HEAD COACH:  Terry McKiddy

TEAM SUMMARY:  The Mavericks 15U squad represents our best current 8th graders and freshman players available.  This is a team that if it stays together and matures physically will ultimately be a 17U Elite Black or White squad down the line.  In the near term, these players are generally playing up in competition and will develop the hard way as they are initially pushed from their comfort zone and ultimately settle into being a competitive squad.

Point Guard Bryer Noe is an outstanding and fluid ballhandler who plays with flash and flair, can get to the basket and score, and finds teammates in scoring position for the jumper or lay-up off the dump.  As he matures, he will be one of the top point guards in North Central Missouri small school basketball. Plato’s Wesley Wilson is the true “quarterback” type point guard, outstanding in ball security and a deceptively mature level of decision-making. He is joined in the backcourt by Vienna’s Kyle Helton, an outstanding shooter who needs only physically mature to become an outstanding East Central Missouri high school player.  Southern Boone’s Grant Rust, a solid ballhandler and shooter, adds significant depth out front.

On the wings, Newtown-Harris contributes freshman Ben Busick while Linn County contributes Dusten Coke, an outstanding shooting and scoring wing player with outstanding upside.  Dusten is quick, has great hands and can run all day.  Lakeland 8th grader Hayden McClure, one of the purest young talents in the program brings amazing athletic ability and defensive desire to the squad.  He can explode to the basket, and knock down the deep jumper.  His potential is limitless moving forward.

Nevada contributes Zach Gardner and Hunter Mason to the squad.  Both boys are physically mature and tough, not afraid to mix it up, and will have the ability to lead  16U teams for the Mavericks as early as next year.  Mason has excellent skills, great length and outstanding college potential (though we don’t tag 8th graders with projected college labels til they get to at least the 16U level).  Stover’s Brady Smith is a little raw, but athletic, and impresses me with his toughness on the glass and athleticism as a player with great upside.

6-3 8th grader Andrew Edwards of Santa Fe has tremendous future potential.  He’s a true 3-man, forced inside this summer, but as he matures within the program, he will migrate to the wing.  He’s very long, jumps well and is approaching the dunk.  6-4 Hunter Scaggs of Mid-Buchanan who played 17U in the spring, will play on the Dallas 15U squad with Hunter Mason and Hayden McClure from this squad.

He’s a pure, developing talent with knock-down potential to the scholarship level.

“This team is the future of our program in the next two to three years”, says program director Mark McLaughlin,”There are guys on this squad who in a normal year would have gone ahead and played up at 16U, but our freshman and sophomore classes are loaded.”

“There’s a wealth of talent here that will claw and scratch to compete early, but we have them paired up with the right coach in Terry McKiddy of Chillicothe.”McLaughlin said.”Terry is an outstanding teacher and a great game coach who knows how to keep a developing team pumping and grinding towards success.  We’re lucky to have had him join us this year.”
