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.
