Jalen Lecque | Brewster Academy, NH

With multiple NBA teams in attendance to watch him, Brewster Academy senior guard Jalen Lecque came to play. As expected, Lecque showed off his elite athleticism but also knocked down multiple jump shots from deep. He made some clutch plays down the stretch, which put Brewster in a good position to take home the victory against Thornlea Secondary School.

Kai Jones | Brewster Academy, NH

Texas commit Kai Jones has some of the best potential throughout the class of 2019. With his size, length and athleticism Jones makes a serious impact on both ends. He also shows great flashes with his skill set as he is starting to knock down mid-range shots a bit more consistently. Jones is a huge reason why Brewster Academy is one of the most talented teams throughout the nation.

Santiago Vescovi | NBA Academy- Latin America

NBA Academy -Latin America point guard Santiago Vescovi was one of the breakout prospects from the National Prep School Invitational. The class of 2020 guard from Uruguay showed great poise and a refined skill set. He has a consistent jumper he can turn to and has elite court vision as well. With his skill and basketball I.Q., high major schools need to keep track of Vescovi going forward.

Malik Hall | Sunrise Christian Academy, KS

Sunrise Christian Academy’s Malik Hall got off to a slow start but got comfortable as the event went on. He may have been the toughest matchup out of anyone throughout the event. He stands 6’8”, is a comfortable ball handler and a consistent shooter. With that combination, Hall is very hard to stop when he is on.
