TOC Classic Top Performers Pt. 1
Ace Bailey, McEachern
In a game where McEachern was down their starting backcourt, Bailey put on the most impressive performance of the day, scoring 30 points and looking like the five-star prospect that he is. He made some tremendous moves off the dribble and hit some high level shots from three and in the midrange. He started to draw double teams and made the right reads when they were thrown at him as well. To be able to create and score like he can all over the floor, with the size at 6-foot-9, versatility, and athleticism, you have one of the top players nationally in 2024.
Arrinten Page, Wheeler
The rims were in danger during the final game of the event with the number of dunks that Page had throughout the game. He's established himself as a dominant force on the block no matter who the opponent is, and his abilities around the rim on both ends are elite. He led Wheeler with 19 points in a win over Kimball (TX) and looked absolutely dominant in the process.
Josh Dixon, Milton
Dixon has had a fantastic start to the season, leading Milton to an unbeaten start. He's shown that he's one of the best guards in the state in 2025 with his ability to score and create off the bounce. He's incredibly quick and consistently beats defenders off the bounce and has the ability to knock down tough shots from every level of the floor. He had another 20+ point performance in a win over Chapel Hill on Saturday.
T'Johnn Brown, Kimball (TX)
Brown did everything he could to keep his Kimball (TX) team in the game against Wheeler. He's very good off the dribble and has a burst of quickness that makes him very tough to contain. He showed that he's a very creative finisher around the rim and has to be respected from beyond the three point line. He currently holds an offer form Murray State and college programs in need of a point guard in 2023 will want to get in on his recruitment.
Tylis Jordan, Shiloh
Jordan showed his versatility in a win over Holy Innocents, going for 23 points, hitting the boards, and protecting the rim. He scored the ball well from every level of the floor, including connecting on four threes. He has a ton of potential and a very high ceiling at a long 6-foot-7 with his abilities to play on the perimeter, guard multiple spots, and do a little bit of everything.
Jadan Baugh, Columbia
Baugh was a big key in Columbia's win over a young and talented Washington team. He's as physical of a player as you can imagine, using his size and strength to get to the rim and convert through contact. He was continuously finding his was past defenders and into the paint, where he converted at a high level. He's a four-star prospect on the football field, so his level of physicality is no surprise.
