Recapping the top performances from the 810 Varsity Showcase between Basehor-Linwood and St. James Academy and Lee’s Summit West facing off with Piper High School in the capstone game.
Jordan Brown – 6’5” – 2022 – Team YOBO – Basehor-Linwood
Jordan Brown is one of the best players in the Kansas City Area. At the 810 Varsity Showcase, Brown brought energy and showed off his passing ability. In the second quarter, Brown finally got going from three knocking down a long-range three. Brown made an impact all over the court — Brown had a block in transition, had a steal, and took a charge to make his presence felt. As one of the best shooters and creators in the Metro area, the best is yet to come from Jordan Brown.
Trevor McBride – 6’2” – 2022 – SSA Elite – Basehor-Linwood
McBride is a tough and gritty point guard who does what it takes to win. At the 810 Varsity Showcase, that meant playing tough defense and distributing the ball to Jordan Brown and Ty Hofer, who had it going from deep. McBride is a knock down shooter to keep an eye on.
Ty Hofer – 6’4” – 2022 – SSA Elite – Basehor-Linwood
Ty Hofer does everything for his team. At the 810 Varsity Showcase, Hofer knocked down 3 three’s, and eventually connecting with the dagger three to go up 8 late in the game. With good size and shooting ability, I definitely see Hofer playing at the next level.
Josh Salinas – 6’ – 2024 – Mokan Elite – Lee’s Summit West
Josh Salinas is a name to write down and remember. Coming off the bench, Salinas played with confidence and poise. With an impressive frame as a Freshman, Salinas played tough defense and made some impressive plays scoring and passing.
