Championship Sunday did not disappoint. Today’s bracket play produced some tremendous games with many stars. Here are some of the standouts from the day. Many of these players were key pieces in their team’s deep playoff runs. 

Cole Certa – 2024 – SG – Illinois Wolves

The lengthy 6’5” guard had an outstanding scoring performance. He started the day with a whopping 40 points and then followed that up with a 28 point game. All day Certa was hitting threes at a high percentage off the catch and dribble with his great stroke. Much more than just a shooter though, the sophomore was also able to attack the basket. 

Davion Hannah – 2025 – G/F – Power 5

A phenomenal talent that was a key piece of his team’s championship today having multiple big games. He is a long and athletic 6’5” wing with great versatility. He scored it very well off the dribble attacking the basket but was also a force on the offensive glass scoring on put backs. A very tough matchup with his physical tools and skills. 

Morez Johnson – 2024 – F – Meanstreets

Not only does Johnson have great physical tools standing at 6’9” with great length and mobility, but also showed plenty of ability on Sunday. The Illinois commit scored it very effectively around the basket in addition to showing a good ability to make plays off the dribble. As well to his offensive game, Johnson constantly played tremendous defense and grabbed every rebound near him. 

Kon Knueppel – 2024 – SG – Phenom University

The sophomore has a tremendous overall skill set as well as feel for the game. A very skilled and efficient scorer that led Phenom to the 16U championship. Knueppel is a knockdown shooter from the outside but has only continued to greatly grow his ability to play off the dribble as well. 

Milan Momcilovic – 2023 – F – Phenom University 

The 6’8” forward showcased his great scoring ability all day to lead his Phenom team to the 17U championship. With his size and offensive skill set he can be nearly impossible to stop when he is hitting his shots. He was shooting the ball well from three all day, hitting six in a single half. The junior also scored it very well on the block and in the mid-post with his great foot work and soft touch around the paint. One of the top players of the entire tournament. 

Tyler Ode – 2024 – G/F – The Family 

Ode is a gifted scorer that can do it well from all three levels. He plays well off the dribble going strong to the rim plus being able to pull up in the mid-range. Even with defenders draped all over him, Ode was able to score it very effectively today.
