Latrell Wrightsell Jr, G, Omaha Central (2020): Wrightsell was great on both ends of the floor. His frame has developed, and he showed that he can push the pace as a point guard when needed. He made multiple contested 3-pointers, attacked the basket, scored in transition and was a welcome distributor of the ball.
Chucky Hepburn, G, Bellevue West (2021): It was a long day for Hepburn. His day started playing with his Bellevue West teammates at the Papillion-La Vista South 3D Jam. Hepburn was his normal distributor and scorer on the offensive end. UNO was the first to recruit Hepburn, and he has rewarded the Mavs by keeping them in the recruiting conversation, despite a recent scholarship offer from Wisconsin and holding a committable scholarship offer from Nebraska.
Ajante Hogan, G/F, Lincoln Southeast (2021): It seemed like Hogan was dunking everything during the team competition. He showed he is more than a dunker on the offensive end by finishing with contact and in traffic. He also knocked down open jump shots and had one contested 3-pointer.
Skyler Wilson, G, Omaha South (2020): Wilson continued his nice spring with another solid performance Friday afternoon. Wilson is a steady play on both ends of the floor. He showed that he can score inside and out and made in-rhythm jump shots.
Lucas Vogt, G, BRLD (2021): Vogt is underappreciated by most. Maybe it is his lack of height (5-11) or the fact he doesn't play for a larger school. Despite that, he is a good player and showed off his next level court vision and passing ability. He is also way more bouncy or athletic than he gets credit for.
