It was a great five days of basketball at the NY2LA Final Chapter, and this was especially true on Sunday. With multiple nationally ranked prospects and dozens of divisions one prospects there was plenty of competition and high-level games. Here is past one of the standouts from Sunday. 

Xavier Booker – 2023 – PF – George Hill All Indy

The highly skilled big man flashed his ability all tournament including in his showcase game on Sunday. He is unguardable at times with his ability to attack the basket and hit shots all at 6’11”. He was moving extremely well with the ball with his handle and agility to get into the paint and finish with ease with his size and great length as well to hit some shots off the dribble. There are just few players anywhere that have his overall package that make him possibly the top player nationally in the 2023 class. 

Demarion Burch – 2023 – SG – Team Haliburton

Burch continued to show an elite scoring ability this summer. While he had a strong spring, he has taken his game to the next level in July. In a showcase game Sunday morning, Burch exploded for 23 points getting it done on all three levels. He was showing great moves off the dribble and finishing amongst big men inside in addition to his great mid-range game plus stepping outside to hit spot up threes. A player in the 2023 class not to miss for mid-major programs. 

Brady Corso – 2024 – SG – Wisconsin Blizzard

The two guard has impressed this year on the NY2LA Association and took his game to another level this tournament, especially in the championship game. In the title game, Corso led his team scoring 20 points in a winning effort. He is a pure shooter hitting five threes in the title game. While he is a knockdown spot up shooter, Coro was also shooting it well off the dribble creating for himself from the outside. While his biggest impact was with his jumper, he also showed the ability to attack the basket as well as be a plus on ball defender. 

Deandre Craig – 2023 – PG – Team FVV

Craig was a big piece of Team FVV run to the GSS bracket championship game. Craig scored it well throughout the tournament including 25 points in the semifinals and 15 in the title game against a high level of competition. A skilled scoring guard who shoots it very well from the outside but excelled Sunday attacking the basket. Craig proved to be very difficult to stick with as he handles the ball well and exceled at attacking at gaps in the defense and playing through contact. 

Marcus Hall – 2023 – SF – Wisconsin Swing

The game of Hall has continued to take great strides each tournament and it took a huge leap forward during the Final Chapter where he played his best basketball. While he was one of the more sought-after division two recruits in the Midwest, he cemented his spot as a division one level player with his performance. He is a versatile and efficient scorer who was able to help Swing all the way to the title game, scoring 19 points in that matchup that went down to the wire. He has good size on the wing at 6’7” and knows how to play. 

Corey Hadnot – 2023 – G – Team Temple

Hadnot has continued to show he was one of the top guards on the NY2LA Association this season. He is a tough attacking guard that plays so well going to the bucket. In his game Sunday against the eventual champions MidPro, Hadnot went for 23 points. He has a great ability to fight through contact and get all the way to the rim in addition to crating for himself in the mid-range. While he does have a couple division one offers, more programs would be wise to give him a look.  

Brock Harding – 2023 – PG – MidPro Academy

It was a fitting way to see Harding end his career on the NY2LA Association knocking down a pull up three at the buzzer to give MidPro the win in the championship game of the platinum division. While he has continued to prove to be one of the top distributors and most elusive guards on the national level, Harding was also getting it done himself Sunday. This included 16 points in the championship game while hitting four threes.
