Omaha Sports Academy and Lincoln Supreme recently held a college showcase at Union Bank & Trust Sports Complex. It featured players from ages 14U-17U, with most of them being from the OSA/Lincoln Supreme programs. Here were a few standouts from the showcase.
John Mitchell – Lincoln Supreme 15U National/Creighton High School
Mitchell is one of the best in the state at getting buckets, and he’s only a sophomore. He was 5th in the state last year in scoring, as he averaged 24 points a game for his high school squad. He ran with Lincoln Supreme this summer, playing mainly 15U but also joining the 16U squad a few times. His scoring habits didn’t change, as he had multiple 20+ outings. At the College Showcase, he found a lot of success with his outside shot, which opened up driving lanes where he used his crafty finishing abilities to put the ball in the basket.
Ian Medeck – OSA 16U National Freeman/Papillion-La Vista South High School
Medeck was terrific at running in transition and letting his teammates know he was open. His teammates consistently found him and he made sure to finish off 2 whenever there was a defender nearby. Medeck was one of the best communicators that I saw at the camp, which is a very important and usually overlooked talent. He always would be calling out screens, and calling for the ball if he was left open. And when he would catch close to the rim, he would finish strong and off 2 feet, absorbing contact from the defender and using the glass to score.
Caden Reynolds – OSA 17U National Roubicek/Elkhorn High School
Reynolds was torching the net all day. He has a good looking shot that is consistently the same looking jumper each team — his form is polished. He excelled with his catch and shoot ability, but also showed flashes of a good off-the-dribble shooting ability. His teammates knew to find him, especially in the 2nd game, where he was 5/6 from deep.
Landon Pokorski – Lincoln Supreme 14U National/Gretna High School
Pokorski was dropping dimes all day long, whether it was a full-court find to a teammate in transition, or a slick dump down to the opposite block, Pokorski was finding them with a pass. He even threw a few alley-oop passes in the later games. When he wasn’t busy finding teammates for points, he was scoring them himself. His pass fakes led to a few easy layups or short jumpers. Pokorski is a part of a well-rounded freshman class at Gretna High School.
Chase Lett – OSA 17U National Porter/Papillion-La Vista High School
Lett was one of the most effective rebounders we saw, with a few of those being offensive boards which led to 2nd chance points for his team. They weren’t keeping score on the scoreboards for any of the games, but Lett did all the things that would lead his team to wins. Lett didn’t need to score a ton to be successful, but he scored enough to keep his defenders honest when helping off of him. Lett will be a big piece on his high school team, Papillion-La Vista, and they have the potential to make a deep run this year.
