Krause: Chase Thompson, Shiloh Robinson among standouts at Jared Andersen basketball camp

Omaha Westside's Chase Thompson scored 38 points in two games Saturday.


Saturday was the first and only day of the Jared Andersen team camp, but many teams that participated played elsewhere Friday.

Among the teams that participated were Bellevue West, Blair, Boys Town, Council Bluffs St. Albert, Elkhorn South, Grand Island Northwest, Gretna, Kearney, Lincoln East, Lincoln Southwest, Omaha Creighton Prep, Omaha Roncalli, Omaha Westside and Treynor.

2019 Elkhorn South wing Tage Berendes: With the absence of Jace Piatkowski, Berendes stepped into the wing scorer role well for Elkhorn South. He put his offensive skills on display, scoring 44 points across three games from all over the floor. He also had some offensive help from 2021 guard Preston Murphy and 2020 forward Zach LaFave.

2019 Omaha Westside forward Chase Thompson: With a short bench Saturday, Westside called it a day after two games after also participating in the Papillion-La Vista South Jam on Friday.

Against Kearney, Thompson knocked down four straight 3-pointers and finished with 20 points. Against Lincoln Southwest, Thompson did more of his work inside, finishing with 18 on a combination of drives and post touches.

2019 Kearney forward Shiloh Robinson: Robinson capped his weekend in Omaha with a 21-point performance, including 19 in the second half, in a loss against Bellevue West. Robinson, with a combination of skill and athleticism, showed why he is one of the top recruits in the 2019 class.

2019 Lincoln East forward Wes Dreamer: The Elmwood-Murdock transfer is going to make a big impact for the Spartans as a senior. At 6-foot-6, his length and versatility makes him a tough cover as he is fluid enough to put the ball on the floor and get by bigs, but is tough for smaller defenders to keep off the glass.

Dreamer had a double-double with 18 points and 10 boards — plus two assists, two steals and a block — in a win over Omaha Creighton Prep. He led the Spartans again with 15 points, seven rebounds and a block against Elkhorn South.

2020 Gretna forward Ely Doble: Doble has impressed in June, and his performance Saturday was no different. He will be asked to do many things for Gretna, and showed that he is more than capable of handling the scoring load with 31 points in two games.

2019 Blair wing Joe Manchester: For a very talented (but inconsistent) Blair group, the Bears can often count on Joe Manchester for at least 15 points, and that was true Saturday. In two games, Manchester poured in a combined 39 points.

2019 Omaha Creighton Prep point guard Robert Peters: Peters carried his strong play from Friday's Papillion-La Vista South Jam to Saturday’s camp. The lightning-quick, 5-7 guard led the Junior Jays in scoring against both Lincoln East and Gretna. He shot 5 of 5 for 15 points in the first game, and 8 of 12 for 20 points in the second.

He showed off an uncanny knack for finishing at the rim with or without contact and proved he could spot up and knock down perimeter shots as well.

2020 Omaha Creighton Prep wing Spencer Schomers: Schomers stepped up with a handful of normal starters missing for the Junior Jays and finished in double figures against both Lincoln East (13) and Gretna (19). Schomers is typically more of a spot-up shooter — and he did shoot a combined 6 of 13 from deep — but the 6-4 wing also hit a couple mid-range shots off the dribble, and got to the rim a few times to finish or draw contact for a shot at free throws. Schomers also contributed on the glass, tallying five boards each game.
