Millard North's Hunter Sallis was the best player on the floor in his game Thursday night.

The NCAA Basketball Academy West Region features 320 high school players from 16 states across six days in Phoenix, Arizona.

Here are World-Herald prep recruiting specialist Mike Sautter's notes from day two of the event.

» 2021 Millard North wing Hunter Sallis is among the top prospects at the Academy's West Region. Sallis was the best player on the floor in his evening game, which featured Shaqir O'Neal, son of former NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal, and former Elkhorn South guard Preston Murphy. Sallis' stock is likely to skyrocket after his performance Wednesday.

» 2022 Yankton, S.D. forward Mathew Mors sat out the the majority of the skill work Wednesday morning. He made up for it in the night cap when matched up against Sallis' team. Mors can score in a variety of different ways and put on a show with Creighton's Greg McDermott and Wisconsin's Greg Gard in attendance. Both CU and Wisconsin have offered the 6-7, 220-pound forward.

» There were plenty of college coaches in attendance throughout the day.

McDermott, Oregon assistant Kevin McKenna, UConn assistant and former Nebraska assistant Kenya Hunter and Iowa State assistant James Kane watched Sallis twice. Iowa State and Creighton are two schools that have offered Sallis.
