Even with a loaded first and second team from this year’s NY2LA Association, there was still plenty of other talented players still left. With all the talented teams apart of the 2021 NY2LA Association there were plenty of candidates to choose from, but here are the players that were voted to this honorable mention list. 

Justin Banks – 2022 – F – All In Athletics 
One of the more consistent players in the association that continued to perform at a high level and was always contributing for his All In team. He’s a strong and athletic 6’6” wing forward that does a number of things on the court. He constantly showed a great ability to defend multiple positions well, score it strong around the bucket, shoot the three, rebound at a high level, and more. 

Antonio Bluiett – 2022 – G – MN Comets
Bluiett is one of the top point guards to have played on the association this season. He has good strength at the position and is very skilled with the ball in his hands. The senior has a very good ability to create his own shot plus get to the rim to score on all three levels in addition to create for his teammates well. Bluiett is a highly skilled lead guard that brings so much to his team.  

Wesley Celichowski – 2022 – C – Louisville Legends
A true big man at 6’11” as well to having a strong build and good motor. Celichowski was constantly making a big impact in the paint on both ends to lock down his spot on this list. With all his tools, he proved to be incredibly tough to defend when he got the ball inside in addition to being one of the better rebounders in the association. 

Petia Dogale – 2022 – F – Dreams Become Reality
Dogale was constantly one of the more energetic players on the association. The power forward is a tough and versatile defender who has also continued to develop his skills showing the ability to hit outside jumpers and put the ball on the floor. Dogale impressed the most in the summer finale helping his team all the way to the final four in Orlando. 

Noah Feddersen – 2022 – F/C – WI Playmakers
Feddersen is a true big man as well to having some good skills and plays with plenty of energy. He showed a great ability to play in the post on both ends, but also has good mobility at 6’9” and plays well facing up to the basket too. The big man has continued to develop to earn himself some offers from both division one and two schools over the past few months. 

Donald Ferguson – 2022 – G – Team GetShook
Tournament after tournament, the 6’2” point guard proved to be one of the best shooters of the entire association. Much more than just a shooter, Ferguson can run the point well, get to the basket, and is a tough on ball defender. With all his abilities and what he did each tournament, Ferguson was a lock to end up with some honors. 

Kenneth Garth – 2022 – G – World Hoops Elite
Garth was one of the most impactful players in the entire association all spring and summer with his ability to impact the game in a variety of ways. While the lengthy guard continuously impressed with his tremendous distributing ability, he did so much more for his World Hoops teams. He also has a nice ability to knock down threes, get to the rim, defend at a high level on the perimeter, and more. 

Ashton Janowski – 2022 – G – JH1 Elite
Week after week Janowski continued to improve his game, culminating with a tremendous showing at the season finale in Orlando. He has all the point guard skills with his strong handle and ability to breakdown down a defense and distribute it but also scores it well himself. Look for Janowski to have a big senior season. 

Armani Jones – 2022 – G – WI RAP
Game after game, Jones proved to be one of the more dynamic playmakers with the ball in his hands with all of his abilities. The up-tempo point guard has a great combination of handle, shiftiness, and quickness to always be getting anywhere he wants on the floor to be creating for himself and teammates. 

Kabine Kaba – 2021 – F – Gain Elite
One of the more dominant two-way forwards that continuously played at a high level. Kaba greatly impressed tournament after tournament with his shot blocking ability as well to being able to score from the perimeter plus around the rim. One of the biggest stock boosters over the last few months, he will be moving on to North Dakota State College of Science this season. 

Harlan Obioha – 2022 – C – Rocky Mountain 
Standing at seven feet tall with a strong build, Obioha was one of the most dominant paint presences in the entire association. The post was a force down inside on both ends of the floor all season long. More than just a paint player, Obioha showed some good skills being able to play out on the perimeter and hit threes consistently. He has recently committed to Niagara University.   

Terrance Ramirez – 2022 – G – 3D Empire
As a part of this loaded 3D championship team that included co-MVP’s Anthony Black and Camron Amboree as well as second team honoree Ryan Agarwal, Ramirez was at times overshadowed but still one of the more talented players in the association. Ramirez is a tough two-way guard that always found a way to contribute for his team. When needed he showed the ability to carry the scoring load scoring 30 points in a game at the Grassroots Showdown in Louisville. He has recently committed to UT-Arlington. 

JT Seagreaves – 2022 – G – WI Swing
Even while splitting time between football and on the hard wood during the spring, the two-sport standout, still found a way to be one of the top players on the association. The 6’6” forward was a constant and key contributor for a quality Swing squad throughout the season with his versatile scoring ability around the paint and beyond the perimeter, strong rebounding, and tough defensive play. While he was able to get some division two offers for himself, he ended up choosing the gridiron and committed to Wisconsin as a tight end. 

Josh Terrian – 2022 – G/F – JH1 Elite
Another member of the talented 2022 JH1 Elite team to earn themselves some honors. The 6’4” wing is an intriguing player with his ability to shoot it well from the perimeter but also use his strong build to do a lot on the floor. As well, Terrian plays with tremendous energy to always be a contributor for his team on both ends of the floor. Even with plenty of talented teammates, he had plenty of big games for himself over the course of the season. He has recently committed to Michigan Tech.

Hakim Williams – 2021 – G – Mercury Elite
An incredibly unique guard that was one of the more versatile and impactful players in the association. He’s strong build guard that is a do-it-all player. Whether it be defending multiple positions, distributing the ball, scoring around the basket, or rebounding at a high level, Williams got it done. He will be playing at Illinois Wesleyan University this upcoming season.
