All-Ohio Super 16: Breakout Teams

There are always several good teams at elite travel tournaments, so to pick just one break out team in a respective division is hard to do. However, two teams we saw worthy of this title were Ohio “Elevate” Crush 15U and the Ohio Hoopsters 16U.

Ohio Crush was led by a terrific backcourt in Dublin Jerome’s Seve Stavroff and Hilliard Bradley’s Brandon Glenn. Both guards were highly skilled, crafty, and were capable of making a variety of shots. If you get a chance, check out this duo, they are extremely entertaining to watch.

Jevon Knox (Marysville), Kalib Younger (Walnut Ridge), and Jack Klein (Hilliard Davidson) were also solid backcourt contributors for Crush.

We mentioned the Ohio Hoopsters above making the semis in the 16-and-under division, but let us take a closer look at its team.

The backcourt is in good hands with Tommy Bolte (Chillicothe), Bradley Smith (Olentangy Liberty), and Rodney Culver (Pickerington Central). Bolte was able to score in a variety of ways against King James. He got into the lane almost at will and knocked down shots from the perimeter. Culver was as aggressive as we’ve ever seen him. He attacked the rim with his great length and knocked down shots behind the arc.

The frontcourt is one of the better well kept secrets in Ohio led by 6-foot-8 John Miller (New Albany) and 6-foot-6 Cory Saddler (Clinton-Massie). Throw in Chris London (New Albany) and Alex Baughman (Thomas Worthington) off the bench, and that makes for a solid interior.

Miller will have a chance to be one of the top big men in Ohio’s Class of 2015. He is very skilled and loves to face up from 15-17 feet. Saddler impacts the game in a variety of ways. He is long and athletic, and very disruptive on the defensive end getting his hands on a lot of balls. He is a high energy guy on the offensive end that will out work his opponent.
