As well to a long list of top performers, there were plenty of others having themselves great weekends. The talent from the 14U Generation Next Invitational keeps on coming. 

Tray Alford – 2027 – PG – Illinois Flight

While not even in high school yet, Alford already has advanced point guard tools. He is a very skilled passer that sees the floor well and has good handle. A quick decision maker that was often getting into the paint with his good moves off the dribble and looks to distribute the ball. A highly active player that was all over the court making winning plays. 

Aiden Avila – 2027 – F – LVL Elite

Avila showed a good ability to score the ball with a 16-point game on Friday but also proved to be one of the better rebounders of the tournament. The tough forward stands at 6’1” and outworks and outmuscles players to grab every board near him. He plays very active and is highly impactful in the paint on both ends. 

Dawson Charles – 2027 – G/F – Powerhouse Sports

A versatile and impactful player with his size, quickness, and athleticism who can do a bit of everything. The wing showed the ability to defend nearly anyone on the floor with his advanced physical tools. A slasher on the other ends who was finishing very effectively around the paint. 

Jayce Cook – 2027 – G – 24Up

One of the more skilled guards of the Generation Next Invitational. The 5’10” guard has such a pure jumper from the outside but is also a high IQ playmaker with the ball in his hands even at a young age. He was consistently scoring the ball in the double digits throughout the tournament with his offensive skill set helping his team make it to the quarterfinals before falling to the eventual champions. 

Pavle Djilas – 2027 – G/F – Team Herro

There are many different aspects to like from the game of the 6’2” wing. He has good size, length, and skills. Djilas is a versatile scorer as he can play off the dribble and has a smooth jumper from the outside. He also showed a good passing ability and can defend multiple positions. 

Griffen Karchinski – 2027 – F – Wisconsin Blizzard

The 6’2” forward had a highly impressive performance on Saturday with a 16-point winning effort. As well to having some size he plays with good toughness and strength scoring the ball through contact around the basket but is a good spot up shooter from the perimeter. An efficient scorer who uses all his tools to his advantage but also impressed with his rebounding and interior defensive play. 

Jack Kohnen – 2027 – SF – Chapman Basketball Academy

One of a few players from this talented CBA group that had themselves a big weekend. There is already plenty to like about his game as he has plenty of size on the wings at 6’5” with good length to go along with a well-rounded skill set. An effective player around the paint on both ends but his at his best as a slasher. He also impacts the game greatly with his rebounding, passing and energy. 

Austin Luchetti – 2027 – PF – Wisconsin Swing

Throughout the tournament, Luchetti had multiple games helping the Swing advances to the quarterfinals with some impressive wins along the way. He started the tournament with a 19-point game and continued to roll from there. He has good size standing at 6’4” with some strength and all-around game. For his size, he played very well off the dribble with good moves attacking the basket but also showed some strong moves in the post scoring inside.
