It was an extremely strong field at the 14U level. As well to the champions, Next Level Grind Elite, there was many talented teams with NESYB, Reagan Jr. Huskies, Illinois Central Elite, Team Iowa Elite, and a few others. While there are a few other players that made a very strong argument to be included, here are the players selected to the All-Tournament Team for the Generation Next Tip-Off. 

Sam Church – 2027 – PF – Team Iowa Elite

Church is an incredibly active and strong forward that was constantly making plays for his team. At first, he shined with his paint play but continued to show additional skills throughout the tournament. A very aggressive forward that was always outworking and outplaying opposing forwards down in the paint. As well to being one of the best rebounders of the tournament and scoring it strong in the paint, he also showed the ability to hit some jumpers and put the ball on the floor. 

Donovan Davis – 2027 – F - Grind Elite

There are so many tools to Davis game that helped him be a big piece of his team’s championship tournament. He has plenty of size at 6’3” and good length as well to his agility for his size. Davis plays big inside as well to having a versatile skill set. He is a tough defender that was shutting down the paint but also moves well enough to defend out on the perimeter even matching up against guards. Offensively, he scored it strong down in the paint plus he can spot up for threes and handle the ball. 

Jaxson Davis – 2027 – PG – Illinois Central Elite

One of the most consistent and skilled players who has performed at a high level every time I see him. With good experience playing up in age groups, his game is just on another level when playing at his own age group. While Davis was consistently scoring twenty-five or more points a game he also did so much more on the court. He has a good ability to run the point well, getting into the defense and setting up his teammates as well to being an incredibly tough defender forcing steals in bunches. 

Max Jones – 2027 – F – Reagan Jr. Huskies

Jones has good size and strength for his age standing at 6’3” with a solid build. He excelled throughout the tournament with his play on both ends to be an easy selection for this list. He has an advanced game with the ability to impact a game in so many ways. Jones is at his best going strong to the basket as he moves well with the ball but is also very effective playing with his back to the basket scoring right over or through defenders. The forward also was very effective with his ability to defend the paint with his size plus impressed with his passing ability. There are just not many middle schoolers with his combination of tools. 

Reece Jordan Jr – 2027 – SG – NESYB

One of a few players from this 14U NESYB team that had a big tournament to help them all the way to the championship game. Jordan is a highly skilled scorer, showing exactly that it the title game with a thirty-point performance. All tournament Jordan shot it a high percentage from the outside in addition to his ability to attack the basket. Jordan’s playmaking ability off the dribble has greatly improved, with his moves and handle. He plays very smart with the ball in his hands as well to being a crafty finisher around the paint. 

Logan Ramczyk – 2027 – SG – Grind Elite

One of the most gifted scorers of the entire tournament who helped Grind Elite win the 14U championship. Even with all the weapons on this team, Ramczyk continuously scored the ball in bunches, including throughout bracket play to help them win game after game. The guard is a very efficient scorer who plays smart and took advantage of all his opportunities. Ramczyk has a smooth jumper spotting up from deep but was also very effective getting into the paint and finishing with his moves.  

Davion Thompson – 2027 – G/F - Illinois Central Elite 

Another talented and very impactful player from Illinois Central Elite to be selected to this first team. Thompson had a big start to the tournament with a 28-point game on Saturday. He has some size on the wings at 6’2” and a versatile scoring ability. Thompson moves very well with the ball attacking the basket strong and finishes at a high rate in the paint but also has a good stroke from the outside to rack up the points.
