Game after game players from the 12U greatly impressed with their play at the Generation Next Invitational. In addition to the top performers from the age group, here are several others that greatly impressed. 

Kyle Hunter – G – The Family 

Hunter is a skilled guard that not only scores it well but is also a tough defender. He plays with good energy on the defensive end and with his quickness and length showed the ability and tools to be a lock down perimeter. On the other end he plays well with the ball and was often getting all the way to the basket and finishing at a high rate there. 

Ziah Huskisson – G – Yanders Law

With his size and skills, Huskisson was a very impactful player on both ends of the floor. Offensively, he ran the point effectively. He has good handle and moves off the dribble to get to the basket well and create for himself and others. On the other end he played big defensively guarding down well in the paint versus opposing forwards and posts.  

Parker Ninnemen – F – Chapman Basketball

A lengthy and highly active forward with a good all-around game and knows how to play. He just did a bit of everything for his team, making tons of winning plays. Ninnemen scored it well down in the paint, can handle the ball, made some good passes, played tough defense, and battled hard on the glass. 

Joshua Reed Jr. – G/F – HKBT

Reed is an athletic wing with some size and strength that can do a bit of everything. He has a nice blend of size and skill. A very tough defender that can matchup with multiple positions very well in addition to being big on the glass. He handles the ball well and showed a good ability to make plays off the dribble getting into the paint. 

Luke Scheuren – PF – 24Up

With his size and great length, Schueren was one of the top shot blockers at the 12U level of the tournament. Just a great paint protector with good instincts that was shutting down the interior defensively. On the other he scored it on a good amount of his paint touches showing good touch and moves around the basket. 

Will Still – G – Ray Allen Select

In the 12U title game, Still had himself a tremendous performance. The guard scored it well on all three levels. While he was at his best getting to the basket with all his moves, he also knocked down shots in the mid-range and from three. He is also a good decision maker with the ball in his hands. 

Noah Vantholen – G – All In Athletics

A very versatile guard that can do so much on the floor. He has good size and length with his skills and plays smart with the ball in his hands. He is strong with the ball in his hands and plays well attacking the basket creating for himself and teammates. On the other end he showed a good ability to defend anyone on the floor with all his tools.  

Jayvion Winchester – PG – Dream Chasers Elite

Winchester is a great playmaker with his ability on both ends. He has incredible quickness and uses it well pressuring the ball and forcing turnovers as well as blowing by his man and getting to the basket. He is an up-tempo player with good vision that is always looking to push the ball and did a very good job of creating baskets from turnovers.
