Even as freshman, there was plenty of talent on hand at the 15U level at the Spring Extravaganza. Here are the players who impressed the most amongst the strong field.

Brady Benish – 2026 – G – Wisconsin Swing

Benish put together multiple big games over the tournament including a pair of games of 21-points to make his way onto this list. The freshman has a great stroke from the outside to be a knockdown shooter spotting up and can also create his own shot. Much more than just a shooter, Benish can also be a primarily ball handler, scored it well going to the basket, and passes it well. 

Max Flanagan – 2026 – SG – All Area Basketball

One of the more skilled scorers at the 15U level putting up a 26-point game on Saturday night. Flanagan was getting it done from all three levels with his smooth jumper and being able to hit shots off the dribble. He was also very effective getting all the way to the bucket too as he can beat defenders with his strength or moves. 

Greg Grays – 2026 – G – D Rice Elite

Grays had one of the top performances of the weekend with a 32-point game. For a freshman, he has a high skill level and plays strong with the ball in his hands. A tough shot maker hitting multiple contested jumpers with a quick release and range but also plays well attacking the basket. He is a vocal leader who knows how to play. 

Xavier McKinney – 2026 – SG – All Ohio Select

The freshman had one of the best games of the tournament with a 36-point performance with his advanced skill set in a hard-fought victory. While he is a highly skilled scorer there is much more to like about his game with his defensive play and passing. The long wing guard has an effortless smooth jumper from the outside but also moves well with the ball gliding to the bucket. 

Jedidiah Minnett – 2026 – G – D1 Indiana 

Minnett was one of the more skilled 2026 guards at the Spring Extravaganza. An incredibly dynamic scorer putting up 27 points in one game. He shoots the ball well from the outside and can create his own shot but also moves extremely well with the ball getting into the defense. Minnett is a smart guard who sees the floor and just knows how-to put-up points.  

Rashaun Porter – 2026 – F – Illinois Wolves

After a big weekend at Swish N’ Dish, Porter had another couple impressive games here for himself. The 6’7” forward plays with good energy, strength, and aggressiveness on both ends of the floor. A tough interior defender who also controls the glass but moves well defending out on the perimeter. Porter is a strong scorer around the paint but can also put the ball on the floor attacking the basket.  

Damariye Redmond – 2026 – PG – Team Haliburton

The freshman is a tough attacking point guard. He excels getting into the paint and scoring it very effectively getting all the way to the basket with his handle, shifty moves, and quickness. Much more than just a driver, Redmond can also spot up for threes, is a good passer, and can be a very tough on ball defender. 

Thian Riak – 2026 – G/F – Phenom University

The game and skill level for the highly athletic 6’4” wing have continued to take great strides forward over the past year. Over the tournament he was playing so effective off the dribble getting into the defense. He has good moves with the ball and plays tough through contact getting all the way to the basket often as well as pulling up in the mid-range. With his emerging skills and great athleticism, he is not a player to miss. 

Wesley Wake – 2026 – SF – Team Temple

There are many aspects to like from the game of Wake. He is a long forward with good length and size at 6’7” but has the skilled to go with it. Wake is a knockdown shooter from the outside hitting six threes in a single game but can also score it around the basket. Defensively, he showed a good ability to play tough defending the paint but also moves well to guard out on the perimeter. A freshman with great upside.
