Badgerland State Week 1 – Tier 1 Standouts.
Brown is the defensive anchor for a stacked Wisconsin Lutheran team. His teammates have great confidence pressuring the ball and knowing Brown is there to contest the drive. His wiry frame and athleticism allows him to alter shots on a consistent basis as well as snatch timely rebounds. On the offensive end, Brown is a mismatch problem in the post where he shows next level footwork and finesseful shot fakes that result in easy baskets. His impact on both ends stood out all weekend.Max Jones Max Jones WG WI
Jones is a two-way floor leader for a stacked Ronald Reagan team. His size and athleticism allow him to grab offensive and defensive boards. He does a nice job pushing the paint in transition and owning the “point forward” role. Jones quick reaction time allows him to finish around the rim, as well as get steals and deflections that lead to transition buckets.

Rademaker is a well rounded big man who was super impressive at Badgerland State. He proved to be able to fill it up on all three levels of the court. He was a rebounding machine for his team. He’s a clear mismatch in the post, the defense needs to help on him more when he has the ball and he’s able to find his open teammates or power through.
Samson is a two way floor leader and play maker for West DePere. He can handle the ball under pressure as well as apply it just as tough on defense. His quick first step allows him to create advantage drives for his team and get easy layups with either hand. Sampson was smart with the ball, rarely forcing anything offensively.
Davis is a do-it-all player for his team. He proved to be able to guard 1-5 effectively. He’s an energy leader for the team, things seemed to work better when Davis was in the game. He was impressive on the boards both offensively and defensively. Davis stood out for his ability to finish through contact in the paint.
