2019 Sunflower Showcase: Saturday Night Standouts

The 2019 Sunflower Showcase has come to a close. We take a quick look at some of the performers from Saturday night’s games.

Justin Guernsey 2021 Guard/Illini Magic/Pleasant Plains HS

Guernsey was fantastic in his team’s win against Team KC Black on Saturday night, scoring 23 for the game. He was a problem on offense all game from all three levels. He uses his change of pace well and has a knack for getting to the basket with ease. A willing defender and fights for rebounds. 

Cooper Peterson 2020 Guard/Oklahoma Wolfpack Black/Homeschool

Peterson had 24 in his team’s loss to Team Carroll Premier. Peterson was lights out from 3 and tenacious on defense, while being tasked to guard Tony Toney. Peterson is a sharpshooter who has deceptive speed to him. He moves well without the ball when looking for his spot. 

Isiaah Jackson 2020 Guard/Team KC Black/William Chrisman HS

Jackson was the defensive stalwart for his team on Friday night. Jackson was tenacious all game and never took his foot off the gas, which led to several disruptions for the opposing team. Jackson has great speed, is a strong bodied guard, and can get to the basket. He has quick feet on defense and has great instinct when playing the passing lanes. Jackson can be a great lockdown perimeter defender at the next level.

Drew Daniel 2020 Guard/All Iowa Attack/Dowling Catholic HS

Daniel shot lights out from 3 for All Iowa Attack on Saturday night against Team Carroll Premier. When the Attack needed a bucket to push their lead they looked for Daniel on the wing, who had his feet set and ready. Daniel’s not only a sharpshooter, he’s got great size and can rebound well. He takes great pride in his defense. 

Trinity Bell 2021 Forward/Team Carroll Premier/Albertville HS

Bell is a force to be reckoned with for Team Carroll Premier. On Saturday night, he was a monster on the glass, on offense in the post, and while defending. When TCP needs a bucket, they go to Bell who goes to work down low. Bell is massive and has a strong build, which he uses to man the post and for rebounding. The most impressive play from Saturday night was his two handed block that he pinned against the glass, showing that he has a great knack for finding the ball at its highest point for blocks.

Press Release

August 2nd, 2019

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions the campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.

The camp is not open to the public, only family members of the campers. Media requests need to be submitted to
