With a gym full of quality prospects at the NY2LA Junior/Senior Showcase on Saturday in Milwaukee, there was much competition for each of these MVP honors. There were several players that excelled and were candidates for the awards, but it was Jamarion Batemon, Zach Kinziger, and Sekou Konneh who earned the honors. Also below are all the other award winner. 

Jamarion Batemon – 2025 – G – Power 5

Throughout the camp Batemon displayed his tremendous shot making ability from the outside to earn himself co-MVP honors at the 2025 level of the showcase. Even while taking plenty of tough shots off the dribble from the outside with plenty of defensive attention on him, Batemon was hitting his shots at a very high percentage. With his quickness and moves with the ball plus his quick release and deep range, Batemon can be nearly unstoppable when he is hitting his shots. For anyone who has seen much of Batmeon play, it is clear why he has several high major offers and is one of the top players in the regions 2025 class. 

Zach Kinziger – 2025 – G – Team Herro

It has been a big year for Kinziger following his tremendous play on the EYBL and that continued at this showcase winning 2025 co-MVP honors. Throughout the event, the Wisconsin Badgers commit showcased his great playmaking ability off the dribble. Whether it was hitting plenty of shots off the dribble from the outside or getting all the way to the basket, Kinziger was continuously making plays for his team. More than just a scorer, he is a smart player with the ball with a good ability to read the floor and be a good quick decision maker. 

Sekou Konneh – 2024 – SF – Phenom University 

With everything he did during the camp, especially putting up big totals in scoring and rebounding, Konneh earned these MVP honors. This marks back-to-back MVP honors for him as he also won the award at this camp last year. Konneh was dominant in all three of his games during the camp while displaying his growing perimeter skills. The lengthy 6’8” wing forward spent much of the showcase playing with the ball in his hands and was very effective attacking the basket. With his long strides he is so tough to stop once he gets going downhill and uses his great length to finish all around the paint. With his blend of size, length, and athleticism, he was also impacting each game in numerous ways. The offers have continued to roll in for him with ones from Indiana State, Loyola-Chicago, Miami (OH), over the past few months and expect for that to continue.
