RYZE Tip Off Classic 17U Top Performers Pt. 2



Brandon Rechsteiner, Atlanta All Stars (Pictured)

Rechsteiner continuously has the gym buzzing when he plays. He has an elite level ability to handle the ball and score off the dribble, making advanced plays in ball screen situations and making plays off the bounce. He scored the ball at a high level all weekend and has the ability to score it from every level of the floor. Overall, he's one of the top point guard in the Peach in 2023.


Silas Demary, Team Curry

It's the overall game that Demary brings that makes him the player that he is. He may not blow anyone away with his numbers in one specific stat category, but if you look across the board, he's very productive and does everything that his team needs to win. He can score it when called upon, he passes the ball well, he's a great rebounder in the backcourt, he's multi-positional, and he defends relentlessly. He's the type of player you'll see winning games in March at the next level.


Khirus Doucet, Ga Canes

Doucet was one of the best and most consistent scorers in the 17U division on the weekend, going for double figures in every game, and finishing his weekend with a huge 26-point effort. He's very tough to contain off the dribble and does not shy away from being physical and getting to the free throw line. When defenses played him for the drive, he showed that his shooting from three cannot be ignored and he consistently knocked down perimeter jumpers as well.


Lukas Walls, Pro One

Walls is one part of Pro One's great backcourt, and he had a great weekend scoring the ball at over 15 points per game. He's incredibly tough and physical off the dribble and can change speeds well to get by defenders and get to the rim. He plays both on and off the ball and can be effective and efficient at both. He was a reliable shooter from three all weekend in catch and shoot situations.


Juvon Gamory, Smyrna Stars

Gamory always looks very solid playing on the ball and running the show. He operates well in ball screens with the ability to make reads and be dangerous both shooting the ball and penetrating the defense. He's a very good three point shooter and has range well beyond the three point line. He finished the weekend averaging over 17 points per game and was a great floor general as well.


Tayden Owens, Wood Elite

Owens is the floor general for a great and very balanced Wood Elite offense. He's very physical off the dribble and has the ability to make moves to get by defenders or bully smaller guards with his physicality. He makes great reads and decisions with the ball in his hands and can set up teammates for scoring opportunities as well as score the ball himself. He had moments shooting the ball well from three, which makes him an incredibly dangerous offensive threat.
