"Arlington is a scoring guard that can handle the point guard position very well," said IndiHoops President Brian Hershman. "He's an attacker of the basket, can shoot the three and is a very sturdy, confident guard. The biggest thing he can do to elevate his game is improving his free throw percentage.
The rest of the first-team was rounded out by Jaden Lebell, BJ Caylor, DJ Dudley, and Ivey Word from RC Bulls.
Lebell, playing with Gamepoint Hoops, averaged 8.2 points per game, while shooting 42 percent from the three point line. "Jaden is a nice three-point threat with a high IQ and is very skilled," said Hershman. "I'm looking forward to seeing his development as he grows and gets stronger."
Taylor, who played with Team Determined, averaged 11 points per game, really showing off his scoring ability. "He has a knack for scoring," said Hershman. "He also has a very good feel for the game."
Dudley, who is considered one of the top prospects out west, averaged 14 points per game for Team Dream. "DJ is long, has great court vision, and has all the tools," said Hershman. "The next step for him is to get more competitive and have more of a killer instinct on the floor."
The final player on the first-team, Spivey Word of the RC Bulls, averaged 12.5 points per game, while shooting 55 percent from behind the three-point line.
"He was very consistent all weekend," said Hershman of Word. "He's an excellent threat from the three-point line."
With GamePoint Elite taking home the title and the RC Bulls coming in second, Team Determined followed them with a third-place finish. Hawk Hoops, who lost to Team Determined in the third-place game came in fourth place.
"This was a great start for the west qualifiers," said Hershman. "We look forward to following these teams moving forward."
