So much talent from the 14U level of the GNBA Championships. While not even in high school yet, there was a great deal of talent. Here are several others in addition to the top performers who had themselves tremendous weekends. 

Caden Gustafson – 2026 – PG – 24Up

One of many skilled players on this 24Up team that was a key piece in their run to the platinum title game. Throughout multiple games he showed a good ability to score and distribute the ball. He has a great stroke to do the bulk of his scoring spotting up from three but was also effective driving to distribute the ball. He came up huge in the semifinals leading his team with 15 points but also had 6 assists. 

Vaughn Karvala – 2026 – G/F – MTXE Premier

Karvala is an incredibly versatile player with all of his abilities and standing at 6’2” with plenty of length. Not only can he be a primary ball handler but scores it from the perimeter and getting to the basket plus is big on the boards. While we’ve seen his ability to get to the basket with his long strides plenty, he was shooting the ball at a high level from the outside. 

Jayden Kimbrough – 2026 – PG – Martin Brothers

The strong point guard had multiple big scoring games. A smart and effective scorer who got it done in multiple ways. He plays well off the dribble using his physicality to power his way to the basket and finish but also shoots it very off the dribble with good range. He also moves well with the ball getting to his spots to create. 

Josh Kori – 2026 – SG – Yung Bullz

Kori already has some size in the backcourt at 6’3” as well to great athleticism. He excels playing off the dribble as he beats defenders with ease as not only does he have great moves with the ball but also uses his physicality to get all the way to the bucket.  Kori impressed game after games and has a lot of tools already that will translate to the high school level. In the title game he led his team with 12 points including a dunk that ended the game with a mercy rule. 

Logan Luxem – 2026 – G – Illinois Central Elite 

The combo guard has very good all-around ability. He moves well with the ball in his hands getting into the defense effectively to distribute it out in addition to scoring around the paint and mid-range. Off the ball he can space the floor spotting up for threes. On the other end, Luxem was a key piece of his team full court pressure where he is a very active defender. 

Ethan Matxz – 2026 -G/F – Illinois Central Elite

A wing with some length and good overall skills. A smart player with the ball in his hands but also shoots it very well from the outside. Not overly big but he plays strong attacking the basket playing though contact and finishing in a crowd. When it mattered most, Matxz turned up his game another level hitting four threes in the quarterfinals and then scoring 15-points in the semifinals. 

Bryce Ott- 2026 – F – Wisconsin Blizzard

A forward with some size and good all-around ability. As well to playing big in the paint on both ends, Ott can handle the ball and passes it well plus can knock down some jumpers. He plays with good energy running the floor to get transition buckets and finishes well around the basket. A versatile player who is a highly impactful forward. 

Owen Thomas – 2026 – SG – Team GRIII Elite

Thomas was one of the top shooters of the entire tournament. He has a pure jumper spotting up from the outside with great range. He had multiple big shooting games during the tournament doing so at a high percentage. More than just a shooter he is a smart and vocal defender who plays with good energy.
