Championship Sunday did not disappoint at the Generation Next Tip-Off. With the titles on the line, many players rose to the occasion. Here are some of the standouts from the day. 

Kash Knueppel – 2029 – G/F – Wisconsin Lutheran 

Such a consistent player throughout the tournament that helped his team reach the 12U championship game. Knueppel has some size in addition to a very well-rounded game to contribute in a variety of ways. In each of his games not only did he score it efficiently but also was a factor with his distributing, rebounding, and versatile defensive play.  

Semaji Pruitt – 2029 – F – Jr. Redcats 

Pruitt was doing it all today to help his team capture the 12U championship. With his combination of size, skill, and determination, Pruitt could just not be stopped. He scored it very strong attacking the basket but was also highly impactful with his tough defensive play, rebounding, and energy. 

Logan Ramczyk – 2027 – SG – Grind Elite

One of the top scorers and players of the entire tournament. He was a key piece of this very deep and talented Grind Elite team that won the 14U championship. He has a smooth jumper from the outside hitting threes in bunches but also played extremely well off the dribble getting into the paint and finishing. He is a smart guard that knows how to play and was often scoring it very efficiently. He shined most in the semifinals scoring 27 points and then had 15 in the title game.  

Jason Susdorf – 2028 – PG – Region Force

After a good Saturday, Susdorf was even better on Sunday with multiple impressive games. Throughout the day he scored the ball very effectively making a deep run-in bracket play. In the quarterfinals he scored 18 points, then 23 points in the semifinals, and then 15 points to win the championship. Much more than just a scorer however, he also distributed it well. 

Tim West – 2027 – G – NESYB

One of the top two-way guards of the entire tournament. A tough and aggressive on ball defender that can shut down opposing guards and wings with his length and quickness. On the opposite side, West was at his best getting into the paint creating but also shot it well from the outside. He was a big reason NESYB made it all the way to the title game amongst a strong field.
