With the division one live period now here, there was plenty of extra energy in the gyms today with baselines lined with college coaches. Here are a few of the standouts from day one of the Spring Extravaganza. 

Connor Brown – 2024 – G – Illinois Predators 

A real breakout player of the tournament that needs to be on college coaches’ radars. He has a good well-rounded skill set with some size in the backcourt at 6’3” and some length. Not only did Brown score the ball effectively in the Predator’s opening day victory but did a bit of everything. A versatile scorer who is a skilled passer with his vison and players with good energy on the defensive end. 

Patrick Odingo – 2023 – PG – Recruiting Boost

The Australian was one of the more impressive point guards of day one.  A skilled playmaker on the attack who reads the floor well and has a good ability to get wherever he wants with his great quickness with the ball. Odingo was very effective both scoring and distributing on the attack with his quick decision-making ability. 

Azavier Robinson – 2025 – PG – George Hill All Indy

Every time I see Robinson, he is playing at an extremely high level and doing so much to help his team win games and today was no different. The sophomore scored 25 points in a tight three-point victory. Even while scoring the ball very effectively with his outside shot making or finishing strong at the rim, the explosive guard was just as impactful with his pressure defense forcing turnovers in bunches. 

Nathaniel Savage – 2024 – PG – Michigan AFO Mustangs

Savage possibly had the top performance of the day as he was simply unstoppable at times, including scoring 21 points in the first half alone. Whether it was hitting shots from the outside, attacking the rim, defending the ball, or dishing it out, Savage was doing it at an extremely high level. He is such a dynamic playmaker with the ball in his hands. 

Maxsamus Wilson – 2023 – G – Gain Elite

While the 6’4” guard showed a good all-around skill set, it was his shot making ability that stood out tonight. Wilson scored 21 points with much of it from beyond the perimeter hitting five threes. Even with defenders draped all over him, Wilson hit some tough contested shots off the dribble.
