive end. 

Owen Weiss – 2026 – G – Yanders Law
Weiss impressed the most with his perimeter shooting but showed a good overall game. He has a nice-looking jumper and hit shots at a high percentage spotting up on the perimeter and even a couple steps beyond it. He can also play with the ball in his hands and is a tough perimeter defender. 

Jack Wilderman – 2026 – G – Mid Pro Academy
One of the top scorers at the 13U level who scored it extremely well attacking the basket. He continuously showed great shifty moves off the dribble to always be getting by his man and quickly to the basket. Once he got in the paint, Wilderman showed a very good ability to finish in traffic. Plus, he showed a nice overall skill set and was able to get plenty done on both ends of the floor.
