Cody McCullough 2020 Forward/All Iowa Attack/Ankeny Centennial HS
The 6’7” forward was phenomenal all tournament, but on Championship Sunday is what really stands out. McCullough shot well from 3 and was a force on the glass on both offense and defense. He has a great feel in the post when looking to score from the block. Moves up and down the floor well. He’s the ideal stretch four at the college level.
Kolby Franklin 2020 Guard/Team KC Silver/Lee’s Summit North
Franklin did it all for his team in their loss to All Iowa Attack. He was getting to the basket with ease and finishing. He was opening up space for his teammates which led to them getting easy scoring opportunities. Franklin shoots the 3 well, has great court vision, and has quick feet which helps him move on defense.
Markell Hood 2020 Guard/KC Run GMC UAA/Blue Valley Northwest
Hood did it all on Championship Sunday. Scored from all three levels, consistently hit his mid-range, and got to the basket with ease. Hood has great court vision for being a slashing guard. He’s a strong and athletic wing who uses it well when rebounding and playing defense. His length causes problems on defense.
Xavier Bell 2020 Guard/KC Run GMC UAA/Andover Central
Bell was unstoppable on Sunday, especially in the championship game. The lefty was getting to the basket at will and converting through contact. Bell was the reason GMC went on a run and put the game away when he came away with multiple steals and had multiple and-1’s. The talented guard is the perfect complement to GMC’s Ty Berry as he can really set the tone with his defense. The lefty uses his body well when driving to the rim and knows how to finish through contact. Bell has a great change of pace when pushing the ball up the court.
