Last up from the 16U level at the NY2LA Sports Invitational is the ones to watch. 

Jamarion Batemon – 2025 – G – Power 5

Over the course of the tournament Batemon had some big moments in helping Power 5 win the 16U championship. This included a game winning shot in the final seconds of a game as well as scoring 16 points in the semifinals and then 23 points in championship. There are few better shot makers in Wisconsin’s 2025 class as Batemon can knockdown threes in bunches and create his own shot but is also very quick with the ball getting all the way to the rim. 

Delantay Boyce – 2025 – G/F – Pride Roc

While Boyce stood out with his scoring, he also did so much on the floor. He plays with good toughness and just outworks others on the floor. Boyce plays so tough around the paint finishing very strong in traffic as well as rebounding at a high rate. As well to scoring it inside, Boyce was also getting it done from the mid-range to put up plenty of points. 

Alex Ceredi – 2025 – F – 24Up

Ceredi was a big piece of this 24Up team that was one of the top teams at the 16U level starting it off 3-0. The 6’6” forward was key in getting that third win going for 18 points in an overtime victory Saturday night. He had some good games back in April at Swish N’ Dish but looks to have taken his game up a level with his versatile play. He had a nice blend of size, mobility, and skills with the ball. 

Ethan Lee – 2025 – SG – Minnesota Lightning 

One of a few very impressive players from this deep and talented Lightning team. Lee is a skilled and smart guard with positional size at 6’5” and good feel. A versatile scorer that moves extremely well off the ball to score it cutting to the basket but is a more than capable outside shooter with a smooth jumper. All tournament he played his role so well doing whatever was needed of him making winning plays and is a good decision maker. 

Chris Pohl – 2026 – F – Wisconsin Playmakers

The 6’7” forward was one of the more impactful forwards at the 16U level while showing a good scoring ability but doing much more to help get his team reach the title game all while playing up a level. He plays very tough down in the paint on both ends, can score posting up but also moves well for his size and can play with the ball out on the perimeter.
