It was a loaded 14U field with so many players to notice. Here are some additional players at the 14U level who greatly impressed with their play.

Chris Chittaro – 2027 – G/F – Hoopademix 

The wing had one of the top games of the entire tournament with a 25-point performance on Saturday. Chittaro has such a smooth jumper and knocked down five threes in that game all while hitting them at a high percentage. More than just a shooter however, he scored the ball around the paint and played with good energy on the defensive end matching up well with multiple positions effectively. 

Blair Fagbemi – 2027 – PG – Illinois Attack

Fagbemi was one of the better distributors of the entire tournament. He has very good moves as well to his quickness to often get into the paint and create. On the move, he showed great vision reading the floor and finding the open man. More than just a distributor, Fagbemi also scored the ball on his drives utilizing a nice running jumper. 

Alex Krause – 2027 – G – Grind Elite

When it mattered most, Krause stepped up his game to another level in the title game. The guard scored 21 points to help his team capture the championship. He is a smart guard with a great stroke from deep knocking down four three pointers. He moves well without the ball really hunting his shots but can also handle the ball and make some plays off the dribble. 

Magnus Johnson – 2027 – C – LVL Elite

At 6’3” with his length and mobility, Johnson was one of the top interior defenders shutting down the paint for long stretches. He plays very aggressive on defense patrolling the paint and blocking anything near him. On the offensive end, he scored it effectively around the paint on dump offs and rolls plus showed some developing skills hitting some outside jumpers as well as being able to handle the ball. 

Bryor Purman – 2027 – SF – Team Iowa Elite

Purman was one of several talented and impactful players on this quality team out of Iowa. A versatile wing that is a stat stuffer with all his tools. He has good size at 6’3” plus some length and agility. He did a bit of everything with his scoring on the attack and in the mid-range, distributing, tough defensive play, and aggressive rebounding. 

Tim West – 2027 – G – NESYB

After being one of the top guards on the GNBA this past season, the guard had a stellar showing throughout bracket play to help his team advance all the way to the title game. West really excelled on both ends of the floor. He is a very tough on ball defender with his agility and length to stick so well with the ball. Offensively, he is strong with the ball in his hands getting into the paint often but can also spot up and knock down outside shots.
